Usefulness of confocal laser endomicroscopy for predicting postoperative recurrence in patients with Crohn's disease: a pilot study.

Confocal laser endomicroscopy (CLE) has been shown to predict relapse in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), but its value in the detection of postoperative recurrence in Crohn's disease (CD) is unknown. The aims of this pilot study performed in CD patients after ileocolonic resection were (1) to compare the macroscopic appearance of the neoterminal ileum according to the endoscopic Rutgeerts score with the microscopic findings provided by CLE 6 to 12 months after surgery, and (2) to assess the predictive val...

Development and validation of a video-based cold snare polypectomy assessment tool (with videos).


A colon polypectomy report card improves polypectomy competency: results of a prospective quality improvement study (with video).

Polypectomy competency varies significantly among providers. Poor polypectomy technique may lead to interval cancer and/or adverse events. Our aim was to determine the effect of a polypectomy skills report card upon subsequent polypectomy performance.

Risk factors for early and late adenoma recurrence after advanced colorectal endoscopic resection at an expert Western center.

Few large Western series examine risk factors for recurrence after endoscopic resection (ER) of large (≥20 mm) colorectal laterally spreading tumors. Recurrence beyond initial surveillance is seldom reported and differences between residual/recurrent adenoma and late recurrence are not scrutinised. We report the incidence of recurrence at successive surveillance intervals, identify risk factors for recurrent/residual adenoma and late recurrence, and describe the outcomes of ER of recurrent adenomas.

Incidence of metachronous gastric cancer in patients whose primary gastric neoplasms were discovered after Helicobacter pylori eradication.

The incidence of metachronous gastric cancer (MGC) in patients whose primary gastric neoplasm is discovered after Helicobacter pylori (H pylori) eradication remains unclear. Here, we evaluated the long-term effect of previous H pylori eradication on development of MGC after endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD).

Erosion of Duodenal Metal Object into Inferior Vena Cava: An Unusual Cause of Bilateral Deep Vein Thromboses.

Intracystic papillary neoplasm preoperatively diagnosed by high-quality cytology derived from endoscopic nasogallbladder drainage.

The road less traveled: esophageal dissection during passage of a duodenoscope.

Usefulness of risk stratification models for colorectal cancer based on fecal hemoglobin concentration and clinical risk factors.

We aimed to develop risk stratification models for advanced colorectal neoplasia (ACRN) and colorectal cancer (CRC) based on fecal hemoglobin (f-Hb) concentration and clinical risk factors.

Safety and efficacy of metal stents for malignant colonic obstruction in patients treated with bevacizumab.

The aim of this study was to examine clinical outcomes and adverse events (AEs) of self-expandable metal stents (SEMSs) in the management of malignant colonic obstruction (MCO).

Depressed-type adenoma in the colon is associated with advanced pathology.

White-globe appearance in gastric high-grade dysplasia.

Importance of tissue acquisition in gastric submucosal tumor with unusual EUS features.

Setting minimum standards for training in EUS and ERCP: results from a prospective multicenter study evaluating learning curves and competence among advanced endoscopy trainees.

Minimum EUS and ERCP volumes that should be offered per trainee in "high quality" advanced endoscopy training programs (AETPs) are not established. We aimed to define the number of procedures required by an "average" advanced endoscopy trainee (AET) to achieve competence in technical and cognitive EUS and ERCP tasks to help structure AETPs.

Differential risk of disease progression between isolated anastomotic ulcers and mild ileal recurrence after ileocolonic resection in patients with Crohn's disease.

It is standard of care to perform ileocolonoscopy within a year of ileocolonic resection for Crohn's disease (CD) and to guide management decisions based on the Rutgeert score (RS). The modified RS subdivides i2 into lesions confined to the anastomosis (i2a) or >5 aphthous lesions in the neoterminal ileum (i2b). There is uncertainty, however, if i2a lesions incur an increased risk of disease recurrence. The primary aim of this study was to compare the rates of endoscopic progression between i2a and i2b when...

Classical features of Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, in images.

The pocket-creation method facilitates colonic endoscopic submucosal dissection (with video).

Colonic endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is more difficult than rectal ESD because of poor maneuverability of the endoscope due to physiological flexion, peristalsis and respiratory movements. The aim of this study is to assess the usefulness of the pocket-creation method (PCM) for colonic ESD compared with the conventional method (CM) regardless of lesion shape or location.

Removal of intraductal migrated biliary fully covered self-expandable metal stents: the "SEMS in SEMS" technique.

Painful anal lump.

Endoscopic stricturotomy versus ileocolonic resection in the treatment of ileocolonic anastomotic strictures in Crohn's disease.

Endoscopic stricturotomy is a novel technique in the treatment of anastomotic strictures in Crohn's disease (CD). The aim of this study was to compare the outcome of patients with ileocolonic anastomotic stricture treated with endoscopic stricturotomy (ESt) versus ileocolonic resection (ICR).

Jumbo biopsy forceps versus cold snares for removing diminutive colorectal polyps: A prospective randomized controlled trial.

Cold snare polypectomy (CSP) and jumbo forceps polypectomy (JFP) have been shown to be effective for removing diminutive colorectal polyps (DCPs) (≤5 mm). However, no study has compared complete resection rates between CSP and JFP for DCPs. The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of JFP to CSP for the removal of DCPs.

A phase 3, multicenter, prospective, single-blinded, noninferiority, randomized controlled trial on the performance of a novel esophageal stent with an anti-reflux valve (with video).

Self-expanding metal stents (SEMSs) when deployed across the gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) can lead to reflux with risks of aspiration. A SEMS with a tricuspid anti-reflux valve (SEMS-V) was designed to address this issue. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of this stent.

Yield of repeat colonoscopy in asymptomatic individuals with a positive fecal immunochemical test and recent colonoscopy.

A fecal immunochemical test (FIT) is often repeated annually, even after a recent colonoscopy. However, there are no published data on the proper approach to FIT-positive patients after a recent colonoscopy. We compared colorectal cancer (CRC) and advanced colorectal neoplasia (ACRN) prevalence based on the interval since the last colonoscopy.

Bleeding pyogenic granuloma of the ampulla of Vater: a rare cause of severe chronic anemia.

Impact of the supine position versus left horizontal position on colonoscopy insertion: a 2-center, randomized controlled trial.

Colonoscopy insertion is painful for some patients, constituting one of the main barriers to screening colonoscopy. Few studies have assessed the impact of the supine position (SP) on colonoscopy insertion, especially for unsedated patients. The aim of this randomized controlled trial (RCT) is to clarify this issue.
