Selective cannulation is an essential step for the success of ERCP. The successful cannulation is influenced by types of disease (such as Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction and duodenal strictu...
Examination of major duodenal papilla (MDP) using a side-viewing duodenoscope is a golden standard. However, side-viewing duodenoscope is not available in some endoscopic centers. Cap-assi...
Examination of major duodenal papilla (MDP) using a standard forward-viewing esophagogastroduodenoscopy (S-EGD) is limited. Until now, side-viewing duodenoscope is the modality of choice t...
This observational Non-Significant Risk (NSR) Study will be used to assess the ability of CapsoCam® Plus (SV-3) capsule endoscope to detect the duodenal papilla and visualize pathology or...
Aim of the present study is the evaluation of the diagnostic value of a cap assisted upper GI-endoscopy compared to a standard upper GI-endoscopy regarding the visualisation and evaluation...
BACKGROUND : Use of a side-viewing endoscope is currently mandatory to examine the major duodenal papilla; however, previous studies have used cap-assisted endoscopy for complete examination of the ...
Cap-assisted esophagogastroduodenoscopy (CA-EGD) using a transparent cap fitted to the tip of the scope has emerged as an alternative method for examination of the major duodenal papilla (MDP). How...
Duodenal involvement in colonic malignancy is a rare event and poses challenge to surgeons as it may entail major resection in a malnourished patient. Nine patients with malignant colo-duodenal fistul...
Many new through-the-scope (TTS) clips are available, and physicians often select clips based on physical characteristics and/or cost However, functional profiles may be equally important and have not...
Clip closure of mucosal defects after colorectal endoscopic submucosal dissection (C-ESD) may decrease the incidence of delayed adverse events. The size of the defect to be closed by conventional clip...
A dilation of the duodenal papilla that is the opening of the juncture of the COMMON BILE DUCT and the MAIN PANCREATIC DUCT, also known as the hepatopancreatic ampulla.
The sphincter of the hepatopancreatic ampulla within the duodenal papilla. The COMMON BILE DUCT and main pancreatic duct pass through this sphincter.
Retrograde flow of gastric juice (GASTRIC ACID) and/or duodenal contents (BILE ACIDS; PANCREATIC JUICE) into the distal ESOPHAGUS, commonly due to incompetence of the LOWER ESOPHAGEAL SPHINCTER.
Surgical incision of the SPHINCTER OF ODDI in the management of COMMON BILE DUCT DISEASES (e.g., CHOLEDOCHOLITHIASIS; and SPHINCTER OF ODDI DYSFUNCTION).
Failure of the SOFT PALATE to reach the posterior pharyngeal wall to close the opening between the oral and nasal cavities. Incomplete velopharyngeal closure is primarily related to surgeries (ADENOIDECTOMY; CLEFT PALATE) or an incompetent PALATOPHARYNGEAL SPHINCTER. It is characterized by hypernasal speech.
