The purpose of this study is to validate the Glasgow-Blatchford score for the stratification of patients with upper gastro-intestinal hemorrhage. This score is easy to calculate. It is mainly based on the hemoglobin, blood pressure and blood urea. if the score is zero, the bleeding is very low risk and the gastrointestinal endoscopy may be delayed and performed as an outpatient.

This is a multi-center randomized controlled trial examining the use of Video Capsule Endoscopy (VCE) to discharge low-moderate risk patients with suspected upper gastrointestinal bleeds (...
Endoscopy is the best means of finding early stage of upper gastrointestinal diseases, especially early cancer and benign ulcers. Currently, most people still undergo upper gastrointestina...
Chinese patients who require gastrointestinal endoscopy will receive an intra-gastric single dose of NPO-11 20ml. The superiority of NPO-11 compared to placebo as a premedication for endos...
This observational study evaluates the safety of gastrointestinal endoscopy in patients on oral anticoagulants (Vitamin K antagonists, rivaroxaban, dabigatran, edoxaban, and apixaban). Thi...
To evaluate the incidence and etiology of small bowel or large bowel bleeding in patients presenting with melena.
Midazolam and propofol are both used for sedation in gastrointestinal endoscopy. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to compare the efficacy and safety of midazolam and propofol in gast...
The European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) and United European Gastroenterology present a list of key performance measures for endoscopy services. We recommend that these performance me...
The role of very early (≤12 hours) endoscopy in nonvariceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding is controversial. We aimed to compare results of very early and early (12-24 hours) endoscopy in patients ...
Reprocessing of flexible endoscopes and endoscopic accessories used in gastrointestinal endoscopy: Position Statement of the European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) and European Society of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates (ESGENA) - Update 2018.
This Position Statement from the European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) and the European Society of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates (ESGENA) sets standards for the reprocessing o...
Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the gastrointestinal tract.
Bleeding in any segment of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT from ESOPHAGUS to RECTUM.
Procedures of applying ENDOSCOPES for disease diagnosis and treatment. Endoscopy involves passing an optical instrument along either natural body pathways such as the digestive tract, or through keyhole incisions to examine the interior parts of the body. With advances in imaging, endoscope, and miniaturization of endosurgical equipment, surgery can be performed during endoscopy.
Non-invasive, endoscopic imaging by use of VIDEO CAPSULE ENDOSCOPES to perform examination of the gastrointestinal tract, especially the small bowel.
Acquired degenerative dilation or expansion (ectasia) of normal BLOOD VESSELS, often associated with aging. They are isolated, tortuous, thin-walled vessels and sources of bleeding. They occur most often in mucosal capillaries of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT leading to GASTROINTESTINAL HEMORRHAGE and ANEMIA.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
