Acute esophageal necrosis: a rare cause of gastrointestinal bleeding.
Prospective single-arm trial of two-week rabeprazole treatment for ulcer healing after gastric endoscopic submucosal dissection.
Two-week administration of PPI for post-ESD gastric ulcers may be sufficient to aid healing without increasing any adverse effects in cases where there are no possible deteriorating factors on ulcer healing, although large resection and/or resection in the lesser curve may result in delayed heali...
Comparison of magnifying chromoendoscopy and narrow-band imaging in estimation of early colorectal cancer invasion depth: a pilot study.
In terms of diagnostic accuracy with confidence for A and B, the areas under the receiver operating characteristics curve were 0.84 and 0.81 for pit pattern analysis and 0.82 and 0.79 for NBI, respectively. Interobserver agreement for the diagnosis of submucosal deep (>1000 µm) invasion was ev...
Transient unilateral vocal cord paralysis during endoscopic ultrasound.
Does a patent accessory pancreatic duct prevent acute pancreatitis?
The terminal shapes of the APD with low patency were frequent in acute pancreatitis patients, and estimated APD patency was only 21% in acute pancreatitis. A patent APD may function as a second drainage system to reduce the pressure in the main pancreatic duct and prevent acute pancreatitis. © 2...
Primary extra-ampullary duodenal neuroendocrine carcinoma in an adult male.
A primary extra-ampullary duodenal neuroendocrine carcinoma was found in a 40-year-old man who presented with upper abdominal pain and weight loss. Duodenoscopy and hypotonic duodenography revealed a protruding fungating mass with luminal occlusion at the third part of the duodenum (D3). Although th...
REFRACTORY DIVERTICULAR COLITIS WITH PROGRESSIVE ULCERATIVE COLITIS-LIKE CHANGES EXTENDING TO THE RECTUM
A 68-year-old man visited our department because of diarrhea and bloody stools. Colonoscopy revealed diverticula scattered in the sigmoid colon with localized mucosal edema and reddening. The mucosa became somewhat rough 9 months later, and had an erosive, ulcerative colitis (UC)-like appearance aft...
Pedunculated vascular anomaly of the distal duodenum treated by endoscopic polypectomy.
Granulocytic sarcoma of the jejunum diagnosed by biopsies during double-balloon endoscopy before treatment (with video).
Recent advances in endoscopic management of difficult bile duct stones.
Endoscopic treatment is now recognized worldwide as the first-line treatment for bile duct stones. Endoscopic sphincterotomy combined with basket and/or balloon catheter is generally carried out for stone extraction. However, some stones are refractory to treatment under certain circumstances, neces...
