New method of direct percutaneous endoscopic jejunostomy tube placement using balloon-assisted enteroscopy with fluoroscopy.
Direct percutaneous endoscopic jejunostomy (DPEJ) is a useful method to provide nutrition to patients with a variety of gastrointestinal (GI) problems. The present study describes a new method of DPEJ using balloon-assisted-enteroscopy. This observational, retrospective, single-arm case study conduc...
Community gastroenterologists can learn diminutive colon polyp histology characterization with narrow band imaging by a computer-based teach...
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the impact of a computer-based teaching module on the performance of community gastroenterologists for characterization of diminutive polyps (≤5 mm) using narrow band imaging video clips. Eighty videos were distributed in pre- and post-test DVD along with...
Endoscopic mucosal resection of a rectal malakoplakia in a healthy adult.
We describe a malakoplakia that developed in a healthy young woman and was treated by endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR). A 40-year-old woman with a history of taking oral contraceptives until one year earlier was referred to our hospital with anal bleeding and constipation. A colonoscopy carried ou...
Pyloric gland adenoma observed by magnifying endoscopy with narrow-band imaging.
Effective hemostasis for rupture of gastric exposed aneurysm with over-the-scope clip (with video).
Large area of walled-off pancreatic necrosis successfully treated by endoscopic necrosectomy using a grasping-type scissors forceps.
We have encountered cases in which EN has not been satisfactorily carried out, and there is pressure for further innovation in EN. Here, we describe a case of a large area of WOPN that was successfully treated by EN with endoscopic submucosal dissection and associated techniques, which facilitated r...
Short-type and conventional single-balloon enteroscopes for endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography in patients with surgically alter...
We compared outcomes between groups with short-type SBE and conventional SBE. With regard to reaching the blind end, mean time to reach the blind end, diagnostic success rate, therapeutic success rate, mean procedure time, and complication rate, there were no statistical differences between the two...
Biliary sphincterotomy is not required for bile duct stent placement.
The aim of the present study was to assess the success and outcome of bile duct stent placement without the use of endoscopic biliary sphincterotomy (EBS). Over a period of 10 years and 9 months, all patients undergoing endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) were prospectively identif...
Recognition of goblet cells upon endocytoscopy indicates the presence of gastric intestinal metaplasia.
We first carried out narrow band imaging (NBI) endoscopy to look for suspicious areas of gastric IM. A prototype endocytoscope with a magnification of 450× was used to re-examine these areas. Areas examined were biopsied for histological comparison. Presence of goblet cells was considered as represe...
Endoscopic ultrasound-guided antegrade diathermic dilation followed by self-expandable metallic stent placement for anastomotic stricture af...
