  1. Proposal of a new 'resect and discard' strategy using magnifying narrow band imaging: Pilot study of diagnostic accuracy.

    Digestive Endoscopy 26 Suppl 2:90 (2014) PMID 24750156

    We conducted a pilot study to investigate the feasibility of M-NBI for the new 'resect and discard' strategy with consideration for advanced histology. The present study involved 63 patients. For each polyp, optical diagnosis was independently made using N-NBI and M-NBI, a decision (discard or send...
  2. Endoscopic bile duct and/or pancreatic duct cannulation technique for patients with surgically altered gastrointestinal anatomy.

    Digestive Endoscopy 26 Suppl 2:122 (2014) PMID 24750161

    We explain the basic procedure for bile duct and/or pancreatic duct cannulation with conventional endoscopes and BAE, and modifications of the basic procedure. © 2014 The Authors. Digestive Endoscopy © 2014 Japan Gastroenterological Endoscopy Society....
  3. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided rendezvous procedure for unidentifiable papilla and non-dilated pancreatic duct (with video).

    Digestive Endoscopy 25(4):466 (2013) PMID 23560435

  4. Clinical features of eosinophilic esophagitis: Ten Japanese cases.

    Digestive Endoscopy 25(2):117 (2013) PMID 23367878

      EE was common among relatively young men and was associated with allergic diseases. Longitudinal furrows were observed as the most characteristic endoscopic finding. Esophageal wall thickening was not commonly observed by EUS. © 2012 The Authors. Digestive Endoscopy © 2012 Japan Gastroenterological...
  5. Warning for unprincipled colorectal endoscopic submucosal dissection: Accurate diagnosis and reasonable treatment strategy.

    Digestive Endoscopy 25(2):107 (2013) PMID 23368854 PMCID PMC3615179

    Piecemeal endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) is generally indicated for laterally spreading tumors (LST) >2 cm in diameter. However, the segmentation of adenomatous parts does not affect the histopathological diagnosis and completeness of cure. Thus, possible indications for piecemeal EMR are both a...
  6. Modified single-operator method for double-balloon endoscopy.

    Digestive Endoscopy 24(6):470 (2012) PMID 23078443

    We previously reported on the Single-Operator Method, but here we describe newly modified insertion techniques that facilitate and enhance the performance of DBE by a single endoscopist. Our new technique consists of Hooking Technique, Outside Support, Grasp Scope and Overtube, Continuous Overtube I...
  7. Efficacy of acetic acid-spraying method in diagnosing extension of Barrett's cancer under the squamous epithelium.

    Digestive Endoscopy 24(5):309 (2012) PMID 22925281

    Endoscopic diagnosis of the lateral extension of Barrett's cancer under the squamous epithelium (BCUS) is sometimes difficult because the cancer is unobservable in the esophageal lumen. The aim of the present study was to clarify the endoscopic features of the extension of BCUS and verify the useful...
  8. STOP questionnaire to screen for hypoxemia in deep sedation for young and middle-aged colonoscopy.

    Digestive Endoscopy 24(4):255 (2012) PMID 22725111

      STOP Questionnaire is a validated and easy-to-use screening tool for hypoxemia in outpatient colonoscopy. It has high sensitivity, specificity and negative predictive value. © 2011 The Authors. Digestive Endoscopy © 2011 Japan Gastroenterological Endoscopy Society....
  9. Percutaneous transhepatic cholangioscopy using a flexible digital ureteroscope through a 10-fr vascular sheath: a novel method to evaluate b...

    Digestive Endoscopy 24(3):189 (2012) PMID 22507096

  10. Safety measures for gastrointestinal endoscopy in patients receiving antithrombotic therapy.

    Digestive Endoscopy 24(1):16 (2012) PMID 22211407

    Owing to carelessness of endoscopists, invasive procedures, such as biopsy, are sometimes carried out inadvertently in patients receiving antithrombotic therapy. The aim of the present study was to retrospectively evaluate the actual status of such careless mistakes and the efficacy of new safety me...
