Double staining with crystal violet and methylene blue is appropriate for colonic endocytoscopy: an in vivo prospective pilot study.
Endocytoscopy (EC) at ultra-high magnification enables in vivo visualization of cellular atypia of gastrointestinal mucosae. Clear images are essential for precise diagnosis by EC. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the optimal staining method for EC in the colon. Thirty prospectively enro...
Edema of the interarytenoid mucosa seen on endoscopy is related to endoscopic-positive esophagitis (EE) and is an independent predictor of E...
We assessed esophago-gastroendoscopic findings related to GERD, specifically endoscopic-positive esophagitis (EE), laryngopharyngeal findings, and GERD symptoms on the 12-question frequency scale for the symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (FSSG). Then, independent predictors of EE were anal...
Endoscopic ultrasound-guided rendezvous procedure for unidentifiable papilla and non-dilated pancreatic duct (with video).
Clinical features of eosinophilic esophagitis: Ten Japanese cases.
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...
Warning for unprincipled colorectal endoscopic submucosal dissection: Accurate diagnosis and reasonable treatment strategy.
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...
Modified single-operator method for double-balloon endoscopy.
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...
Efficacy of acetic acid-spraying method in diagnosing extension of Barrett's cancer under the squamous epithelium.
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...
STOP questionnaire to screen for hypoxemia in deep sedation for young and middle-aged colonoscopy.
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....
Percutaneous transhepatic cholangioscopy using a flexible digital ureteroscope through a 10-fr vascular sheath: a novel method to evaluate b...
Safety measures for gastrointestinal endoscopy in patients receiving antithrombotic therapy.
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...
