  2. Transient unilateral vocal cord paralysis during endoscopic ultrasound.

    Digestive Endoscopy 23(1):97 (2011) PMID 21198925

  3. Does a patent accessory pancreatic duct prevent acute pancreatitis?

    Digestive Endoscopy 22(4):297 (2010) PMID 21175482

      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...
  4. Comparison of endoscopic band ligation and endoclip closure of colonic perforation: technical feasibility and efficacy in an ex vivo pig mod...

    Digestive Endoscopy 26(5):659 (2014) PMID 24684693

    We aimed to compare the technical feasibility and efficacy of EBL and endoclip use in intraluminal closure of colon perforation, in an ex vivo model. Standardized colonic perforations were created using fresh porcine colon and subsequently closed by full-thickness interrupted sutures, endoclip (Quic...
  5. Clinical features of post-polypectomy bleeding associated with heparin bridge therapy.

    Digestive Endoscopy 26(2):243 (2014) PMID 23730922

    Heparin is given to patients undergoing colonoscopic polypectomy at high risk for thromboembolism. Little is known, however, about how heparin bridge therapy (HB) affects post-polypectomy bleeding (PPB). The present study aimed to identify the clinical features of PPB associated with HB. Data of con...
  6. Efficacy of video capsule endoscopy with flexible spectral imaging color enhancement at setting 3 for differential diagnosis of red spots in...

    Digestive Endoscopy 26(2):228 (2014) PMID 23730949

    Red spots on the small bowel mucosa are observed in patients with angioectasia and enteritis. The present study investigated the effectiveness of capsule endoscopy (CE)-flexible spectral imaging color enhancement (FICE) as a method for differential diagnosis of the two conditions. The subjects were...
  7. Ultrathin endoscope-assisted self-expandable metallic stent placement following initial unsuccessful attempt in malignant upper gastrointest...

    Digestive Endoscopy 26(2):200 (2014) PMID 23751083

    We analyzed the feasibility, safety and usefulness of ultrathin endoscopy (UTE)-guided SEMS placement. This study involved 24 patients with upper gastrointestinal obstruction and unsuccessful initial attempts to place SEMS using conventional endoscopy. After completely passing a UTE across the stric...
  8. Diagnosis of laterally spreading tumors (LST) in the rectum and selection of treatment: characteristics of each of the subclassifications of...

    Digestive Endoscopy 25(6):608 (2013) PMID 23369130

    In recent years, endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) has often been used for the treatment of laterally spreading tumors (LST) of the rectum. The present study was carried out with the aim of clarifying the characteristics of each of the subtypes of LST in the rectum that are often treated by ESD...
  9. Efficacy of endoscopic nasobiliary drainage for the prevention of post-endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography pancreatitis and chola...

    Digestive Endoscopy 25(4):453 (2013) PMID 23363031

    The aim of the present study was to investigate whether it is reasonable to insert an endoscopic nasobiliary drainage (ENBD) tube in patients with endoscopic sphincterotomy (EST) and repeated clearance of common bile duct (CBD) stones. Patients with choledocholithiasis who underwent EST and CBD ston...
  10. Classification of patients who experience a higher distress level to transoral esophagogastroduodenoscopy than to transnasal esophagogastrod...

    Digestive Endoscopy 25(4):397 (2013) PMID 23368664

    In Japanese routine clinical practice, endoscopy is generally carried out without sedation. The present study aimed to identify the factors essential for appropriate selection of transnasal esophagogastroduodenoscopy (TN-EGD) as an alternative to unsedated transoral esophagogastroduodenoscopy (TO-EG...
