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...
Estimation and comparison of cumulative incidences of biliary self-expandable metallic stent dysfunction accounting for competing risks.
We introduced the concept of a competing risk analysis and illustrated its impact on the evaluation of SEMS outcomes using hypothetical and actual data. Our illustrative study included 476 consecutive patients who underwent SEMS placement for unresectable distal malignant biliary obstruction. A sign...
Diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori infection in gastric mucosa by endoscopic features: a multicenter prospective study.
Endoscopic features corresponding to pathological findings in the Sydney System have not been identified, and endoscopic diagnosis of chronic gastritis has not yet been established. To establish the diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection in gastric mucosa by endoscopic features, a pr...
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...
