  1. Endoscopic mucosal resection of a rectal malakoplakia in a healthy adult.

    Digestive Endoscopy 26(6):749 (2014) PMID 24373062

    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...
  2. Pyloric gland adenoma observed by magnifying endoscopy with narrow-band imaging.

    Digestive Endoscopy 26(6):755 (2014) PMID 25115548

  3. Effective hemostasis for rupture of gastric exposed aneurysm with over-the-scope clip (with video).

    Digestive Endoscopy 26(5):681 (2014) PMID 25040721

  4. Large area of walled-off pancreatic necrosis successfully treated by endoscopic necrosectomy using a grasping-type scissors forceps.

    Digestive Endoscopy 26(3):474 (2014) PMID 23742185

    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...
  5. Short-type and conventional single-balloon enteroscopes for endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography in patients with surgically alter...

    Digestive Endoscopy 26 Suppl 2:156 (2014) PMID 24750167

    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...
  6. Biliary sphincterotomy is not required for bile duct stent placement.

    Digestive Endoscopy 26(1):87 (2014) PMID 23517140 PMCID PMC4159089

    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...
  7. Recognition of goblet cells upon endocytoscopy indicates the presence of gastric intestinal metaplasia.

    Digestive Endoscopy 26(1):52 (2014) PMID 23551261

    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...
  8. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided antegrade diathermic dilation followed by self-expandable metallic stent placement for anastomotic stricture af...

    Digestive Endoscopy 26(1):121 (2014) PMID 24118281

  9. Comparison of endoscopic ultrasonography-guided fine-needle aspiration cytology results with and without the stylet in 3364 cases.

    Digestive Endoscopy 25(3):303 (2013) PMID 23368962

    Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration cytology (EUS-FNA) is traditionally carried out with the stylet, as it is believed to prevent blockage or contamination of the needle by tissue coming from the gastrointestinal wall. However, this recommendation has not been demonstrated on an empi...
  10. Follow up after endoscopic resection in submucosal invasive colorectal cancers.

    Digestive Endoscopy 25 Suppl 2:6 (2013) PMID 23617641

    We principally show the long-term outcomes after follow up of SM-CRC resected endoscopically based on a report of the literature and our experience in Japan. The long-term outcomes of low-risk SM-CRC endoscopically resected alone or high-risk SM-CRC with additional surgical resection with lymph node...
