  • argon
  • Endoscopic injection of bleeding peptic ulcers with adrenaline has been practised since the 1970s, endoscopic heater probes have been used since the 1980s, and Argon plasma coagulation has been used since the 1990s. (wikipedia.org)
  • merit
  • Previous studies showed high risk of esophageal cancer in non-dysplastic BE (approximately 1 to 2 percent/year) and, based on small retrospective surgical case series, there appeared to be some merit to endless continued surveillance. (gastro.org)
  • diagnostic
  • Narrow-band imaging is an imaging technique for endoscopic diagnostic medical tests, where light of specific blue and green wavelengths is used to enhance the detail of certain aspects of the surface of the mucosa. (wikipedia.org)
  • polyps
  • This includes therapeutic procedures such as stricture dilatation, palliative stenting, dye spray colonoscopy, removal of polyps, insertion of Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy (PEG) and Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) procedures. (qehkl.nhs.uk)
  • segment
  • Voor patiënten met hoog-gradige dysplasie en mucosaal carcinoom is de gouden standaard nu endoscopische resectie van afwijkingen, gevolgd door radiofrequente ablatie voor verwijdering van het resterende Barrett segment. (uva.nl)
  • Barrett segment length was recorded at the time of the first EGD. (annals.org)
  • Therapy
  • Although all tumors were resected without difficulty, 12.5% developed bleeding (which was managed successfully by endoscopic therapy). (wikipedia.org)
  • develop
  • The investigators goal is to develop a multispectral endoscopic platform that can be used to survey a large surface area and, potentially, serve as a 'red flag' for microendoscopic imaging of small areas. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Condition
  • The condition is named after the Australian-born British thoracic surgeon Norman Barrett (1903-1979), who described it in 1950. (wikipedia.org)
