Intermittent bowel obstruction due to a retained wireless capsule endoscope in a patient with a small bowel carcinoid tumour. (1/37)

A 43-year-old man with a history of metastatic carcinoid disease is presented. The patient had symptoms of chronic intermittent abdominal pain two years after undergoing a wireless capsule endoscopy procedure. Radiological examinations revealed a retained capsule endoscope, and the patient underwent exploratory laparotomy with capsule retrieval. To the authors' knowledge, this is the first case presentation of chronic, partial small bowel obstruction caused by unrecognized retention of a capsule endoscope.  (+info)

Suprapapillary needle puncture for common bile duct access: laboratory profile. (2/37)

BACKGROUND: [corrected] Biliary cannulation to perform endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography may be difficult due to technical reasons and often is necessary to perform papillotomy, where complications as pancreatitis and perforation may occur AIM: To show minimal complications by a new model of biliary access by means of the suprapapillary needle puncture and its laboratory profile. PATIENTS AND METHODS: After the approval of the protocol by the Scientific Ethics Committee of the institution a free and informed consent was signed by all patients participating in the study. From July 2003 to August 2004, fulfilling the inclusion and exclusion criteria, 30 patients were selected for endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, using the suprapapillary puncture technique. All patients remained hospitalized, fasting and with basal hydroelectrolytic replacement, were clinically followed up and samples for the determination of serum amylase, lipase and C-RP (C-reactive protein) were collected before and 4 h, 12 h and 24 h after the procedure and reevaluated 60 days after the procedure. Laboratory parameters were submitted to statistical study using analysis of variance for repeated measurements. Multiple comparisons were made based on Wald's statistics RESULTS: The technique was successful in 93.4% (28/30) of the patients. No statistically significant difference regarding to the laboratory profile were observed. Complications related to the technique of papillary puncture occurred in 1/28 patients by not using the guide wire and in 1/28 where mild hemorrhage after dilation of the papillary fistula occurred. Regarding complications related to therapeutic procedures, there were 2/28 retroduodenal perforations, with one (1/30) following unsuccessful puncture and another due to the passage of Dormia's basket through the dilated fistula path. All patients submitted to diagnostic puncture and evaluated 60 days after the procedure presented with the major duodenal papilla of normal aspect. The patients with dilation of the suprapapillary fistula showed the fistula continuing to drain clear bile CONCLUSION: Suprapapillary puncture allows investigative and therapeutic procedures without significant increases in amylase, lipase and C-RP. Patients submitted to diagnostic puncture present complete recovery of the papilla, while dilation of the fistula maintains it pervious later on, but without complications.  (+info)

Capsule endoscopy retention as a helpful tool in the management of a young patient with suspected small-bowel disease. (3/37)

Capsule endoscopy is an easy and painless procedure permitting visualization of the entire small-bowel during its normal peristalsis. However, important problems exist concerning capsule retention in patients at risk of small bowel obstruction. The present report describes a young patient who had recurrent episodes of overt gastrointestinal bleeding of obscure origin, 18 years after small bowel resection in infancy for ileal atresia. Capsule endoscopy was performed, resulting in capsule retention in the distal small bowel. However, this event contributed to patient management by clearly identifying the site of obstruction and can be used to guide surgical intervention, where an anastomotic ulcer is identified.  (+info)

Olympus capsule endoscopy for small bowel examination. (4/37)

The video capsule endoscope has been developed to allow for direct examination of the small bowel in a safe, noninvasive and well-tolerated manner. The Olympus capsule endoscope, recently developed, with technology based on a charge-coupled device (CCD) and with electronic enhancement of image quality, differs from the Given capsule by a high-resolution CCD and an external real-time image viewer (External Viewer) monitor. The most frequent indications for video capsule endoscopy of the small bowel are the diagnosis of obscure gastrointestinal bleeding, angiodysplasia, Crohn's disease, celiac disease, hereditary polyposis syndromes, small bowel tumors. The following technical imaging review examines the current data and recent developments pertaining to diagnosis of small bowel lesions by video capsule endoscopy: indications, contraindications, diagnostic yield, spectrum of lesions.  (+info)

Small bowel capsule endoscopy in 2007: indications, risks and limitations. (5/37)

Capsule endoscopy has revoluzionized the study of the small bowel by providing a reliable method to evaluate, endoscopically, the entire small bowel. In the last six years several papers have been published exploring the possible role of this examination in different clinical conditions. At the present time capsule endoscopy is generally recommended as a third examination, after negative bidirectional endoscopy, in patients with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding. A growing body of evidence suggests also an important role for this examination in other clinical conditions such as Crohn's disease, celiac disease, small bowel polyposis syndromes or small bowel tumors. The main complication of this examination is the retention of the device at the site of a previously unknown small bowel stricture. However there are also some other open issues mainly due to technical limitations of this tool (which is not driven from remote control, is unable to take biopsies, to insufflate air, to suck fluids or debris and sometimes to correctly size and locate lesions). The recently developed double balloon enteroscope, owing to its capability to explore a large part of the small bowel and to take targeted biopsies, although being invasive and time consuming, can overcome some limitations of capsule endoscopy. At the present time, in the majority of clinical conditions (i.e. obscure GI bleeding), the winning strategy seems to be to couple these two techniques to explore the small bowel in a painless, safe and complete way (with capsule endoscopy) and to define and treat the lesions identified (with double balloon enteroscopy).  (+info)

Esophageal capsule endoscopy. (6/37)

Capsule endoscopy is now considered as the first imaging tool for small bowel examination. Recently, new capsule endoscopy applications have been developed, such as esophageal capsule endoscopy and colon capsule endoscopy. Esophageal capsule endoscopy in patients with suspected esophageal disorders is feasible and safe, and could be also an alternative procedure in those patients refusing upper endoscopy. Although large-scale studies are needed to confirm its utility in GERD and cirrhotic patients, current results are encouraging and open a new era in esophageal examination.  (+info)

Colon capsule endoscopy. (7/37)

Wireless capsule endoscopy has become the first imaging tool for small bowel examination. Recently, new capsule endoscopy applications have been developed, such as esophageal capsule endoscopy and colon capsule endoscopy. Clinical trials results have shown that colon capsule endoscopy is feasible, accurate and safe in patients suffering from colonic diseases. It could be a good alternative in patients refusing conventional colonoscopy or when it is contraindicated. Upcoming studies are needed to demonstrate its utility for colon cancer screening and other indications such us ulcerative colitis. Comparative studies including both conventional and virtual colonoscopy are also required.  (+info)

Patency and Agile capsules. (8/37)

Small bowel strictures can be missed by current diagnostic methods. The Patency capsule is a new non-endoscopic dissolvable capsule which has as an objective of checking the patency of digestive tract, in a non-invasive manner. The available clinical trials have demonstrated that the Patency capsule is a good tool for assessment of the functional patency of the small bowel, and it allows identification of those patients who can safely undergo a capsule endoscopy, despite clinical and radiographic evidence of small-bowel obstruction. Some cases of intestinal occlusion have been reported with the Patency capsule, four of them needed surgery. So, a new capsule with two timer plugs (Agile capsule) has been recently developed in order to minimize the risk of occlusion. This new device stars its dissolution process earlier (30 h after ingestion) and its two timer plugs have been designed to begin the disintegration even when the device is blocked in a tight stricture.  (+info)

A capsule endoscope has a solid image sensor introduced into a subject for picking up an image in the subject. The capsule endoscope includes a light-emitting unit for emitting illumination light for illuminating a view field of the solid image sensor; a lens frame for holding a lens to focus an image in the subject on a light-receiving surface of the solid image sensor, the lens frame having an upper end portion located at a position lower than an upper surface of the light-emitting unit; and a shield unit for shielding, from the illumination light, at least a partial area of the upper end portion of the lens frame which receives the illumination light.
Feasibility study shows that a magnetic maneuverable capsule is safe and well-tolerated in the stomach of healthy volunteers. A study from researchers in Germany showed that magnetic maneuvering of a modified capsule endoscope in the stomach of healthy volunteers under clinical conditions is safe, well-tolerated, and technically feasible. Maneuverability of the capsule within the stomach was excellent and visualization of the gastric mucosa, the inner lining of the stomach, was satisfactory in the majority of subjects. Apart from a single experiment performed with a supervising flexible gastroscope, this was the first study to use the system in the stomach of healthy subjects. The study appears in the January issue of GIE: Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, the monthly peer-reviewed scientific journal of the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE)..

Phase I: Participants swallow the tethered capsule endoscope (TCE) so that the distal end of the TCE enters the stomach. The TCE is then slowly withdrawn by the physician in order to visualize the gastroesophageal junction and the esophagus in a retrograde fashion until the upper esophageal sphincter is reached. The image acquisition process is repeated and the participant may be asked to swallow the TCE in up to 7 different positions with 2 swallows per position (no more than 20 swallows total ...
Capsule endoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure used to detect digestive disorders. Capsule endoscopy is a method to record the images of digestive tract which can be further used in diagnosis of the intestinal diseases.
The title of this post might be stretching the truth since endoscopes have been around for quite a long while now, but the PillCam ESO 2 is different from the rest as it was specially designed to view the inner lining of the esophagus. Recently the FDA has stamped their mark of approval for the PillCam ESO 2, and this capsule endoscope from Given Imaging Limited of Israel will be marketed via InScope, a division of a Johnson & Johnson company. Getting the PillCam ESO 2 to work is dead easy - just swallow it and let the miniature cameras lined up on both ends to start snapping away.. A trio of sensor arrays are placed on the patients chest at strategic places, which are subsequently hooked up to a data recorder that is worn on a belt around the waist. When the capsule is swallowed, the patient must lie down, where he/she will then be raised in a series of inclinations within a period of 5 minutes. This will the PillCam ESO 2 to travel through the entire esophagus by riding those peristaltic ...

Wireless capsule endoscopy (WCE) has been intensively researched recently due to its convenience for diagnosis and extended detection coverage of some diseases. Typically, a full recording covering entire human digestive system requires about 8 to 12 hours for a patient carrying a capsule endoscope and a portable image receiver/recorder unit, which produces 120,000 image frames on average. In spite of the benefits of close examination, WCE based test has a barrier for quick diagnosis such that a trained diagnostician must examine a huge amount of images for close investigation, normally over 2 hours. The main purpose of our work is to present a novel machine vision approach to reduce diagnosis time by automatically detecting duplicated recordings caused by backward camera movement, typically containing redundant information, in small intestine. The developed technique could be integrated with a visualization tool which supports intelligent inspection method, such as automatic play speed control. ...

The US Meals and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the first capsule in August 2001 [1,two]. It had been subsequently replaced via the M2A Moreover capsule, that has now been renamed the PillCam SB. The PillCam is currently in its 3rd technology (PillCam SB3). This Model has an improved resolution along with a variable frame price. The frame amount raises to six frames for each next when it is actually shifting speedily, as while in the duodenal sweep, and slows to two frames for every next when going slowly but surely or when stationary ...

The 1966 movie Fantastic Voyage took us on a trip through the human body. Today, a device called the PillCam is capturing the essence of that travel. The PillCam, a small digital camera about the size of a large vitamin tablet, is allowing direct visualization of the small intestine. Until recently, the small intestine, a hollow tube nearly 18 feet long, has been a diagnostic black hole. Traditional endoscopy allows visualization of both ends, leaving the greater part in the middle unseen. The various radiological imaging technologies are less than perfect in diagnosing small bowel disorders.. The PillCam, manufactured by Given Imaging, appears to be filling part of the void with its unique ability to capture images of the small intestine as it transits.. To perform a study using the PillCam, there are no special recommended bowel preparations. Patients should drink clear liquids from noon the day before the procedure, and from 10 p.m. should be NPO (nothing by mouth) except for sips of water ...
Researchers at MIT and Brigham and Womens Hospital have developed a drug capsule that remains in the stomach for up to two weeks after being swallowed, gradually releasing its drug payload over time. This type of drug delivery could eliminate lengthy drug regimens that require repeated doses, which would help to overcome one of the major obstacles to treating diseases such as malaria.
By Jonathan J. Darrow. In January, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of the PillCam COLON 2 as a minimally-invasive means of viewing the colon, a development that is sure to be welcomed by U.S. patients who currently undergo an estimated 14 million colonoscopies each year. While the approval represents a major step forward, the PillCam is unlikely to supplant current procedures just yet.. The colon has traditionally been examined via optical colonoscopy, a procedure perceived by many to be uncomfortable and embarrassing that involves insertion through the rectum of a 5-6 foot long flexible tube as part of an examination that can take 30 to 60 minutes. Air must be pumped in through the rectum in a process called insufflation. Sedatives and pain medication are generally used to help relieve discomfort. In contrast, the PillCam COLON contains a power source, light source, and two tiny cameras encapsulated in an easy-to-swallow pill that produces no pain or even sensation as ...

The medical controversy over whether vaccines may be linked to a gradual increase in autism continues. At least two studies by British physicians have come to contradictory conclusions about whether there is a link between autism and immunization efforts. While a 1998 study of a dozen children found a correlation between the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine and autism, another study published in June 1999 looked at some 500 children and found no association. Both studies have been criticized by the respective opponents of the debate.. Approximately 400,000 people in the United States, males more often than females, are autistic. The condition has been associated with encephalitis, rubella and epilepsy, and 75 percent of autistics have some degree of mental retardation, according to the CDC.. According to the U.S. Office of Special Education and Rehabilitation Services 20th Annual Report to Congress, the number of autistic students has risen from 5,415 in 1991-92, the first year autism ...

I love a good retinol and have been using the Exuviance Super Retinol Concentrate for a while, which is a 1% concentration that I havent had any adverse effects from. I initially thought that The Ordinary Advanced Retinoid 2% was just a stronger concentration, but it turns out that they cant actually be compared because it uses a different form of the ingredient*. This product contains two forms of retinoid actives; one to tackle sagging and lack of firmness and the other, a sustained-delivery form of pure retinol in a protective capsule system. Both forms of retinoid used avoid irritation while delivering better visible results against signs of ageing.. *The Ordinarys Retinol 1% product is comparable to my Exuviance one as they use the same form of pure retinol in the formulation. Advanced Retinoid 2% achieves better visible anti-ageing results than Retinol 1% with less irritation but Retinol 1% is suitable if you are looking specifically for a pure Retinol formula. If you want to know ...

Hellenic Society of Gastroenterology. Annals of Gastroenterology.Journal part.Scientific article.Article.2014 . Creators: Koulaouzidis, Anastasios, Plevris, John N., Docherty, Emily, Douglas, Sarah.Background There are only few reports on the diagnostic yield (DY) of small bowel capsule endoscopy (SBCE) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). We aim to report our SBCE experience in patients with CKD.Methods Retrospective study; case notes of patients with low estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) who underwent SBCE (March 2005-August 2012) for anemia and/or obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (OGIB) were retrieved and abstracted. Severity of CKD was defined according to Renal Association recommendations as: stage 3 (eGFR: 30-59); stage 4 (eGFR: 15-29); and stage 5 (eGFR |15 or on dialysis).Results In the aforementioned period, 69 patients with CKD [stage 3: 65/69 (92.8%), stage 4 or 5:4/69 (7.2%)] had SBCE. 51/65 (78.5%) patients with stage 3 CKD had SBCE due to unexplained anemia and/or

Wireless capsule endoscopy is an advanced application of using ICT in healthcare and medicine. It is a non-invasive method to examine the gastrointestinal (GI) for early diagnosis and treatment. The capsule is equipped with a camera, light source, processing, control unit, and a transmitter to send the captured pictures or videos wirelessly to an external receiver system. The capsule is used to monitor small bowel diseases, esophageal diseases, and colonic diseases. The current data rate of the capsule endoscopes is limited to 1-2 Mbps with 2-3 frames per second and significant compression rates are applied to provide an operation time at least 8 hours inside the body. The data and frame rates might be sufficient for a capsule without locomotion, in which the capsule travels slowly, and the gastric wall movements mainly manage the speed. However, the next generation of the capsules will need remote locomotion and orientation control for fast and precise diagnosis. This application requests high ...
Capsule Endoscopy is usually performed on an outpatient basis. Eight sensors will be place on the patients abdomen. The sensors will be attached to a Data Recorder that will be worn in a belt around the patients waist. The patient will be instructed to swallow the Pill Cam with a small amount of water. The sensors on the patients abdomen will transmit photographs to the Data Recorder as it passes through the digestive tract. The patient will go home and perform normal daily activities but will not be allowed to remove the sensors or Data Recorder. After 8 hours the patient will return to the hospital to have the Data Recorder removed and the sensors. The patient will be instructed to check their stool for passage of the capsule and to report it to the Physician. If the patient does not observe passage of the capsule they must refrain from having an MRI. An X-ray must be performed to determine if the capsule has been passed before an MRI can be performed..

The team compared the base-case strategy of no screening for Barretts esophagus with 2 competing screening strategies.. The first strategy included esophageal capsule endoscopy followed by upper endoscopy if Barretts was suspected.. Within this strategy, esophageal capsule endoscopy was followed by upper endoscopy if there was poor visualization.. The second strategy was standard sedated endoscopy followed by upper endoscopy with biopsy.. The researchers obtained cost estimates from a third-party payer perspective.. For each strategy the team determined lifetime costs, life-years gained, and numbers of esophageal cancers detected.. The researchers also determined death rates from esophageal cancer, and procedural deaths.. The research team found that initial endoscopy followed by upper endoscopy was more expensive but more effective compared with the no screening strategy.. Assuming a theoretical cohort of 10,000 patients with GERD, initial endoscopy followed by upper endoscopy cost ...
In Oct 2007, the FDA authorised a second small bowel capsule (EndoCapsule). Its got comparable features for the PillCam SB, but includes a charge-coupled product chip in place of a complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor chip. FDA acceptance was primarily based on a review of fifty one clients with suspected tiny bowel bleeding who swallowed equally the PillCam SB and the EndoCapsule 40 minutes aside in randomized purchase [6]. The products were comparable, centered on the detection of normal as opposed to abnormal and in diagnostic capability. This study also shown that a capsule does not often journey axially but may perhaps tumble. Furthermore, non-axial movement implies incomplete mucosal visualization, among the constraints of your technologies ...

Using a database of 24 prospective studies comparing the companys PillCam SB, a form of capsule endoscopy, with another mode of diagnosis -- including push enteroscopy and colonoscopy -- the analysis determined that PillCam identified pathology in 70% of exams, double the yield of comparative methods. When individual pathologies were counted, 90% of the pathologies detected by capsule endoscopy could not be identified by any other method. The lead author of the study was Blair Lewis, clinical professor of medicine and gastroenterology at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. Endoscopy is the official journal of the European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy.. ...
The passive movement of capsule endoscopy has geared research to investigate the possibility of developing a locomotion mechanism to allow the control of the capsule movement. The size and the power capacity of capsule endoscopy have been the main bottlenecks to achieve an efficient locomotion design. Running a locomotion device for a long time it seems to be impossible without the utilization of an external magnetic field that has been found to be unsafe for human risks. A short utilization of a locomotion mechanism, which is controlled from outside the capsule, could solve the problems of size and power capacity limitations. The short utilization of the simplified design could solve a major risk of capsule endoscopy which is capsule retention. This paper is set out to investigate the feasibility of developing an internal capsule retention release mechanism to solve the problem of capsule endoscopy retention. This includes the design and configuration of new capsule model to mount the proposed ...
Wireless capsule endoscopy for gastrointestinal (GI) tract is a modern technology that has the potential to replace conventional endoscopy techniques. Capsule endoscopy is a pill-shaped device embedded with a camera, a coin battery, and a data transfer. Without a locomotion system, this capsule endoscopy can only passively travel inside the GI tract via natural peristalsis, thus causing several disadvantages such as inability to control and stop, and risk of capsule retention. Therefore, a locomotion system needs to be added to optimize the current capsule endoscopy. This review summarizes the state-of-the-art locomotion methods along with the desired locomotion features such as size, speed, power, and temperature and compares the properties of different methods. In addition, properties and motility mechanisms of the GI tract are described. The main purpose of this review is to understand the features of GI tract and diverse locomotion methods in order to create a future capsule endoscopy compatible

I am taking 164 mg three times a day. For a total now of 494 mg. .214 pill weight is 164 mg. I would think the new capsules weight shouldnt matter since Ive done two reductions thus far. Its not like Im starting from the beginning. Am I wrong? Dont I still want to stay at .214? I weighed two new capsules already and they were the same. I just wanted to see. So I think Ill be okay anyway. But I have time to think about it bc I still have old left. On another note- my urinary frequency and discomfort was a bit better but not its back with a vengeance. On a scale of 1-10 its a 12. I am so uncomfortable its hard to even distract from it. I was reading that this is a side effect of seroquel ( and really probably all the meds anyway). But I was considering lower that a bit and holding on the gabapentin. I feel like reducing the gabapentin may be having a paradoxil effect on the seroquel? Maybe? I feel like I get some relief in the afternoon which seems to correlate to when the seroquel would be ...
