Positive coeliac serology in irritable bowel syndrome patients with normal duodenal biopsies: Video capsule endoscopy findings and HLA-DQ typing may affect clinical management. (1/222)

OBJECTIVES: To investigate a group of IBS patients (Rome criteria) with positive coeliac serology (EMA, TTG, IgG or IgA AGA) and normal small bowel biopsies. Video capsule endoscopy (VCE) findings of the small bowell were compared with DQ-typing. METHODS: Twenty-two patients with chronic abdominal pain (with or without diarrhea) and at least one positive result of any of the coeliac serological markers (AGA, TTG, EMA) and normal duodenal biopsy were enrolled and underwent VCE. Twelve healthy volunteers with VCE served as control group. Coeliac related HLA DQ2 or DQ8 markers were determined. RESULTS: 12/ 22 (55%) patients had small bowel abnormalities with VCE. No mucosal abnormalities were recognized in the control group (p = 0.002). Inflammatory changes were classified as moderate or pronounced. Eight patients (36%) had moderate changes and four patients (18%) demonstrated pronounced changes. Only 6 of the 21 IBS patients were positive for DQ2 and/or DQ8. CONCLUSIONS: The patients in this study fulfilled the diagnostic Rome criteria for Irritable Bowel Syndrome. We suggest that patients with positive coeliac serology and normal duodenal biopsies should undergo HLA typing. In patients positive for DQ2 and/or DQ8, a VCE should be performed. Patients with mucosal abnormalities compatible with CD should be considered as a group distinct from IBS patients and could be tested with gluten challenge or treated with a gluten free diet.  (+info)

Gastrointestinal bleeding of obscure origin undetected by multiple tests for fecal occult blood and diagnosed only by capsule endoscopy: a case report. (2/222)

The term gastrointestinal bleeding of obscure origin is used to describe bleeding of unknown origin that persists or recurs after a negative initial esophagogastroduodenoscopy and colonoscopy. We report the case of a middle-aged woman with gastrointestinal bleeding of obscure origin who had 9 stool specimens that tested negative for occult blood but was found to have adenocarcinoma of the distal duodenum on capsule endoscopy. This case illustrates that, in the presence of unexplained iron-deficiency anemia, multiple negative fecal occult blood tests do not exclude the presence of GI blood loss, and that capsule endoscopy is a valuable diagnostic study in this context.  (+info)

Diagnostic yield and safety of capsule endoscopy. (3/222)

INTRODUCTION: the capsule endoscopy (CE), from his approval, has become a first line diagnostic procedure for the study of the small bowel disease. The aim of this study is to report our experience since the implantation of this technique in our hospital. MATERIAL AND METHODS: retrospective review of the CE undertaken in Department of Endoscopy. There was gathered in every case the age, sex, motive of consultation, previous diagnostic procedures, capsule endoscopy findings and complication of the technique. One took to end a descriptive and analytical analysis. RESULTS: there was achieved a total of 416 explorations in 388 patients. The obscure gastrointestinal bleeding was the most frequent indication (83.30%) followed by suspected Crohn s disease (7.5%). Angiodisplasia was the endoscopic lesion more frequently detected (42.2%), especially, in patients with digestive bleeding of obscure origin (OR 3.13 p < 0.001), followed by the flebectasia (10.6%) and the ulcer suspicious of Crohn s disease (9.9%). The global diagnostic yield as for the detection of injuries was 77.34% with a case of "not defecation of the capsule" and therefore need of laparotomy. CONCLUSIONS: the capsule endoscopy is a technique consolidated and as his potential is known, his indications are extended. The obscure gastrointestinal bleeding is the most frequent indication and the angiodisplasia the most identified injury. Once known his diagnostic yield, larger studies are needed that assess the influence of capsule endoscopy on clinical outcoumes.  (+info)

Use of video capsule endoscopy in a patient with an implantable cardiac defibrillator. (4/222)

Video capsule endoscopy (VCE) is a useful diagnostic tool in patients with unknown blood loss, particularly when there is a high suspicion of small bowel disease, but because of its use of radio frequency, it is relatively contraindicated in patients with a cardiac device. We report the case of a patient with an implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD) who underwent VCE because of anaemia and previous surgery for colorectal cancer. Device interrogations were performed before and after the procedure. No interference between VCE and ICD was found. VCE is feasible and relatively safe in patients with ICDs.  (+info)

Does capsule endoscopy recognise gastric antral vascular ectasia more frequently than conventional endoscopy? (5/222)

BACKGROUND: Gastric antral vascular ectasia (GAVE) is a rare cause of obscure gastrointestinal bleeding which can be difficult to recognise endoscopically. Capsule endoscopy is primarily designed to image the small bowel, but may identify gastric and colonic lesions. There have been few reported cases of GAVE diagnosed by capsule endoscopy in the literature. OBJECTIVE: Our aim was to assess the frequency of GAVE in patients with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding referred for capsule endoscopy. DESIGN: Case series. SETTING: This study was conducted in a tertiary referral hospital. PATIENTS. This study comprised 128 consecutive patients with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding. INTERVENTIONS: All patients underwent capsule endoscopy. RESULTS. Six patients were diagnosed with GAVE on the basis of the capsule endoscopy findings (4.7%, five female, median age 71.5 years). All patients had previously had numerous gastrointestinal investigations prior to capsule endoscopy. Five patients to date have been treated with argon plasma coagulation of their vascular lesions. This has resulted in stabilisation of their haemoglobin and cessation of blood transfusions in 4/5 cases with an average follow up period of 15 months. CONCLUSIONS: GAVE is commonly missed at gastroscopy and accounted for 4.7% of patients referred for capsule endoscopy with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (in our series). This case series represents the largest number of GAVE recognised by capsule endoscopy. In the presence of any of the reported risk/associated factors for GAVE the gastroenterologist interpreting the capsule images should have a high index of suspicion.  (+info)

The role of capsule endoscopy combined with double-balloon enteroscopy in diagnosis of small bowel diseases. (6/222)

BACKGROUND: The diagnosis of small bowel diseases remains relatively inefficient using traditional imaging techniques. Capsule endoscopy (CE) and double-balloon enteroscopy (DBE) are two novel methods of enteroscopy for examining the entire small bowel. The aim of this study was to evaluate the detection rate and diagnostic accuracy of CE and DBE in patients with suspected small bowel diseases and to investigate the clinical significance of combined use of these two novel modalities. METHODS: Two hundred and eighteen patients were evaluated for suspected small bowel disease, including 116 with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding and 102 with obscure abdominal pain or chronic diarrhea. One hundred and sixty-five out of these patients underwent CE first and 53 patients underwent DBE (under anesthesia with propofol) first. DBE was recommended after negative or equivocal evaluation on CE and vise versa. Introduction of the endoscope during DBE was either orally or anally and the patients were referred for a second procedure using the opposite route several days later when no abnormalities were found on the first procedure. The detection rates, diagnostic accuracy, tolerance and frequency of adverse events of these two modalities were then analyzed. RESULTS: Failure of the procedure was seen in one patient with CE and in two patients with DBE. Sixty-four DBE procedures were carried out in 51 patients; by the oral route in 34 cases, the anal route in 4 and both routes in 13 cases. The overall detection rate of small bowel diseases using CE (72.0%, 118/164) was superior to that with DBE (41.2%, 21/51); chi(2) = 16.1218, P < 0.0001. The diagnostic rate (51.8%, 85/164) was also higher than that with the latter procedure (39.2%, 20/51), but was not significantly different (chi(2) = 2.4771, P > 0.05). Furthermore, the detection rate of small bowel diseases in patients with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding using CE (88.0%, 88/100) was superior to that of DBE (60.0%, 9/15); chi(2) = 7.7457, P = 0.0054. Lesions were detected by DBE in 1 out of 4 patients in whom CE had a negative result. Suspected findings by CE were confirmed by DBE combined with biopsy in 12 out of 15 patients. On the other hand, small bowel lesions were identified by CE in all 3 patients after negative evaluations by DBE. There were no severe complications during or after either of the two procedures. CONCLUSIONS: The detection rate of small bowel diseases by CE is very high. CE should be selected for the initial diagnosis in patients with suspected small bowel diseases, especially in patients with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding. DBE appears to be inferior to CE in the diagnosis of small bowel diseases. However, it was shown that abnormalities could still be identified by DBE in patients with normal images or used to confirm suspected findings from CE. DBE can also serve as a good complementary approach after an initial diagnostic imaging using CE.  (+info)

Intermittent bowel obstruction due to a retained wireless capsule endoscope in a patient with a small bowel carcinoid tumour. (7/222)

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)

Capsule endoscopy retention as a helpful tool in the management of a young patient with suspected small-bowel disease. (8/222)

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)

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

Objective: Capsule endoscopy is a novel investigation for diagnosing small bowel diseases. However, its interpretation is highly subjective and the potential variability may compromise its accuracy and reliability. Here we studied the potential inter-observer variations on the interpretation of capsule endoscopy. Method: Two residents and one specialist in gastroenterology independently reviewed 58 capsule endoscopy studies in the same sequential order. The gastric transit time, small bowel transit time, and the most significant small bowel lesion were independently recorded. The consensus transit time was determined by the joint review of the three gastroenterologists. The gold standard for small bowel diagnoses was based on final surgical, endoscopic findings or consensus diagnosis. Results: Clinically significant and relevant small bowel lesions were found in 32 (55%) cases by consensus review. The overall mean accuracy in determining gastric emptying time, small bowel transit time and ...
Although tarry stool is a common feature of peptic ulcer bleeding, it can also be a manifestation of lower gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding. Examples include colonic cancer, small bowel tumors, and small or large bowel ulcers induced by aspirin or painkillers (NSAIDs). However, clinicians are often misled by the finding of peptic ulcers as the source of GI bleeding. It is not uncommon to detect peptic ulcers incidentally but the source of bleeding is actually in the lower GI tract (e.g. NSAID- or aspirin-induced small or large bowel bleeding ulcers, small bowel tumors, or colorectal cancer). Delay in diagnosis of lower GI bleeding often leads to serious consequences.. The preferred investigations for lower GI bleeding are colonoscopy plus video capsule endoscopy. Colonoscopy has been the gold standard for the diagnosis of colonic bleeding. The risk of colonoscopy-induced complications such as bleeding or perforation is less than 1 in 3500. Video capsule endoscopy is a non-invasive, safe and ...
Methods: Colonoscopy is a technique for examine colon cancer, polyps. In endoscopy, video capsule is universally used mechanism for finding gastrointestinal stages. But both the mechanisms are used to find the colon cancer or colorectal polyp. The Automatic Polyp Detection sub-challenge conducted as part of the Endoscopic Vision Challenge (http://endovis.grand-challenge.org). Method: Colonoscopy may be primary way of improve the ability of colon cancer detection especially flat lesions. Which otherwise may be difficult to detect. Recently, automatic polyp detection algorithms have been proposed with various degrees of success. Though polyp detection in colonoscopy and other traditional endoscopy procedure based images is becoming a mature field, due to its unique imaging characteristics, detecting polyps automatically in colonoscopy is a hard problem. So the proposed video capsule cam supports to diagnose the polyps accurate and easy to identify its pattern. Existing methodology mainly concentrated on

The meta-analysis by Triester and colleagues shows that capsule endoscopy is clearly superior to push enteroscopy and small bowel barium radiography for identifying diagnostic abnormalities in patients with OGIB. This was also true for "clinically important findings," defined as lesions definitely or probably the source of bleeding, as determined by the authors of each included study. This is not surprising, as capsule endoscopy has a farther reach and thus will detect lesions farther in the small intestine than push enteroscopy, and small bowel radiography will not detect superficial lesions of the small intestine, the most common sources of OGIB. Little difference, however, existed between capsule endoscopy and push enteroscopy in detecting tumors, arguably the most important lesion causing OGIB. A diagnostic test is only as good as the management to which it leads. In the opinion of this reviewer, a definitive therapeutic procedure (e.g., surgery) is necessary for OGIB only if a tumor is ...
Capsule Endoscopy allows your doctor to examine the lining of the middle part of your gastrointestinal tract, which includes the three portions of the small intestine (duodenum, jejunum, ileum). You will swallow a pill sized capsule camera. You might hear your doctor or other medical staff refer to capsule endoscopy as capsule enteroscopy, or wireless capsule endoscopy.

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..

Clinical studies of wireless capsule endoscopy have focused on situations in which the traditional endoscope cannot visualize the entire length of the
In total, 181 patients with OGIB were recruited into the study. After exclusion of 28 patients 153 patients were randomized and CapsoCam SV-1 (n=78) or PillCam SB 3 (n=75) was administered. CapsoCam SV-1 detected more cases of bleeding (31/79, diagnostic yield 39.7%) compared with PillCam SB 3 (26/75, diagnostic yield 34.6%, NS). Transit time of both capsules was not different. Evaluation time with PillCam SB 3 was superior to CapsoCam SV-1 (27 vs. 40 min, P=0.01). In total, 95% of the physicians were satisfied with each capsule system and evaluation software. The acceptance rate of the patients to retrieve the CapsoCam SV-1 was high. Adverse events/serious adverse events were 17.9%/1.3% with CapsoCam SV-1 and 16%/0% with PillCam SB 3. Rebleeding rate was 28.75% within 3 months ...

Results Video capsule endoscopy was performed in all patients before SBE. Thirty-seven SBE procedures were performed on 26 patients (20 males), mean age; 64 (range 29-83). Indications were: Iron deficiency anaemia (4), obscure gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding (18), suspected Crohns disease (2), abnormal radiology (2), abnormal video-capsule endoscopy findings (10). Thirty-two were antegrade and five were retrograde procedures. 16 (42%) procedures were therapeutic. Histological biopsies were taken in 6 (17%). Two patients required general anaesthesia (1 had a previously failed SBE). Mean sedation doses were midazolam: 4.8 mg (range 2.5-10), fentanyl 85.7 μg (range 50-100). Mean comfort score=2 (range 2-5), mean sedation score 2 (range 2-3). Overall diagnostic yield was 61%. Diagnoses: Angiodysplasia n=10, normal n=15, ulceration n=7, Crohns disease n=1, Other n=5. Complications: none. ...
It is clear from these and other studies that patients with normal ileoscopy at colonoscopy have been found to have small bowel abnormalities which are thought to be Crohns disease at capsule endoscopy and appeared to respond to treatment for this condition. Mow and colleagues,16 Hume and colleagues,19 and Lo20 suggested that capsule enteroscopy may be especially helpful in distinguishing Crohns disease from ulcerative colitis in patients with indeterminate colitis, perhaps especially in those in whom ileal pouch formation is being considered. WCE has also been used in children with gastrointestinal blood loss, anaemia, or abdominal pain, and cases of Crohns disease are a moderately common finding in this group.21,22 In India, WCE was able to provide images of small intestinal tuberculosis which can be difficult to distinguish from Crohns disease.23. In Voderholzers paper published in this issue of Gut,24 the frequency of small intestinal Crohns disease found by WCE in a consecutive series ...
Iron deficiency anemia (IDA) is a common problem worldwide. The initial workup usually involves performing a bidirectional endoscopy. When negative, the small bowel could be the source of obscure gastrointestinal bleeding presenting as IDA. The next best diagnostic test is uncertain. Wireless capsule endoscopy (WCE) is a non-invasive new technology that allows examination of the entire small bowel. Methods: We designed a randomized controlled pilot study to outline the challenges for conducting a full randomized controlled trial (RCT) to determine if WCE should be first-line investigation in such cases. 109 patients were enrolled; 55 intervention (WCE) & 54 controls (standard of care) (SC). Results: Two-years post-randomization there was no difference in anemia between the two groups. Conclusion: Few methodological hurdles for conducting a full RCT were identified ...
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 ...
During the early phases (phases 1 and 2), researchers assess safety, side effects, optimal dosages and risks/benefits. In the later phase (phase 3), researchers study whether the treatment works better than the current standard therapy. They also compare the safety of the new treatment with that of current treatments. Phase 3 trials include large numbers of people to make sure that the result is valid. There are also less common very early (phase 0) and later (phase 4) phases. Phase 0 trials are small trials that help researchers decide if a new agent should be tested in a phase 1 trial. Phase 4 trials look at long-term safety and effectiveness, after a new treatment has been approved and is on the market. ...

An endoscopy is a procedure where a gastroenterologist (a doctor who specialises in the digestive system and liver) uses a special camera to inspect the gastrointestinal tract. An endoscopy may be a gastroscopy (which looks inside the beginning of the gastrointestinal tract), a colonoscopy (which looks inside the large bowel), or both. See our fact sheet Endoscopy - colonoscopy.. A gastroscopy looks at the oesophagus, the stomach and first part of the small bowel, also known as the duodenum. This is done by using a long flexible tube that has a light and a camera on the end, known as a gastroscope.. A capsule endoscopy is another way of looking at the gastrointestinal tract, in particular the small bowel (small intestine). This involves swallowing a capsule, which is the size of a large jellybean. The capsule contains a camera, which takes photos of the inside of the gastrointestinal tract over a period of 8-12 hours.. ...

X-ray studies are sometimes used in people with bleeding because 20-25% of small bowel bleeding is caused by abnormalities in the intestinal wall that can be seen by standard or specialized x-ray studies, such as tumors. There are three x-ray tests commonly used in the evaluation of the small bowel - small bowel follow-through, enteroclysis, and CT enterography. The small bowel follow-through test is a series of abdominal x-rays that are taken at different times after a patient drinks a white, chalky fluid called barium that shows up on x-rays. The test allows the doctor to examine the lining of the intestine for any irregularities. The test is good for large abnormalities, but can miss many smaller ones. However, it is safe and easy to tolerate.. A second x-ray test, the enteroclysis study, is similar to the small bowel follow-through in that it uses barium to visualize the inner wall of the small bowel. It is more invasive because it requires a small tube called a catheter to be slowly ...

If there are narrow areas due to scarring (strictures) or tumors in the small intestine, the capsule can get stuck in the narrow area and cause an obstruction of the intestine that requires surgical removal of the capsule.

If the dummy capsule sticks, it can be seen on an x-ray of the abdomen and the location of the stricture determined. Because it dissolves with time, however, the obstruction will resolve without surgery, and the real capsule will not be swallowed ...
Hi! I think your GI should be able to tell whether the stricture is scar tissue or inflammation. I say that because I have a stricture in my mid ileum that was seen on capsule endoscopy and both the endoscopist who wrote the report and my GI said the stricture was fibrotic (scar tissue). What they told me is that when its caused by active inflammation you usually see irregular mucosa, ulcers or lesions on the site of the stricture. In that case, medication should be able to reverse the narrowing. If the mucosa looks reasonably healthy but there is narrowing, that would be fibrotic. In short, her doctors should be able to tell if its scar tissue or inflammation. If the stricture isn t causing too many problems, they usually just leave it. At least thats the plan with mine for now. But, in your case, if they can dilate the stricture and improve her nausea I think thats great news for her! It must be tough to be nauseated on a daily basis. I hope she feels better soon and that this is an isolated ...

This study showed that none of the 70 patients referred for a VCE, who had an undelivered initial PC, had gastrointestinal obstruction as proved by follow-up MRE or CTE examinations. Only 20 of the 70 went on to have a VCE.. During the three year study period a total of 714 VCEs were performed. Whilst performing a quality audit we came across a number of patients who had not gone on to VCE because the preceeding PC did not present itself in time. As evident from our results, 60 of 70 consecutive patients with undelivered PC had normal enteroclysis studies. What happened to these patients next? What was the clinicians understanding of our cross-sectional imaging results, and what impact had these on patient management?

Imaging from capsule endoscopy reveals acute bleeding from an ulcer.. "Probably the best way to utilize it is in addition to regular endoscopy, which offers a major benefit because you cant biopsy with the capsule alone," he added.. Of primary significance is the devices capability to identify lesions in their exact locations, which can be specified down to the inch. This is possible due to a three-dimensional tracking system that produces a graph of the capsules journey upon its completion. The graph can then be studied to pinpoint the site of any lesions or abnormalities.. "If a dog is going for surgery, for example, and it has metastatic neoplasia or some other kind of cancer issue, we can say to the surgeon you need to be concerned about a lesion 14 inches from the gastroduodenal junction; you need to be concerned about a lesion at this location, etc.," Rudinsky said. "So one of the areas wed like to see this branch into is surgical planning, so that before we send an animal to surgery ...
The PillCam SB is about the size of a standard vitamin (11 mm x 26 mm) and weighs less than four grams. The capsule contains a miniature video camera and is equipped with a light source on one end, batteries, a radio transmitter and antenna. After it is swallowed, the PillCam SB capsule transmits approximately 50,000 to 80,000 images over the course of an eight to twelve-hour period (about two images per second) to a data recording device attached to a belt worn around the patients waist or to sensor arrays on the patients chest. The small bowel images are then downloaded to a computer where a physician can review the images ...

Treatment of low-dose aspirin (LDA)-induced small-bowel injury has not been established. Polaprezinc, a chelate of zinc and L-carnosine, may be efficacious for such injury. We conducted a pilot randomized controlled study to investigate whether polaprezinc is effective against LDA-induced small-bowel injuries. Consecutive patients under long-term (|3 months) LDA treatment and who agreed to participate in our study underwent initial capsule endoscopy (CE). Patients with LDA-induced small-bowel injury apparent upon initial CE (n = 20) were randomized into a polaprezinc (150 mg/day for 4 weeks) group and a control (no polaprezinc treatment) group. All underwent follow-up CE after 4 weeks. Changes in the number and characteristics of small-bowel mucosal injuries were compared within and between the two groups. The median number of reddened lesions and erosions/ulcers upon follow-up CE in the polaprezinc group significantly decreased (P | 0.05). However, there was no significant difference in the median

Small bowel tumours occurred rarely, with an average annual incidence rate of 9.9 per million people. Carcinoid tumours and adenocarcinomas were the most common histological subtypes, with average annual incidence rates of 3.8 and 3.7 per million people respectively, followed by lymphomas (1.1 per million people) and sarcomas (1.3 per million people). For all histological subtypes, men had higher rates than women. Most tumours occurred in older adults; over 90% of cases occurred in people over the age of 40. During the 18-year study period, the incidence of small bowel tumours has risen slowly. In white men, black men and black women, rises in the incidence of adenocarcinomas, malignant carcinoids and lymphomas contributed to this trend. In white women, the incidence of adenocarcinomas, was stable while malignant carcinoids and lymphomas rose. The incidence of sarcomas was steady for all groups except black women, for which it fell. The histological types were distributed by anatomical subsite: ...
A 64-year-old woman had a history of cancer of alveolus that was in remission. She was considered at increased risk of developing squamous cell carcinoma of the upper aero-digestive tract; therefore, she was referred to us for endoscopic screening in May 2012. On white light endoscopy, a well-demarcated erythematous zone measuring 3 cm in size was identified at the distal greater curvature of the stomach (Fig 1a). To further delineate this suspicious lesion, ME combined with narrow-band imaging (NBI) was used. Magnifying endoscopy was performed with a zoom endoscope (GIF-Q260Z; Olympus Hong Kong and China Ltd, China) which has a magnifying power of 80 times. The tip of the endoscope was mounted with a transparent cap for the purpose of focusing. Under ME in combination with NBI, a non-structural area, ie, complete or almost-complete disappearance of gastric crypt epithelium and abnormal mucosal capillary pattern was identified (Fig 1a). Biopsy of the suspicious zone revealed atypical lymphoid ...
Background: Leukocyte scintigraphy is a noninvasive investigation to assess inflammation. We evaluated the utility of labeled leukocytes to detect small bowel inflammation and disease complications in Crohns disease and compared it to whole small bowel enteroscopy and laparotomy findings. Methods: Scintigraphy with technetium-99m exametazime-labeled leukocytes was prospectively performed in 48 patients with Crohns disease a few days before laparotomy, 41 also had an intraoperative small bowel enteroscopy. The same procedures were performed in 8 control patients. Independent grading of scans was compared with the results of enteroscopy and with surgical, histopathologic, and clinical data. Results: In the 8 control patients leukocyte scan, endoscopy, and histopathology were all negative for the small bowel. In patients with Crohns disease and small bowel inflammation seen at enteroscopy and/or laparotomy (n = 39) the scan was positive in 33. In 8 patients without macroscopic small bowel ...
The term Endoscopy is used to describe the direct visual examination of any part of the interior of the body through an optical viewing instrument.. This can be through the mouth into the stomach (gastroscopy), through the anus into the large bowel (colonoscopy), through the nose into the lungs (bronchoscopy), or through the urethra to the bladder (cystoscopy).. Another examination that is performed by the endoscopy staff is ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography). A dye is injected into the bile and pancreatic ducts using a flexible, video endoscope. Then x-rays are taken to outline the bile ducts and pancreas.. The Endoscopy Unit at UCLH is one of the largest units in the UK performing over 14,000 procedures per year. There are 7 state of the art endoscopy rooms and a 16 bay recovery area. We pride ourselves on delivering high quality diagnostic, screening and surveillance endoscopy as well as innovative therapeutic endoscopy. We have one of the largest hepatobiliary and upper GI ...
