Disinfection of upper gastrointestinal fibreoptic endoscopy equipment: an evaluation of a cetrimide chlorhexidine solution and glutaraldehyde. (1/196)

There is little information available on the bacteriological contamination of upper gastrointestinal fibreoptic endoscopes during routine use and the effects of 'disinfecting solutions'. A bacteriological evaluation was therefore made of cleaning an endoscope and its ancillary equipment with (1) water, (2) an aqueous solution of 1% cetrimide with 0.1% chlorhexidine, and (3) activated aqueous 2% glutaraldehyde. All equipment, but particularly the endoscope itself, was found to be heavily contaminated after use with a wide variety of organisms of which 53% were Gram positive. Cleaning the endoscope and ancillary equipment with water and the cetrimide/chlorhexidine solution alone or in combination was inadequate to produce disinfection but immersion in glutaraldehyde for two minutes consistently produced sterile cultures with our sampling technique. A rapid and simple method for disinfection of endoscopic equipment is therefore recommended and we think this is especially suitable for busy endoscopy units.  (+info)

An ambulant porcine model of acid reflux used to evaluate endoscopic gastroplasty. (2/196)

BACKGROUND: There is a lack of suitable models for testing of therapeutic procedures for gastro-oesophageal reflux disease. Endoscopic sewing methods might allow the development of a new less invasive surgical approach to treatment of gastrointestinal disorders. AIMS: To develop an animal model of gastro-oesophageal reflux for testing the efficacy of a new antireflux procedure, endoscopic gastroplasty, performed at flexible endoscopy without laparotomy or laparoscopy. METHODS: At endoscopy a pH sensitive radiotelemetry capsule was sewn to the oesophageal wall, 5 cm above the lower oesophageal sphincter, in six large white pigs. Ambulant pH recordings (48-96 hours; total 447 hours) were obtained. The median distal oesophageal pH was 6.8 (range 6.4-7.3); pH was less than 4 for 9.3% of the time. After one week, endoscopic gastroplasty was performed by placing sutures below the gastro-oesophageal junction, forming a neo-oesophagus of 1-2 cm in length. Postoperative manometry and pH recordings (24-96 hours; total 344 hours) were carried out. RESULTS: Following gastroplasty, the median sphincter pressure increased significantly from 3 to 6 mm Hg and in length from 3 to 3.75 cm. The median time pH was less than 4 decreased significantly from 9.3% to 0.2%. CONCLUSIONS: These are the first long term measurements of oesophageal pH in ambulant pigs. The finding of spontaneous reflux suggested a model for studying treatments of reflux. Endoscopic gastroplasty increased sphincter pressure and length and decreased acid reflux.  (+info)

Endoscopic laser recanalisation of presaccal canalicular obstruction. (3/196)

AIM: To document the results of erbium (Er)-YAG laser treatment in presaccal canalicular obstruction in combination with the use of a flexible endoscope. METHODS: For the first time an Er-YAG laser (Schwind, Sklerostom) was attached to a flexible endoscope (Schwind, Endognost) and used to recanalise a stenosis of the upper, lower, or common canaliculus. In 17 patients (mean age 41.5 (SD 11.9) years), 19 treatments (two bilateral) were performed. In all cases the scar was observed using the endoscope and was excised by laser ablation. A silicone intubation was performed in all cases. In addition to the endoscopy an irrigation was performed to prove the intactness of the lacrimal pathway system after laser treatment. RESULTS: Membranous obstructions with a maximum length of 2.0 mm (14 procedures) in the canaliculus were opened easily using the laser, and the silicone intubation was subsequently performed without difficulty. Scars thicker than 2.0 mm could not be opened safely without canaliculus penetration (five procedures). Irrigation was positive in all cases up to the end of a 6 month period, providing the tubes remained in place. The maximum follow up is now 17 months (minimum 8 months) and in 16 cases (84.2%) the canaliculi are still intact. CONCLUSION: Endoscopic laser treatment combined with silicone intubation enables us to recanalise presaccal stenoses of canaliculi under local anaesthesia up to a scar thickness of 2.0 mm. Best results can be achieved in cases where much tissue can be saved. Under such conditions this procedure can substitute for more invasive surgical techniques, especially a conjunctivo-dacryocystorhinostomy (CDCR).  (+info)

A decrease in circulating levels of immunoreactive insulin-like growth factor binding protein-1 (IGFBP-1) after endometrial ablation using a gynecologic resectoscope. (4/196)

To determine how endometrium alone would contribute to maintaining the circulating levels of Insulin-like growth factor binding protein-1 in vivo, serum immunoreactive IGFBP-1 levels were measured in 19 patients undergoing endometrial ablation using gynecologic resectoscopy. After endometrial ablation there was a significant decrease in the mean levels of circulating IGFBP-1, which was not correlated with the menstrual cycle. This result indicates that the endometrium is one of the sources of the circulating IGFBP-1.  (+info)

Newly developing endoscopic devices--shadow optics and micromachine. (5/196)

Based on the newly-developed engineering technologies, many kinds of useful equipment have been available for minimally invasive surgery. Recently the time to connect clinical needs and advanced technologies has become faster. In this article, we have summarized the recent technologies for endoscopic surgeries. Shadow optic technologies for better geometric perception using dual illumination in a conventional 2-D monitor and "Overview optics" for a panoramic view with an additional visual system are introduced. Micromachine technology is very close to practical implementation for minimally invasive surgeries. Virtual Biopsy is the one of the hottest topics for the next generation of endoscopy. Stereoscopic and volumetric vision systems are still on the way, which should overcome the irritating goggles and stereo display devices. As well as operational theater that integrates all the required equipment with a computer-based system, including voice recognition, still requires the standard protocols to connect many kinds of devices from different manufacturers.  (+info)

Laboratory evaluation of a microangioscope for potential percutaneous cerebrovascular applications. (6/196)

A laboratory-based study of the physical and performance characteristics of a new 0.25-mm-thin microangioscope was performed. The microangioscope tested was compatible with currently available microcatheters, but its tip was considerably stiff and of limited radiopacity. Poor image quality and difficult image interpretation were further drawbacks. Intensive efforts are directed at addressing current limitations and testing further innovations that could pave the way for future performance in neurovascular endoscopy.  (+info)

Evrim Bougie: a new instrument in the management of urethral strictures. (8/196)

BACKGROUND: In this study a new instrument and technique is described for the endoscopic treatment of complete posterior urethral strictures, which may result in serious complications and sometimes require troublesome treatments. METHODS: Three patients with complete posterior urethral obstruction were treated endoscopically with the guidance of a new instrument: Evrim Bougie. Evrim Bougie looks like a Guyon Bougie, has a curved end, which facilitates getting into the bladder through the cystostomy tract and with a built in channel of 1.5 mm in diameter for a sliding needle exiting at its tip. Having confirmed fluoroscopically and endoscopically that the sliding needle had passed across the strictured segment, the strictured segment was incised with internal urethrotomy, distal to the strictured segment, and urethral continuity was accomplished. At the end of the operation a Foley urethral catheter was easily placed into the bladder per urethra. Patients were instructed in self-catheterization after removal of the urethral catheter. All patients achieved normal voiding at postoperative 7th month follow-up evaluation. CONCLUSION: Internal urethrotomy could be performed under the guidance of the sliding needle of Evrim Bougie advanced from above the posterior urethral strictures, which to our knowledge was described for the first time in the English literature. We also believe that there may be other possible indications of Evrim Bougie for different procedures in urethral surgery.  (+info)

AERs subjected to HLD are widely used for the decontamination of endoscopes. The guidelines of the British Society of Gastroenterology emphasize the benefits of manual brushing of endoscope channels in addition to automated decontamination [1]. We aimed to determine whether adequate decontamination of AERs and GI endoscopes was achieved after complete reprocessing. This 5-year prospective study showed that the number of culture-positive samples obtained from the BCs (13.6% [57/420]) of GI endoscopes was significantly higher than those obtained from swab samples taken from the internal surfaces of AERs (1.7% [7/420]) after HLD (p , 0.0001). This finding may be due to the fact that the structure of an endoscope is more complicated than that of an AER. GI endoscopes are complex reusable instruments that require special care during decontamination. Contamination of the AER samples may have been underestimated because the structures of the GI endoscopes and that of the AERs differ. Endoscopes are ...

In 2012, gastric cancer was the fifth most common cancer [1] and the third leading cause of cancer mortality [2]. In the United States, the National Cancer Institute reported a 5-year survival rate of only 28.3% for people diagnosed with the cancer between the years 2004 and 2010 [3], mostly due to late detection. Gastric cancer is among the many stomach diseases that can be treated if diagnosed early. Therefore, early detection through effective screening protocols can be lifesaving. The traditional screening method of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract is flexible endoscopy.. Flexible endoscopy utilizes a maneuverable insertion tube that is attached at the end to a camera, which is wirelessly connected to an external monitor [4]. While flexible endoscopy is a generally accepted procedure and its diagnostic accuracy is high (82% of Invendoscope (Invendo Medical GmbH, Kissing, Germany) patients are comfortable without sedation [4]), the process is known to be uncomfortably invasive and not ...

Registration of pre-clinical images to physical space is indispensable for computer-assisted endoscopic interventions in operating rooms. Electromagnetically navigated endoscopic interventions are increasingly performed at current diagnoses and treatments. Such interventions use an electromagnetic tracker with a miniature sensor that is usually attached at an endoscope distal tip to real time track endoscope movements in a pre-clinical image space. Spatial alignment between the electromagnetic tracker (or sensor) and pre-clinical images must be performed to navigate the endoscope to target regions. This paper proposes an adaptive marker-free registration method that uses a multiple point selection strategy. This method seeks to address an assumption that the endoscope is operated along the centerline of an intraluminal organ which is easily violated during interventions. We introduce an adaptive strategy that generates multiple points in terms of sensor measurements and endoscope tip center ...

Masao Fujiwara, MDPhD, Hirohito Mori, MDPhD, Yuji Nishizawa, MDPhD, Akihiro Kondo, MD, Keiichi Okano, MDPhD, Tsutom Masaki, MDPhD, Yasuyuki Suzuki, MDPhD. Department of Gastroenterological Surgery and Department of Gastroenterology and Neurology, Faculty of Medicine, Kagawa University, Kagawa, Japan.. Natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) is a minimally invasive surgery, but the procedures using only a flexible endoscope are technically demanding. We have performed hybrid NOTES with laparoscope-assisted endoscopic full-thickness resection for 14 patients with a gastric gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST). Briefly, the tumor is resected with a full-thickness gastric wall endoscopically with the aid of a laparoscope. Then, suture closure of the stomach is completed laparoscopically. The specimen is usually removed through the mouth. All the tumors were resected en bloc with a negative surgical margin. Histologically, 3 cases were classified in the high-risk group, 2 in the ...

Bead-like schwannomas at the cauda equina are rare but benign intraspinal tumors. They can involve multiple nerve roots and spread within the spinal canal, and open resection would cause significant trauma. The authors have successfully applied a novel minimally invasive technique for the total removal of such schwannomas. A 68-year-old woman presented with a 1-month history of left waist and leg pain. MRI demonstrated multiple intraspinal lesions located from L1 to S1. The diagnosis was bead-like schwannomas at the cauda equina. Two incisions were made at the T12 and L5 levels. A flexible endoscope was introduced into the spinal canal following hemisemilaminectomy under a microscope to identify the relationship between the tumors and the carrying nerves. After dissecting both cranial and caudal ends of the carrying nerve, the string of bead-like tumors was gently pulled out from the caudal end as a whole. The endoscope was reintroduced into the spinal canal to ensure complete tumor removal. The ...

After the duodenoscope sterilization issues that plagued manufacturers and patients this year, the FDA is expanding its oversight on medical device disinfection. The regulatory body has ordered that the Pennsylvania-based device manufacturer, Custom Ultrasonics, issue a recall for all of the companys Automated Endoscope Reprocessors.. According to a report produced by the FDA, the endoscope washers have violated the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. A safety alert issued by the agency advised healthcare facilities to use alternative methods to reprocess flexible endoscopes as soon as possible.. Insiders are saying this latest recall is not a standard voluntary recall; Custom Ultrasonics were given seven days from the date of issue - November 13 - to draft and submit a written recall to the FDA. According to the notice issued by the FDA, the most recent FDA inspection of the Custom Ultrasonics facility earlier this year noted continued violations originally identified by the agency in ...
1. All patients undergoing gastrointestinal endoscopy must be considered at risk for HIV and appropriate cleaning/disinfection measures taken for endoscopes and accessories. 2. Thorough manual cleaning with detergent, of the instrument and its channels is the most important part of the cleaning/disinfection procedure. Without this, blood, mucus and organic material will prevent adequate penetration of disinfectant for inactivation of bacteria and viruses. 3. Aldehyde preparations (2% activated glutaraldehyde and related products) are the recommended first line antibacterial and antiviral disinfectant. A four minute soak is recommended as sufficient for inactivation of vegetative bacteria and viruses (including HIV and HBV). 4. Quaternary ammonium detergents (8% Dettox for two minutes for bacterial disinfection), followed by exposure of the endoscope shaft and channels to ethyl alcohol (70% for four minutes for viral inactivation), is an acceptable second-line disinfectant routine where staff ...

Biopsy forceps are those surgical instruments which are used when surgeons want to test whether a person has any disease or not. These instruments resemble a pair of scissors and are somewhat of a grasping instrument which is used by surgeons while conducting surgeries.. Biopsy forceps are used by doctors to test and examine a patients tissue, particularly for cancer. Once the tissue has been tested and the physician gets an idea as to what the disease is if there exists one, they can then determine what the course of treatment should be so that the illness can be eliminated. There are a variety of biopsy forceps available out of which the cervical biopsy forceps is a gynecological instrument which is used by gynecologists to test women for cervical cancer.. Biopsy forceps can be used by surgeons while they are performing surgery. If the surgeon believes that his fingers will damage the tissue and requires an instrument to work with, biopsy forceps are generally the instrument which the surgeon ...

Videostroboscopy fulfills several important requirements of a complete voice examination. It provides useful, real-time information concerning the nature of vibration, an image to detect vocal pathology, and a permanent video record of the examination. As important as any of these aspects, stroboscopy substantially improves the sensitivity of subtle laryngeal diagnoses over techniques, such as rigid or flexible transnasal laryngoscopy, with continuous light sources. A videostrobe unit consists of a stroboscopic unit (light source and microphone), a video camera, an endoscope, and a video recorder. Stroboscopy can be performed by using either rigid or flexible endoscopes; each has its own benefits and drawbacks. Although flexible endoscopy is ideal for observing unaltered laryngeal behavior from various angles and for viewing the glottis through a narrow supraglottic aperture, it suffers from the low intesity of light carried through the long fiberoptic bundle to the tip of the narrow endoscope. With
Single balloon assisted enteroscopy (SBE) is an examination of the lining of the esophagus, stomach, and deep small intestine (duodenum, jejunum and ileum) with a small camera (flexible endoscope) which is inserted down the throat with the assistance of an overtube/balloon system (see image). On the tip of the overtube is a balloon that can be blown up and deflated. The balloon when blown up is used to anchor the overtube within the intestine. While the overtube is anchored, the endoscope can be advance further into the small intestine. By withdrawing the overtube the small intestine can be shortened and straightened to make the passage of the inner endoscope easier. The balloon may then be deflated so that the overtube can be inserted further and the endoscope advanced again. The endoscope itself is a longer than the standard endoscope (200 cm or 8 feet) with working channels that allow the intestine to be inflated with air, rinsed with water, or to guide biopsy or electrocautery instruments to ...

Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) allows cholecystectomy to be performed by means of a flexible scope introduced through the stomach, rectus, bladder, or vagina. However, available endoscopes have several limitations if used in the peritoneal cavity. The hybrid technique reported overcomes these limitations by using conventional 5-mm laparoscopic instruments through the umbilical scar and transabdominal sutures for retraction. After creating the pneumoperitoneum with a Veress needle, a 5-mm port is introduced into the umbilicus followed by a 5-mm, 30 degrees scope. A culdotomy then is performed under direct and laparoscopic views. The flexible endoscope is inserted into the pelvis through the vagina and advanced to expose the gallbladder. Three or more transabdominal sutures are placed through the gallbladder wall for retraction. Cholecystectomy then is performed using conventional 5-mm laparoscopic instruments through the 5-mm umbilical port. Finally, stay sutures are removed and

An endoscopy is performed with either a flexible endoscope (bronchoscopy, colonoscopy, or endoscopy) or with a rigid endoscope (arthroscopy, cystoscopy, laparoscopy, proctoscopy, rhinoscopy, or thoracoscopy). The machine is made up of a tube that enters the body, an eyepiece, and a control section for the doctor to maneuver the equipment. Additionally, there are two channels within the endoscope. One channel can be used for various endoscopic tools to collect fluids or samples, and the other allows air or water to pass through. Special video cameras can also be attached that allow viewing of the procedure on a screen or recording a video of the procedure.. Endoscopies performed on humans only require light sedation, however, because animals dont understand that a veterinary team is trying to help them, they will need to be sedated under general anesthesia for the duration of the procedure. ...

In reply:. We appreciate the response to our manuscript Alternatives to Rapid Sequence Intubation: Contemporary Airway Management with Ketamine and value the authors perspectives, both competing and complementary.. We agree that flexible endoscopy is a powerful, safety-preserving airway management modality that should be a foundational component of the emergency physicians arsenal and that, ideally, all emergency physicians would be competent in this skill and use it regularly for fully awake intubation technique, facilitated by meticulous topical anesthesia, as well as dissociated ketamine-only breathing intubation (KOBI). At the moment, however, the majority of practicing emergency physicians are not able to efficiently apply topical anesthesia dense enough to facilitate a fully awake technique in most patients, and are not able to able to efficiently intubate using a flexible endoscope, either because they lack the equipment or the skill set, or both.. Furthermore, even providers ...

Vitrectomy is one of the most important ocular surgeries. It can be used for patients with diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment, ocular trauma, and endophthalmitis. Generally, vitrectomy is performed with microscopic assistance. However, in some situations such as corneal opacity and synechia of pupil, it cannot be done due to optic media opacity. Endoscope-assisted vitrectomy may be helpful for those patients who cannot be treated by traditional vitrectomy. It can also be used for patients with uncontrolled high intraocular pressure. It will improve life quality of those patients significantly. Endoscope-assisted vitrectomy is used in many countries including USA, Japan, Korea and some in the Europe. We pioneer in Taiwan in doing Endoscope-assisted vitrectomy ...
The term endoscopy refers to a special technique for looking inside a part of the body. Upper GI is the portion of the gastrointestinal tract, the digestive system, that includes the esophagus the stomach, and the duodenum, the beginning of the small intestine. The esophagus carries food from the mouth for digestion in the stomach and small intestine.. Upper GI endoscopy is a procedure performed by a gastroenterologist a well-trained specialist who uses the endoscope to diagnose and, in some cases treat problems of the upper digestive system.. The endoscope is a long, thin, flexible tube with a tiny video camera and light on the end. By adjusting the various controls on the endoscope, the gastroenterologist can safely guide the instrument to carefully examine the inside lining of the upper digestive system.. The high-quality picture from the endoscope is shown on a TV monitor; it gives a clear, detailed view. In many cases, upper GI endoscopy is a more precise examination than X-ray ...
