Rational sequence of tests for pancreatic function. (1/2174)Of 144 patients with suspected pancreatic disease in whom a 75Se-selenomethionine scan was performed, endoscopic retrograde pancreatography (ERP) was successful in 108 (75%). The final diagnosis is known in 100 patients and has been compared with scan and ERP findings. A normal scan reliably indicated a normal pancreas, but the scan was falsely abnormal in 30%. ERP distinguished between carcinoma and chronic pancreatitis in 84% of cases but was falsely normal in five patients with pancreatic disease. In extrahepatic biliary disease both tests tended to give falsely abnormal results. A sequence of tests to provide a rapid and reliable assessment of pancreatic function should be a radio-isotope scan, followed by ERP if the results of the scan are abnormal, and a Lundh test if the scan is abnormal but the findings on ERP are normal.

Reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament: comparison of outside-in and all-inside techniques. (2/2174)The aim of this prospective study was to compare two arthroscopic techniques for reconstructing the anterior cruciate ligament, the "outside-in" (two incisions) and the "all-inside" (one incision) techniques. The results obtained for 30 patients operated on using the "outside-in" technique (group I) were compared with those for 29 patients operated on using the "all-inside" technique (group II). Before surgery, there were no significant differences between the groups in terms of Lysholm score, Tegner activity level, patellofemoral pain score, or knee laxity. Both groups displayed significant improvements in Lysholm score after 24 months, from 69 (16) to 91 (9) in group I and from 70 (17) to 90 (15) in group II (means (SD)). There were also significant improvements in patellofemoral pain scores in both groups, from 13 (6) to 18 (5) in group I and from 14 (6) to 18 (4) in group II after 24 months. No difference was found between the groups in knee stability at the 24 month follow up. The IKDC score was identical in both groups at follow up. The operation took significantly longer for patients in group I (mean 94 (15)) than for those in group II (mean 86 (20)) (p = 0.03). The mean sick leave was 7.7 (6.2) weeks in group I and 12.3 (9.7) weeks in group II (p = 0.026), indicating that there may be a higher morbidity associated with the "all-inside" technique. It can be concluded that there were no significant differences between the two different techniques in terms of functional results, knee laxity, or postoperative complications. The results were satisfactory and the outcome was similar in both treatment groups. (+info)
A new filtering algorithm for medical magnetic resonance and computer tomography images. (3/2174)Inner views of tubular structures based on computer tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) data sets may be created by virtual endoscopy. After a preliminary segmentation procedure for selecting the organ to be represented, the virtual endoscopy is a new postprocessing technique using surface or volume rendering of the data sets. In the case of surface rendering, the segmentation is based on a grey level thresholding technique. To avoid artifacts owing to the noise created in the imaging process, and to restore spurious resolution degradations, a robust Wiener filter was applied. This filter working in Fourier space approximates the noise spectrum by a simple function that is proportional to the square root of the signal amplitude. Thus, only points with tiny amplitudes consisting mostly of noise are suppressed. Further artifacts are avoided by the correct selection of the threshold range. Afterwards, the lumen and the inner walls of the tubular structures are well represented and allow one to distinguish between harmless fluctuations and medically significant structures. (+info)
Mid-term results of endoscopic perforator vein interruption for chronic venous insufficiency: lessons learned from the North American subfascial endoscopic perforator surgery registry. The North American Study Group. (4/2174)PURPOSE: The safety, feasibility, and early efficacy of subfascial endoscopic perforator surgery (SEPS) for the treatment of chronic venous insufficiency were established in a preliminary report. The long-term clinical outcome and the late complications after SEPS are as yet undetermined. METHODS: The North American Subfascial Endoscopic Perforator Surgery registry collected information on 148 SEPS procedures that were performed in 17 centers in the United States and Canada between August 1, 1993, and February 15, 1996. The data analysis in this study focused on mid-term outcome in 146 patients. RESULTS: One hundred forty-six patients (79 men and 67 women; mean age, 56 years; range, 27 to 87 years) underwent SEPS. One hundred and one patients (69%) had active ulcers (class 6), and 21 (14%) had healed ulcers (class 5). One hundred and three patients (71%) underwent concomitant venous procedures (stripping, 70; high ligation, 17; varicosity avulsion alone, 16). There were no deaths or pulmonary embolisms. One deep venous thrombosis occurred at 2 months. The follow-up periods averaged 24 months (range, 1 to 53 months). Cumulative ulcer healing at 1 year was 88% (median time to healing, 54 days). Concomitant ablation of superficial reflux and lack of deep venous obstruction predicted ulcer healing (P <.05). Clinical score improved from 8.93 to 3.98 at the last follow-up (P <. 0001). Cumulative ulcer recurrence at 1 year was 16% and at 2 years was 28% (standard error, < 10%). Post-thrombotic limbs had a higher 2-year cumulative recurrence rate (46%) than did those limbs with primary valvular incompetence (20%; P <.05). Twenty-eight of the 122 patients (23%) who had class 5 or class 6 ulcers before surgery had an active ulcer at the last follow-up examination. CONCLUSIONS: The interruption of perforators with ablation of superficial reflux is effective in decreasing the symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency and rapidly healing ulcers. Recurrence or new ulcer development, however, is still significant, particularly in post-thrombotic limbs. The reevaluation of the indications for SEPS is warranted because operations in patients without previous deep vein thrombosis are successful but operations in those patients with deep vein thrombosis are less successful. Operations on patients with deep vein occlusion have poor outcomes. (+info)
Comparison of endoscopic ligation and propranolol for the primary prevention of variceal bleeding. (5/2174)BACKGROUND AND METHODS: We compared propranolol therapy and endoscopic ligation for the primary prevention of bleeding from esophageal varices. This prospective, controlled trial included consecutive eligible patients who had large varices (>5 mm in diameter) that were at high risk for bleeding. The patients were assigned to either propranolol therapy, at a dose sufficient to decrease the base-line heart rate by 25 percent, or variceal ligation, to be performed weekly until the varices were obliterated or so reduced in size that it was not possible to continue treatment. RESULTS: Of the 89 patients, 82 of whom had cirrhosis of the liver, 44 received propranolol and 45 underwent variceal ligation. The mean (+/-SD) duration of follow-up in each group was 14+/-9 and 13+/-10 months, respectively. The mean time required to achieve an adequate reduction in the heart rate was 2.5+/-1.7 days; the mean number of sessions needed to complete variceal ligation was 3.2+/-1.1. After 18 months, the actuarial probability of bleeding was 43 percent in the propranolol group and 15 percent in the ligation group (P=0.04). Twelve patients in the propranolol group and four in the ligation group had bleeding. Three of the four in the ligation group had bleeding before their varices had been obliterated. Nine patients in the ligation group had recurrent varices, a mean of 3.7 months after the initial treatment. Five patients in each group died; bleeding from the varices was the cause of death of four patients in the propranolol group and of three in the ligation group. There were no serious complications of variceal ligation; in the propranolol group, treatment was stopped in two patients because of side effects. CONCLUSIONS: In patients with high-risk esophageal varices, endoscopic ligation of the varices is safe and more effective than propranolol for the primary prevention of variceal bleeding. (+info)
Improving information given to patients before endoscopy: a regional audit. (6/2174)To improve the information given to patients before endoscopy an audit was performed in 16 of 18 endoscopy units in Northern region. Details of current endoscopy information leaflets provided by the 16 respondents were discussed by nurses and consultants from the participating units, and a standard, including 12 separate items, was agreed. Each unit was provided with a comparison of its current leaflet with the standard, which highlighted areas for potential improvement. Six months later the participating units were again asked to provide details of the information; 13 replied, 11 of which had produced new leaflets and two which were in the process of doing so. In the initial survey only 35% (range 8-67%) of the items in the standard were included in the leaflets. Particular omissions were an indication of risks of procedures (three units), notification of follow up procedures (two), details for obtaining the results of the endoscopy (five), advice for people with diabetes (two) and providing a contact number for the endoscopy unit (four). In the repeat audit all 11 units had made changes to their leaflets and, overall, 80% of the items were included. Through this simple audit the range of information given to patients attending for endoscopy in the region has improved. (+info)
Management of coeliac disease: a changing diagnostic approach but what value in follow up? (7/2174)OBJECTIVE: To assess the management of patients with coeliac disease in relation to a change in diagnostic method from jejunal suction biopsy to endoscopic biopsy. DESIGN: 16 item questionnaire survey of consultant members of the British Society of Gastroenterology. SUBJECTS: 359 consultant physician and gastroenterologist members of the society. MAIN MEASURES: Type of routine biopsy; repeat biopsy after gluten withdrawal; gluten rechallenge; follow up measurements; screening for malignancy; and methods of follow up, including special clinics. RESULTS: 270(70%) members replied; 216(80%) diagnosed coeliac disease routinely by endoscopic duodenal biopsy, 30(11%) by jejunal capsule biopsy, and the remainder by either method. Only 156(58%) repeated the biopsy after gluten withdrawal, though more did so for duodenal than jejunal biopsies (134/216, 62% v 13/30, 43%; p < 0.02). Follow up biopsies featured more duodenal than jejunal biopsies (133/156, 82% v 23/156, 15%; p < 0.02). Regular follow up included assessments of weight (259, 96%) and full blood count (238, 88%) but limited assessment of serum B-12 and folate (120, 44%) and calcium (105, 39%) concentrations. Routine screening for malignancy is not performed, and there are few specialist clinics. 171(63%) respondents thought that patients should be followed up by a hospital specialist and 58(21%) by family doctors. CONCLUSIONS: The practice of diagnosing coeliac disease varies appreciably from that in many standard texts. Many patients could be effectively cared for by their family doctor. IMPLICATIONS: The British Society of Gastroenterology should support such management by family doctors by providing clear guidelines for them. (+info)
Impact of endoscopic biopsy surveillance of Barrett's oesophagus on pathological stage and clinical outcome of Barrett's carcinoma. (8/2174)BACKGROUND: The efficacy of endoscopic biopsy surveillance of Barrett's oesophagus in reducing mortality from oesophageal cancer has not been confirmed. AIMS: To investigate the impact of endoscopic biopsy surveillance on pathological stage and clinical outcome of Barrett's carcinoma. METHODS: A clinicopathological comparison was made between patients who initially presented with oesophageal adenocarcinoma (n = 54), and those in whom the cancer had been detected during surveillance of Barrett's oesophagus (n = 16). RESULTS: The surveyed patients were known to have Barrett's oesophagus for a median period of 42 months (range 6-144 months). Prior to the detection of adenocarcinoma or high grade dysplasia, 13 to 16 patients (81%) were previously found to have low grade dysplasia. Surgical pathology showed that surveyed patients had significantly earlier stages than non-surveyed patients (p = 0.0001). Only one surveyed patient (6%) versus 34 non-surveyed patients (63%) had nodal involvement (p = 0.0001). Two year survival was 85.9% for surveyed patients and 43.3% for non-surveyed patients (p = 0.0029). CONCLUSIONS: The temporal course of histological progression in our surveyed patients supports the theory that adenocarcinoma in Barrett's oesophagus develops through stages of increasing severity of dysplasia. Endoscopic biopsy surveillance of Barrett's oesophagus permits detection of malignancy at an early and curable stage, thereby potentially reducing mortality from oesophageal adenocarcinoma. (+info)
Evaluation of drug-induced sleep endoscopy as a patient selection tool for implanted upper airway stimulation for obstructive...
Study Objectives: To study the possible predictive value of drug-induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) in assessing therapeutic response to implanted upper airway stimulation (UAS) for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Methods: During DISE, artificial sleep is induced by midazolam and/or propofol, and the pharyngeal collapse patterns are visualized using a flexible fiberoptic nasopharyngoscope. The level (palate, oropharynx, tongue base, hypopharynx/epiglottis), the direction (anteroposterior, concentric, lateral), and the degree of collapse (none, partial, or complete) were scored in a standard fashion. Results: We report on the correlation between DISE results and therapy response in 21 OSA patients (apnea-hypopnea index [AHI] 38.5 +/- 11.8/h; body mass index [BMI] 28 +/- 2 kg/m(2), age 55 +/- 11 y, 20 male/1 female) who underwent DISE before implantation of a UAS system. Statistical analysis revealed a significantly better outcome with UAS in patients (n = 16) without palatal complete concentric ...

Sleep Endoscopy Info Guide: 15 Things You Need to Know
Drug induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) is usually performed in the operating room to help diagnose areas of blockage. Endoscopy evaluates obstruction at the level of the nose, the adenoids, the palate, the tonsils, the base of tongue (back part of the tongue), the epiglottis and the supraglottis. Areas of obstruction are then noted and the patient is either awakened and the findings are discussed at a clinic visit, or the patient may undergo surgery based on the counseling and surgical plan.
What Is a Nasal Endoscopy and Why I May Need It?
ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) Consultants use a nasal endoscope to examine sinuses and organs in the nose. The nasal endoscope is a narrow tube, equipped with a video camera and a light source, providing images which are magnified for the consultant to view.. During the Nasal endoscopy procedure, the Consultant will insert the instrument into the nose and guide it through the sinuses and nasal passages while examining the images on the screen.. It is commonly done in a clinic room at the same time as the initial consultation. In fact, it is often a crucial part of the assessment. You may experience mild discomfort through the procedure (people often describe this is a tingling sensation in the nose). Anaesthetic spray is sometimes used, but most people are happy to tolerate the procedure without this. The investigation often only lasts a few minutes. General anaesthesia is rarely required..

Nasal Endoscopy - Dallas Sinus Center
An endoscope is a small and thin (less than the size of a pencil) viewing tube with a light on one end and an eyepiece on the other end. It is used to look through small holes into larger spaces. Endoscopes are used by many types of doctors to evaluate not only the sinuses but also the lungs, stomach, and other areas.. Nasal endoscopy allows a detailed examination of the nasal and sinus cavities. During the endoscopy, we will look for areas of swelling in the mucosal membranes, for the presence of pus draining from the sinus openings, for enlargement of the turbinates, and for the presence of polyps. If pus is seen, it may be sampled to determine what organism is causing the infection. Nasal endoscopy is the most important diagnostic exam that the doctor will need to determine what may be causing sinus problems.. The procedure is performed in the office and is extremely well tolerated and is performed on adults and children who are able to cooperate with the exam. Prior to passing the scope, the ...

After the procedure, the endoscopy tube is removed from the gastrointestinal tract. The patient is watched for a short time until fully awake and ready to leave; however, he or she must be driven home by a companion. In most cases, the patient is allowed to eat as soon as the sedation has worn off. The doctor typically informs the patient of the results of the endoscopy at that time, and if tissue samples are taken, these results are usually available in a few days. The doctor may prescribe medication to heal any irritation or ulcerations or to prevent future damage.. The most common side effects after endoscopy are a mild bloating sensation and a sore throat. A small amount of bleeding can occur if a tissue sample was taken or a polyp removed. Endoscopy is a very safe procedure. Rarely, a complication can occur, such as perforation or a tear in the gastrointestinal tract lining. Problems after endoscopy such as fever, difficulty swallowing, or pain in the throat, stomach, or upper abdomen ...
A classification of the verbal methods currently used to teach endoscopy | BMC Medical Education | Full Text
In order to optimize the teaching of endoscopy, we first have to understand how endoscopy is currently taught. Because of the nature of the endoscopic procedure, we recognize that most of the teaching is done verbally. In this study, through the use of the grounded theory method, we arrived at a classification of the various verbal methods that are used to teach endoscopy, that has excellent interobserver agreement that may form a baseline for future work directed at optimizing how endoscopy is taught verbally.. Our classification has discriminant ability in that differences were noted in the distribution of the various teaching types depending on whether it was gastroscopy or colonoscopy that was being taught. Also, our system was sensitive to the fact that teachers seem to adapt their verbal teaching styles based on whether the learner is in the early stages of the rotation or the later stages. In the early stages of learning, as expected, the teacher was more likely to teach by demonstration ...

As a puppy, Champ snuck into Marys knitting bag and swallowed a small ball of yarn. When he became unwell, Mary called our practice right away. The yarn didnt show up on the x-ray so we used endoscopy to look inside Champs digestive tract and remove the yarn. Endoscopy is a procedure that uses a tiny video camera at the end of a very narrow scope in order to see inside of the body. Sometimes our practice uses endoscopy for surgical procedures but most often we use it for diagnostic purposes. Minimally invasive, the procedure requires relatively little recovery.

HKU Scholars Hub: Management of peritoneal tear during endoscopic extraperitoneal inguinal hernioplasty
Background: Peritoneal tear during endoscopic extraperitoneal inguinal hernioplasty (TEP) results in pneumoperitoneum and loss of extraperitoneal space. To avoid bowel adhesions, internal herniation, and mesh migration, closure of the peritoneal opening is preferred. The present study was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of various operative techniques for the closure of peritoneal laceration. Methods: Between April 2000 and May 2001, 100 consecutive patients undergoing 123 TEPs were recruited for the present study. The incidence of peritoneal tear and techniques for the closure of peritoneal opening were documented.

Pneumothorax during Endoscopic Extraperitoneal Herniorrhaphy | Anesthesiology | ASA Publications
A 38-yr-old man was admitted for elective, left inguinal hernia repair by endoscopic extraperitoneal technique. Midazolam and atropine were injected intramuscularly for premedication. In the operating room, an epidural catheter was inserted uneventfully through the T1112intervertebral space, and the patient was injected with lidocaine, 1.5%, in divided doses. General anesthesia was induced and maintained with thiamylal and nitrous oxide and sevoflurane. The patient was intubated after administration of vecuronium. Anesthesia was maintained with nitrous oxide and sevoflurane and epidural anesthesia. Additional vecuronium was administered intermittently. At the beginning of surgery, blood pressure was 92/50 mmHg, heart rate was 60 beats/min, oxygen saturation (SpO2) was 99%, and end-tidal carbon dioxide (ETCO2) was 32 mmHg. The preperitoneal working space was maintained at a pressure of 12 mmHg. As the procedure progressed, ETCO2rose gradually, with little change in SpO2. Thirty minutes after the ...
Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release - Torrance Surgery Center
What to expect With the patient under local anesthesia, the surgeon will make one or two small incisions over the palm of the hand. Using an endoscope, or small camera, for guidance, the surgeon will cut the carpal ligament to release pressure on the nerve passing through. Some surgeons will remove tissue surrounding the nerve, especially if the tissue is swollen or irritated. Upon dividing the carpal ligament, the surgeon stitches just the skin together and leaves the loose ends of the carpal ligament separated. The loose ends are left apart to keep pressure off the median nerve. Eventually, the gap between the two ends of the ligament fills in with scar tissue. Some surgeons will reattach the carpal ligament after lengthening it. After the 30 to 40 minute surgery, the patients wrist may be in a splint or heavy bandage for about a week. How to prepare Patients will be expected to not eat and limit drink to clear liquids for at least six hours before the procedure. Pre-procedure use of ...

Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
Sinus surgeries are performed by an ENT surgeon under general anaesthesia. Endoscopic technique is mostly followed. Image guided endoscopy is also used. The endoscope is inserted through the nose without any need for external incisions. The diseased tissue is removed and the sinus pathways are rerouted. Pieces of bone may have to be removed to create wider space for sinuses to drain. In some cases maxillary sinus may be approached through the upper jaw and is connected with the nose to improve drainage. This is called as caladwell luc approach ...
Thread carpal tunnel release - Wikipedia
Thread carpal tunnel release (TCTR) is a minimally-invasive procedure of performing carpal tunnel release using a piece of surgical dissecting thread as a dividing element. This is instead of using a scalpel as in the situation of open carpal tunnel release (OCTR) or endoscopic carpal tunnel release (ECTR). Play media Under the real-time guidance of ultrasound, a spinal needle is inserted at the palm of the hand and advanced underneath the transverse carpal ligament (TCL) and exiting at the wrist. Through this needle, a fine smooth thread (0.2 mm in diameter) is fed. The needle is inserted again in the same fashion over the TCL and the thread is again looped through back out of the original needle entry. The thread surrounds the TCL and is manipulated in a back and forth motion to divide the TCL. Once complete, the thread is removed and two small bandages are placed on the needle puncture sites. The procedure takes 10 minutes in a clinic based office. The frictional effect of a sliding thread ...

Endoscopic vein harvesting: importance of patient selection | Heart
To the Editor We congratulate Grant et al1 on their multi-centre study on the impact of endoscopic vein harvesting (EVH) on clinical outcomes. Their results echoed nicely with the studies by Dacey et al2 and Ouzounian et al3 who showed EVH is not an independent predictor of inhospital or mid-term adverse outcomes. However, it is interesting to note that only 12.4% of their studied population received EVH. The study also highlighted the … ...
Quantitative analysis of high-resolution microendoscopic images for diagnosis of neoplasia in patients with Barrett's esophagus
Background and Aims: Previous studies show that microendoscopic images can be interpreted visually to identify the presence of neoplasia in patients with Barretts esophagus (BE), but this approach is subjective and requires clinical expertise. This study describes an approach for quantitative image analysis of microendoscopic images to identify neoplastic lesions in patients with BE. Methods: Images were acquired from 230 sites from 58 patients by using a fiberoptic high-resolution microendoscope during standard endoscopic procedures. Images were analyzed by a fully automated image processing algorithm, which automatically selected a region of interest and calculated quantitative image features. Image features were used to develop an algorithm to identify the presence of neoplasia; results were compared with a histopathology diagnosis. Results: A sequential classification algorithm that used image features related to glandular and cellular morphology resulted in a sensitivity of 84% and a ...

Expanded Endoscopic Endonasal Approach to Anterior and Ventral Skull Base: An Evolving Paradigm
The transition from external approaches to an endonasal corridor has seen a significant decline in patient morbidity and inpatient care. Our Rhinology and Cranial Base Surgery Group has been able to focus on the management of certain pathologies, endoscopic access to various areas in the skull base, reconstruction of the defect, ensuring that clear anatomical landmarks can be identified during the surgery, and improving the quality of life/function after treatment. The focus on surgical treatment is always to control disease and cure patients by not only reducing recovery time and perioperative morbidity, but also decreasing the long-term impact of having a tumour removed. With a dedicated combined operating theater setting with updated instrumentation, the Neuro-ENT team is able to continue to expand and develop endoscopic care for a greater number of patients and wider range of pathologies.

Endoscopic Treatment of Intestinal Fistulas and Perforations - Full Text View - ClinicalTrials.gov
Background: T-shaped tissue anchors have promise to close incisions and perforations of the intestines securely. The closure of perforations, gastro-gastric, or intestinal fistulas usually requires invasive open or laparoscopic surgery under general anesthesia and can be complex surgeries due to their reoperative or inflammatory nature.. Objective: The proposed use of full thickness tissue anchors adds a new surgical aspect to the endoscopic treatment of fistulas and perforations by offering a robust suture like closure of defects. Instead of a 20 cm abdominal incision or 3 or 4 one centimeter incisions with the related postoperative morbidity an endoscopic technique is used which requires no postoperative limitation of activities.. Methods: In this study the investigators propose to use an endoscopic technique that eliminates the need for open or laparoscopic surgery and provides a more robust endoscopic repair than is possible with traditional endoscopic tools. Patients who are scheduled to ...

Upper Endoscopy - Thunderbird Endoscopy Center
Your doctor will give you specific instruction to follow to prepare for your upper endoscopy. Generally, because an empty stomach allows for the best and safest examination, you will be instructed to not eat or drink, with the exception of water, for approximately six hours before your procedure.. What Happens During an Upper Endoscopy?. You will lie on your left side, and an intravenous (IV) sedation is used during an upper endoscopy. Once the sedation takes effect your doctor will pass a lighted, flexible endoscope into your mouth. A plastic mouth guard is usually used to protect the endoscope from your teeth. A tiny camera at the tip of the endoscope will transmit images to a monitor for your physician to view. If your physician is using tools to obtain a biopsy, he/she will use the monitor to guide the tools used.. At the end of the exam, the endoscope is slowly withdrawn. The procedure takes about five to 20 minutes, depending on why the test is being performed and what your physician ...

Spine & Endoscopy
Operations carried out using full-endoscopic techniques represent a milestone in the development of percutaneous access ports to the spinal column, since full-endoscopic imaging (endoscope, endocamera, monitor) and special surgical techniques are able to significantly further reduce the access trauma experienced by patients compared with other procedures (microsurgery).. All instruments can be used under direct control through the endoscope with access ports ,1 cm. Continuous irrigation through the endoscope guarantees a high image quality by continuously flushing the lens to remove blood and tissue. This means that all manipulations with instruments can be directly controlled and guarantee a high level of safety and effectiveness.. The concept of "full-endoscopic" provides clear differentiation from other endoscopic procedures which do not meet these criteria.. Over recent years, the development of innovative instruments and techniques specially associated with them have enabled us to include ...
Stent-induced compression necrosis for the endoscopic removal of a partially eroded Lap-Band | BMJ Case Reports
Endoscopic removal of eroded Lap-Bands is a minimally invasive alternative to surgical removal that prerequires sufficient erosion through the gastric wall, that is, ≥180° of the gastro-oesophageal wall circumference. A 69-year-old woman presented with dysphagia due to a long-standing Lap-Band erosion, currently of a 60° circumference. Adhesions due to her extensive surgical history rendered surgical treatment undesirable, so a self-expanding stent was placed endoscopically to induce sufficient erosion for subsequent endoscopic removal. During therapy, the patient complained of ructus and dysphagia, probably related to an overly proximally (oesophageal) positioned stent. After a total of 12 weeks, far longer than the described stenting duration in the literature, the Lap-Band was found free in the gastric lumen and was successfully removed using an endoscopic loop. Stent-induced compression necrosis should be considered as a minimally invasive treatment option for Lap-Bands eroded for ...

Demand for Endoscopy Devices in Asia Driven by Aging Populations - Pacific Bridge Medical
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the over 60 global population will double from 11% to 22% between 2000 and 2050. One of the diseases that elderly populations are more prone to are gastrointestinal diseases. This problem is driving the need for endoscopic devices. Typically, doctors and elderly patients prefer minimally invasive surgeries. Other factors that are increasing the demand for endoscopy procedures include increasing prevalence of obesity and gastroesophageal reflux disorder (GERD).. The leading Asian countries to experience a rise in geriatric populations include Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and China. Thus there is an increased need for endoscopic devices such as flexible and rigid endoscopes, and endoscopy visualization systems.
