Pure-Vu GEN2 FDA Cleared to Clean Colons During Colonoscopy Exams

Motus GI, a company now headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has won FDA clearance for the latest version of its Pure-Vu colon cleansing system. Designed for use during colonoscopies, the system is designed to clear out debris left in the colon...

Once it became clear that most colorectal cancers developed from premalignant colon polyps, screening colonoscopy with removal of these polyps became the focus of colon cancer prevention with demonstrable effectiveness. The brilliant simplicity of the flexible cautery snare quickly became the standard method for polypectomy, and the use of partial colon resections to remove precancerous colon polyps plummeted. As colonoscopy evolved with an emphasis on higher detection of adenomas and identification of subtle flat colon lesions such as sessile serrated adenomas, the need for improved polypectomy techniques has become obvious.

We present the case of a 7-year-old male patients, diagnosed at the age of 3 years with PJS due to a surgical intervention for acute abdominal pain that revealed a rectal polyp associated with hyperpigmented maculae on the lips and oral mucosa. His family history revealed the same condition in his mother, who was diagnosed much later, at the age of 25 years. Diagnoses: The upper and lower digestive endoscopy revealed multiple polyps of different sizes within the stomach, and 2 polyps at 5 cm from the anal orifice. The barium enterography revealed 3 polyps within the ileum. Interventions: We administered blood trans...

A key to successful colorectal cancer (CRC) prevention is complete colon polyp removal. The quality of colonoscopy is currently defined by how well we identify neoplastic lesions, as measured by adenoma detection rates (ADRs). A higher ADR correlates with lower rates of interval colon cancers.1 However, the completeness and skills of resection are important factors as well, but they are not current quality metrics and would be an onerous task to measure in daily practice.

ConclusionsTraining the discriminator and generator of the model on real images, we show that our model performs implicit domain adaptation, which is a key step towards bridging the gap between synthetic and real data. Importantly, we demonstrate the feasibility of training a single model to predict depth from both synthetic and real images without the need for explicit, unsupervised transformer networks mapping between the domains of synthetic and real data.

The objective of this study was to evaluate the relationship between the polyp detection rate and its influence on post-colonoscopy colorectal cancer rate. PATIENTS AND METHODS: in this study, 12,482 colonoscopies conducted by 14 endoscopists were analyzed. The polyp detection rate was calculated for each endoscopist. Endoscopists were grouped into quartiles (Q1, Q2, Q3, and Q4), from lowest to highest polyp detection rate, in order to evaluate whether there were any differences in the development of post-colonoscopy colorectal cancer. RESULTS: the lowest polyp detection rate was 20.66% and the highest was 52.16%, ...

Conclusion Despite the different criteria used to determine surveillance after serrated polyp resection, most individuals are recommended identical colonoscopy surveillance intervals whether following the ESGE or US-MSTF guidelines. This suggests that surveillance recommendations do not need to consider the serrated polyp subtype.

ConclusionColon polyps are incompletely resected in a small but potentially significant percentage of cases. IRR are similar with the use of cold jumbo forceps and cold snare. Use of cold jumbo forceps may result in more successful tissue retrieval as compared to cold snare.
