Clinical Efficacy of Single-Channel Gastroscopy, Double-Channel Gastroscopy, and Double Gastroscopy for Submucosal Tumors in the Cardia and Gastric Fundus

ConclusionSingle-channel gastroscopy, double-channel gastroscopy, and double gastroscopy present potential capability with distinctive advantages in the endoscopic treatment of submucosal tumors of the cardia and gastric fundus, and it also shows that appropriate operation methods should be selected based on the situation of an individual patient.

Authors: Kato M Abstract Diverticular bleeding accounts for approximately 26%-40% of the cases of lower gastrointestinal bleeding. Rupture of the vasa recta at the neck or dome of the diverticula can be the cause of this bleeding. Colonoscopy aids in not only the diagnosis but also the treatment of diverticular bleeding after a steady bowel preparation. Endoscopic hemostasis involves several methods, such as injection/thermal contact therapy, clipping, endoscopic band ligation (EBL), hemostatic powder, and over-the-scope clips. Each endoscopic method can provide a secure initial hemostasis. With regard to the clini...

AbstractBackgroundAlthough endoscopy is the standard diagnostic screening test to identify esophageal varices in patients with chronic liver disease (CLD), selective endoscopy in patients who are at higher risk of having varices may be cost-effective in a resource-constrained country. The aim of this prospective study was to identify non-endoscopic parameters that may predict the presence of varices, especially high-risk esophageal varices in children with CLD.MethodsFrom January 2016 through March 2018, consecutive children with CLD without a history of variceal bleeding were prospectively included. Esophagogastroduodenos...

TC-325, an endoscopic hemostatic powder, exhibits possible benefits in patients with malignant gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding. The aim is to assess feasibility and determine estimates of efficacy of TC-325 compared with standard of care (SOC) in terms of initial hemostasis and recurrent bleeding rates in comparable groups of patients with malignant GI bleeding.

Authors: Chiu PW Abstract Bleeding peptic ulcers remained as one of the commonest causes of hospitalization worldwide. While endoscopic hemostasis serves as primary treatment for bleeding ulcers, rebleeding after endoscopic hemostasis becomes more and more difficult to manage as patients are usually poor surgical candidates with multiple comorbidities. Recent advances in management of bleeding peptic ulcers aimed to further reduce the rate of rebleeding through-(1) identification of high risk patients for rebleeding and mortality; (2) improvement in primary endoscopic hemostasis and; (3) prophylactic angiographic e...

Authors: Zhang HC, Tamil M, Kukreja K, Singhal S Abstract Concomitant malignant gastric outlet obstruction and biliary obstruction may occur in patients with advanced cancers affecting these anatomical regions. This scenario presents a unique challenge to the endoscopist in selecting an optimal management approach. We sought to determine the efficacy and safety of endoscopic techniques for treating simultaneous gastric outlet and biliary obstruction (GOBO) with endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) guidance for biliary drainage. An extensive literature search for peer-reviewed published cases yielded 6 unique case series tha...

Authors: Xu ZG, Zhao YB, Yu J, Bai JY, Liu E, Tang B, Yang SM Abstract The safety and efficacy of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) and radiofrequency ablation for early esophageal cancer (EEC) in cirrhotic patients has not been thoroughly investigated to date. The present study aimed to establish a standard treatment strategy for EEC in cirrhotic patients with esophageal varices. Six cirrhotic patients with early flat-type EECs (high-grade intraepithelial neoplasia) on or adjacent to esophageal varices were enrolled. Esophageal varix ligation (EVL) or transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) were ...

This study audits the UGE done at a single institution. It was motivated by the observation that public hospitals often experience an acute shortage of endoscopes, which are prone to frequent breaks and service delivery is further compromised by an increased workload. METHOD: This was a retrospective observational descriptive study of patients aged 20 to 45 years who had undergone gastrointestinal endoscopy (UGE) at Prince Mshiyeni Memorial Hospital (PMMH) in KwaZulu-Natal, during the period January 2015 to December 2015. One hundred and ninety-four patients' charts and UGE reports were reviewed. Data were analysed usi...

Small bowel capsule endoscopy revealed a submucosal tumor (SMT)-like lesion, with erosion of the surface, in the first third of the small bowel. Balloon-assisted small intestinal endoscopy also revealed a pulsatile SMT-like lesion with an exposed vessel on the surface. This unknown lesion was surgically resected. The histopathological findings of the resected SMT-like lesion showed a dilated ...
