In conclusion, endoscopic MIT measurement can differentiate esophageal disorders instantly during endoscopy. It may not only serve as an important tool in diagnosing of GERD but also help guide therapy in clinically difficult situations as a surrogate to predict the treatment response.

Authors: Rerknimitr R Abstract Walled-off necrosis is considered one of the most severe complications after an episode of severe acute pancreatitis. Traditionally, percutaneous drainage is selected as the first treatment step, while open surgery can be planned as a secondary option if necrosectomy is required. In recent years, endoscopic necrosectomy has evolved as a more favorable approach. To date, a step-up treatment strategy is recommended, particularly when a plastic stent is selected as the drainage device. Multi-gateway endoscopic therapy may be used in a step-up fashion if only one stent fails to clear debr...

Authors: Gutta A, Gromski MA Abstract Post-polypectomy bleeding (PPB) is one of the most common complications of endoscopic polypectomy. There are multiple risk factors related to patient and polyp characteristics that should be considered. In most cases, immediate PPB can be effectively managed endoscopically when recognized and managed promptly. Delayed PPB can manifest in a myriad of ways. In severe delayed PPB, resuscitation for hemodynamic stabilization should be prioritized, followed by endoscopic evaluation and therapy once the patient is stabilized. Future areas of research in PPB include the risks of direc...

Chronic rhinosinusitis is a long-lasting medical condition, usually caused by infection or exposure to irritants, such as allergies, that affects one in seven American adults. Symptoms include nasal obstruction, nasal congestion, nasal drainage, loss of smell and taste, and facial pain and pressure. Some people with chronic rhinosinusitis also develop additional symptoms, such as asthma and nasal polyps, that are exacerbated by underlying allergies. A nasal polyp is a noncancerous tumor that grows from the lining of the nose or sinuses and affects the drainage system of the sinuses. While chronic rhinosinusitis is not a li...

Prior studies have validated EUS-guided needle-based confocal laser endomicroscopy (nCLE) diagnosis of IPMNs. We sought to derive EUS-nCLE criteria for differentiating IPMNs with high-grade dysplasia/adenocarcinoma (HGD-Ca) from those with low/intermediate-grade dysplasia (LGD).

Publication date: January 2020Source: Biomedical Signal Processing and Control, Volume 55Author(s): Farah Deeba, Francis M. Bui, Khan A. WahidAbstractThis paper presents a computer-aided polyp detection algorithm applicable to both colonoscopy and wireless capsule endoscopy (WCE). The proposed system has three integral parts: image enhancement, saliency map formation and Histogram of gradients (HOG) feature extraction for final classification. We propose a novel and efficient image enhancement algorithm, which enhances the saliency of clinically important features in endoscopic images. A saliency detection method is applie...

Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) is the most vital procedure for the diagnosis of upper GI lesions. We aimed to compare the performance of unsedated ultrathin transoral endoscopy (U-TOE), unsedated conventional EGD (C-EGD), and sedated C-EGD, with or without the use of an artificial intelligence (AI) system.

Indeterminate biliary stricture remains a significant diagnostic challenge. The current method of ERCP with bile duct brush cytology has a substantial room for improvement. We aimed to determine the efficacy of a digital single operator cholangioscopy (DSOC) in evaluation of indeterminate biliary stricture.
