Purpose of review Upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) is a common and life-threatening condition in the United States and worldwide. Recent findings There have been several exciting recent advances in the endoscopic management of UGIB. One such advance is the recent approval of Hemospray by US Food and Drug Administration in May 2018. Another one is the emerging role of video capsule endoscopy as a triage and localization tool for UGIB patients. Finally, the development of new reversal agents for antithrombotic medications is an important advance in the management of life-threatening upper gastrointestinal bleed. ...
Purpose of review The purpose of this review is to review the past year's literature to provide comprehensive information to researchers, physicians, and the general public regarding the epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment of gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs). Common ground as well as divergent viewpoints will be highlighted and discussed. Recent findings The diagnosis of GISTs may involve imaging tests such as computed tomorgraphy scan and MRI, endoscopy with or without endoscopic ultrasound, and biopsy. Only biopsy, however, can yield a positive diagnosis. As most GISTs express KIT protein, immunostaining f...
ConclusionsPOEM can be a new option for the treatment of esophageal movement disorders, but large sample, multi-center, long-term study reports are needed, and it promotes the development of NOTES technology.
ConclusionsAdverse events in cirrhotic patients undergoing endoscopy appeared to be similar with moderate sedation or MAC, and the frequency was the same for different types of procedures.

A 56-year-old male presented with progressive upper abdominal pain for 5 days at our department. He had neither undergone endoscopy nor recently used non-sterodial anti-inflammatory drugs. He underwent his first upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, showing two openings, which were separated by a bridge, between gastric antrum and duodenal bulb (Fig. 1A, upper panel). A closer endoscopic observation also demonstrated an ulcer in one of the two openings (Fig. 1A, lower panel). Thus, a diagnosis of double pylorus with an ulcer in the gastroduodenal fistula was diagnosed.
