Performance of White Light, NBI and Iodine Staining Endoscopy in the Diagnosis of Esophageal Lesions
Conditions: Mild Dysplasia of Esophagus; Moderate Dysplasia of Esophagus; Severe Dysplasia of Esophagus; Carcinoma in Situ of Esophagus; Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma Intervention: Diagnostic Test: Endoscopic examination using white light, NBI and iodine staining Sponsor: Beijing Cancer Hospital Recruiting
Conclusions Mucosal inspection and delineation of tumors with lugol chromoendoscopy before endoscopic resection of esophageal squamous cell lesions was not associated with increased complete lateral resection rate when compared to NBI.

CONCLUSIONS: We implemented this simple method in order to secure the devastated airway, sparing the need for a demanding rigid bronchoscopy, or use of a costly ECMO expedient. PMID: 32988709 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionOverall survival and disease-free survival were equivalent between SE and PE. Local recurrence was noted to be increased with SE, though this did not appear to affect survival. Although planned esophagectomy remains the standard of care, salvage esophagectomy has comparable outcomes and is appropriate for selected patients.
ConclusionESD is a viable, effective, and safe therapeutic and staging modality for superficial lesions of the stomach and esophagus.
Endoscopy DOI: 10.1055/a-1231-5123This manuscript represents an official Position Statement of the European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) aiming to guide general gastroenterologists to develop and maintain skills in optical diagnosis during endoscopy. In general, this requires additional training beyond the core curriculum currently provided in each country. In this context, ESGE have developed a European core curriculum for optical diagnosis practice across Europe for high quality optical diagnosis training. 1 ESGE suggests that every endoscopist should have achieved general competence in upper and/...
Abstract Lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma (LELC) of esophagus is an extremely rare tumor only a few cases were successfully treated with endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD). We herein report one case of superficial esophageal LELC with adjacent squamous intraepithelial neoplasia successfully treated by ESD, and the status of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection and microsatellite instability (MSI) were detected simultaneously. A 71-year-old woman presented with complaints of substernal discomfort. Under endoscopy, a dome-shaped bulge of 1.2 cm × 0.8 cm was located at the mucosal lamina propria in the left l...
ConclusionsMost diagnostic parameters were higher when done by the AI system than by the experts. These results suggest that our AI system could potentially provide useful support during endoscopies.
Conclusion: Relative to normal stent, radioactive stents showed a higher patency and overall survival in OESCC patients.
Conclusions As previously demonstrated in expert centers, NBI was more specific than Lugol in current gastroenterology practice for the detection of early SCC, but combined approaches with both NBI and Lugol could improve the detection of squamous neoplasia.

This study makes a presentation of the artificial intelligence terminology and refers also to the most prominent recent research on computer-assisted diagnosis of neoplasia on Barrett's esophagus and early esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, and prediction of invasion depth in esophageal neoplasms. Furthermore, this review highlights the main directions of future doctor-computer collaborations in which machines are expected to improve the quality of medical action and routine clinical workflow, thus reducing the burden on physicians.
