Contralateral sublaminar approach for decompression of the combined lateral recess, foraminal, and extraforaminal lesions using biportal endoscopy: a technical report
ConclusionWe successfully utilized biportal endoscopy to decompress the combined lumbar lateral recess, foraminal, and extraforaminal lesions using a contralateral sublaminar approach.
Conditions: Drug Induce Sleep Endoscopy; Hypnosis; Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome Intervention: Procedure: Drug induce sleep endoscopy of upper aerodigestive tract under hypnosis Sponsors: Elsan; European Clinical Trial Experts Network; Polyclinique Poitiers Completed
ConclusionsThe VR system could save the report preparation time and the total time. This novel system may improve the efficiency of endoscopy-related tasks.
Objective: To summarize the existing literature for several promising minimallyinvasive tests to measure disease activity in EoE.Data Sources: Literature searches were performed using PubMed. Keyword combinations included eosinophilic esophagitis and minimally-invasive techniques, including the esophageal string test, Cytosponge, transnasal endoscopy, technetiumlabeled heparin, and non-invasive biomarkers.Study Selections: Retrospective and prospective observational studies, peer-reviewed reviews, and systematic reviews were selected.

This article discusses emerging imaging technologies used in prostate, kidney, and bladder cancer surgery, including ultrasound, fluorescence-based, and enhanced endoscopy techniques including their strengths and limitations.
This study aimed to establish the role of real-time AI in stratifying the relapse risk of patients with UC in clinical remission.
Closure of endoscopic resection defects can be achieved with through-the-scope clips, over-the-scope clips or endoscopic suturing. However, these devices are often limited by their inability to close large, irregular, and difficult to reach defects. Thus, we aimed to assess the feasibility and safety of the novel through-the-scope suture-based closure system that was developed to overcome these limitations.
Esophageal symptoms are commonly encountered in clinical practice from a variety of conditions including GERD, motility abnormalities, functional disorders, structural anomalies, and behavioral conditions. Esophageal function testing has become an integral component for evaluation of selected individuals with these disorders. This technology document provides an overview of the current esophageal function technologies including functional luminal imaging probe (FLIP), high-resolution esophageal manometry (HRM), and multichannel intraluminal impedance (MII) and pH monitoring.
Intern Med. 2021 Oct 19. doi: 10.2169/internalmedicine.8241-21. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTObjective According to consensus guidelines, eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is defined as a clinicopathological entity whose symptoms and histology must always be considered together. However, endoscopic findings typical of EoE are often seen in asymptomatic esophageal eosinophilia (aEE). We aimed to clarify the clinicopathological features of aEE. Methods We retrospectively compared cases of aEE and those of symptomatic EoE. Patients or Materials We reviewed 146 patients who underwent upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and were con...
