Pancreatitis kills cysts: A phenomenon that illustrates the potential role of immune activation in premalignant cyst ablation
Endosc Int Open 2020; 08: E1039-E1041 DOI: 10.1055/a-1196-1343 Background and study aims Pancreatic cystic lesions are being increasingly recognized on cross-sectional imaging and mucinous premalignant cysts represent one of the most prevalent types. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided chemoablation offers a safe and minimally invasive ablation approach yet with limited efficacy. Patients who develop acute pancreatitis as a complication of chemoablation with alcohol however experience ablation rates up to 100 %. This evidence suggests that recruitment of the body’s immune system may represent an avenue to si...

Usefulness of epinephrine-added injection solution to reduce procedure time for gastric endoscopic submucosal dissection
Endosc Int Open 2020; 08: E1044-E1051 DOI: 10.1055/a-1192-4202 Background and study aims Epinephrine-added submucosal injection solution is used to facilitate hemostasis of non-variceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding and to prevent delayed bleeding of large pedunculated colorectal lesions.

Covid-19 pandemic impact on colonoscopy service and suggestions for managing recovery
Endosc Int Open 2020; 08: E985-E989 DOI: 10.1055/a-1196-1711 Background and aim As the post-peak phase of the epidemic is approaching, there is an urgent need of an action plan to help resume endoscopy activity. To manage the Covid-19 pandemic-imposed backlog of postponed colonoscopy examinations, an efficient approach is needed. The practice of on-demand sedation with benzodiazepines and/or opiates will allow most patients to complete a water-aided examination with minimal or no sedation. Other methods reported to minimize patient discomfort during colonoscopy can be used, in addition to water-aided techniques. Un...
