The role of EUS in diagnosis and treatment of liver disorders
Endosc Int Open 2019; 07: E1262-E1275 DOI: 10.1055/a-0958-2183 Background and aim Transabdominal ultrasound (US), computed tomographic scanning (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are established diagnostic tools for liver diseases. Percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography is used to perform hepatic interventional procedures including biopsy, biliary drainage procedures, and radiofrequency ablation. Despite their widespread use, these techniques have limitations. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), a tool that has proven useful for evaluating the mediastinum, esophagus, stomach, pancreas, and biliary tract, has an ...

Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle biopsy is superior to fine-needle aspiration in assessing pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors
This study compared endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle biopsy (EUS-FNB) to fine-needle aspiration (FNA) in assessing PanNETs. Patients and methods All pancreatic histology for PanNET between January 2009 and June 2017 was included if EUS sampling was performed prior to surgical resection. Ki67 and grade from FNA and FNB samples was compared to surgical histology using correlation coefficient and kappa values. Subgroup analysis was performed for purely solid lesions, lesions

Overall outcomes of laparoscopic-assisted ERCP after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and sphincter of Oddi dysfunction subgroup analysis
Conclusions Consistent with other published series, LA-ERCP yields excellent cannulation rates after RYGB. Successful treatment of pancreatic and Type 1 biliary SOD suggests that there is significant symptomatic benefit to treating this patient population. However, an overall complication rate of approximately 15 % with LAERCP leaves open the possibility for improvements in access techniques in post-RYGB patients.

Evaluation of the feasibility of intrapancreatic delivery of drug-loaded microparticles via EUS-guided fine needle injection using a swine model
Conclusions This pilot study demonstrated that fiducial marker placement and pancreatic EUS-FNI of MPs was successful in all pigs with no animals demonstrating pancreatitis. Further studies are needed to determine the role for intralesional injection of drug-loaded MPs in borderline resectable or unresectable pancreatic cancer.

Endoscopic ultrasound-guided creation of an enterocolostomy to relieve malignant bowel obstruction
We report a novel application of the AXIOS stent and electrocautery-enhanced delivery system to create an enterocolostomy to bypass a small bowel obstruction in the setting of recurrent malignant bowel obstruction. A 72-year-old patient presented with recurrent malignant bowel obstruction and was deemed unfit for surgery. Endoscopic ultrasound was used to deploy an AXIOS stent, creating an enterocolostomy resolving the obstruction.

Endoscopic ultrasound-guided rendezvous in benign biliary or pancreatic disorders with a 22-gauge needle and a 0.018-inch guidewire
Conclusions EUS-RV may be a safe and feasible salvage method for unsuccessful cannulation for benign disorders. Use of a 22-gauge needle with a 0.018-inch guidewire may be the first option for benign pathology.

Instant messenger smartphone application for endosonographer/cytopathologist real-time interaction at a distance in EUS-FNA for solid pancreatic lesions
Endosc Int Open 2019; 07: E1027-E1030 DOI: 10.1055/a-0965-6631 Background and study aims Telecytopathology (TCP) may allow proper and timely evaluation of endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) specimens. The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of TC through a multiplatform instant messenger smartphone application to evaluate specimens of EUS-FNA of pancreatic solid lesions. Patients and methods Twenty-three patients (14 male/9 female; median age: 56 yr.; age range: 33 – 86) with a solid pancreatic lesion were included. Exclusion criteria were as follows: age

Magnification endoscopy with optical chromoendoscopy shows strong correlation with histologic inflammation in patients with inflammatory bowel disease
Endosc Int Open 2019; 07: E1018-E1026 DOI: 10.1055/a-0953-1334 Background and study aims Apart from mucosal healing as an established treatment goal in inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), recent evidence suggests that histologic healing may become another key prognostic parameter in IBD patients. We aimed to evaluate whether magnification endoscopy with optical chromoendoscopy can accurately assess histologic inflammation in IBD patients. Patients and methods In this prospective study, 82 patients with IBD (30 UC, 52 CD) were included. In all patients, magnification endoscopy in conjunction with optical chro...

Utilizing fourth-generation endocytoscopy and the ‘enlarged nuclear sign’ for in vivo diagnosis of early gastric cancer
Conclusion: Fourth-generation endocytoscopy appears to aid in the diagnosis of early gastric cancer, particularly well-differentiated adenocarcinomas, due to its good diagnostic accuracy and identification of the “enlarged nuclear sign,” and deserves further evaluation in future studies.

Outcome of endoscopic resection of colonic polyps larger than 10  mm in patients with inflammatory bowel disease
Endosc Int Open 2019; 07: E994-E1001 DOI: 10.1055/a-0953-2021 Background and study aims There are limited published data on endoscopic removal of colorectal polyps by endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) and endoscopic mucosal dissection (ESD) in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Patients and methods We performed a retrospective review of patients with colonic IBD and colonic polyps>10mm who underwent EMR and/or ESD at our institution between January 1, 2012 and June 31, 2016. Results Ninety-seven patients with pathology-confirmed IBD (median disease duration 16 years) were included...
