Deep learning approaches have a great potential to help clinicians detect, localize, and determine the severity of CD with pan-enteric CE.

Clinical impact of routine CT esophagogram after peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) for esophageal motility disorders
Conclusions POD 1 CT esophagogram after POEM for esophageal motility disorders diagnosed clinically meaningful AEs in 14 % of patients, all associated with persistent clinical symptoms. Routine use of CT esophagogram after POEM in asymptomatic patients is questionable.

Endo-sponge in management of anastomotic colorectal leaks: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Conclusions Endoscopic vacuum therapy appears to be a minimally invasive, safe, and effective treatment modality for patients with a significant colorectal leak without any generalized peritonitis with high clinical and technical success rates and a low rate of adverse events. Further prospective or randomized controlled trials are needed to validate our findings.

Double tunnel technique reduces technical failure during POEM in cases with severe submucosal fibrosis
Conclusions Severe SMF is the most common reason for technical failure during POEM. DT-POEM improves the technical success rates of POEM in patients with severe SMF.

Bowel preparation with 1L polyethylene glycol and ascorbate NER1006 doubles the chance to detect three or more adenomas in overweight or obese males
Endosc Int Open 2021; 09: E1324-E1334 DOI: 10.1055/a-1499-6681 Background and study aims Men have more colon cleansing failures, colorectal adenomas, and colorectal cancers than women. We analyzed whether 1-liter (1 L) polyethylene glycol (PEG) NER1006 improves high-quality (HQ) colon cleansing and adenoma detection in males versus two mid-volume alternatives. Patients and methods The analysis of 1028 adult patients in two randomized clinical trials was performed. Adenoma detection and HQ cleansing were compared for overnight split dosing regimens with NER1006 (n = 513) versus combined oral sulfate so...

Unified magnifying endoscopic classification for esophageal, gastric and colonic lesions: a feasibility pilot study
Conclusions UMEC appears to be a simple and practically acceptable classification, particularly to general gastroenterologists, due to its good diagnostic accuracy, and deserves further evaluation in future studies.

The mucin phenotype does not affect the endoscopic resection outcome of non-ampullary duodenal epithelial tumors
Conclusions This study suggests that the mucin phenotype does not affect resection outcome. However, considering high malignant potential and tendency for low AE rates, the gastric type NADETs may be more appropriate for proactive ER than the others.

Artificial intelligence and colon capsule endoscopy: automatic detection of blood in colon capsule endoscopy using a convolutional neural network
Endosc Int Open 2021; 09: E1264-E1268 DOI: 10.1055/a-1490-8960Colon capsule endoscopy (CCE) is a minimally invasive alternative to conventional colonoscopy. Most studies on CCE focus on colorectal neoplasia detection. The development of automated tools may address some of the limitations of this diagnostic tool and widen its indications for different clinical settings. We developed an artificial intelligence model based on a convolutional neural network (CNN) for the automatic detection of blood content in CCE images. Training and validation datasets were constructed for the development and testing of the CNN. The CNN dete...

Comparison of endoscopic resection techniques for duodenal neuroendocrine tumors: systematic review
Conclusions EMR-C or EMR-I should be preferred for resectioning of dNETs. Polypectomy should not be indicated for resection of dNETs due to the high occurrence of incomplete resections. EMR alone must be avoided due a higher frequency of compromised margin and recurrent surgery. ESD was associated with no recurrence, however, but an increased occurrence of bleeding and perforation.
