Peroral endoscopic myotomy for the treatment of achalasia patients with Roux-en-Y gastric bypass anatomy
Endoscopy DOI: 10.1055/a-0656-5530 Background The outcome of peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) in patients with prior Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is not known and some experts have recommended against its performance in this patient population because of the risk of postoperative regurgitation. The aim of this study was to report on the outcomes of POEM in patients with RYGB anatomy. Methods Patients with RYGB anatomy who underwent POEM for the treatment of achalasia at three tertiary centers were included. POEM was performed in standard fashion using the anterior or posterior approach. Clinical respon...

Effects of two instrument-generation changes on adenoma detection rate during screening colonoscopy: results from a prospective randomized comparative study
Endoscopy DOI: 10.1055/a-0607-2636 Background Previous studies have shown that multiple colonoscope features have to be changed before an improvement in adenoma detection rate (ADR) becomes obvious, such as with changing from one instrument generation to the next but one. We wanted to evaluate whether such an effect can also be observed in a private-practice screening setting. Methods In a randomized study, we compared the latest generation colonoscopes from one company (Olympus Exera III, 190) with the next to last one (Olympus 165), including only patients presenting for screening colonoscopy. The primary...

A systematic review of advanced endoscopy-assisted lithotripsy for retained biliary tract stones: laser, electrohydraulic or extracorporeal shock wave
Endoscopy DOI: 10.1055/a-0637-8806 Background When conventional endoscopic treatment of bile duct stones is impossible or fails, advanced endoscopy-assisted lithotripsy can be performed by electrohydraulic lithotripsy (EHL), laser lithotripsy, or extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL). No systematic review has compared efficacy and safety between these techniques.

Results After screening 795 studies, 32...

Self-expandable metal stent placement for malignant esophageal strictures – changes in clinical outcomes over time
Endoscopy DOI: 10.1055/a-0644-2495 Background Self-expandable metal stents (SEMSs) are effective for improving dysphagia in patients with incurable esophageal cancer but are also associated with recurrent dysphagia and adverse events. In the past decades, new SEMSs have been introduced, but also patients’ risk profiles have altered. It is unknown if these changes have affected SEMS outcomes. Methods This retrospective cohort study was conducted in a tertiary referral center in the Netherlands. Patients who underwent palliative esophageal SEMS placement for malignant dysphagia between 1994 and 2017 wer...
