Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)-related perforation is classified into three or four types based on anatomical location and the mechanism of injury. Although ampullary injury, among them, may be managed nonsurgically,...
Cecal Fecaloma Due to Intestinal Tuberculosis: Endoscopic Treatment

Kim SM, Ryu KH, Kim YS, Lee TH, Im EH, Huh KC, Choi YW, Kang YW

Colorectal fecaloma is a mass of accumulated feces that is much harder in consistency than a fecal impactation. The rectosigmoid area is the common site for fecalomas and the cecum...
Successful Treatment of Early Gastric Cancer Adjacent to a Fundal Varix by Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection and Endoscopic Cyanoacrylate Therapy

Kim YS, Cho WY, Cho JY, Jin SY

Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) was developed for the en bloc resection of large early gastrointestinal neoplasms. A disadvantage of ESD is its technical difficulty, which requires advanced skills and is...
A Case of Giant Lipoma Causing Chronic Recurrent Intussusception of the Colon

Lee CS, Lee MJ, Kim KL, Kim YS, Baik GH, Kim JB, Kim DJ, Han SH

Colonic lipomas, which often occur in elderly women, usually have small size and occur mainly in the cecum and ascending colon. Most colonic lipomas are asymptomatic and identified incidentally at...
Effectiveness of Premedication with Pronase for Visualization of the Mucosa during Endoscopy: A Randomized, Controlled Trial

Lee GJ, Park SJ, Kim SJ, Kim HH, Park MI, Moon W

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Gastric mucus should be removed before endoscopic examination to increase visibility. In this study, the effectiveness of premedication with pronase for improving visibility during endoscopy was investigated. METHODS: From April...

Goo JC, Seong MH, Shim YK, Lee HS, Han JH, Shin KS, Choi JW, Youn SJ, Park SM

BACKGROUND/AIMS: This study assessed the antibiotic resistance organisms isolated from the blood and bile of acute cholangitis and evaluated risk factors associated with them and their impact on clinical outcomes. METHODS:...
Expression of MUC5AC and Trefoil Peptide 1 (TFF1) in the Subtypes of Intestinal Metaplasia

Song JY, Kim BW, Lee AW, Lee KY, Chung IS, Lee BI, Choi H, Ji JS, Chae HS, Choi KY

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Alterations of the expression pattern of mucins and trefoil peptides have been described in gastric adenocarcinomas and in their precursor lesions. The aim of this study was to determine...
The Clinical Meaning of Benign Colon Uptake in 18F-FDG PET: Comparison with Colonoscopic Findings

Roh SH, Jung SA, Kim SE, Kim HI, Lee MJ, Tae CH, Choi JY, Shim KN, Jung HK, Kim TH, Yoo K, Moon IH, Kim BS

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Benign colon 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake is frequently observed in asymptomatic individuals. Aims of this study were to investigate the benign colon uptake by whole body FDG-positron emission tomography (PET)...
Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug-Induced Enteropathy

Lim YJ, Yang CH

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are one of the most commonly prescribed drugs in the world. NSAID-induced lower gastrointestinal (GI) complications are increasing while upper GI complications are decreasing. Lower GI...
How Can We Get the Best Results with Endoscopic Ultrasound-Guided Fine Needle Aspiration?

Ramesh J, Varadarajulu S

Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) has evolved to become an indispensable tool for tissue acquisition. While the overall diagnostic accuracy of EUS-FNA is greater than 90% for lung cancer...
Endoscopic Ultrasound-Guided Fine Needle Aspiration in Cystic Pancreatic Lesions

Hawes RH, Clancy J, Hasan MK

Incidental pancreatic cysts are being increasingly recognized recently with incremented concern about health and frequent health check-up. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) has emerged as the principal modality for imaging pancreas for...
Endoscopic Ultrasound-Guided Fine Needle Aspiration in Hollow Viscus Cancer

Kim EY

Accurate cancer staging is essential in patients with hollow viscus malignancy to decide therapeutic modalities. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is considered as the best modality for local staging of hollow viscus...
Endoscopic Ultrasound-Guided Fine Needle Aspiration in Submucosal Lesion

Moon JS

A submucosal lesion, more appropriately a subepithelial lesion, is hard to diagnose. Endoscopic ultrasonography is good to differentiate the nature of submucosal lesion. For definite diagnosis, tissue acquisition from submucosal...
Introduction; Value of Endoscopic Ultrasound-Guided Fine Needle Aspiration

Kim EY

Introduction of endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) to medical practice has brought a huge change in diagnostic algorithm of many gastrointestinal diseases. Addition of EUS-guided fine needle aspiration (FNA) upgraded diagnostic power...
