Fasciola hepatica infection may result in biliary obstruction with or without cholangitis in the chronic biliary phase. Because clinical symptoms and signs of F. hepatica are similar to other biliary...
Successful Palliation of a Malignant Cologastric Fistula with a Covered Self-Expanding Metal Stent

Breitenbauch MTW, Tottrup A

When patients present with malignant cologastric fistulas, the tumor stage is often advanced and management is only palliative. We report the case of a 75-year-old man with a symptomatic cologastric...
Unexpected Delayed Colon Perforation after the Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection with Snaring of a Laterally Spreading Tumor

Ko YB, Lee JM, Kim WS, Kwak MS, Lee JW, Shin DY, Yang DH, Byeon JS

Colonic perforation may occur as a complication of diagnostic and therapeutic colonoscopy. The risk factors for perforation after colorectal endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) include an inexperienced endoscopist, a large tumor...
Delayed Pneumoperitoneum and Acute Pulmonary Edema Secondary to Acute Gastric Dilatation

Ahn JY, Kim JK

Pneumoperitoneum caused by acute gastric dilatation (AGD) is a very rare complication. We report a case of pneumoperitoneum and acute pulmonary edema caused by AGD in a patient with Parkinson's...
Utility of Over-the-Scope Clipping for Closure of a Persistent Post-Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy Fistula under Long-Term Steroid Therapy

Arao Y, Sato Y, Hashimoto , Honda H, Yoko K, Takamura M, Mizuno KI, Kobayashi

A 50-year-old woman had a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube placed after surgery for pharyngeal cancer. After 21 months, the PEG tube was removed due to improvement of per-oral ingestion....
Eosinophilic Gastritis Presenting as Tissue Necrosis

Jo YM, Jang JS, Han SH, Kang SH, Kim WJ, Jeong JS

Eosinophilic gastroenteritis is very rare disorder that is characterized by eosinophilic infiltration of the gastrointestinal tract in the absence of any definite causes of eosinophilia. It is associated with various...
Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection for Recurrent or Residual Superficial Esophageal Cancer after Chemoradiotherapy: Two Cases

Hwang C, Youn YH, Choi SE, Jung YH, Park HY, Park JJ, Kim JH, Park H

We report two cases of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for recurrent or residual esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) lesions after chemoradiotherapy for advanced esophageal cancer. Case 1 involved a 64-year-old...
Esophageal Lymphoepithelioma-Like Carcinoma with Unique Daisy-Like Appearance

Olmez S, Can A, Yavuz A, Iliklerden UH, Bulut G

Due to differences in prognosis and management, it is important to subclassify esophageal carcinoma. Esophageal lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma (LELC) is extremely rare, with only a few cases reported to date. Review...
The Clinical Usefulness of Simultaneous Placement of Double Endoscopic Nasobiliary Biliary Drainage

Kim HJ, Lee SK, Ryu CH, Park DH, Lee SS, Seo DW, Kim MH

BACKGROUND/AIMS: To evaluate the technical feasibility and clinical efficacy of double endoscopic nasobiliary drainage (ENBD) as a new method of draining multiple bile duct obstructions. METHODS: A total of 38 patients...
Endoluminal Closure of Colon Perforation with Endoscopic Band Ligation: Technical Feasibility and Safety in an In Vivo Canine Model

Han JH, Kim M, Lee TH, Kim H, Jung Y, Park SM, Chae H, Youn S, Shin JY, Lee IK, Lee TS, Choi SH

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Endoscopic band ligation (EBL) is an accepted method in the management of variceal bleeding; however, there is little evidence on the safety and feasibility of EBL for the closure...
A Randomized Controlled Clinical Study Comparing the Diagnostic Accuracy of the Histologic Prediction for Colorectal Polyps Depending on the Use of Either Magnified or Nonmagnified Narrow Band Imaging

Kim JJ, Hong KS, Kim JS, Jung HC

BACKGROUND/AIMS: The aim of this study was to compare the diagnostic capabilities of narrow band imaging (NBI) colonoscopy with and without optical magnification in differentiating neoplastic from nonneoplastic colorectal polyps. METHODS:...
The AIMS65 Score Is a Useful Predictor of Mortality in Patients with Nonvariceal Upper Gastrointestinal Bleeding: Urgent Endoscopy in Patients with High AIMS65 Scores

Park SW, Song YW, Tak DH, Ahn BM, Kang SH, Moon HS, Sung JK, Jeong HY

BACKGROUND/AIMS: To validate the AIMS65 score for predicting mortality of patients with nonvariceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding and to evaluate the effectiveness of urgent ( or =2) were allocated to either...
An Ultrathin Endoscope with a 2.4-mm Working Channel Shortens the Esophagogastroduodenoscopy Time by Shortening the Suction Time

Shinozaki , Miura Y, Ino Y, Shinozaki , Lefor AK, Yamamoto H

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Poor suction ability through a narrow working channel prolongs esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD). The aim of this study was to evaluate suction with a new ultrathin endoscope (EG-580NW2; Fujifilm Corp.) having...
Usefulness and Future Prospects of Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy for Gastric Premalignant and Malignant Lesions

Lee SK

Confocal laser endomicroscopy (CLE) is a new technology enabling endoscopists to visualize tissue at the cellular level. CLE has the fundamental potential to provide a histologic diagnosis, and may theoretically...
Advanced Imaging Technology Other than Narrow Band Imaging

Cho JH

To improve the detection rate of gastrointestinal tumors, image-enhanced endoscopy has been widely used during screening and surveillance endoscopy in Korea. In addition to narrow band imaging (NBI) with/without magnification,...
Advanced Imaging Technology in Biliary Tract Diseases:Narrow-Band Imaging of the Bile Duct

Choi HJ, Moon JH, Lee YN

Newly introduced direct peroral cholangioscopy and the development of video choledochoscopes have enabled more defined observation of bile duct mucosal lesions with clearer images. Narrow-band imaging (NBI) is a unique...
Polyp Detection, Characterization, and Management Using Narrow-Band Imaging with/without Magnification

Utsumi T, Iwatate M, Sano W, Sunakawa H, Hattori S, Hasuike N, Sano Y

Narrow-band imaging (NBI) is a new imaging technology that was developed in 2006 and has since spread worldwide. Because of its convenience, NBI has been replacing the role of chromoendoscopy....
Clinical Application of Magnifying Endoscopy with Narrow-Band Imaging in the Stomach
