Pneumoperitoneum after Endoscopic Duodenal Stent Insertion in a Patient with Percutaneous Transhepatic Biliary Drainage and Biliary Stent: A Case Report

Choi J, Lee MJ, Lee H, Kim Y, Han JH, Park SM

Early removal of a percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD) tube commonly causes pneumoperitoneum. However, we encountered a patient who developed pneumoperitoneum even with an indwelling PTBD tube. An 84-year-old man...
Omental Patching and Purse-String Endosuture Closure after Endoscopic Full-Thickness Resection in Patients with Gastric Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors

Inayat F, Aslam A, Grunwald M, Hussain Q, Hurairah A, Iqbal S

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are the most common mesenchymal tumors of the gastrointestinal tract, primarily arising from the stomach. With the widespread utilization of and technical advancements in endoscopy, gastric...
Primary Gastric Small Cell Carcinoma (Presenting as Linitis Plastica) Diagnosed Using Endoscopic Ultrasound-Guided Biopsy: A Case Report

Cha RR, Cho JK, Kim WS, Kim JJ, Lee JM, Lee SS, Kim HJ

Small cell carcinomas are the most aggressive, highly malignant neuroendocrine tumors; among these, gastric small cell carcinoma (GSCC) is extremely rare. Here we report a case of a patient with...
Blue Laser Imaging with a Small-Caliber Endoscope Facilitates Detection of Early Gastric Cancer

Takahashi , Miura Y, Osawa H, Takezawa T, Ino Y, Okada M, Lefor AK, Yamamoto H

Conventional endoscopy often misses early gastric cancers with minimal red discoloration because they cannot be distinguished from inflamed mucosa. We treated a patient with a small early gastric cancer that...
Buried Barrett's Esophagus with High-Grade Dysplasia after Radiofrequency Ablation

Castela J, Serrano M, de Ferro S, Pereira DV, Chaves P, Pereira AD

Radiofrequency ablation therapy is an effective endoscopic option for the eradication of Barrett's esophagus that appears to reduce the risk of esophageal cancer. A concern associated with this technique is...
Endoscopic Ultrasonography-Guided Gallbladder Drainage as a Treatment Option for Acute Cholecystitis after Metal Stent Placement in Malignant Biliary Strictures

Kozakai F, Kanno Y, Ito K, Koshita S, Ogawa T, Kusunose H, Masu K, Sakai T, Murabayashi T, Yonamine K, Kawakami Y, Fujii Y, Miyamoto K, Noda Y

BACKGROUND/AIMS: It is often difficult to manage acute cholecystitis after metal stent (MS) placement in unresectable malignant biliary strictures. The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of...
Endoscopic Findings in Children with Isolated Lower Gastrointestinal Bleeding

Silbermintz A, Matar M, Assa A, Zevit N, Glassberg , Shamir R

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Colorectal polyps are a common cause of lower gastrointestinal bleeding in children. Our aim was to study the causes of isolated lower gastrointestinal bleeding and to analyze the characteristics...
Efficacy of Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection of Esophageal Neoplasms under General Anesthesia

Hamada K, Kawano K, Yamauchi A, Koyanagi R, Horikawa Y, Nishida S, Shiwa Y, Nishino N, Honda M

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Evidence that general anesthesia (GA) reduces the operative time of esophageal endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is currently insufficient. This study aims to evaluate the efficacy and safety of esophageal...
Technical Feasibility of a Guidetube for Various Endoscopic Procedures in Human Gastrointestinal Simulators

Lee DS, Kim BG, Lee KL, Jung YJ, Kim JW

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Many gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopic procedures are difficult and cumbersome owing to the limitation of currently available endoscopic devices. This study aimed to develop an endoscopic guidetube for multipurpose endoscopic...
Should We Resect and Discard Low Risk Diminutive Colon Polyps

Kandel P, Wallace MB

Diminutive colorectal polyps
Screening Relevance of Sessile Serrated Polyps

Kahi CJ

Conventional adenomas have historically been considered to be the only screening-relevant colorectal cancer (CRC) precursor lesion. The prevailing paradigm was that most CRCs arise along the chromosomal instability pathway, where...
Endoscopic Palliation for Biliary and Pancreatic Malignancies: Recent Advances

Nabi Z, Reddy DN

Malignancies of the pancreatobiliary system are usually unresectable at the time of diagnosis. As a consequence, a majority of these cases are candidates for palliative care. With advances in chemotherapeutic...
Endoscopic Ultrasound-Guided Biliary Drainage for Unresectable Hilar Malignant Biliary Obstruction

Nakai Y, Kogure H, Isayama H, Koike K

Endoscopic transpapillary biliary drainage is the current standard of care for unresectable hilar malignant biliary obstruction (MBO) and bilateral metal stent placement is shown to have longer patency. However, technical...
Endoscopic Ultrasound-Guided Biliary Drainage for Benign Biliary Diseases

Nakai Y, Kogure H, Isayama H, Koike K

Although endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is the first-line treatment for benign biliary diseases, this procedure is technically difficult in some conditions such as a surgically altered anatomy and gastric outlet...
