BACKGROUND AND AIMS: NER1006 is the first 32 fluid ounce (1L) polyethylene glycol-based bowel preparation. This randomized, multicenter, colonoscopist/central reader-blinded Phase 3 non-inferiority trial assessed the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of NER1006 versus trisulfate for bowel cleansing. METHODS: Patients undergoing colonoscopy were randomized (1:1) to receive NER1006 or trisulfate, using evening/morning split-dosing administration. Blinded central readers used the validated Harefield Cleansing Scale (HCS) to evaluate 2 alternative primary endpoints: overall bowel cleansing success and high-quality cleansing of the ascending colon/cecum...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Sham procedures in endoscopy are used with the intention of controlling for placebo response, potentially allowing more precise evaluation of treatment effect. Nevertheless, this type of study may impose significant risk without potential benefit for those in the sham group. The aim of the current study is to systematically review and analyze the endoscopic literature to assess the safety of sham controls. METHODS: MEDLINE and Embase databases were searched for endoscopic sham procedures for all dates through July 2017...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Endoscopy has replaced many radiological studies for the GI tract. However, ERCP remains a hybrid endoscopic-fluoroscopic procedure, which limits its portable delivery, creates delays due to fluoroscopy room unavailability and exposes patients/providers to radiation. We evaluated fluoroscopy/radiation-free management of patients with non-complex choledocholithiasis using direct solitary cholangioscopy (DSC). METHODS: Patients underwent fluoroscopy-free biliary cannulation, sphincterotomy then cholangioscopy to establish location, number/size of stones and document distance from ampulla to bifurcation to guide balloon advancement...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Subepithelial esophageal tumors (SETs) are frequent incidental findings. Although symptomatic tumors are surgically or endoscopically resected, there is no consensus on the management of asymptomatic esophageal leiomyomas. METHODS: Appropriate ICD-9 codes followed by medical record review were used to identify patients with SETs from January 1992 to March 2017, with abstraction of basic demographics, surveillance intervals, and mortality. Patients were contacted to complete a phone questionnaire to assess follow-up and complete the validated brief esophageal dysphagia questionnaire (BEDQ)...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: EUS is a potentially useful modality to assess severity of inflammation in ulcerative colitis (UC). We assessed the reliability of existing EUS indices and correlated them with endoscopic and histologic scores. METHODS: Four blinded endosonographers assessed 58 endoscopic and EUS videos in triplicate, from patients with UC. Intra- and inter-rater reliability of the Hyperemia and Tsuga scores were estimated using intra-class correlation coefficients (ICCs)...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Wide-area transepithelial sampling (WATS) with computer-assisted 3-dimensional analysis is a sampling technique that combines abrasive brushing of the Barrett's esophagus (BE) mucosa followed by neural network analysis to highlight abnormal-appearing cells. METHODS: We performed a randomized trial of referral BE patients undergoing surveillance at 16 medical centers. Subjects received either biopsy followed by WATS, or vice versa. The primary outcome was rate of detection of HGD/EAC using WATS in conjunction with biopsy compared with biopsy alone using standard histopathologic criteria...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Biliary strictures after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) are typically managed by sequential ERCP procedures, with incremental dilation of the stricture and stent exchange (IDSE) and placement of new stents. This approach resolves >80% of strictures after 12 months, but requires costly, lengthy ERCPs with significant patient radiation exposure. Increasing awareness of the harmful effects of radiation, escalating health care costs, and decreasing reimbursement for procedures mandate maximal efficiency in performing ERCP...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Although various endoscopic techniques have been introduced for successful removal of common bile duct (CBD) stones, the optimal method is not yet clear. We aimed to compare the efficacy of different endoscopic techniques for CBD stone removal. METHODS: We searched for all relevant randomized controlled trials published until June 2017, examining the outcomes of endoscopic techniques for CBD stone removal, including endoscopic sphincterotomy (EST), endoscopic papillary balloon dilatation (EPBD), and endoscopic sphincterotomy with balloon dilatation (ESBD)...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The role of electroacupuncture (EA) in reducing sedative and analgesic requirements during EUS is uncertain. The aim of the current study is to investigate the efficacy of EA in reducing procedure-related pain and discomfort during EUS. METHODS: This was a double-blinded randomized controlled study conducted between March 2014 and July 2016. Consecutive patients who were scheduled for diagnostic EUS were recruited and randomized to receive electroacupuncture (EA) or sham-electroacupuncture (SA)...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Post-sleeve gastrectomy fistulas (PSGF) are major adverse events of bariatric surgery. The endoscopic management strategy evolved from closure to internal drainage (ID) after 2013. The main objective was to evaluate and compare these different approaches. METHODS: This retrospective study included all patients treated for PSGF in a referral center. "Closure" management was defined as initial treatment using covered-metal-stent and/or endoclips...

REVIEW

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Long-standing ulcerative colitis is an established risk factor for colorectal neoplasia. A number of observational studies have suggested that evidence of mucosal inflammation (endoscopic or histologic) is associated with a greater risk for colorectal neoplasia than is mucosal healing. Our goal was to systematically analyze the risk of colorectal neoplasia in ulcerative colitis patients with ongoing mucosal inflammation to better inform surveillance strategies. METHODS: We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of the effect of endoscopic and/or histologic inflammation on the risk of colorectal neoplasia in cohort and case-control studies...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic ultrasound-guided gastroenterostomy (EUS-GE) is a developing modality in the management of gastric outlet obstruction (GOO) with several technical approaches including the direct and balloon-assisted techniques. The aim of this study is to compare the direct with the balloon-assisted modality while further defining the role of EUS-GE in GOO. METHODS: Multicenter, retrospective study involving consecutive patients who underwent EUS gastroenterostomy with the direct or balloon-assisted technique for GOO (January 2014-October 2016)...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: This study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of scheduled second-look EGD with endoscopic hemostasis on peptic ulcer rebleeding and sought to identify the risk factors related to the need for second-look EGD. METHODS: We prospectively randomized patients who had endoscopically confirmed bleeding peptic ulcer with stigmata of active bleeding, visible vessel, or adherent clot into 2 groups between August 2010 and January 2013. Hemoclip application or thermal coagulation, and/or epinephrine injection were allowed for initial endoscopic therapy...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Small bowel and colorectal muscle biopsies require a surgical approach. Advancing our understanding of the pathophysiology of motility disorders, such as functional bowel disorders, intestinal pseudo-obstruction and slow transit constipation, is hindered by our inability to non-invasively obtain muscularis propria (MP) for evaluation of multiple cell types, including myenteric neurons. The aims of this study were to determine (1) technical feasibility, reproducibility and safety of performing duodenal endoscopic muscle biopsy (dEMB) and rectal endoscopic muscle biopsy (rEMB) using a clip-assist technique; and (2) presence of myenteric neurons in tissue samples...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Endoscopic full-thickness resection (EFTR) is still challenging and a reliable technique is desirable. The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of controlled EFTR using a pseudopolyp made from suture loop needle-T-tag (SLNT) tissue anchors in ex vivo porcine stomachs. METHODS: Five pig stomachs were used. Two concentric circumferential border mucosal incisions were made to facilitate isolating a target lesion for full-thickness excision and pseudopolyp formation...
