INTRODUCTION: Electronic virtual chromoendoscopy (EVC) can demonstrate ongoing disease activity in ulcerative colitis (UC), even when Mayo subscores suggest healing. However, applicability of EVC technology outside the expert setting has yet to be determined. METHODS: 15 participants across 5 centers reviewed a computerized training module outlining high-definition (HD) and EVC (i-Scan) colonoscopy modes. Interobserver agreement was then tested (Mayo score, UCEIS and the Paddington International virtual ChromoendoScopy ScOre [PICaSSO] for UC), using a colonoscopy video library (n=30 cases reviewed pre- and n=30 post-training)...

BACKGROUND: Devices used to improve polyp detection during colonoscopy have seldom been compared with each other. METHODS: We performed a 3-center prospective randomized trial comparing high-definition (HD) forward-viewing colonoscopy alone to HD with Endocuff to HD with EndoRings to the Full Spectrum Endoscopy (FUSE) system. Patients were age ≥50 years and had routine indications and intact colons. The study colonoscopists were all proven high-level detectors...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The aim of this study was to examine the prospective association between visceral obesity and the incidence and recurrence of colorectal adenoma. METHODS: We conducted a cohort study involving 2,244 participants between 2006 and 2007. The study participants were prospectively followed until 2014 according to the initial colonoscopic and histopathologic findings. Incident and recurrent colorectal adenoma groups were defined as individuals with a positive follow-up colonoscopy from among the normal and adenoma groups, respectively, at the baseline colonoscopy...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: The tissue acquisition and diagnostic yield of cyst fluid cytology is low-to-moderate and rarely provides a specific diagnosis. The aim of this study was to compare the tissue acquisition and diagnostic tissue yield of micro-forceps biopsy (MFB) with cyst fluid cytology. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The data of 42 patients, whose cysts were aspirated by EUS-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) and then biopsied with MFB device in this multicenter study, were collected...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Individuals without a family history of colorectal cancer (CRC) are screened uniformly despite interpersonal risk. To assess individual risk, we examined the age-specific prevalence of advanced colorectal neoplasia (ACRN) according to clinical risk factors and fecal immunochemical test (FIT) results. METHODS: Participants without a family history of CRC who underwent screening colonoscopy and FIT were included. Clinical risk factors for ACRN were identified using a logistic regression model...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Fistulas in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) poses a key challenge in the management of the IBD patients. We aimed to describe a novel endoscopic method to treat the IBD patients who have fistulas. METHODS: A cohort of 29 consecutive patients with a fistula and IBD were identified in the registry of our interventional IBD unit. The endoscopic fistulotomy with needle-knife was performed. The primary outcome was healing of the fistula without the need for surgical intervention...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: The management of subepithelial tumors with a predominant extraluminal growth pattern or extra-gastrointestinal (GI) tumors can be challenging and traditionally requires a surgical resection that is not only invasive but may carry a significant risk of morbidity and mortality. We aim to assess the feasibility, safety and efficacy of a novel endoscopic technique termed as submucosal tunnel endoscopic resection for Extraluminal Tumors (STER-ET). METHODS: We prospectively enrolled patients who underwent STER-ET for gastrointestinal subepithelial tumors with a predominant extraluminal growth pattern or extra-GI tumors located at the level of cardia or the proximal part of the lesser curvature of the stomach seen on cross-sectional imaging between January 2016 and March 2017...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: There is limited data on the use of volumetric laser endomicroscopy (VLE) in imaging for colon polyps. Our aim was to identify VLE features of colon polyps. METHODS: A total of 45 patients were included. 43 underwent endoscopic mucosal resection of colorectal polyps 2 cm or greater. These polyps were then scanned with VLE immediately after resection. Two patients that underwent partial colonic resection served as controls. RESULTS: Forty-three polyps were included with review of matching histology: 3 intramucosal adenocarcinoma (IMCA), 5 tubular adenoma (TA)/tubulovillous adenoma (TVA) with high-grade dysplasia (HGD), 9 TVA with only low-grade dysplasia (LGD), 5 serrated adenoma (SA), and 21 TA with LGD...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Colorectal cancer (CRC) screening can reduce CRC incidence and mortality, but measuring screening adherence over time is challenging. We examined adherence using a novel measure characterizing the proportion of time covered (PTC) by screening tests. METHODS: Eligible patients were age 50 to 60 years and followed at a large, safety-net healthcare system between January 2010 and September 2014. We estimated PTC as the number of days up-to-date with screening divided by number of days from cohort entry until study end, CRC diagnosis, or death...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: A small but significant proportion of patients with Barrett's esophagus (BE) have persistent dysplasia or intestinal metaplasia (IM) after treatment with radiofrequency ablation (RFA). Cryotherapy is a cold-based ablative modality that is increasingly being used in this setting. We aimed to better understand the efficacy of second-line cryotherapy in BE patients with persistent dysplasia or IM after RFA by conducting a systematic review and meta-analysis. METHODS: We performed a systematic literature search of PUBMED, EMBASE, and Web of Sciences through September 1, 2017...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The gastrointestinal tract (GIT) is rarely affected by secondary tumors. Patients often present at advanced stage, and prognosis is dismal. This study aimed to analyze clinical, endoscopic and pathological features of secondary tumors that had been diagnosed endoscopically. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective database analysis of 217 patients with secondary tumors of the GIT. Endoscopic findings and histological diagnoses were systematically re-evaluated...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: In a pilot study (8) we demonstrated that current guidelines for duodenoscope and linear echoendoscope (DLE) reprocessing using a single cycle of high-level disinfection (HLD) in an automated reprocessor may be inadequate. In August 2015, the FDA offered double-HLD as a possible response to address this concern. As a result, Providence Health & Services adopted double-HLD as standard procedure for DLE, but no rigorous clinical studies supported this practice. We undertook a quality improvement (QI) study to compare single-HLD versus double-HLD at 4 of our 34 hospitals...
