BACKGROUND AND AIM: The manner in which colorectal lesions are being detected with PillCam COLON2 capsule endoscopy (CCE2) has markedly improved in recent days. However, limited data are available on CCE2 for detecting laterally spreading tumors (LSTs). The aim of this study was to compare CCE2 with optical colonoscopy (OC), which is currently the gold standard used in the detection of LSTs. METHODS: We performed a prospective, single-academic center study comparing CCE2 with OC in patients with LSTs diagnosed using OC, which was performed during the 3-month period prior to CCE2...

BACKGROUND: Although there is evidence about the beneficial effects of probiotics, their effects on aspirin-induced small bowel injuries have not been well examined. We evaluated the effects of the probiotic Lactobacillus gasseri OLL2716 (LG) on aspirin-induced small intestinal lesions, such as ulcers, erosions, reddened lesions, and bleeding. SUMMARY: This study enrolled 64 patients who received aspirin for more than 1 month and provided written informed consent to be part of the study...

Rectal neuroendocrine tumors (RNETs) have become common in recent years and are good candidates for endoscopic resection (ER). To achieve clear resection margins, more advanced techniques such as endoscopic submucosal dissection, endoscopic submucosal resection with a ligation device, and cap-assisted endoscopic mucosal resection are available for ER. After ER, lymphovascular invasion (LVI) is regarded as an important predictor of nodal metastasis. Previous studies have shown that small RNETs with LVI were uncommon (0-8...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Delayed gastric emptying is one of the reasons why functional dyspepsia (FD) occurs. The 13C-acetate breath test is widely used to evaluate gastric emptying. Nevertheless, the standard value of 13C-acetate breath test has not taken into account the gender difference of gastric emptying among healthy individuals. The main aim of this study was to readjust the standard value of 13C-acetate breath test in the light of gender differences. In addition, we clarified the prevalence and clinical characteristics of delayed gastric emptying in patients with FD using the modified standard values of 13C-acetate breath test...

BACKGROUND: Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) causes chronic abdominal pain and abnormal bowel movements. The etiology involves complicated interactions among visceral hypersensitivity, disorders related to bowel movements, and stress. Changes in the microbiota affect the IBS pathophysiology. We investigated changes in colorectal motility, structure, and microbiota in response to stress due to maternal separation (MS) and corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) administration in rats. SUMMARY: Neonatal rats were separated from their mothers for 3 h daily from postnatal day (PND) 2 to PND14...

BACKGROUND: Non-Helicobacter pylori-helicobacters (NHPH) compose a group of gram negative zoonotic bacteria that may induce in humans gastric diseases including gastritis, gastroduodenal ulcer and MALT lymphoma. Their prevalence in the general population has previously been reported to 0.1-6.2%, although such reports still remain less in number. AIMS: This study aimed at estimating the prevalence of gastric NHPH in Japanese people, and further aimed at linking this to different gastric diseases and co-infection with H...

BACKGROUND: Based on Chicago Classification version 3.0, the disorders of esophagogastric junction outflow obstruction (EGJOO) include achalasia (types I, II and III) and EGJOO. Although no curative treatments are currently available for the treatment of the disorders of EGJOO, medical treatments, endoscopic pneumatic dilation (PD), laparoscopic Heller myotomy (LHM), and per-oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) are usually the sought-after modes of treatment. Since the etiology and pathogenesis might vary depending on the types of EGJOO disorders, treatment strategies should be considered based on those subtypes...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic submucosal resection (ESD) and endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) are well established as curable and safety procedures for treating superficial tumors of the stomach, esophagus and colon. However, a majority of endoscopic resection strategies for non-ampullary superficial duodenal tumors (NASDTs) remains undefined. The aim of this study was to clarify which was the right method for NASDT treatment - EMR or ESD. SUMMARY: We analyzed 129 consecutive endoscopic resection (74 ESD and 55 EMR) procedures performed with NADSTs and divided the ESD group into 49 large ESD groups (more than 20 mm in diameter) and 25 small ESD groups (less than 20 mm in diameter)...

Endoscopic full-thickness resection (EFTR) is a procedure that makes it possible to access the lesions that are on the wall of the digestive tract via the shortest distance through the mouth. Because of the ultra-minimal invasive nature of the treatment, pure EFTR is a highly promising surgical procedure that allows the radical excision of full-thickness layers of digestive tract tumors using only a flexible endoscope. There are 2 types of EFTR methods: exposed and non-exposed. Considering the risks of contracting infection and intraperitoneal dissemination of tumor cells, non-exposed EFTR is an ideal method...

BACKGROUND: Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) damage the small intestine by causing multiple erosions and ulcers. However, to date, no established therapies and prophylactic agents are available to treat such damages. We reviewed the role of intestinal microbiota in NSAID-induced intestinal damage and identified potential therapeutic candidates. SUMMARY: The composition of the intestinal microbiota is an important factor in the pathophysiology of NSAID-induced small intestinal damage...

INTRODUCTION: Determining the dignity of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) by imaging procedures is challenging. Various CT-based criteria were evaluated. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Preoperative CT scans from 47 patients with IPMN were analyzed. Predefined criteria of malignancy were compared between patients with benign (bIPMN; n = 28) and malignant (mIPMN; n = 19) tumors, and a summation score was determined. RESULTS: Preoperative carbohydrate-antigen 19-9 levels were higher in patients with mIPMN (p = 0...
