Follicular dendritic cell sarcoma (FDCS) is extremely rare in small intestine that only four cases(1-4) were reported in English literature so far. We herein report the fifth case. A 71-year-old man with a history of colonoscopic polypectomy presented to our hospital because of left lower abdominal pain for one year. The laboratory test lack specificity. Computed tomographies (CT) scan indicated small intestinal mass, possibly lymphoma. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Benign biliary stricture (BBS) occurs in 7.3%-30.0% patients with chronic pancreatitis(1, 2) . In the management of BBS, fully covered self-expandable metallic stent (FCSEMS) is currently well used(3-5) . However, proximal migration of FCSEMS occurs in 10.0% recipients and is much more difficult to manage(5) . A 44-year-old man was admitted with abdominal pain and recurred obstructive jaundice a month after removal of last biliary plastic stents. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS: Autoimmune bullous disease (ABD) is induced by autoantibodies against cell adhesion molecules, and blistering may occur on the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose, mouse, oral cavity, laryngopharynx, and esophagus. The endoscopic prevalence and features of ABD-associated esophageal lesions are not well known. We conducted this investigation to assess the endoscopic prevalence of ABD-associated mucosal lesions. The endoscopic prevalence of mucosal lesions, particularly laryngopharyngeal and esophageal lesions was used as the primary endpoint to assess the significance of upper gastrointestinal endoscopy (UEG), and the clinical and endoscopic features were secondary endpoints...

BACKGROUND: Preoperative cholangitis after preoperative drainage has been reported to increase postoperative complications, particularly pancreatic fistula. We therefore examined the effects of cholangitis after preoperative endoscopic biliary drainage (EBD) on postoperative pancreatic fistula in patients with middle and lower malignant biliary strictures. METHODS: The study group comprised 102 patients who underwent EBD among patients who underwent surgery. RESULTS: Of the 102 patients, 33 (32%) had postoperative pancreatic fistulas, and 56 (55%) had preoperative cholangitis after preoperative drainage...

We prospectively analyzed the clinical outcomes of 72 patients (2,3) and we came to similar conclusions. Conceptually, covered stents present the advantage to prevent tumor ingrowth within the stent, and, being more compliant, they could facilitate pyloric motility. However, they dislodge more easily, and distal migration of the stent can lead to serious consequences (4). This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Endoscopy plays an important role in the clinical daily practice of diagnosis and treatment in gastrointestinal diseases. Aggressive endoscopists have been developing novel endoscopic procedures for various diseases that had been treated by surgery a few decades ago [1-3]. However, bleedings associated with endoscopic procedures are still inextricable complications and major concerns for endoscopists even though endoscopic procedures are less invasive compared to surgery. On the other hand, as the number of patients receiving antithrombotics is increasing in the clinical daily practice, endoscopists encounter more patients who require endoscopic procedures during antithrombotic therapy [4]...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Peri-procedural bridging (PPB) with heparin is recommended for patients with high thromboembolic risk who need to withhold antithrombotic therapy for colonoscopic polypectomy. However, little is known about the bleeding risk from heparin-bridging therapy itself. METHODS: MEDLINE and EMBASE databases were searched through January 2017 for studies that compared the risk of PPB in patients who received heparin-bridging therapy in lieu of antithrombotic agents for colonoscopic polypectomy and those who discontinued antithrombotic agents without receiving heparin...

The management of small bowel diseases has evolved since the advent of capsule endoscopy (CE) and balloon-assisted enteroscopy (BAE). One of the most common indications of enteroscopy is obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (OGIB), and followed by small bowel stenosis, tumors, and inflammatory bowel diseases. Although these enteroscopes have been regarded as useful tools, a proper guideline is urged to ensure that we manipulate these enteroscopes safely and efficiently in clinical practice. Herein, the Japanese Gastroenterological Endoscopy Society (JGES) has developed "Clinical Practice Guideline for Enteroscopy" in collaboration with the Japanese Society of Gastroenterology, the Japanese Gastroenterological Association, and the Japanese Association for Capsule Endoscopy...

For decades, hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been considered a treatment option in patients with chronic radiation-induced proctitis after pelvic radiation therapy. Refractory cases of chronic radiation-induced proctitis include ulceration, stenosis, and intestinal fistulas with perforation. Appropriate treatment needs to be given. In the present study, we assessed the efficacy of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in five patients with radiation-induced rectal ulcers. Significant improvement and complete ulcer resolution were observed in all treated patients; no side-effects were reported...

OBJECTIVES: Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for dysplastic Barrett's esophagus (BE) is highly effective. RFA failures are infrequent but can be a challenging cohort to manage. There is limited data on the feasibility of liquid nitrogen cryospray ablation for the complete eradication of dysplasia (CE-D) and/or intestinal metaplasia (CE-IM) after RFA has failed to achieve CE-IM in patients with dysplastic BE. METHODS: This is a retrospective review from two medical centers of prospectively maintained databases looking at patients that underwent liquid nitrogen cryospray ablation for refractory intestinal metaplasia post failed RFA...

The newly developed endoscopic ultrasonography-guided rendezvous procedure (EUS-RV) is used after failed endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) [1,2]. Guidewire manipulation is one of the most challenging aspects of EUS-RV. A rescue technique that bounces back the guidewire from the perihilar bile duct in a long endoscopic position is commonly used. Herein, we describe a case using EUS-RV in a short endoscopic position.
