Mitsuru Esaki, Sho Suzuki, Takuji Gotoda
Gastric submucosal tumors (G-SMTs), such as gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs), often arise from the muscularis propria, which consists of at least two layers (inner circle and outer longitudinal muscle). Laparoscopic and endoscopic cooperative surgery or endoscopic resection has been performed for G-SMTs1-5 However, these procedures require closure of the gastric-wall. Here, we present a case of successful endoscopic selective muscular dissection for a G-SMT without closure. This article is protected by copyright...

An 84-year-old man with a history of distal gastrectomy for the treatment of gastric cancer presented with epigastric pain and underwent esophagogastroduodenoscopy. Visualization showed a large tumor in the esophagus (Figure 1A) and minute elevation with whitish granules in the duodenum (Figure 1B). Narrow-band imaging with magnified endoscopy (NBI-ME) showed enlarged villous structures with white vesicles and enlarged and meandering superficial vessels without irregularity (Figure 1C).

A 54-year-old woman underwent a routine screening colonoscopy. The procedure was difficult to perform because of a tortuous sigmoid colon and was interrupted when the patient developed severe abdominal pain. During withdrawing, a large perforation of approximate 25 X 50 mm was found at 4 cm proximal to the dentate line (Fig. 1). AS an emergency remedial step, the EPSS with a double-channel endoscope was performed immediately This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

A 74-year-old man was referred to our hospital for treatment of a 20 mm-sized esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). Upper endoscopy revealed that most of the lesion extended into a diverticulum (Fig. 1a, b). Intrapapillary capillary loops (IPCL) pattern implied that the carcinoma did not invade deep submucosa (Fig. 1c)1 . Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) depicted the fourth layer of the esophagus wall inside the diverticulum, suggesting a true diverticulum and that endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) was technically feasible (Fig...

OBJECTIVES: Colonic spasm can interfere with colonoscopy, but antispasmodic agents can cause complications. This study aimed to assess the inhibitory effect of topical lidocaine compared with a placebo control. METHODS: In five tertiary-care hospitals in Japan, 128 patients requiring endoscopic resection of a colorectal lesion were enrolled and randomly and double-blindly allocated to colonoscopy with topical administration of 2% lidocaine solution 20mL (LID, n=64) or normal saline 20mL (control, n=64)...

OBJECTIVES: Immunohistological evaluations are essential for diagnosing subepithelial tumors (SETs). However, endoscopic ultrasound-guided sampling using fine-needle aspiration (FNA) needles is limited in its ability to procure core tissue for immunostaining. Fine-needle biopsy (FNB) needles may mitigate this limitation. This study aimed to examine the efficacy of FNB needles for procuring samples that enable the diagnosis of SETs. METHODS: One hundred sixty patients were included in the study and separated into those whose samples were obtained using FNB needles (FNB group) and those whose samples were procured using FNA needles (FNA group)...

REVIEW
Ivo Boškoski, Guido Costamagna
Many different types of endoscopy robots have been developed or are under development. Some of these innovative biotechnologies are dedicated to complex endoscopic procedures as endoscopic submucosal dissection while others are purely diagnostic. In endoscopy robotics there are still several problems that need a solution. These problems concern basically robotic locomotion and instrument control from on hand and clinical application on the other. In most of the cases the technology is still under development...

OBJECTIVES: Endoscopic papillectomy (EP) has been attempted not only for benign lesions but also for early ampullary carcinoma (AC). However, there is still no sufficient evidence or consensus regarding the effectiveness of EP for early AC. Herein, we evaluated the expanding indication of EP for early AC. METHODS: Between May 1999 and December 2016, 177 patients were diagnosed as having ampullary tumor before undergoing EP, and their clinical and histopathological data were analyzed retrospectively...

We illustrate a complex case in which there was concomitant duodenal stump leak and surgical transection of the papilla salvaged by endoscopic methods. A 50 year-old gentlemen with known history of abdominal liposarcoma underwent multiple debulking resection since 2005. His last follow-up computed tomography (CT) showed extensive progression of the tumor. Debulking of the tumor with resection of the uncinate process and the 2nd to 4th part of the duodenum was performed. This article is protected by copyright...

Esophageal stent was used to treat the esophageal diseases, such as leaks, fistula, malignant strictures 1 . The stent migration rate is as high as 26.9%2 . Several techniques have been used to fix stents. However, the fixation ability was limited due to the mucosal layer anchoring. Overstitch™ was first reported to fix stents by Kantsevoy 3 ,which can promote rates of clinical success and not increase rates of adverse events 45 . This article is protected by copyright.

Probe-based confocal laser endomicroscopy (pCLE) is a revolutionary modality that enables "optical biopsy" by enabling real-time imaging of the digestive tract 1 . Application of a fluorescent agent is required to enable imaging by endomicroscopy. Therefore, it is necessary to develop feasible methods with specific safety agents.

We present the case of a 70-year-old man with post-hepatectomy biloma. After percutaneous drainage, an endoscopic nasobiliary drainage (ENBD) tube (7.5 Fr Flexima: Boston) was placed in the bile duct connected with the biloma. (1-5) However, we needed time to conduct selective guiding because of the narrowness and tortuosity of the bile duct. When conversion to internal drainage was planned, we thought that scope insertion beside the ENBD tube may have the risk of tube removal and selective re-guiding might be impossible...

INTRODUCTION: Walled-off pancreatic necrosis (WON) frequently develops after necrotizing pancreatitis. Endoscopic drainage has become the preferred modality for symptomatic or infected WON. The aim of this study was to assess health-related quality of life (HR-QOL) and long-term outcomes in patients undergoing endoscopic drainage for WON. METHODS: Patients undergoing endoscopic drainage of WON from January 2006 to May 2016 were identified. Data recorded included demographic information, and the incidence long-term sequelae including pancreatic endocrine and exocrine insufficiency...

REVIEW
Hiroshi Kashida
The aim of the present review is to clarify how we should detect and diagnose SSPs endoscopically. A systematic search was conducted of MEDLINE, from January 2004 through March 2018. Nine findings: a) proximal location, b) size>10mm, c) irregular shape, d) indistinctive border, e) cloud-like surface, f) mucus cap, g) rim of debris, in white-light endoscopy, h) dilated vessels, and i) dilated crypts (pits) in image-enhanced endoscopy were considered to be candidate discriminators of SSPs from HPs. Prospective studies in a general setting are warranted to validate the above-mentioned endoscopic features of SSP during real-time colonoscopy and to determine whether these features are useful for the differential diagnosis of SSPs...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Colorectal cancer patients often present with large bowel obstruction. Elective placement of a self-expandable metallic stent (SEMS) can relieve obstruction, but can be challenging. Previous studies have compared cases by outcomes only, but the present study investigated successful cases only to identify factors related to prolonged and difficult SEMS placement in patients with malignant colonic obstruction. METHODS: A post-hoc analysis of a multicenter clinical trial conducted between March 2012 and October 2013 at 46 facilities across Japan (UMIN000007953) was carried out; 511 patients who required SEMS placement for acute colorectal obstruction or symptomatic stricture secondary to malignant neoplasm were enrolled...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Extensive use of laxatives and incomplete excretion rates are problematic for colon capsule endoscopy (CCE). The aim of the present study was to determine the effectiveness of castor oil as a booster. METHODS: At four Japanese hospitals, 319 examinees undergoing CCE were enrolled retrospectively. Before and after the introduction of castor oil, other preparation reagents were unchanged. RESULTS: Of 319 examinees who underwent CCE, 152 and 167 examinees took regimens with castor oil (between November 2013 and June 2016) and without castor oil (between October 2015 and September 2017), respectively...

Endoscopic ultrasound-guided drainage and endoscopic necrosectomy (EN) has become an effective procedure for peripancreatic fluid collection (PFC). [1-3]. However, the rate of procedure related complications is 33-36% [4-5]. Bleeding is one of the major complications, and endoscopic hemostasis is difficult in most cases. A 77-year-old man was admitted for fever and abdominal pain. Computed tomography showed a large amount of ascites around the liver. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved...

The efficacy of balloon enteroscopy-assisted endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) for patients with surgically altered gastrointestinal anatomy has been previously reported. However, although this method allows the endoscope to reach the papilla, successful biliary cannulation is difficult. Unlike normal ERCP, directions in these patients are reversed, and it is difficult to adjust the catheter in the direction of the bile duct. Intubating the cannula to the papilla is therefore time-consuming...
