REVIEW
B Joseph Elmunzer
Pancreatitis is the most common and potentially devastating complication of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), resulting in significant morbidity, occasional mortality, and increased healthcare expenditures. Accordingly, the prevention of post-ERCP pancreatitis (PEP) remains a major clinical and research priority. Strategies to reduce the incidence of PEP include thoughtful patient selection, appropriate risk-stratification, sound procedural technique, prophylactic pancreatic stent placement, and pharmacoprevention...

We read the article entitled 'Endoscopic biodegradable biliary stents in the treatment of benign biliary strictures: First report on clinical use in patients' by Siiki et al with great interest (1). The authors successfully treated two patients with benign biliary strictures, possibly due to choledocholithiasis, with endoscopic insertion of polydioxanone biodegradable biliary stents. They reported that the treatment was uneventful and the stents were completely dissolved between 3 and 6 months without leaving a sequela in the bile ducts...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The differential diagnosis of localized gallbladder lesions is challenging. The aim of this study was to evaluate the utility of contrast-enhanced harmonic endoscopic ultrasonography (CH-EUS) for diagnosis of localized gallbladder lesions. PATIENTS: One hundred and twenty-five patients with localized gallbladder lesions were evaluated by CH-EUS between March 2007 and February 2014. This was a single-center retrospective study. METHODS: The utilities of fundamental B-mode EUS (FB-EUS) and CH-EUS in the differentiation of gallbladder lesions and sludge plug were initially compared...

OBJECTIVES: In patients with irretrievable or intractable bile duct stone, temporary insertion of plastic stent (PS) followed by further ERCP or surgery has been recommended as a "bridge" therapy. However, the exact mechanism of stone fragmentation has not been discovered. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether PS shape can facilitate stone fragmentation. METHODS: Using a new in vitro bile flow phantom model, we compared the friction effect among the three different PS groups (straight PS group; double pigtail-shaped PS group, and screw-shaped PS group) and the control group...

Confocal laser endomicroscopy (CLE)(1)) and endocytoscopy system (ECS)(2)) have made optical biopsy in the digestive tract a reality. However, for omission of biopsy histology, visualization of nuclei is essential. In ECS, nuclei can be observed after vital staining with methylene blue, toluidine blue etc.(3)) , and vital staining in CLE requires venous injection or spraying of fluorescein into the gastrointestinal lumen(4)) . However, fluorescein does not stain nuclei. Acriflavin, a topical antiseptic drug, can stain nuclei for CLE observation(5)) , but it has not been widely used because of associated adverse events...

A 76-year-old man with positive fecal occult blood tests underwent colonoscopy, which revealed a laterally spreading tumor completely surrounding a diverticulum in the ascending colon. He was referred to our hospital for further examination and treatment. A second colonoscopy revealed that the laterally spreading tumor involved an entire diverticulum in the posterior wall of the ascending colon. This article is protected by copyright.

Epstein-Barr virus-associated gastric cancer (EBV-GC) accounts for 8.7% of gastric cancer.(1) EBV-GC is associated with lower prevalence of lymph node metastasis (LNM), and better prognosis.(1-3) However, little is known regarding intramucosal EBV-GC. We report a case of multiple synchronous lesions of intramucosal EBV-GC. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

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.

Satoshi Ono, Kazuhiko Koike
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]...
