PURPOSE: Traditionally, colonoscopies have required sedation to facilitate patient tolerance, mandating that the patient have an escort on the day of the procedure. In an effort to improve patient absenteeism, the West Los Angeles VA Medical center introduced a policy change offering scheduled unsedated colonoscopies to the veteran population starting June 3, 2013. Here we analyze data resulting from that policy change. METHODS: We performed a retrospective study of patients who either underwent or were planned to have undergone an unsedated colonoscopy from May 1, 2013 to October 31, 2013 at our facility...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Capsule endoscopy is the first-line examination for small bowel disease. This study was aimed to compare the performance between the frequency-altering AKE-1 capsule (AKE) and the Pillcam SB2 (PSB) capsule. METHODS: Patients with suspected small bowel disease aged 18 to 70 years were prospectively enrolled in two tertiary referral centers. AKE and PSB were swallowed by the same patient 40 minutes apart in randomized order. The primary endpoint was the normal versus abnormal judgment, and the secondary endpoint included the complete small-bowel examination rate and the diagnostic yield...

BACKGROUND: Compared with air insufflation (AI), water-exchange (WE) colonoscopy increases adenoma detection rate (ADR) in the right colon. The impact of insertion methodological differences on withdrawal examination has not been studied. OBJECTIVE: To develop and validate a novel method for analyzing distractions from mucosal inspection, bowel preparation scores and yield of quality outcome in prerecorded videos. DESIGN: Edited videos of the withdrawal phase of screening colonoscopies meeting inclusion criteria...

Veeral M Oza, Prathima Pangulur, Robert Kirkpatrick
What is new in this Letter to the Editor: This case and image emphasizes the importance of considering incomplete esophageal rupture in all patients who present with nausea, as well as in those patients who have hematemesis, as they are at high risk to progress to a complete rupture. We would like to emphasize that this presentation of Boerhaave's is unique in the sense that the patient denied any vomiting, and initially, neither had physical exam findings of pneumo-mediastinum nor any evidence of perforation, but on endoscopy was noted to have essentially an incomplete perforation, and the picture is an excellent representation of an incomplete perforation, and clearly shows the muscle fibers...

Gastric antral vascular ectasia (GAVE) is a rare clinical disease which can cause recurrent upper gastrointestinal (GI) tract bleeding. It is responsible for about 4% of non-variceal upper GI haemorrhages. GAVE was also named as watermelon stomach (WS) for its characteristic endoscopic performance. Though the etiology of GAVE is unknown, it received several presumptions according to its histopathological features. Treatments of GAVE can be separated into three categories: pharmacologic, endoluminal, and surgical approaches...

BACKGROUND: Reports of water exchange (WE) colonoscopy did not describe complications, but the safety of the WE method has not been critically evaluated. AIM: We report the vital signs, cardiac rhythm and serum electrolyte levels before and after large volume water exchange. Unsedated patients are chosen for evaluation to avoid the confounding effects of sedation medications. PATIENT AND METHOD: Patients in two randomized controlled trials (RCT) comparing the use of air insufflations (AI) vs...

OBJECTIVE: Sacral Nerve Stimulation (SNS) is an effective but expensive intervention for management of Faecal Incontinence (FI) offered primarily in tertiary centres. It is estimated that 30%-50% of patients fail to respond to temporary SNS. Aim of this study was to evaluate the value of anorectal investigations in patient selection and also to report the mid-term patient results and SNS related morbidity in a secondary referral centre. METHOD: 38 patients (36 female) with FI were offered temporary SNS between January 2008 - May 2012...

Iatrogenic perforation of the oesophagus is life threatening, usually managed surgically. A 4 year-old boy sustained an intra-operative oesophageal perforation while undergoing laparoscopic redo-Nissen Fundoplication for gastrooesophgeal reflux symptoms. After several failed attempts to manage the patients surgically and conservatively, he was successfully treated by deployment of a temporary covered stent. Although commonly employed as an alternative management option in adults, the use of temporary covered stents in the paediatric population is rare especially for nonmalignant disease...

BACKGROUND: Opportunities for trainees to learn the basics of papillotomy prior to performance on patients is desirable. A papillotomy scoring scale provides objective assessment of papillotomy performance. AIM: To determine the effects of teaching and simulation practice on papillotomy performance using disposable papillae and the endoscopic retrograde cholangio-pancreatography (ERCP ) mechanical simulator (EMS). METHOD: Trainees attended workshops with didactic talks on how to perform the "perfect" biliary papillotomy...

BACKGROUND: The water method of colonoscopy has been shown to increase adenoma detection rate in the United States veteran population, but this has not yet been demonstrated in a non-veteran community setting in the United States. AIMS: Our aim is to perform a retrospective study to compare adenoma detection rate between the air and the water colonoscopy methods for screening colonoscopies at a non-veteran community site. METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of 100 patients from before and after a single community endoscopist transitioned from air colonoscopy to water colonoscopy...

PURPOSE: Water-aided colonoscopy, immersion (WI) or exchange (WE), minimizes insertion pain and reduces sedation. WE improves adenoma detection rates (ADR). In a performance improvement program, we assessed water-aided methods in a busy community GI practice in Canada. METHODS: Over a 13 month period patients were offered water-aided colonoscopy with an option to complete the examination with on-demand sedation. WI was used in the first 1-2 months and replaced exclusively with WE thereafter...
