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...

Over the past 10 years, investigators at four Veterans Affairs Medical Centers in the United States devoted considerable expertise refining the method of water immersion colonoscopy. During that period, and through collective, accumulated experience, the technique evolved to its current iteration - water exchange colonoscopy. Water immersion is characterized by suction removal of infused water predominantly during the withdrawal phase of colonoscopy and has a long history of acceptance by colonoscopists. Water exchange is characterized by suction removal of infused water predominantly during endoscope insertion to minimize distention of the colonic lumen...

BACKGROUNDS: The inherent challenges associated with accessing the small bowel (SB) have limited evaluation of this portion of the GI tract. Recent advances in imaging have improved our ability to detect and treat SB pathology. However, little is known regarding the utilization and outcomes of single balloon enteroscopy (SBE). OBJECTIVES: Here we report our single center experience with SBE to examine its efficacy on SB investigation in the Veteran's Affairs population...

Water immersion for colonoscopy was originally developed as an adjunct to air insufflation. It facilitated passage through the sigmoid colon and decreased cecal intubation time. From this technique evolved the water exchange method for screening and diagnostic colonoscopies. Water exchange uses cycles of warm water infusion and suction during insertion in lieu of air insufflation to avoid over-distension of the colon. In this report, we describe a novel application of the water exchange method in the effective and safe treatment of sigmoid volvulus in two patients...

BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS: Iodine 125 radioactive seeds implanted by endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) represent a novel strategy for the treatment of pancreatic cancer. However, its long-term effects still remain unknown. The aim was to provide reliable data of long-term effects. Moreover, whether chemotherapy affects the result of EUS-guided implantation was also determined. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The present study prospectively observed 100 cases of unresectable pancreatic cancer underwent EUS-guided interstitial implantation of 125(I) radioactive seeds...

Yu-Hsi Hsieh, Jin-Jian Hsieh, Felix W Leung
PURPOSE: Water exchange colonoscopy significantly reduces insertion pain. We report a learning curve experience. METHOD: Historic cohort was examined by usual air insufflation during scope insertion. Water exchange in consecutive groups using escalating volumes (group 1 to 3) of infused water, and transitioned from leaving residual air initially unattended (group 1 and 2) to suction removal of all residual air in subsequent practice (group 3). pain (0=none, 10=most severe) was assessed at 2 to 3-minute intervals during insertion or at any time the patient voiced discomfort...
