We present a case of a 63-year-old female who presented with small bowel obstruction and perforation secondary to a retained PillCam®. She initially presented with iron-deficiency anaemia (haemoglobin 44 g/L, ferritin 190 mcg/L). After unremarkable upper and lower gastrointestinal endoscopies and biopsies, she was referred for wireless capsule endoscopy (WCE). Four days afterwards she re-presented with small bowel obstruction and perforation related to the PillCam, which was confirmed on X-ray, on computed topography (CT), and at laparotomy...

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common cancer worldwide and the fourth most common cause of death. Reduction in mortality rates in some countries worldwide are most likely ascribed to CRC screening and/or improved treatments. We reviewed the most relevant articles which discuss the cost-effectiveness of colorectal cancer screening procedures, in particular, the recent ones through the last eight years. The effectiveness of screening estimated by discounted life years gained (LYGs) compared to no screening, differed considerably between the studies...

BACKGROUND: Retention is the most common complication of capsule endoscopy (CE), and is reported to occur in 0-13% of cases. To avoid retention, a PillCam patency capsule (PC) is used in patients with suspected intestinal stenosis. However, a relatively low positive predictive value of the PC examination has been reported previously. The aims of this study were to clarify the accuracy of PC examination and to evaluate clinical factors related to cases of false-positive detection. METHODS: We performed a retrospective single-center study of 282 consecutive patients referred for PC examination...

Since it was introduced 17 years ago, capsule endoscopy has become an important diagnostic tool for the small bowel. Three generations of the original small bowel capsule have been developed since (PillCam SB3, Medtronic, USA), and four competitors were introduced for the small bowel. A non-video patency capsule (Agile patency capsule, Medtronic, USA) was also developed, in order to confirm patency and thus avoid retention in the GI tract. Moreover, capsules viewing other organs of the body (esophagus, colon) as well as three different magnetic guided capsules that visualize the stomach as good as optical endoscopy (OE) have been developed...

BACKGROUND: There is interest in ultimately combining endoscopy and motility assessments. Gastric emptying (GET), small bowel (SBTT), colon (CTT) and whole gut transit (WGTT) times are conveniently obtained by SmartPill® wireless motility capsule (WMC) that records luminal pH, temperature and pressure. Reproducibility within same subjects and accuracy of software derived times (MotiliGI® ) were investigated for diagnostic application. GET and SBTT were separately measured using video capsule endoscopy (VCE)...

Patients and methods A comprehensive literature search was conducted. We measured pooled rate of lesion visualization improvement and improvement in lesion detection comparing FICE settings 1 - 3 and WLE, for angioectasias and ulcers/erosions. Pooled results were derived using the random-effects model because of high heterogeneity as measured by I(2). Repeated-measures analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used to measure differences in lesion detection between WLE and the three FICE modes. Results 13 studies were analyzed...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: As already known, spondyloarthritis patients present a striking resemblance in intestinal inflammation with early Crohn's disease. Moreover, the frequent use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs is an important part of their treatment. Both conditions could lead to intestinal stenoses. Therefore we proposed to investigate the usefulness of the patency capsule test in patients with spondyloarthritis. MATERIAL AND METHODS: 64 consecutive patients (33 males; mean age 38 ± 11 years) that fulfilled the AMOR criteria for seronegative spondyloarthropathy (59...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: The manner in which colorectal lesions are being detected with PillCam COLON2 capsule endoscopy (CCE2) has markedly improved in recent days. However, limited data are available on CCE2 for detecting laterally spreading tumors (LSTs). The aim of this study was to compare CCE2 with optical colonoscopy (OC), which is currently the gold standard used in the detection of LSTs. METHODS: We performed a prospective, single-academic center study comparing CCE2 with OC in patients with LSTs diagnosed using OC, which was performed during the 3-month period prior to CCE2...

Background and study aims: Colon capsules display images from the moment they are ingested, making the study of other extracolonic areas possible. The aim of this study was to analyze the significance of these extracolonic findings. Patients and methods: In this single-center, prospective study, 165 patients underwent colon capsule endoscopy (CCE) between September 2009 and October 2012 to rule out colonic pathology. Images were recorded, without interruptions, from the moment the capsule was ingested until its battery ran out...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: A computed assessment of cleansing (CAC) score was developed to objectively evaluate small-bowel cleansing in the PillCam® capsule endoscopy (CE) system and to overcome the subjectivity and complexity of previous scoring systems. Our study aimed to adapt the CAC score to the Mirocam® system, evaluate its reliability with the Mirocam® CE system and compare it with three validated subjective grading scales. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Thirty CE were prospectively and independently reviewed by two authors who classified the degree of small-bowel cleanliness according to a quantitative index, a qualitative evaluation and an overall adequacy assessment...
