Background and study aims:  Although several endoscopic techniques have been described for Zenker's diverticulotomy, no standardized endoscopic approach has been established in clinical routine to date. This study aimed to assess the efficacy and safety of endoscopic diverticulotomy using the Clutch Cutter. Patients and methods:  Cricopharyngeal myotomy was performed in six prospectively enrolled patients with symptomatic Zenker's diverticulum, using the Clutch Cutter...

BACKGROUND: Symptomatic sacral Tarlov cysts have been associated with perineal or sacral pain, radiculopathy, urinary dysfunction. The ideal treatment of symptomatic sacral Tarlov cysts remains a matter of discussion. Numerous open surgical procedures have been proposed, which vary from placement of shunts and clipping to laminectomy and fenestration. And those surgeries often associated with recurrence, cerebrospinal fluid leakage, infection and other complications. At present, no percutaneous endoscopic surgical procedures have been reported to solve this problem...

The objectives of this study were to develop a methodology for biopsying the rumen and colon of young dairy calves and to collect suitable quality tissue samples for microscopic and gene expression analysis. Six Holstein dairy bull calves (45.0 ± 1.5 kg birth weight) were ruminally cannulated during the second week of life and weaned at the end of wk 6. Ruminal and colon tissue samples were collected at the end of wk 5, 6, 7, 8, and 12. Calves were not sedated but were restrained in a chute for sampling. The endoscope (100 cm length, 9...

AIM: To determine short- and long-term outcomes of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) using the stag beetle (SB) knife, a scissor-shaped device. METHODS: Seventy consecutive patients with 96 early esophageal neoplasms, who underwent ESD using a SB knife at Kure Medical Center and Chugoku Cancer Center, Japan, between April 2010 and August 2016, were retrospectively evaluated. Clinicopathological characteristics of lesions and procedural adverse events were assessed...

BACKGROUND: Prosthetic materials wrapped around a portion of the stomach have been used to provide gastric restriction in bariatric surgery for many years. Intraluminal erosion of adjustable and nonadjustable gastric bands typically occurs many years after placement and results in various symptoms. Endoscopic management of gastric band erosion has been described and allows for optimal patient outcomes. OBJECTIVES: We will describe our methods and experience with endoscopic management of intraluminal gastric band erosions after bariatric procedures...

Background and study aims Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for colorectal neoplasms remains challenging because of technical issues imposed by the complex anatomical features of the large intestine. We evaluated the feasibility, and the short- and long-term clinical outcomes of ESD for early colorectal neoplasms performed using the Stag-beetle Knife Jr. (SB Knife Jr.) Patients and methods We retrospectively assessed 228 patients who underwent ESD for 247 colorectal lesions with the SB Knife Jr. Clinicopathological characteristics of the neoplasms, complications, and various short- and long-term outcomes were evaluated...

Treatment of Zenker's diverticulum by flexible endoscopy consists of the myotomy of the cricopharyngeal muscle and is considered to be feasible, effective and safe. This report describes the novel use of a Clutch Cutter® device to perform flexible endoscopic retreatment of a symptomatic recurrence after previous treatment using a Needle knife in a 68 year old woman with symptoms of dysphagia for solids.

Differentiating between the cases of megaureter that require surgery and the ones in whom treatment can be delayed is challenging. A large number of surgical techniques for the treatment of POM been proposed aiming mainly to reduce renal damage by relieving the affected ureter. Resection of the affected ureteral segment followed by vesicoureteral reimplantation either with or without reduction ureteroplasty is the classic treatment, however posing a high rate of complications when performed in patients aged less than one year...

We show the use of a new endoscopic drill for the management of web-like tracheal stenosis. Our device creates radial holes within stenosis that facilitate the use of scissors for cutting the scar tissue and the subsequent mechanical dilatation.

BACKGROUND: Banded-gastric bypass is a highly effective bariatric procedure, yet the possibility of band erosion remains a significant drawback. Surgical removal of eroded bands may be associated with significant morbidity. In this study, we assess the efficacy and safety of a solely peroral endoscopic approach for the management of eroded bands in patients with a banded-gastric bypass. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Starting January 2012, all patients with banded-gastric bypass and an eroded band were subjected to an attempt at peroral endoscopic removal using endoscopic scissors and/or argon plasma coagulation (APC), regardless of the circumference of band eroding inside the lumen...

Diagnosing pleural effusion is challenging, especially in patients with malignant or benign fibrothorax, which is difficult to sample using standard flexible forceps (SFF) via flex-rigid pleuroscopy. An adequate sample is crucial for the differential diagnosis of malignant fibrothorax (malignant pleural mesothelioma, metastatic lung carcinoma, etc.) from benign fibrothorax (benign asbestos pleural disease, tuberculous pleuritis, etc.). Novel biopsy techniques are required in flex-rigid pleuroscopy to improve the sample size and quality...

BACKGROUND: The incidence of caudal stent migration in high tracheal stenting is 13-21% and is common with silicone stents. This can lead to major problems, including emergency repeat procedures. Several antimigration methods are described, but have limitations in terms of their success rate, availability, cost or ease of the procedure. OBJECTIVES: We describe an innovative method of stent migration prevention using a simple percutaneous anchoring "hitch stitch", validated in a large series...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Colorectal endoscopic submucosal dissection (C-ESD) is recognized as a difficult procedure. Recently, scissors-type knives were launched to reduce the difficulty of C-ESD. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the combined use of a scissors-type knife and a needle-type knife with a water-jet function (WJ needle-knife) for C-ESD compared with using the WJ needle-knife alone. METHODS: This was a prospective randomized controlled trial in a referral center...

BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS: Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for early gastric cancer (EGC) is technically difficult for beginners. Few comparative studies of technical feasibility, efficacy, and safety using various devices have been reported. This study evaluated the feasibility, efficacy, and safety of ESD for EGC < 2 cm using grasping-type scissors forceps (GSF) or insulated-tip knife (IT2) for three resident endoscopists. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This was a randomized phase II study in a cancer referral center...
