Interventional endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) is currently becoming the less invasive therapeutic approach for the drainage of pancreatic fluid collections, of acute cholecystitis in patients unfit for surgery and for biliary drainage after failed endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography. In addition, EUS-guided gastroenterostomy (EUS-GE) has recently emerged as a feasible procedure to treat patients with gastric outlet obstruction, as an alternative to surgery or to standard endoscopy when endoscopic stent placement is not possible...

Lymphangioma is a rare, benign mesenchymal neoplasm, which is characterized by numerous intercommunicating cystic spaces containing lymphatic fluid. It is considered a congenital disease resulting from the obstruction of regional lymph drainage during the developmental period. Lymphangioma frequently occurs in the cervical neck and axilla, also in the retroperitoneum, mediastinum, mesentery, omentum, colon, and pelvis, rarely in the perirenal space. These tumors usually present in childhood, but infrequently, these also present in adults...

Insulinomas are the most common cause of hypoglycemia resulting from endogenous hyperinsulinism. The diagnosis of insulinoma is established by demonstrating inappropriately high serum insulin concentrations during a spontaneous or induced episode of hypoglycaemia. Most of the insulinomas are islet-cell tumors. They are often small (less than 2 cm), benign, and difficult to localize with current imaging techniques. The non-invasive procedures such as transabdominal ultrasonography, spiral computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), 111-In-pentetreotide imaging, fluorine-18-L-dihydroxyphenylalanine positron emission tomography ((18)F-DOPA PET) and invasive procedures such as endoscopic ultrasonography or a selective arterial calcium stimulation test (SACST) with hepatic venous sampling can be used to show insulinomas...

Background/Aims: Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is the initial therapy recommended for patients with high likelihood of choledocholithiasis. To determine whether endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) can prevent diagnostic ERCPs in patients with high probability of choledocholithiasis and inconclusive ultrasonography (US). Methods: All patients with high likelihood of choledocholithiasis and negative US underwent EUS. ERCP was performed for the patients who showed a definite stone/sludge on EUS...

BACKGROUND: Insulinomas are the most common pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms. In spite of adequate pre-operative localisation, conventional surgical methods rely on intraoperative palpation. Intraoperative ultrasonography (IOUS) is said to aid in accurate localisation, decreases morbidity. Laparoscopic removal of pancreatic endocrine neoplasms is beneficial due to magnification and minimal invasion; however, in the absence of IOUS, error of judgement may lead to conversion to open surgery, thereby relying on 'palpation method' to localise the tumour...

Through a comprehensive scan of collateral circulation establishment in portal hypertension, endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) can predict the risks of esophageal and gastric varices, variceal bleeding, recurrence after treatment, and rebleeding and guide and participate in the treatment of varices. With the help of these advantages, EUS provides an important reference for individualized treatment in patients with liver cirrhosis complicated by portal hypertension and can improve response rate and safety. As a new method for systematic evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of portal hypertension, EUS has become a new research hotspot in recent years...

Although gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) comprise less than 1% of all gastrointestinal (GI) tract tumors, they are the most common mesenchymal tumors of the GI tract. Gastrointestinal stromal tumors can occur anywhere along the GI tract, but the stomach and small intestine are the most frequently involved sites. Gastrointestinal stromal tumors are frequently asymptomatic, and one-third of all cases are found incidentally. Endoscopy, endoscopic ultrasonography, and computed tomography are useful tools in the diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Conventional endoscopy and endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) are used to estimate the invasion depth of early-stage gastric cancers (EGCs), but estimates made by either technique are often inaccurate. We developed a model to determine the invasion depth of EGCs using conventional endoscopy and EUS findings, with pathology results as the reference. METHODS: We performed a retrospective study of 195 patients (205 lesions) diagnosed with gastric cancers who underwent endoscopy and EUS followed by resection...

Urethral stones can become impacted in the posterior urethra, typically presenting with varying degrees of acute urinary retention and lower urinary tract symptoms. These are traditionally treated in the inpatient setting, with external urethrotomy or endoscopic push-back of the calculus into the urinary bladder followed by cystolitholapaxy or cystolithotripsy. However, these methods are invasive, involve general anesthesia, and require radiation. In this report, we describe a simple, minimally invasive, and safe alternative technique to visualize and remove impacted prostatic urethral stones under the real-time guidance of transrectal ultrasonography (TRUS)...

BACKGROUND: Posterior urethral valve (PUV) is life-threatening congenital anomaly of the urinary tract that results in vesicoureteric reflux, recurrent UTI, voiding dysfunction and renal insufficiency if not treat timely. Endoscopic ablation of posterior urethral valves using cold knife or laser is the current gold standard therapy. Many urologists go for repeat cystoscopy to see residual valve or stricture while others repeat VCUG to measure the posterior to anterior urethral ratio for residual obstruction...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The most accurate technology to detect and diagnose subepithelial tumors (SETs) is the endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) combined with puncture techniques, such as the endoscopic ultrasonography-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) or the endoscopic ultrasonography-guided fine-needle biopsy. Going further in the improvement of the results of tumor samples obtained endoscopically to diagnose the SETs, the canalization technique guided by miniprobes (MPs) to obtain biopsies of SET could be an alternative to EUS-FNA...

BACKGROUND: In the era of endobronchial/esophageal ultrasound (EBUS-TBNA/EUS-FNA), many centers forgo conventional transbronchial needle aspiration (C-TBNA) in favour of EBUS-TBNA/EUS-FNA despite no conclusive evidence showing better yields with EBUS-TBNA/EUS-FNA. OBJECTIVES: Assess the feasibility of an algorithmic approach for mediastinal sampling beginning with C-TBNA utilizing rapid onsite cytologic evaluation. METHODS: Descriptive analysis of 92 consecutive patients referred for adenopathy that underwent C-TBNA and subsequent EBUS-TBNA/EUS-FNA if C-TBNA was negative or nondiagnostic...

Pancreatic cancer is a highly lethal disease in gastrointestinal malignant tumors. The mortality of pancreatic cancer closely parallels its incidence. Most patients with pancreatic cancer remain asymptomatic until the disease reaches an advanced stage. There is no program for screening patients at high risk of pancreatic cancer. Although CT, MRI, positron emission tomography, endoscopic ultrasonography, and endoscopic ultrasonography-guided fine-needle aspiration offer high diagnostic ability for pancreatic cancer, it cannot be found at the early stage easily...
