BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS: Obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (OGIB) is defined as bleeding of unknown origin that persists or recurs after an initial negative investigation. Identifying the source of OGIB represents a diagnostic challenge that is frequently focused on visualizing the small intestine. Conventional diagnostic methods, such as push enteroscopy, small-bowel follow-through, radionuclide scanning, and angiography, each exhibit inherent limitations. Double balloon enteroscopy (DBE) was designed specifically to evaluate the entire small bowel...

Gastric heterotopia of the intestinal tract can have a diverse clinicopathologic presentation, resulting in a diagnostic dilemma. We present a series of four cases, two male and two female patients with age range of 31-82 year, found in the duodenum, jejunum, and transverse colon. The most common and rather unusual clinical presentation was iron deficiency anemia, seen in three cases, while one patient presented with abdominal pain. Endoscopically two cases were visualized as pedunculated polyps and two as sessile/plaques like lesions...

Background/Aims: Because of the national screening program for colorectal carcinoma in The Netherlands, the number of colonoscopies has increased. In case of incomplete colonoscopy, computed tomography colonography (CTC) and double-balloon colonoscopy (DBc) are alternative options. This study evaluated cecal intubation rate and pathology detection rate in the previously unexplored part of the colon, complication rate of DBc, and CTC results after incomplete colonoscopy. Methods: Retrospective observational study in a tertiary referral hospital regarding DBc and CTC reports from cases with incomplete colonoscopy...

INTRODUCTION: Endoscopic Polypectomy In Clinic (EPIC) is a recently described deescalated form of endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) performed in the outpatient clinic for patients with chronic rhinosinusitis with polyps (CRSwNP). The quality of life benefit of EPIC in comparison to ESS is not known. The purpose of this study was to determine if the disease specific quality of life measured with the SNOT-22 attained with EPIC is similar to that attained with ESS for patients with CRSwNP. METHODS: A multi-institutional observational case-control study was performed to evaluate quality of life improvement in patients treated with ESS and EPIC for CRSwNP with a 3 month follow-up...

PUPRPOSE: Benign polyps that are technically challenging and unsafe to remove via polypectomy are known as complex polyps. Concerns regarding safety and completeness of resection dictate they undergo advanced endoscopic techniques, such as endoscopic mucosal resection or surgery. We provide a comprehensive overview of complex polyps and current treatment options. METHODS: A review of the English literature was conducted to identifyarticles describing the management of complex polyps of the colon and rectum...

Several reports discussed colonoscopic surveillance after polypectomy and endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) for colorectal polyps, but only a few reports focused on prognostic analyses, and none involved metachronous neoplasia after colorectal endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD). We conducted the present study to assess the risk of adenoma recurrence requiring endoscopic treatment, and to establish appropriate post-ESD colonoscopic surveillance. We enrolled 116 patients who had undergone colorectal ESD at Okayama University Hospital between February 2008 and July 2014 and had been followed-up >12 months...

In the United States, colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second-leading cause of cancer-related deaths. The most effective strategy for prevention of CRC is to screen for and remove precancerous polyps. There are various ways to screen for CRC. In the United States, the most common method is colonoscopy. Polyps are classified primarily through pathology. Size is the primary risk factor for malignancy. In general, the bigger the polyp, the greater the risk for malignancy. There are 3 basic options for removal: standard polypectomy; advanced resection techniques, known as endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) and endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD); and surgical removal...

BACKGROUND: Hiatal hernias are common. In some reports, hiatal hernias have been implicated in causing dyspnea, syncope, and heart failure. CASE PRESENTATION: An 82-year-old woman with a hiatal hernia was admitted to our hospital because she had experienced postprandial syncope during the last few years. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed a large hiatal hernia and a pedunculated polyp of the stomach antrum that fit into the pylorus. An upper gastrointestinal contrast study showed that the entire stomach had relocated to the thoracic cavity and that the body of the stomach was located above the fundus, resulting in a so-called upside-down stomach...

OBJECTIVES: Although large polyps are known to harbor more advanced neoplasia than small polyps, the extent of the relationship between size and type is not fully known. The study aim was to establish benchmarks for the prevalence of different histologic polyp types among varying size categories. METHODS: The Miraca Life Sciences Database is an electronic repository of histopathologic patient records from private practices throughout the United States. We extracted the records of 483,998 unique patients who underwent colonoscopy with polypectomy between January 2008 and December 2014...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Esthesioneuroblastoma is a neuroectodermal tumor that commonly arises in the nasal cavity olfactory recess and, when isolated to the intranasal cavity, can be indistinguishable from benign processes. Because lesional aggressiveness requires a more invasive operation for resection than polypectomy, patients with isolated intranasal lesions were studied to define distinguishing CT characteristics. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients with intranasal esthesioneuroblastoma and controls without esthesioneuroblastoma with olfactory recess involvement were identified by using a report search tool...

Gastrointestinal (GI) schwannoma is one of the rarest tumors of the GI tract. We herein describe the case of a 70-year-old female patient who presented for surveillance colonoscopy. The examination detected a 1-cm polyp that was removed by snare cautery polypectomy. Immune and histochemical staining revealed spindle cells that were positive for S-100 and vimentin, but negative for CD34 and smooth muscle actin, consistent with GI schwannoma. This case is noteworthy as GI schwannomas usually present in the stomach, making the finding of a colonic schwannoma of clinical interest...
