BACKGROUND: The most concerning complication of video capsule endoscopy (VCE) is capsule retention (CR) in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract although clinical outcome and management of patients with CR are still uncertain in a large single center material. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this retrospective study was to investigate incidence, causes, risk factors, management and clinical outcomes of CR in a large single center between 2001 and 2011. RESULTS: 2401 consecutive small-bowel (SB) VCEs were performed...

INTRODUCTION: Gastrointestinal leiomyomas are often clinically silent until they bleed or grow large enough to cause local mass effect. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We report the unique case of an otherwise healthy 69-year-old male who developed a small bowel obstruction secondary to a mobile small intestinal leiomyoma. During initial evaluation, computed tomography did not demonstrate the cause of obstruction. Because of worsening clinical status with conservative management, the patient required emergency laparotomy...

The balloon-assisted enteroscope has been regarded as the standard device for direct visualization of deep small bowels and allows for the diagnosis and treatment of small bowel disease. At the beginning, its application was focused on the diagnosis of obscure gastrointestinal bleeding, inflammatory bowel disease, and small bowel tumor. However, the indications are being expanded to various therapeutic procedures, not only confined to bleeding control. With the expansion of the indications, the need to perform enteroscopy effectively and safely is increasing...

INTRODUCTION: Meckel's diverticulum (MD) commonly presents as gastrointestinal bleeding in the pediatric population and intestinal obstruction in adults. There is no consensus for surgical excision of an incidentally diagnosed MD. We present a hitherto unreported vascular cause of intestinal gangrene due to MD. CASE PRESENTATION: A 16year old boy was referred as an acute abdomen for tertiary hospital management. Clinical examination and CT suggested small bowel obstruction and emergency laparotomy was performed...

Rationale: The objective of this autopsy study was to determine whether abnormal gastrointestinal vascularity develops during continuous-flow LVAD support. Objective: Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) support causes pathologic degradation of von Willebrand factor (vWF) and bleeding from gastrointestinal angiodysplasia at an alarming rate. It has been speculated that LVAD support, itself may cause angiodysplasia. The relationship to abnormal vWF metabolism is unknown. We tested the hypothesis that abnormal gastrointestinal vascularity develops during continuous-flow LVAD support...

OBJECTIVE: Most of the ovarian cancers are diagnosed at advanced stages. As peritoneal carcinomatosis increases, especially when it extends to the diaphragm and intestinal mesos, probability of obtaining complete cytoreduction is reduced. Complete cytoreduction (residue zero: R0) is one of the main factors affecting survival [1-3]. Here we present a novel technique of stripping the peritoneal surfaces as a part of cytoreductive surgery in such cases. METHODS: A 55year-old woman diagnosed with peritoneal carcinomatosis was considered appropriate for primary cytoreduction after assessment of her thorax-abdominopelvic tomography, which revealed resectable intra-abdominal disease...

OBJECTIVES: Although several drugs may induce small-bowel mucosal injuries, it is unclear whether these injuries contribute to overt small-bowel bleeding. This study was designed to evaluate the associations between drug use and small-bowel mucosal injury and between these mucosal injuries and overt bleeding in a disease-relevant population. METHODS: We retrospectively studied patients with suspected small-bowel diseases who underwent capsule endoscopy between 2010 and 2013...

Small gut volvulus with multiple Jejuno-ileal diverticulosis is an unusual pathology of the small intestine with a scarce number of cases reported so far. It usually goes unnoticed because it is often asymptomatic but complications like diverticulitis, perforation, bleeding or intestinal obstruction can occur in 10-30% of the cases. Mechanical obstruction, if it occurs, can be caused by adhesions or stenosis due to diverticulitis, intussusception at the site of the diverticulum and volvulus of the segment containing the diverticula...

Although rare, gastrointestinal posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) can lead to abdominal pain or gastrointestinal bleeding in patients with a history of solid-organ transplantation. We describe a case of isolated gastrointestinal PTLD in a patient who presented with acute on chronic iron deficiency anemia 26 years after heart transplant. A comprehensive endoscopic evaluation with video capsule endoscopy and small bowel enteroscopy revealed a large cratered ulceration in the small bowel with abnormal mucosal changes, which led to the diagnosis of PTLD...

Small bowel bleeding should be considered in patients with overt or occult gastrointestinal hemorrhage after normal upper and lower endoscopic examination. Angiodysplasia appearing as multiple flat vascular tufts is the most common cause of small bowel bleeding in patients over 40 years old. Polypoid angiodysplasia, however, is extremely rare. This report illustrates a unique case of solitary polypoid angiodysplasia in the jejunum of an adult with chronic kidney disease, who presented with an occult gastrointestinal bleed...

A 54-year old male liver transplant recipient with Roux-en-Y choledochojejunostomy was admitted for symptomatic anemia. Despite endoscopies and a bleeding scan, active bleeding was not visualized. Angiography and abdominal computed tomography demonstrated possible jejunal varices at the choledochojejunal anastomosis. Double-balloon enteroscopy demonstrated varices with overlying clots in the Roux limb at the anastomosis. Due to the extensive loop formation and unstable position of the endoscope, therapeutic intervention could not be performed...

INTRODUCTION: Gastric bezoars are a rare condition associated with situations of gastric dysmotility and prior gastric surgery, though sometimes they can present without any risk factor. We describe the first successful treatment in medical literature of a large gastric bezoar in the outpatient setting through endoscopic fragmentation. CASE PRESENTATION: A 76-year-old man was referred to our outpatient endoscopy clinic because of dyspepsia and epigastric pain. Upper GI endoscopy with a standard endoscope revealed a 10-cm-diameter gastric phytobezoar with necrotic pressure ulcer of the angulus...

Lipoma in the alimentary tract is a rare entity, it can usually be found in the subcutaneous tissue. Generally, lipomas are asymptomatic. Gastrointestinal lipoma must be removed only in case of bleeding or obstruction. We report 3 successfully operated cases of gastrointestinal lipomas: one duodenal (a 4 cm in diameter lipoma was enucleated from the bulb), one in the small bowel (ileal lipoma causing intususception; due to the unusual masroscopical appearance, segmental resection was performed), and one in the large bowel (colonic lipoma located at 47 cm from the anus, causing intermittent obstruction was remowed by colotomy)...

BACKGROUND: Gastrointestinal angiodysplasias (GIAD) are commonly diagnosed in the small bowel but can be located in other areas of the gastrointestinal tract. About half of patients diagnosed with GIAD have more than 1 lesion and 20% of patients have GIAD in both the small bowel and a source outside of the small bowel (nonisolated to small bowel GIAD or NISGIAD). The remaining patients with GIAD have lesions isolated to the small bowel (ISGIAD). Complications including rebleeding, hospitalization and mortality rates have not been previously analyzed between these 2 groups...

Gastrointestinal amyloidosis (GIA), a protein deposition disorder, represents a complex common pathway that encompasses multiple etiologies and presentations. It represents a significant diagnostic and treatment challenge. The disease results from the deposition of insoluble extracellular protein fragments that have been rendered resistant to digestion. GIA can be acquired or genetic, and most commonly results from chronic inflammatory disorders (AA amyloidosis), hematologic malignancy (AL amyloidosis), and end-stage renal disease (Beta-2 amyloidosis)...

Among the various diagnostic modalities for small bowel hemangioma, video capsule endoscopy (VCE) and double-balloon enteroscopy (DBE) can be recommended as part of the work-up in patients with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (OGIB). DBE is superior to VCE in the accuracy of diagnosis and therapeutic potential, while in most cases total enteroscopy cannot be achieved through only the antegrade or retrograde DBE procedures. As treatment for small bowel bleeding, especially spout bleeding, localization of the lesion for the decision of DBE insertion facilitates early treatment, such as endoscopic hemostatic clipping, allowing patients to avoid useless transfusion and the worsening of their disease into life-threatening status...

Diverticular bleeding of the small bowel is rare and occurs primarily in adults aged more than 60 years. In younger adults, Meckel's diverticulum, a true diverticulum that congenitally occurs in the distal ileum, is the most common cause of diverticular bleeding of the small bowel. Unlike Meckel's diverticula, other kinds of small bowel diverticula are not congenital and their incidence is related to age. Furthermore, congenital true diverticular bleeding of the jejunum in adults is very rare. We report the case of a 24-year-old man with subepithelial tumor-like lesion accompanied with obscure overt gastrointestinal bleeding (OOGIB)...

The incidence of small bowel lymphoma (SBL) is increasing worldwide. In contrast to resectable SBL, the treatment of unresectable SBL is still contentious. Here, we report a case of unresectable SBL that was treated by laparoscopic exclusion of the affected intestine before systemic chemotherapy was administered. An 84-year-old man was diagnosed with primary SBL involving extranodal dissemination. The patient received prophylactic surgery, namely exclusion of the affected intestine. This therapy diminishes well-known and life-threatening complications, such as perforation, bleeding, and obstruction, which may still occur after chemotherapy, and it makes the administration of chemotherapy safer...
