We present a rare case of giant endobronchial hamartoma coexisting with lung atelectasis for more than 3 years. The small specimen initially biopsied via bronchoscope did not reveal tissue features, but some features were suspicious for squamous cell carcinoma. The lesion was removed completely using snare electrocautery combined with argon plasma coagulation via flexible fiberoptic bronchoscopy. The patient made a satisfactory recovery, and a pathological diagnosis was made. This could be a useful option in selected endobronchial tumors...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Due to previous manipulation or submucosal invasion, GI lesions referred for endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) frequently have flat areas of visible tissue that cannot be snared. Current methods for treating residual tissue may lead to incomplete eradication or not allow complete tissue sampling for histologic evaluation. Our aim is to describe dissection-enabled scaffold-assisted resection (DeSCAR), a new technique combining circumferential ESD with EMR for removal of superficial non-lifting or residual "islands" with suspected submucosal involvement/fibrosis...

A 65-year-old man presented with obstructive pneumonia due to squamous cell carcinoma of the lung, which invaded the right main bronchus. Argon plasma coagulation was performed, which reduced his symptoms. Right pneumonectomy was performed after preoperative chemotherapy; the pathological diagnosis was T3N1M0 Stage IIIA. Fifteen months after surgery, he presented with bloody sputum. Bronchoscopy showed multiple endotracheal tumors, and a pathological examination revealed squamous cell carcinoma; the same histology as the primary lung cancer...

A small proportion of gastrointestinal angiodysplasia bleeding leads to chronic blood cell transfusion dependency. There are no guidelines supporting decision-making among various treatments in patients with gastrointestinal angiodysplasia bleeding. When endoscopic argon plasma coagulation is ineffective, the angiogenesis inhibitors thalidomide and octreotide can be considered. We describe a 77-year-old woman who had side effects of these angiogenesis inhibitors, which caused her to have continued bleeding...

Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is the most commonly performed bariatric procedure. Despite its high efficacy, some patients regain part of their lost weight. Several endoscopic therapies have been introduced as alternatives to treat weight regain, but most of the articles are relatively small with unclear long-term data. To systematically assess the efficacy of endoscopic therapies for weight regain after RYGB. We searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, Scopus, Web of Science, Cochrane, OVID, CINAHL/EBSCo, LILACS/Bireme, and gray literature...

BACKGROUND: Nonthermal atmospheric pressure plasma (NTAPP) has recently received attention as a novel tool in medicine. It is thought that plasma components yield plasma effects such as sterilization, blood coagulation, and wound healing. These effects are produced without thermal damage. We investigated the blood coagulation effect of NTAPP by using a multigas plasma jet. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Multigas plasma jets can generate NTAPP by several gas species. In this study, argon, oxygen, helium, nitrogen, mock air, and carbon dioxide were used to generate NTAPP, and blood coagulation times were compared with each plasma-treated sample...

BACKGROUND: The development of central airway obstruction during malignant diseases is an important cause of morbidity and mortality. Endobronchial therapies can decrease the patient's symptoms and improve quality of life. Here, we compare airway recanalization methods: argon plasma coagulation with mechanical tumor resection (APC + MTR) and cryorecanalization (CR efficiency, complications, restenosis rate, and time to restenosis) in patients with malignant exophytic endobronchial airway obstruction...

BACKGROUND: Benign central airway tumors are very rare diseases. Their unspecific symptoms are responsible for late diagnosis. Endoscopic interventions with different techniques and tools are widely used for their treatment. However, in certain cases interventional endoscopy might be unsuccessful and therefore other methods such as high-dose-rate brachytherapy could be a therapeutic option. CASE PRESENTATION: A 76-year-old white German woman was referred to our clinic for an endoscopic treatment of a recurrent granulation polyp in her left main bronchus...

A 47-year-old patient presented from outside the hospital for evaluation of iron deficiency anemia (IDA). The endoscopic workup suggested a gastric antral subepithelial lesion with an overlying arteriovenous malformation (AVM). Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) revealed the lesion to be a lipoma. Given the patient's anemia and blood transfusion requirements, the AVM was treated with argon plasma coagulation (APC). During this treatment, desiccation of fat was noted with a significant decrease in the size of the subepithelial lesion (the gastric lipoma)...

Gastric adenoma (dysplasia) is a precancerous lesion. Therefore, managements of gastric adenomas are important for preventing the development of gastric cancers and for detecting gastric cancers at earlier stages. The Vienna classification divides gastric adenomas into two categories: high-grade dysplasia and low-grade dysplasia. Generally, endoscopic resection is performed for adenoma with high-grade dysplasia due to the coexistence of carcinoma and the potential of progression to carcinomas. However, the treatments of adenoma with low-grade dysplasia remain controversial...

OBJECTIVES: Symptomatic cervical heterotopic gastric mucosa also addressed as cervical inlet patch (CIP) may present in varying shapes and causes symptoms of laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) like globus sensations, hoarseness and chronic cough. Unfortunately, argon plasma coagulation, standard treatment of small symptomatic CIP, is limited in large CIP mainly due to concerns of stricture formation. Therefore, we aimed to investigate radiofrequency ablation (RFA), a novel minimal-invasive ablation method, in the treatment of CIP focusing on large symptomatic patches...

Patients with Barrett's esophagus (BE)/columnar lined esophagus (CLE) and adenocarcinoma are increasing, in whom 0.61% BE/CLE would develop to adenocarcinoma. The prognosis of esophageal cancer is related to the tumor stage at diagnosis. To standardize the screening, diagnosis and therapy of BE and adenocarcinoma in China, 31 digestive diseases and digestive endoscopy experts and digestive histologists drafted the consensus on the basis of clinical experience and references. The consensus defined BE as a complication of gastroesophageal reflux disease...

The current standard-of-care treatment for patients with limited-stage small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) is concurrent chemoradiotherapy for local and systemic control. However, standard-of-care treatment strategies have not been established for those with limited-stage SCLC who have a history of thoracic radiotherapy due to concerns with complications associated with radiation overdose. A 37-year-old male developed an aspergilloma in the postoperative left thoracic space after he was treated with concurrent chemoradiotherapy for mediastinal type lung adenocarcionoma and subsequent left upper lobectomy for heterochronous dual adenocarcinoma...

Benign anastomotic strictures can occur in up to 22% of patients who undergo colonic or rectal resection. Traditionally, surgery was the preferred method of treatment, but, over time, endoscopic techniques, such as balloon dilation, have become the preferred modality. However, a high stricture recurrence rate of up to 18-20% and the increased risk of perforation due to uncontrolled stretching are its major drawbacks. Endoscopic electrocautery incision (EECI) allows for controlled mucosal incision in predetermined locations of stricture...
