A uniform and comprehensive terminology is essential in the correct documentation of diagnostic or therapeutic endoscopic procedure. In the German-speaking world, the standard terminology available so far is based on a previous version published in 1999. Therefore, the German Society for Gastroenterology, Digestive and Metabolic Diseases (DGVS) has undergone a comprehensive revision and re-structuring of the terminology. This appeared mandatory due to various changes, new diagnoses and new endoscopic procedures...

Gastric diseases are very common in China, especially gastric cancer with a continuous high level of morbidity and mortality. As an important screening method of gastric diseases, magnetically-controlled-capsule-gastroscopy (MCCG) has already been widely used in medical institutions worldwide. Several clinical trials have already showed that MCCG has comparable accuracy in diagnosing gastric diseases compared with conventional gastroscopy. Furthermore, MCCG has the advantages of anesthesia free, no risks of cross infection, and excellent compliance...

An 80-year-old man was examined with esophagogastroduodenoscopy and colonoscopy because of digestive tract hemorrhage;however, no specific cause was found. Small intestinal capsule endoscopy revealed a reddish elevated lesion in the ileum. This lesion was also detected using double-balloon endoscopy as a 5-cm reddish elevated lesion covered with normal villous architecture in the 95-cm part of the Bauhin valve on the oral side. The lesion was laparoscopically resected and diagnosed as inverted Meckel's diverticulum based on pathological examination...

BACKGROUND: Infected necrotising pancreatitis is a potentially lethal disease and an indication for invasive intervention. The surgical step-up approach is the standard treatment. A promising alternative is the endoscopic step-up approach. We compared both approaches to see whether the endoscopic step-up approach was superior to the surgical step-up approach in terms of clinical and economic outcomes. METHODS: In this multicentre, randomised, superiority trial, we recruited adult patients with infected necrotising pancreatitis and an indication for invasive intervention from 19 hospitals in the Netherlands...

Cigarette smoking is a well-known risk factor of upper digestive diseases. Findings on alcohol's effect on these diseases are inconsistent and with the exception of its association with esophageal cancer, little is known about betel quid chewing. This study investigated the association between use of these three substances and upper digestive diseases. We collected data from 9,275 patients receiving upper endoscopies between April 2008 and December 2013. Polynomial regressions were used to analyze the association between risk factors and diseases of the esophagus, stomach and duodenum...

Lymphomas are solid tumors of the lymphatic system and these are divided into Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Non-Hodgkin tumors may originate from non-nodal tissues such as the gastrointestinal tract and they are considered primary when extranodal involvement is equal to or greater than 75% according to the nodal involvement. Extranodal gastrointestinal lymphomas represent 1% to 4% of tumors of the digestive tract, and 10 to 15% of all non-Hodgkin lymphomas. The stomach is the most common extranodal lymphomas site...

Dear Editor, We would like to clarify certain points in the article by C. Dolz et al. entitled "Informed consent in digestive endoscopy - Patient information, endoscopist protection", more specifically regarding the section "Obesity treatments". First, we want to congratulate the authors for their highly relevant yearlong research of the medico-legal aspects of Spanish endoscopy and for sharing their knowledge with endoscopists on a national level. With regard to the endoscopic management of obesity, we consider that the informed consent process should be even more comprehensive than that with other endoscopic techniques...

BACKGROUND: Dyspepsia is a symptom complex rather than a specific disease entity. It can be caused by both organic and functional gastrointestinal (GI) disorders. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD) though a common digestive disorder worldwide is scarcely reported in Nigeria. The aim of this study is to determine the pattern of presentation of GORD among patients with dyspepsia. METHODS: One hundred and seventy dyspeptic patients were recruited consecutively as they were referred to the Gastroenterology Unit of Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital for upper GI endoscopy...

INTRODUCTION: Duodenal obstructions caused by congenital anatomic abnormalities are rare in adults. Several patients in whom the duodenal obstruction was caused by a congenital duodenal diaphragm have been described. The duodenal obstruction in the patient presented herein was caused by a transverse septum, which has not been previously reported. A transverse septum is usually observed in the vagina; those involving the digestive tract have been rarely observed. CASE PRESENTATION: We herein report a case involving a 69-year-old woman with a congenital duodenal transverse septum causing partial obstruction...

BACKGROUND: Abdominal interventions are usually contraindicated in patients with cirrhosis and portal hypertension because of increased morbidity and mortality. Decreasing portal pressure with transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) may improve patient outcomes. We report our experience with patients treated by neoadjuvant TIPS to identify those who would most benefit from this two-step procedure. PATIENTS AND METHODS: All patients treated by dedicated neoadjuvant TIPS between 2005 and March 2013 in two tertiary referral hospitals were included...

Henoch-Schonlein purpura (HSP) is an immune-mediated vasculitis. HSP presents with purple spots on the skin (purpura), arthralgia, digestive problems, and kidney injury. HSP is most commonly seen in children, and rarely presents in adults. The pathogenesis involves the deposition of immune complexes in small to medium size blood vessels which leads to necrosis and inflammation. Most patients recover after symptomatic treatment, while more severe cases are treated with steroids. We report a 28-year-old female patient who presented with two episodes of hematemesis, worsening abdominal pain, and bloody diarrhea...
