Patients with a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass may be challenging diagnostic and therapeutic dilemmas for gastroenterologists and endoscopists due to anatomic considerations. Pancreaticobiliary limb pathology is particularly difficult to diagnose from standard endoscopic approaches as it often requires double balloon enteroscopy. Percutaneous access and gastrostomy placement into the gastric remnant, however, is a commonly performed procedure by interventional radiology. This report describes the identification of duodenal perforation and Graham patch dehiscence in the pancreaticobiliary limb of a patient with a prior Roux-en-Y gastric bypass who had failed traditional endoscopic measures, using transgastric remnant interventional duodenoscopy and confirmed with methylene blue injection into a periduodenal abscess...

A 40-year-old Japanese man with abdominal pain was referred to our hospital. The patient had been diagnosed with Crohn's disease at the age of 21 years and had since then received treatment with mesalazine and had been advocated an elemental diet. About 30 months before his visit to the hospital, he had swallowed a patency capsule, the retention of which in the ileum was subsequently detected on abdominal ultrasonography. The patient was advised to undergo the evaluation of stenosis, but he refused further investigation at that time...

INTRODUCTION AND AIMS: Peutz-Jeghers syndrome is an autosomal dominant inherited pathology characterized by gastrointestinal hamartomatous polyps, predominantly in the small bowel, and pigmented mucocutaneous lesions. Guidelines suggest polypectomy with a balloon-assisted enteroscope when polyps are larger than 10mm. Complications in adults can be as high as 6.8%, but there is little information on pediatric populations. Our aim was to describe the safety and efficacy of polypectomy in a group of pediatric patients with Peutz-Jeghers syndrome using balloon-assisted enteroscopy...

The gastrointestinal tract is a common site for the occurrence of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). NHL with gastrointestinal lesions may lead to clinically relevant intestinal complications such as obstruction, perforation, and exsanguination during the course of the disease. Consequently, patients with NHL are often examined by means of upper and lower gastrointestinal endoscopy at the initial visit. There are no clear guidelines regarding which patients should undergo capsule endoscopy (CE) and balloon enteroscopy for detecting small intestinal lesions...

Background: Three device-assisted deep endoscopic platforms presently exist and are available for clinical use: double-balloon enteroscopy, single-balloon enteroscopy (SBE), and spiral enteroscopy (SE). In a retrospective study, SE was associated with a greater depth of maximal insertion (DMI) with similar diagnostic yields and procedure time as compared with SBE. Aims: This was a prospective, randomized comparison of SE and SBE with respect to DMI, diagnostic yield, procedure time, and rate of adverse events...

BACKGROUND: Obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (OGIB) is a common but embarrassing problem for gastroenterologists. Most bleeding lesions associated with OGIB are present in the small intestine and sometimes cannot be identified due to the difficulty associated with physical accessibility. Capsule endoscopy (CE) and double-balloon enteroscopy (DBE) have enabled in the process of diagnosing and have evolved to become approaches to treating OGIB. SUMMARY: CE is a minimally invasive procedure and has a high diagnostic yield in patients with OGIB...

BACKGROUND: Small bowel adenocarcinoma (SBA) is rare despite the fact that the small bowel represents the longest part and has the largest surface of all alimentary tract sections. Its incidence is 50-fold lower than that of colorectal carcinoma. It is often diagnosed at an advanced stage due to atypical and late symptoms, its low index of suspicion, difficult endoscopic access and poor detection by radiological imaging, resulting in impaired outcome. Due to its rarity and being molecularly a unique intestinal cancer, data regarding its optimal management are relatively sparse...

Pyogenic granuloma is a benign vascular lesion, uncommon in the gastrointestinal tract, and extremely rare in the small bowel. The diagnosis can be challenging prior to surgery, because of its unusual endoscopic appearance.We present a case of pyogenic granuloma of the jejunum diagnosed by capsule endoscopy and double-balloon enteroscopy and successfully managed by surgical resection.

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic retrograde cholangiography using a short double-balloon endoscope (DB-ERC) is a promising minimally-invasive method for accessing hepaticojejunostomy (HJ) anastomosis in patients with surgically altered anatomy. We aimed to evaluate the immediate and long-term outcomes of balloon dilatation for benign HJ anastomotic stricture (HJAS) in patients who had previously undergone Whipple's procedure using a DB-ERC. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective analysis of 46 patients who underwent balloon dilatation alone with a DB-ERC for benign HJAS between November 2008 and November 2014...

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...

An 18-year-old man presented after undergoing multiple investigations for abdominal pain. Retrograde double-balloon enteroscopy showed a protruding red lesion in the ileum with small ulcers, approximately 75 cm proximal to the ileocecal valve, resulting in an intussusception. An inverted Meckel's diverticulum was strongly suspected. Pressure was applied to the protruding lesion using contrast medium injection after wedging the lumen with a balloon. The intussusception partially reduced, avoiding the need for emergent surgery...

BACKGROUND: Rapid weight loss after bariatric surgery is associated with a high prevalence of gallstone formation. In laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGBP), the bypassed segment is not readily available for endoscopic or radiographic examination. We propose a laparoscopic Janeway gastrostomy for secondary access to excluded structures in bariatric centers with no mandatory technical equipment in endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), double-balloon ERCP or spiral enteroscopy...
