Background and study aims : Capsule endoscopy (CE) is invaluable for minimally invasive endoscopy of the gastrointestinal tract; however, several technological limitations remain including lack of reliable lesion localization. We present an approach to 3D reconstruction and localization using visual information from 2D CE images. Patients and methods : Colored thumbtacks were secured in rows to the internal wall of a LifeLike bowel model. A PillCam SB3 was calibrated and navigated linearly through the lumen by a high-precision robotic arm...

AIM: To compare the findings and completion rate of PillCam® SB2 and SB3. METHODS: This was a retrospective single-center study that included 357 consecutive small bowel capsule endoscopies (SBCE), 173 SB2 and 184 SB3. The data collected included age, gender, capsule type (PillCam® SB2 or SB3), quality of bowel preparation, completion of the examination, gastric and small bowel transit time, small bowel findings, findings in segments other than the small bowel and the detection of specific anatomical markers, such as the Z line and papilla...

Since it was introduced 17 years ago, capsule endoscopy has become an important diagnostic tool for the small bowel. Three generations of the original small bowel capsule have been developed since (PillCam SB3, Medtronic, USA), and four competitors were introduced for the small bowel. A non-video patency capsule (Agile patency capsule, Medtronic, USA) was also developed, in order to confirm patency and thus avoid retention in the GI tract. Moreover, capsules viewing other organs of the body (esophagus, colon) as well as three different magnetic guided capsules that visualize the stomach as good as optical endoscopy (OE) have been developed...

BACKGROUND: Small bowel (SB) capsule endoscopy (CE) studies provide data on both gastric and SB transit times (GTT and SBTT, respectively). AIMS: This study aimed to evaluate the influence of demographic and clinical parameters on the GTT and SBTT. Transit times for two generations of capsules (Pillcam SB2 and SB3) were also compared. METHODS: Consecutive adult patients undergoing CE were included. GTT, SBTT, and cecum arrival rates were calculated and correlated to demographics and clinical characteristics...

Since its emergence in 2000, small bowel capsule endoscopy (SBCE) has assumed a pivotal role as an investigation method for small bowel diseases. The PillCam(®) SB2-ex offers 12 h of battery time, 4 more than the previous version (SB2). Rahman et al recently found that the PillCam(®) SB2-ex has a significantly increased completion rate, although without higher diagnostic yield, compared with the SB2. We would like to discuss these somewhat surprising results and the new potentialities of the PillCam(®) SB3 regarding the diagnostic yield of small bowel studies...
