BACKGROUND AND AIMS Endoscopic decompression is considered a first-line treatment for symptomatic pancreatic fluid collections (PFCs). A lumen-apposing metal stent (LAMS) with an electrocautery-enhanced delivery system [electrocautery-enhanced lumen-apposing metal stent (ELAMS)] may facilitate this procedure. This study evaluated the safety and efficacy of ELAMS in the management of symptomatic PFCs. PATIENTS AND METHODS A multicenter, nonblinded, prospective, Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-...

Abstract: Background & Aims Gastric per oral endoscopic pyloromyotomy (GPOEM) is a promising treatment for gastroparesis. There are few data on the long-term outcomes of this procedure. We investigated long-term outcomes of GPOEM treatment of patients with refractory gastroparesis. Methods We conducted a retrospective case-series study of all patients who underwent GPOEM for refractory gastroparesis at a single center (n=97), from June 2015 through March 2019; 90 patients had more than 3 months ...

Background and Aims: As on-call anesthesiologist administered propofol sedation (OAPS) is costly and not readily available in all endoscopy units, endoscopy nurse administered propofol sedation (NAPS) can be an effective alternative. This study aimed to compare the dosage of propofol used by NAPS versus OAPS, cardiopulmonary adverse events and recovery time in low risk patients undergoing outpatient elective colonoscopy. Methods: A retrospective propensity score-matched cohort study was conducte...

Background Fluoroscopy is often used during the endoscopic drainage of pancreatic-fluid collections (PFCs). An electrocautery-enhanced coaxial lumen-apposing, self-expanding metal stent (ELAMS) facilitates a single-step procedure and may avoid the need for fluoroscopy. This study compares the treatment outcomes using ELAMS with and without fluoroscopy. Methods Patients with PFCs who had cystogastrostomy from January 2014 to February 2017 were enrolled. Two groups were studied based on fluoroscop...
For management of endoscopy units during the worldwide coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak caused by the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 in Thailand, a working group of the Thai Association for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (TAGE) in collaboration with the Endoscopy Nurse Society (Thailand) (ENST) has developed the following recommendations for Thai doctors and medical personnel working in gastrointestinal endoscopy (GIE) units Upper and lower GIE is considered as an aerosol generating procedur...
