1: ESGE recommends that the initial assessment of patients presenting with acute lower gastrointestinal bleeding should include: a history of co-morbidities and medications that promote bleeding; hemodynamic parameters; physical examination (including digital rectal examination); and laboratory markers. A risk score can be used to aid, but should not replace, clinician judgment.Strong recommendation, low quality evidence. 2 : ESGE recommends that, in patients presenting with a self-limited bleed...

OBJECTIVES Previous meta-analysis including nonrandomized studies showed marginal benefit of underwater endoscopic mucosal resection(U-EMR) compared to conventional EMR(C-EMR) in terms of polypectomy outcomes. We evaluated U-EMR compared to C-EMR in the treatment of colorectal polyps with respect to effectiveness and safety by analyzing only randomized controlled trials(RCTs). MATERIAL AND METHODS PubMed and Cochrane Library databases were searched for RCTs published until 11/2020, evaluating U-...

A 44-year-old woman underwent sleeve gastrectomy, which was complicated by a leak. She was treated with two sessions of endoscopic internal drainage using plastic double-pigtail stents. Her clinical evolution was favorable, but four months after the initial stent placement, she became symptomatic, and a gastrobronchial fistula with the proximal end of the stents invading the diaphragm was diagnosed. She was treated with antibiotics, plastic stents were removed, and a partially covered metallic e...

Post-sleeve gastrectomy (SG) stenoses occur in about 5% of cases. Hydrostatic dilation (HD) and pneumatic dilation (PD) have been proposed as treatments, but efficacy data remain scarce. Objective is to describe long-term efficacy and safety of HD and PD. This retrospective study in a referral endoscopy center included patients with symptomatic post-SG stenosis treated with endoscopic balloon dilation (EBD). Stenosis was defined as “organic” if luminal narrowing was evident, “functional” for a d...
