Objective Colon capsule endoscopy (CCE) has shown promise for colorectal neoplasia detection compared with optical colonoscopy (OC), but has not been compared with other screening tests in average risk screening patients. Design Patients 50 to 75 years of age (African Americans, 45–75 years) were randomised to CCE or CT colonography (CTC) and subsequent blinded OC. The primary endpoint was diagnostic yield of polyps ≥6 mm with CCE or CTC. Secondary endpoints included accuracy for size and histol...

Colon capsule endoscopy as an alternative to colonoscopy for the diagnosis of colonic disease may serve as a less invasive and more tolerable investigation for patients. Our aim was to examine patient-reported outcomes for colon capsule endoscopy compared to conventional optical colonoscopy including preference of investigation modality, tolerability and adverse events. A systematic literature search was conducted in Web of Science, PubMed and Embase. Search results were thoroughly screened for ...
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Small bowel capsule endoscopy (SBCE) does not reach the cecum within the battery lifetime in approximately 15-35% of patients. Incomplete examinations result in diagnostic delays and increase the economic burden. To date, risk factors for incomplete examinations have been described with contradictory results. The aims of this study were to analyze rate and identify risk factors for incomplete examinations, excluding capsule retentions, in a large cohort of patients. METHODS D...
Abstract null null Background null Capsule endoscopy (SBCE) has developed a relevant role in patients with established Crohn's Disease (CD). However, evaluation of the impact in clinical management has been scarce. null null null Aims null To evaluate therapeutic impact of SBCE in an 11-year real-life cohort of known CD patients. null null null Methods null Retrospective single center study including all patients with established CD submitted to SBCE procedure from 01/01/2008 to 31/12/2019. Pate...
We present the case of an 82-year-old man with a medical history of hypertension, dyslipidemia, diabetes mellitus, chronic renal failure, ischemic heart disease and iron deficiency anemia. He was under therapy with hydralazine, furosemide, amlodipine, valsartan, nitroglycerin patches, bisoprolol, omeprazole, doxazosin, human insulin and oral iron. The patient presented at our Institution with melena. Initial gastroscopy showed fresh blood and a gastric angiodysplasia that was treated with argon ...

Background We aimed to document international practices in small-bowel capsule endoscopy (SBCE), measuring adherence to European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) technical and clinical recommendations. null null null null Methods Participants reached through the ESGE contact list completed a 52-item web-based survey. null null null null Results 217 responded from 47 countries (176 and 41, respectively, from countries with or without a national society affiliated to ESGE). Of responde...

Objective null Despite significant progresses in imaging and pathological evaluation, early differentiation between benign and malignant biliary strictures remains challenging. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is used to investigate biliary strictures, enabling the collection of bile. We tested the diagnostic potential of next-generation sequencing (NGS) mutational analysis of bile cell-free DNA (cfDNA). null Design null A prospective cohort of patients with suspicious bilia...
In recent years, panintestinal capsule endoscopy (PCE) with double-headed capsules has been used to perform complete, single-sitting exploration of both small bowel and colon in different clinical conditions. Double-headed capsules for colonic examination (CCE) have been exploited first in this setting, followed by newer generations of capsules (i.e. PillCam Crohn, PCC) specifically engineered for this purpose. The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of PCE in the form of a systema...

MAIN RECOMMENDATIONS 1. ESGE/ESGAR recommend computed tomographic colonography (CTC) as the radiological examination of choice for the diagnosis of colorectal neoplasia. Strong recommendation, high quality evidence. ESGE/ESGAR do not recommend barium enema in this setting. Strong recommendation, high quality evidence.2. ESGE/ESGAR recommend CTC, preferably the same or next day, if colonoscopy is incomplete. The timing depends on an interdisciplinary decision including endoscopic and radiological...
