BACKGROUND Suspected small bowel bleeding (SSBB) is the main indication for videocapsule endoscopy (VCE) and double balloon enteroscopy (DBE). We assessed the impact of both modalities in a large cohort of SSBB patients in a European tertiary center. METHODS We retrospectively evaluated consecutive patients with SSBB undergoing VCE and/or DBE from March 2001 to July 2020. Demographic/clinical parameters, anticoagulant therapies, technical characteristics and adverse events were collected, as wel...

Background and Aims: Since the beginning of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, telemedicine has been supporting many patients with chronic diseases worldwide. However, data on celiac disease (CeD) nutritional and gastroenterological remote monitoring are scanty. The aims of our study were to verify patients' trust in telemedicine and to evaluate the feasibility of telemedicine in nutritional monitoring. Material and Methods: We used telemedicine in place of the scheduled but not p...

Background Small bowel capsule endoscopy (SBCE) has an established role in the management of refractory celiac disease (RCD) for the detection of complications. The aim of this study was to define the role of SBCE in the management of patients with RCD. Method Patients with histologically confirmed RCD who underwent successive SBCEs were recruited retrospectively from 2 tertiary centers. Results Sixty patients with RCD were included. The percentage extent of the affected small bowel (SB) mucosa ...

ABSTRACT Objective The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has spread across the world causing a dramatic number of infections and deaths. No data are available about the effects of an infection in patients affected by celiac disease (CD) in terms of the development of related symptoms and antibodies. We aimed to investigate the impact of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic in celiac patients. Design During a lockdown, the celiac patients living in the Milan area were contacted and interviewed about the development of COVI...

Background Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided biliary drainage is becoming an option for palliation of malignant biliary obstruction. Lumen-apposing metal stents (LAMS) are replacing self-expandable metal stents (SEMS). The aim of this meta-analysis was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of LAMS and SEMS for EUS-guided choledochoduodenostomy (EUS-CDS). Methods A meta-analysis was performed using PRISMA protocols. Electronic databases were searched for studies on EUS-CDS. The primary outcome was...

OBJECTIVE: SARS-CoV-2 outbreak is spreading worldwide. As a consequence of the new circumstances, almost all endoscopic units underwent in-depth reorganization involving patients' selection. We analyzed the efficacy of the newly adopted endoscopic triage. METHODS: In March 2020, we monitored endoscopies to evaluate the effects of the novel selective triage aimed to reduce the number of investigations and viral spread/contagions. Clinical-demographic data of the patients, indications, type of end...
