Background and Aims Since 2008, a plethora of research studies has compared the efficacy of water-assisted (aided) colonoscopy (WAC) and underwater resection (UWR) of colorectal lesions with standard colonoscopy. We reviewed and graded the research evidence with potential clinical application. We conducted a modified Delphi consensus among experienced colonoscopists on definitions and practice of water immersion (WI), water exchange (WE), and UWR. Methods Major databases were searched to obtain ...

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-...
Background and study aims The standard method for obtaining samples during endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) is fine-needle aspiration (FNA), the accuracy of which can be affected by the presence of a cytopathologist in endoscopy room (rapid on-site evaluation [ROSE]). With the introduction of fine-needle biopsy (FNB), macroscopic on-site evaluation (MOSE) of a acquired specimen has been proposed. Only a few studies have evaluated the role of MOSE and in all except one, a 19G needle was used. Our...

AIMS Estimates on miss-rates for upper gastrointestinal neoplasia (UGIN) rely on registry data or old studies. Quality assurance programs for upper-GI endoscopy are not fully established due to the lack of the infrastructure to measure endoscopists' competence. We aimed at assessing endoscopists' accuracy for the recognition of UGIN exploiting the framework of Artificial Intelligence (AI) validation studies. METHODS Literature search among databases (PubMed/MEDLINE, EMBASE, Scopus) up to August ...
OBJECTIVE patients presenting with melena and nondiagnostic esophagogastroduodenoscopy are usually investigated with colonoscopy and if negative, with small bowel capsule endoscopy. In this pilot study, we tested feasibility and performance of panenteric capsule endoscopy (PCE) in patients presenting with melena and negative esophagogastroduodenoscopy. METHODS Between January and December 2018, consecutive patients presenting with melena, clinically significant bleeding and negative esophagogast...

Background and Aims An adequate bowel cleansing is critical to assure quality and safety of colonoscopy. A novel 1L-PEG plus ascorbate(PEG+ASC) regimen was previously validated against low-volume regimens, but it was never compared with high-volume regimens. Methods In a Phase IV study, patients undergoing colonoscopy were randomized 1:1 to receive split-dose 1L PEG+ASC or a split-dose 4L PEG-based regimen in 5 Italian centers. Preparation was assessed with the Boston Bowel Preparation Scale (BB...
Background: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality among patients with cirrhosis. The risk of HCC recurrence after a complete response among patients treated with direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) has not been fully elucidated yet. Aim: To assess the risk of HCC recurrence after DAA therapy for hepatitis C virus (HCV). Methods: A systematic review across PubMed, Scopus and Scholar up to November 2020, including full-text studies that assessed the pattern of HCC ...

BACKGROUND One of the aims of the European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) is to encourage high quality endoscopic research at a European level. In 2016, the ESGE research committee published a set of research priorities. As endoscopic research is flourishing, we aimed to review the literature and determine whether endoscopic research over the last 4 years had managed to address any of our previously published priorities. METHODS As the previously published priorities were grouped u...
