    Impact of Mucosal Inflammation on Risk of Colorectal Neoplasia in Patients with Ulcerative Colitis: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
    Long-standing ulcerative colitis is an established risk factor for colorectal neoplasia. A number of observational studies have suggested that evidence of mucosal inflammation (endoscopic or histologic) is associated with a greater risk for colorectal neoplasia than is mucosal healing. Our goal was to systematically analyze the risk of colorectal neoplasia in ulcerative colitis patients with ongoing mucosal inflammation to better inform surveillance strategies.

    Endoscopic Muscle Biopsy (EMB) of the Duodenum and Rectum: A Pilot Survival Study in a Porcine Model to Detect Myenteric Neurons
    Small bowel and colorectal muscle biopsies require a surgical approach. Advancing our understanding of the pathophysiology of motility disorders, such as functional bowel disorders, intestinal pseudo-obstruction and slow transit constipation, is hindered by our inability to non-invasively obtain muscularis propria (MP) for evaluation of multiple cell types, including myenteric neurons. The aims of this study were to determine (1) technical feasibility, reproducibility and safety of performing duodenal endoscopic muscle biopsy (dEMB) and rectal endoscopic muscle biopsy (rEMB) using a clip-assist technique; and (2) presence of myenteric neurons in tissue samples.

    Nitrous oxide cryotherapy for treatment of esophageal squamous cell neoplasia: initial multicenter international experience with a novel portable cryoballoon ablation system (with video)
    Early esophageal squamous cell neoplasia (ESCN) can be successfully treated by endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR), endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD), or radiofrequency ablation (RFA). A new portable, battery-powered cryotherapy system using nitrous oxide (cryoballoon focal ablation system (CbFAS) has been used for Barrett’s esophagus. It consists of a small hand-held device containing liquid nitrous oxide, which converts to gas within a low-pressure–compliant through-the-scope balloon and freezes targeted mucosa in contact with the balloon.

    Approaches for stricture prevention after esophageal endoscopic resection
    Endoscopic resection of extensive esophageal lesions has become more common as endoscopic resection techniques and equipment has developed. However, extensive esophageal endoscopic resections can cause postoperative esophageal strictures, which have a negative impact on the quality of life of patients. We aimed to review current treatments and innovative approaches to prevent esophageal strictures after widespread endoscopic resection of esophageal lesions.

    Radiofrequency ablation for the treatment of weight regain after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery
    Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery is an established modality for the treatment of morbid obesity. However, approximately one-quarter of patients experience weight regain after initially successful weight loss. Endoscopic therapy targeting the gastric remnant pouch represents a novel potential strategy to re-induce weight loss in this population. We performed a pilot trial of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of the gastric remnant pouch after RYGB to determine feasibility, safety and efficacy for weight loss.

    Role of dual red imaging to guide intravariceal sclerotherapy injection of esophageal varices (with videos)
    Dual red imaging (DRI) is a novel image-enhanced endoscopy technique that can increase the visibility and predict the depth of esophageal varices (EVs). The recurrence rate of EVs after endoscopic injection sclerotherapy (EIS) reportedly decreases by intravariceal injection of a sclerosant. We evaluated prospectively whether the EIS success rate was increased by DRI compared with the white light (WLI) mode.

    A comparative study of endoscopic surveillance in hereditary diffuse gastric cancer according to CDH1 mutation status
    Hereditary diffuse gastric cancer (HDGC) accounts for 1% of gastric cancer cases. For patients with a germline CDH1 mutation, risk-reducing gastrectomy is recommended. However, for those delaying surgery or families with no causative mutation identified, regular endoscopy is advised. This study aimed to determine the yield of signet ring cell carcinoma (SRCC) foci in individuals with a CDH1 pathogenic variant compared with those without and how this varies with successive endoscopies.

    Impact of avascular areas, as measured by contrast-enhanced harmonic EUS, on the accuracy of fine-needle aspiration for pancreatic adenocarcinoma
    Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) is used for the diagnosis of pancreatic adenocarcinoma, but sometimes the method results in a false negative. Occasionally, an avascular area may be observed within the pancreatic adenocarcinoma tumor during contrast-enhanced harmonic endoscopic ultrasonography (CH-EUS). The aim of this study was to evaluate whether the diagnostic sensitivity of EUS-FNA for pancreatic adenocarcinoma was affected by the presence of avascularity on CH-EUS.

    The 5D framework: a clinical primer for fecal microbiota transplantation to treat Clostridium difficile infection
    Clostridium difficile infection is the most common health care–associated infection in the United States. Recently, fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) has emerged as an effective and safe therapy for recurrent C difficile infection; however, despite rapid adoption there is no standardized clinical approach. Given the rapid adoption of FMT, in part because of stool banks, there is a need for a practical primer for clinicians to safely perform FMT. Accordingly, we aim to provide a simple approach entitled the 5D FMT framework to guide physicians.

    Pancreatic pseudocyst localized in the gastric wall after EUS-guided FNA of type 1 autoimmune pancreatitis
    A 67-year-old man with diffuse enlargement of the pancreas suspected to have type 1 autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) underwent EUS-guided FNA to confirm the pathologic diagnosis (A). FNA was performed through a transgastric approach, and 5 passes were made with a 21G needle with attention to avoid puncture of the main pancreatic duct. The pathologic result was consistent with AIP. Five days later, the patient was admitted to our hospital with abdominal pain and vomiting. A CT scan showed a newly developed 7 × 6 cm cystic mass in the gastric wall with no fluid collection in the retroperitoneal space (B, C).

    Hymenolepis nana infection detected by magnifying colonoscopy with narrow-band imaging (with video)
    A 29-year-old man with Crohn’s disease underwent colonoscopy because of postprandial abdominal pain without diarrhea. Remission of Crohn’s ileocolitis had been achieved by the administration of infliximab every 8 weeks. Colonoscopy revealed a thin white object (A), which looked like a small strand of white mucus. Magnifying endoscopy revealed slow movement (B), and narrow-band imaging (NBI) produced a clearer image (C; Video 1, available online at www.giejournal.org). Endoscopic removal of the tapeworm by biopsy forceps was performed.

    Diffuse gastric metastases from salivary duct carcinoma
    A 64-year-old man underwent a right parotidectomy for a parotid gland tumor. Histologic examination revealed poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma with lymph node metastases, and the tumor was diagnosed as salivary duct carcinoma (SDC). Adjuvant chemotherapy was performed for 8 months until CT revealed no residual lesions of SDC. Thirteen months after the surgery, he underwent surveillance EGD and was referred to our hospital for scrutiny of the gastric lesions. Under EGD, thickened gastric folds in the greater curvature of the gastric corpus were discontinuously and ambiguously identified (A), and the surface of these lesions was reddish and coarse (B).

    Hemorrhagic angiodysplasia of the digestive tract: pathogenesis, diagnosis, and management
    GI angiodysplasia (GIA) is an acquired vascular superficial lesion, which presents typically as a bright red, irregular, round, slightly elevated lesion. GIAs are often seen in patients aged >60 years and are mostly located in the colon (cecum and ascending colon). The cause and mechanisms of GIA have yet to be completely understood. Small-bowel GIAs often are diagnosed in the setting of obscure GI bleeding. In some cases, GIAs are associated with aortic stenosis, von Willebrand’s disease, chronic renal disease, and liver disease.

    Metachronous colon polyps in younger versus older adults: a case-control study
    The incidence of colorectal cancer in the United States has decreased substantially in individuals aged 50 and older. In contrast, it is increasing in young adults. The polyp characteristics on baseline and follow-up colonoscopy in young adults are not well characterized. We describe the polyp characteristics on baseline and follow-up colonoscopy in adults <40 years and determined factors associated with the occurrence of metachronous, advanced neoplasia or high-risk (HR) polyp features. We compared the occurrence of metachronous advanced neoplasia in young adults with those 50 years and older to assess whether postpolypectomy surveillance guidelines seem appropriate for polyp-bearing adults less than age 40 years.

    Use of a lumen-apposing metal stent to treat pyloric stenosis
    A 77-year-old woman with a 100 pack/year history of tobacco use presented to our center with failure to thrive, weight loss, and intolerance of oral intake. Chest, abdominal, and pelvic CT revealed multiple lung masses and liver metastases. Examination of a biopsy specimen from her lung mass revealed squamous cell carcinoma of the lung. A positron emission tomography scan did not show hypermetabolic activity at the pylorus. An EGD was performed to investigate her eating issues and revealed a high-grade stenosis of her pylorus with an overall benign appearance suggestive of scarring secondary to prior peptic ulcer disease (A).

    A study of the clinical utility of a 20-minute secretin-stimulated endoscopic pancreas function test and performance according to clinical variables
    Direct pancreas juice testing of bicarbonate, lipase, or trypsin after stimulation by secretin or cholecystokinin is used to determine exocrine function, a surrogate for diagnosing chronic pancreatitis (CP). Endoscopic pancreas function tests (ePFTs), where a peak bicarbonate concentration (PBC) ≄80 mEq/L in pancreas juice is considered normal, are now used more frequently. In this ePFT, aspirates start 35 minutes after secretin administration because pancreas output peaks 30 minutes after secretagogue administration.

    Impact of cap-assisted colonoscopy on detection of proximal colon adenomas: systematic review and meta-analysis
    Proximal colon adenomas can be missed during routine colonoscopy. Use of a cap or hood on the tip of the colonoscope has been shown to improve overall adenoma detection with variable rates. However, it has not been systematically evaluated for detection of proximal colon or right-sided adenomas where the cap may have maximum impact on adenoma detection rate (ADR). Our aim was to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate the impact of cap-assisted colonoscopy (CC) on right-sided ADRs (r-ADRs) compared with standard colonoscopy (SC).

    A 13-year-old boy presented with a body weight that was low for his age; he had experienced repeated vomiting episodes and acute pancreatitis of an unknown cause since he was 9 years old. When acute pancreatitis developed for the fifth time, CT of the abdomen revealed severe acute pancreatitis with a duodenum-within-duodenum configuration, indicating the second portion of a duodenal intussusception (A). Duodenal intussusception prevented the normal flow of pancreatic enzymes, which may have caused the acute pancreatitis.

    Thermo-sensitive isopentane aerification for mucosal lift during endoscopic resection in animal models (with video)
    Mucosal lift is critical for successful endoscopic treatment. Normal saline (NS) solution is widely used as the submucosal filler, but its short persistency restricts clinical endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD). In this study, thermo-sensitive isopentane was introduced for submucosal injection. With a boiling point at 27.8°C, liquid isopentane can be easily applied, and gasification inflation can provide great support for submucosal lifting at body temperature. The feasibility and efficiency of isopentane were evaluated in this study.

    Complex early Barrett’s neoplasia at 3 Western centers: European Barrett’s Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection Trial (E-BEST)
    Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is an effective technique to resect early Barrett’s neoplasia and has advantages over conventional EMR in that it enables en-bloc resection and accurate histopathologic analysis of cancer resection margins. However, its long learning curve and higher adverse event rate have tempered its uptake in the West. We aimed to analyze the safety and efficacy of ESD when used to resect complex Barrett’s neoplasia. The primary endpoint was the en-bloc and R0 resection rate.

    Oral administration of conditioned medium obtained from mesenchymal stem cell culture prevents subsequent stricture formation after esophageal submucosal dissection in pigs
    Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for esophageal cancer often causes postoperative stricture when more than three fourths of the circumference of the esophagus is dissected. Mesenchymal stem cells are a valuable cell source in regenerative medicine, and conditioned medium (CM) obtained from mesenchymal stem cells reportedly inhibits inflammation. In this study we evaluated whether CM could prevent esophageal stricture after ESD.

    Detectability of colorectal neoplastic lesions using a novel endoscopic system with blue laser imaging: a multicenter randomized controlled trial
    Most studies have not reported an improvement in the detection of adenomas with the use of image-enhanced colonoscopy methods, possibly because of the darkness of the images. To overcome this limitation, a new-generation endoscopic system has been developed. This system has 2 blue-laser imaging (BLI) observation modes. The BLI observation was set to BLI-bright mode to detect lesions. We aimed to evaluate the efficacy of BLI in detecting lesions.

    Molecular imaging of mucosal α4ÎČ7 integrin expression with the fluorescent anti-adhesion antibody vedolizumab in Crohn’s disease
    Molecular imaging is based on the use of fluorescent probes with specificity toward defined molecular targets and their visualization by endoscopic devices such as confocal laser endomicroscopy (CLE). Herein, we describe successful molecular imaging of the α4ÎČ7 integrin through CLE in Crohn’s disease (CD). Five patients with CD refractory to anti-tumor necrosis factor (TNF) therapy and with active mucosal inflammation, as shown by high-definition endoscopy, were studied (A). Before induction therapy with the anti-α4ÎČ7 antibody vedolizumab (VDZ), molecular imaging of α4ÎČ7 with fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC)–labeled VDZ allowed specific identification of α4ÎČ7 expressing mucosal cells with clear discrimination against FITC-IgG1 isotype control in 2 patients with CD responding to subsequent VDZ therapy (B).

    Comparison of FNA and fine-needle biopsy for EUS-guided sampling of suspected GI stromal tumors
    Subepithelial lesions are found in about 1% of all EGD procedures, and GI stromal tumors are a type of subepithelial lesion commonly encountered. Although the majority of subepithelial lesions are benign, GI stromal tumors have malignant potential, making a definitive diagnosis important. Currently, the criterion standard for the diagnosis of GI stromal tumors is EUS-directed FNA (EUS-FNA). The definitive diagnosis of GI stromal tumors relies on immunohistochemical staining, which depends on enough tissue being submitted to the pathologist.

    Endoscopic multiple biopsy and rapid diagnosis by in situ fixation and histopathologic processing
    Endoscopic forceps biopsy and fixation are laborious and prolong the procedure and anesthesia. Multiple biopsy overcomes these shortcomings with a single endoscope pass that cuts, like a needle biopsy, up to 25 biopsy samples of uniform size and depth during endoscope withdrawal. Biopsy specimens are collected in acquisition order and stored in a perforated plastic storage chamber within the perforated metal tip. The tip is cut off, immersed in fixative, and sent to pathology. A formatted log identifies each biopsy specimen by site and position.

    Stenosis after colorectal endoscopic submucosal dissection: When to expect, how to manage?
    Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) was developed in Japan for the en bloc removal of early gastrointestinal tract lesions.1-3 This technique is rapidly extending around the world, and it is now used for the removal of lesions inside the stomach, esophagus, small bowel, and large bowel.4-6 Although ESD has numerous advantages over traditional piecemeal EMR (eg, en bloc removal allows adequate histologic assessment of lateral and deep margins; ESD is associated with a high rate of curative resection and lower recurrence rates), ESD has a higher rate of immediate (bleeding, perforation) and delayed (bleeding, perforations, stenosis) adverse events compared with EMR.

    Blue laser imaging: A promising new kid on the block or another tool to increase detection of low-risk adenomas?
    The efficacy of colorectal cancer screening and surveillance programs relies heavily on the quality of the colonoscopy procedures. If premalignant lesions remain undetected during colonoscopy, the opportunity to prevent the future development of colorectal cancer by removing these lesions is missed. Subsequently, these missed lesions can develop into postcolonoscopy cancers (defined as cancers after a complete colonoscopy).1 In a systematic review published in 2006, the pooled miss rate of premalignant lesions in back-to-back colonoscopies was as high as 22%,2 underlining the necessity to improve polyp detection rates in colonoscopy.

    Is there a role for combined sclerotherapy and ligation in the endoscopic treatment of gastroesophageal varices?
    Patients with bleeding varices have outcomes that are worse than in patients with other nonmalignant sources of bleeding and engender trepidation in endoscopists. Gastric varices are a less-common source of bleeding than esophageal varices but have more severe bleeding and higher mortality. Many randomized trials inform our treatment of esophageal varices, but far fewer randomized trials are available regarding gastric varices. Furthermore, treatment recommendations vary based on the location of gastric varices.
