Endoscopic ultrasound measurements for detection of residual disease after neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy for esophageal cancer.

Endoscopy 2018 Nov 29. Epub 2018 Nov 29.

Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Erasmus MC University Medical Center, Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

Background:  Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) measurements of residual thickness and residual area have been suggested to correlate with histopathological residual tumor after neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (nCRT) for esophageal cancer. This study assessed the predictive value of EUS-based measurements using tumor thickness and tumor area before nCRT, and residual thickness and residual area 6 and 12 weeks after completion of nCRT for detection of residual disease.

Methods:  This was a substudy of the diagnostic multicenter preSANO trial. Read More

Forward-viewing echoendoscope versus standard echoendoscope for endoscopic ultrasound-guided tissue acquisition of solid lesions: a randomized, multicenter study.

Endoscopy 2018 Nov 29. Epub 2018 Nov 29.

Digestive Endoscopy Unit, Fondazione Policlinico Universitario Agostino Gemelli, IRCCS, Rome, Italy.

Background:  A forward-viewing linear (FVL) echoendoscope has been developed with the aim of overcoming some of the limitations of standard curved linear-array (CLA) echoendoscopes. There are no existing studies comparing the performance of the two echoendoscopes for endoscopic ultrasound-guided tissue acquisition (EUS-TA) of solid lesions other than subepithelial lesions.

Methods:  This was a prospective, multicenter, randomized trial with a noninferiority design comparing FVL vs. Read More

Computer-assisted diagnosis of early esophageal squamous cell carcinoma using narrow-band imaging magnifying endoscopy.

Endoscopy 2018 Nov 23. Epub 2018 Nov 23.

Department of Gastroenterology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Anhui Medical University, Hefei, China.

Efficacy of a paclitaxel-eluting biliary metal stent with sodium caprate in malignant biliary obstruction: a prospective randomized comparative study.

Endoscopy 2018 Nov 9. Epub 2018 Nov 9.

Department of Internal Medicine, Gangnam Severance Hospital, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, South Korea.

Backgrounds:  The placement of a self-expandable metal stent (SEMS) is widely used in patients with unresectable malignant biliary obstructions, but SEMSs are susceptible to occlusion by tumor ingrowth or overgrowth. The efficacy and safety of a novel paclitaxel-eluting biliary metal stent incorporating sodium caprate (MSCPM-III) were compared prospectively with those of a covered metal stent (CMS) in patients with malignant biliary obstructions.

Methods:  Patients with unresectable distal malignant biliary obstructions (n = 106) were prospectively enrolled in this study at multiple treatment centers. Read More

Diagnostic yield of magnetically assisted capsule endoscopy versus gastroscopy in recurrent and refractory iron deficiency anemia.

Endoscopy 2018 10 25. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

Academic Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, Sheffield, United Kingdom.

Background: Small-bowel capsule endoscopy is advocated and repeat upper gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy should be considered for evaluation of recurrent or refractory iron deficiency anemia (IDA). A new device that allows magnetic steering of the capsule around the stomach (magnetically assisted capsule endoscopy [MACE]), followed by passive small-bowel examination might satisfy both requirements in a single procedure.

Methods: In this prospective cohort study, MACE and esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) were performed in patients with recurrent or refractory IDA. Read More

Efficacy and safety of radiofrequency ablation of Barrett's esophagus in the absence of reimbursement: a multicenter prospective Belgian registry.

Endoscopy 2018 Oct 25. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, University Hospitals Leuven, KU Leuven, Belgium.

Background:  Radiofrequency ablation (RFA), combined with endoscopic resection, can be used as a primary treatment for low grade dysplasia, high grade dysplasia, and early esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) in Barrett's esophagus (BE). The aim of the Belgian RFA registry is to capture the real-life outcome of endoscopic therapy for BE with RFA and to assess efficacy and safety outside study protocols, in the absence of reimbursement.

Patients And Methods:  Between February 2008 and January 2017, data from 7 different expert centers were prospectively collected in the registry. Read More

Computer-aided prediction of polyp histology on white light colonoscopy using surface pattern analysis.

Endoscopy 2018 Oct 25. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

Endoscopy Unit, Gastroenterology Department, Hospital Clínic, IDIBAPS, CIBEREHD, University of Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain.

Background:  This study aimed to evaluate a new computational histology prediction system based on colorectal polyp textural surface patterns using high definition white light images.

Methods:  Textural elements (textons) were characterized according to their contrast with respect to the surface, shape, and number of bifurcations, assuming that dysplastic polyps are associated with highly contrasted, large tubular patterns with some degree of bifurcation. Computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) was compared with pathological diagnosis and the diagnosis made by endoscopists using Kudo and Narrow-Band Imaging International Colorectal Endoscopic classifications.

Needle-based confocal laser endomicroscopy of pancreatic cystic lesions: a prospective multicenter validation study in patients with definite diagnosis.

Endoscopy 2018 Oct 22. Epub 2018 Oct 22.

Unité d'Échoendoscopie et d'Endoscopie d'Oncologie Digestive, Institut Paoli Calmettes, Marseille, France.

Background:  Needle-based confocal laser endomicroscopy (nCLE) enables observation of the inner wall of pancreatic cystic lesions (PCLs) during an endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA). This study prospectively evaluated the diagnostic performance of nCLE for large, single, noncommunicating PCLs using surgical histopathology or EUS-FNA cytohistopathology as a reference diagnosis.

Methods:  From April 2013 to March 2016, consecutive patients referred for EUS-FNA of indeterminate PCLs without evidence of malignancy or chronic pancreatitis were prospectively enrolled at five centers. Read More

Endoscopic ultrasound-guided choledochoduodenostomy with electrocautery-enhanced lumen-apposing stents: a retrospective analysis.

Endoscopy 2018 Oct 22. Epub 2018 Oct 22.

Service d'Hépato-gastro-entérologie, Hopital Privé Jean Mermoz, Lyon, Farnce.

Background:  Endoscopic ultrasound-guided biliary drainage is an alternative to percutaneous biliary drainage in cases of malignant biliary obstruction and failure of classic endoscopic drainage by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). Recently, a new electrocautery-enhanced lumen-apposing metal stent (ECE-LAMS) that allows for endoscopic anastomosis (apposition stent) has become available for use in EUS-choledochoduodenostomy (EUS-CDS) and facilitates the procedure.

Methods:  This was a retrospective study of all EUS-CDS procedures performed in France between April 2016 and August 2017. Read More
