Gastroscopy, small bowel endoscopy, and colonoscopy are uncomfortable because they require comparatively large diameter flexible cables to be pushed into the bowel, which carry light by fibreoptic bundles, power, and video signals. Small bowel endoscopy is currently especially limited by problems of discomfort and failure to advance enteroscopes far into(More)
The proposed model describes myocyte calcium (Ca++) cycling, emphasizing the kinetics of sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) Ca++ release channels. The suggested SR channel regulating mechanism includes two types of Ca++ binding sites: (1) low affinity sites with high binding rates, regulating the opening of Ca++ channels and (2) high affinity sites with low(More)
The Alfred Mann Foundation is completing development of a coordinated network of BION/spl reg/ microstimulator/sensor (hereinafter implant) that has broad stimulating, sensing and communication capabilities. The network consists of a master control unit (MCU) in communication with a group of BION implants. Each implant is powered by a custom lithium-ion(More)
The introduction of the Video Capsule Endoscope (VCE) by Given Imaging Ltd. (Yoqneam, Israel) in 2001, and its subsequent approval by the FDA as a first line tool in the detection of abnormalities of the small bowel, is indicative of the rapid acceptance of capsule endoscopy by the practicing gastroenterological community. An extensive clinical trials(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Wireless capsule endoscopy is a new, painless method of imaging the entire small bowel. It has not been compared with push enteroscopy. We compared the sensitivity, specificity, and safety of capsule and push enteroscopy in detecting small-bowel lesions. METHODS Nine to 13 radiopaque, colored beads (3-6 mm diameter) were sewn in random(More)
