The gastroenterologist endoscopist is an asset to the Nutrition Support Team and should participate in providing optimal nutrition therapy to the hospitalized adult patient. Expand
Late effects of gastric bypass for obesity.

Assessment of Crohn’s Disease Lesions in Wireless Capsule Endoscopy Images
This work is the first study to systematically explore supervised classification for CD lesions, a classifier cascade to classify discrete lesions, as well as quantitative assessment of lesion severity, using a well-developed database of 47 studies. Expand
Comparing diagnostic yield of a novel pan-enteric video capsule endoscope with ileocolonoscopy in patients with active Crohn's disease: a feasibility study.
This preliminary study shows that the diagnostic yields for SBC might be higher than IC; however, the magnitude of difference between the two is difficult to estimate. Expand
Lymphoma in inflammatory bowel disease
Nine patients with lymphoma occurring in association with inflammatory bowel disease were admitted to The Mount Sinai Hospital between 1960 and 1983; four of them had associated colonic carcinoma; in three of them, the carcinoma appeared within the first decade of colitis, an unusual occurrence.

Performance characteristics of the suspected blood indicator feature in capsule endoscopy according to indication for study.
Performance characteristics of the currently available SBI feature in WCE are suboptimal and insufficient to screen for lesions with bleeding potential, but in patients with suspected Crohn's disease, the high sensitivity and negative predictive value of SBI may make it a useful tool for the detection of large areas of abnormal mucosa.
