Long-lasting lifting is a key factor during endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) and can be obtained by water-jet injection of saline solution or by injection of viscous macromolecular solutions. Combination of the jet injection and the macromolecular viscous solutions has never been used yet. We assessed the ability of a new water-jet system to inject(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Capsule endoscopy for visualization of the upper GI tract has thus far been experimental and potentially expensive. Our aim was to demonstrate the maneuverability and evaluate the ability to completely visualize and maintain views in the upper GI tract by using a simple magnetic-assisted capsule endoscopy (MACE) system. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Per-oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) has shown promising safety and efficacy in short-term studies. However, long-term follow-up data are very limited. The aims of this study were to assess (1) clinical outcome of patients with a minimum post-POEM follow-up of 2 years and (2) factors associated with long-term clinical failure after POEM.(More)
High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) was first developed to ablate prostatic tissue [1]. The ultrasound beam is focused at the focal point of the transducer and the energy concentration produces tissue necrosis [2]. HIFU has also been used to ablate metastases on the surface of the liver either surgically or via the transcutaneous approach [3,4].(More)
Recent developments in therapeutic endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) have enabled new approaches to the management of refractory gastrointestinal bleeding, including EUS-guided sclerotherapy and vessel embolization. Few cases have been reported in the literature. Eight patients were admitted for severe, refractory gastrointestinal bleeding, seven of whom were(More)
The cause of bile duct leaks can be either iatrogenic or more rarely, traumatic. The most common cause is related to laparoscopic cholecystectomy. While surgical repair has been the standard for many years, management in these often morbid and complex situations must currently be multidisciplinary incorporating the talents of interventional radiologists and(More)
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIM Video capsule endoscopy (VCE) is recommended as the first exploration in obscure digestive bleeding. The efficiency of the PillCam SB2 (Given Imaging) has been widely reported. The CapsoCam capsule (Capsovision) has four cameras allowing the exploration of the small bowel through 360° lateral viewing. This system does not include a(More)
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS The ENKI-2 water-jet system for endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) combines submucosal saline pressure injection with dissection. The aim of this study was to compare ENKI-2 with a standard device in terms of procedure time and perforation rate during colorectal ESD. METHODS In this randomized comparative study, 10(More)
ESD is the reference method to achieve en bloc resections for large digestive lesions. Nevertheless, it is a difficult and risky technique. Animal models exist to teach the initial skills, particularly in Japan, where pigs’ stomachs are dedicated models to gastric ESD. In Europe, we have to develop different strategies of teaching with dedicated colon(More)
INTRODUCTION As part of a hospital clinical research program on endoscopic curative treatment for early epithelial neoplastic lesions of the gastrointestinal tract, a new hospital sterile and non-pyrogenic preparation of fructose (5%)-glycerol (10%) was realized. Under pharmaceutical legislation, the provision of this hospital preparation involves of(More)
