BACKGROUND Currently, various advanced endoscopic techniques are available with varying success rates. These technologies are manufacturer dependent, which has financial implications in the current era of austerity. Acetic acid is a commonly available dye that has been used in the detection of neoplasia within Barrett's esophagus. It has been shown to be(More)
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS There have been significant advances in the management of complex colorectal polyps. Previous failed resection or polyp recurrence is associated with significant fibrosis, making endoscopic resection extremely challenging; the traditional approach to these lesions is surgery. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of a(More)
Barrett's oesophagus is of significant importance due to its premalignant potential. Acetic acid chromoendoscopy is a simple technique that can be used with any endoscope system. It has been utilised for the identification of Barrett's intestinal metaplasia; and more importantly, for the localisation of early neoplasia within Barrett's, which is often(More)
Background and study aims: Mucosal views can be impaired by residual bubbles and mucus during gastroscopy. This study aimed to determine whether a pre-gastroscopy drink containing simethicone and N-acetylcysteine improves mucosal visualisation. Patients and methods: We conducted a randomized controlled trial recruiting 126 subjects undergoing routine(More)
Background and study aims Up to 25 % colorectal adenomas are missed during colonoscopy. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the endocuff could improve polyp detection in an organized bowel cancer screening program (BCSP). Patients and methods This parallel group, single-blinded, randomized controlled trial included patients with positive fecal(More)
Retention of residual skills for persons who partially lose their cognitive or physical ability is of utmost importance. Research is focused on developing systems that provide need-based assistance for retention of such residual skills. This paper describes a novel cognitive collaborative control architecture C 3 A, designed to address the challenges of(More)
OBJECTIVE Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) is widely practiced in western countries. Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is very effective for treating complex polyps but colonic ESD in the western setting remains challenging. We have developed a novel technique of knife-assisted snare resection (KAR) for the resection of these complex lesions. Here we(More)
