The management of patients with resectable cancer of the esophagus or gastroesophageal junction is currently not standardized. A multi- disciplinary regional consensus has been developed and is presented in this article. The standard workup includes an upper endoscopy, ultrasonography and a CT-scan. For locally advanced tumors, surgery should be associated(More)
BACKGROUND Strictures are frequent complications of large endoscopic mucosal resections (EMR) and endoscopic submucosal dissections of the esophagus. Local or systemic steroid therapy has shown promise in the prevention of secondary stenosis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of systemic steroid therapy following endoscopic(More)
Portal hypertension is regularly encountered by the general practitioner. It is defined by an elevation of the porto-systemic pressure gradient, with complications such as ascites, spontaneous bacterial peritonitis, hepatorenal syndrome, variceal bleeding, hypersplenism, hepatopulmonary syndrome or hepatic encephalopathy occuring when a significant(More)
Endotherapy (ET) has replaced surgery as the first-line treatment of high-grade dysplasia (HGD)/superficial ECA (ECAs) from Barrett’s oesophagus (BO). However, long-term follow-up and predictive factors of relapse are not so well studied. The aim of the following study was to evaluate the efficiency of ET for treatment of HGD/ECAs and to determine factors(More)
Background and aims: Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a mixed inflammatory and fibrostenotic disease. Unlike superficial inflammatory changes, subepithelial fibrosis is not routinely sampled in esophageal biopsies. This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of deep esophageal sampling with four different types of biopsy forceps. Patients and(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided biliary drainage techniques are alternative procedures in cases of obstructive jaundice with altered anatomy or failed ERCP. Complications related to EUS-guided antegrade drainage (EUS-AD) are still present in up to 10% of cases, and combination of procedures is sometimes suggested to avoid(More)
The term « eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders » describes a group of diseases that comprises eosinophilic esophagitis, gastritis, enteritis, and colitis. Eosinophilic esophagitis is the most prevalent form while eosinophilic gastritis, enteritis, and colitis are rare. Food antigens have increasingly been found to trigger the inflammatory response. This(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Endoscopic ultrasound-guided hepaticogastrostomy (EUS-HGS) represents an option to treat obstructive jaundice when endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) fails. The success rate of this procedure has been shown to be very high. Up to now, plastic and self-expandable metallic stents (SEMSs) have been employed, each of(More)
BACKGROUND Endoscopic management of Barrett's esophagus (BE) depends on the histological stage of BE and includes the following: follow up, endotherapy with thermal ablation, and piecemeal or monobloc endoscopic resection (ER). We know that biopsies are unreliable in 20-75% of cases. The aim of our study was to evaluate the efficiency of probe confocal(More)
