Advantage of endoscopic submucosal dissection compared with EMR for early gastric cancer.
BACKGROUND In EMR of early gastric cancer (EGC), en bloc resection reduces the risk of residual cancer. Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) now allows en bloc resection of large EGCs. OBJECTIVEExpand

Comparison of detectability of small-bowel lesions between capsule endoscopy and double-balloon endoscopy for patients with suspected small-bowel disease.
BACKGROUND There are many reports of the usefulness of capsule endoscopy (CE) or double-balloon endoscopy (DBE) for the detection of small-bowel disease. However, there are few reports that comparedExpand
