BACKGROUND Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) has been positively applied to and gradually standardized for early stomach cancer, particularly in Japan. However, because it is technically difficult to perform ESD of the colon, ESD is not a commonly used technique. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the possibility of standardizing(More)
BACKGROUND There are several reports concerning the differential diagnosis of non-neoplastic and neoplastic colorectal lesions by narrow-band imaging (NBI). However, there are only a few NBI articles that assessed invasion depth. OBJECTIVE To determine the clinical usefulness of NBI magnification for evaluating microvessel architecture in relation to pit(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM In guidelines 2010 for the treatment of colorectal cancer from the Japanese Society for Cancer of the Colon and Rectum (JSCCR), the criteria for identifying curable T1 colorectal carcinoma after endoscopic resection were well/moderately differentiated or papillary histologic grade, no vascular invasion, submucosal invasion depth less than(More)
An early detection of colorectal cancer through colorectal endoscopy is important and widely used in hospitals as a standard medical procedure. During colonoscopy, the lesions of colorectal tumors on the colon surface are visually inspected by a Narrow Band Imaging (NBI) zoom-videoendoscope. By using the visual appearance of colorectal tumors in endoscopic(More)
BACKGROUND Although endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is standard therapy in Japan for gastric epithelial neoplasm, the complication rate is unsatisfactory, with postoperative bleeding as the major complication. The aim of the present study was to determine risk factors for post-ESD bleeding in patients with gastric epithelial neoplasm. PATIENTS AND(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Colorectal laterally spreading tumors (LST) > 20 mm are usually treated by endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) or endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR). Endoscopic piecemeal mucosal resection (EPMR) is sometimes required. The aim of our study was to compare the outcomes of ESD and EMR, including EPMR, for such LST. METHODS A total of(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The usefulness of capsule endoscopy (CE) and of double-balloon endoscopy (DBE) for detection of small-bowel lesions is widely accepted. We compared CE- and DBE-based detection of small-bowel lesions in patients with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (OGIB) who underwent total enteroscopy by both CE and DBE. METHODOLOGY One hundred eighteen(More)
BACKGROUND Narrow band imaging (NBI) uses optical filters for red-green-blue sequential illumination and narrows the bandwidth of spectral transmittance. OBJECTIVE This study aimed to clarify the clinical usefulness of NBI magnification in assessment of pit patterns for diagnosis of colorectal tumors. DESIGN This was a retrospective study. SETTING(More)
Although recent guidelines for endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) as treatment for early gastric cancer (EGC) recommend noninterruption of low-dose aspirin (LDA) perioperatively, this strategy is controversial. It was our practice to interrupt LDA therapy 5–7 days before to ESD until December 2010, when we instituted the new guidelines and performed ESD(More)
We evaluated the topography of histological gastritis, which may be risk factors for gastric cancer (GCa). A total of 530 Helicobacter pylori-positive patients underwent diagnostic upper-gastrointestinal endoscopy. Biopsy specimens were obtained from the gastric antrum and body to assess the grade of gastritis. Subjects were divided into four groups by the(More)
