BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Colorectal endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is technically challenging. Our aim was to identify predictors of incomplete resection and perforation in colorectal ESD. DESIGN Retrospective study. SETTING Academic Japanese endoscopy unit. PATIENTS AND MAIN OUTCOME MEASUREMENTS A total of 267 consecutive cases of colorectal(More)
Although delayed bleeding is a major complication of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for colorectal neoplasms, few reports have assessed the risk factors for delayed bleeding after colorectal ESD. This study included 363 consecutive patients in whom 377 colorectal neoplasms were resected using ESD between April 2006 and August 2012. We classified(More)
Although Japanese guidelines proposed by the Japan Gastroenterological Endoscopy Society for endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for colorectal tumors recommend continued use of low-dose aspirin (LDA), this strategy is controversial. It was our practice to interrupt LDA therapy 5–7 days before ESD until December 2010, when we instituted the new(More)
Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for colorectal tumor is a minimally invasive treatment. Histologic information obtained from the entire ESD specimen is important for therapy selection in submucosal invasive colorectal carcinoma (SMca). This study aimed to identify risk factors for vertical incomplete resection (vertical margin-positive [VM+]) when(More)
BACKGROUND Colitis-associated cancer/dysplasia is an intestinal tract condition that can affect the life expectancy of patients with ulcerative colitis. It is often difficult to detect neoplastic lesions. This study evaluated whether any endoscopic features are effective for distinguishing colitis-associated cancer/dysplasia from nonneoplastic lesions in(More)
The standard treatment approach for squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the anal canal includes abdominoperineal resection and chemoradiotherapy. However, there are currently very few reports of early SCC of the anal canal resected by endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD). We report 2 rare cases of SCC of the anal canal resected by ESD. In case 1, a(More)
Histopathology can be used to detect ulcerative colitis (UC) relapse, but diagnosis of the disease activity by histopathology requires multiple biopsies to be taken. Magnifying endocytoscopy provides a method for real-time ultra-magnifying imaging. It was recently reported that the endocytoscopy system score (ECSS) correlates well with the histopathology of(More)
The lower rectum close to the dentate line has distinct characteristics, making endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) of tumors challenging. We assessed clinical outcomes of ESD for such patients with hemorrhoids. Sixty-four patients (mean age, 68 years) underwent ESD for anorectal tumors close to the dentate line. We divided patients into those with(More)
BACKGROUND Dual red imaging (DRI), a novel image-enhanced endoscopic technique, is expected to improve visibility of thin vessels, but no reports of the clinical use of DRI in colorectal endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) have been published. We aimed to compare the visibility of vessels, demarcation line between the submucosal and muscle layers after(More)
Background and study aims: Colitis-associated cancer/dysplasia (CC/D) can affect the life expectancy of patients with ulcerative colitis (UC). Although the utility of magnifying chromocolonoscopy has been shown, the use of optical magnification with narrow band imaging (NBI) for distinguishing CC/D from non-neoplastic lesions in patients with UC has not(More)
