OBJECTIVES:Several advanced imaging techniques have been developed to improve differentiation of colorectal lesions. These techniques need to be assessed for both feasibility and accuracy in order to prove their value in daily clinical practice. The current study assessed the feasibility of probe-based confocal laser endomicroscopy (pCLE) in acquiring(More)
OBJECTIVES:Endoscopic tri-modal imaging incorporates high-resolution white-light endoscopy (HR-WLE), narrow-band imaging (NBI), and autofluorescence imaging (AFI). Combining these advanced techniques may improve endoscopic differentiation between adenomas and non-neoplastic polyps. In this study, we aimed to assess the interobserver variability and accuracy(More)
Pyogenic granuloma is a lobular capillary hemangioma that mostly occurs on the skin, but it is also encountered on the mucosal surface of the oral cavity. Only a few cases in other parts of the digestive tract have been reported in Japanese patients. In this report, two Caucasian patients are described, who presented with gastrointestinal bleeding due to(More)
More than 50 years have passed since Barrett described a case of peptic ulcer disease of the esophagus and the condition that would carry his name [1]. It is now generally accepted that Barrett esophagus is the result of long-standing gastroesophageal reflux disease leading to replacement of the normal stratified squamous epithelial lining of the esophagus(More)
Gastrointestinal and pancreatic endocrine tumors are neoplasms of which the pathogenesis is not completely understood and of which the clinical behavior is difficult to predict. Originally, Masson suggested that the cell of origin was an endocrine cell derived from the gastrointestinal epithelium. However, Pearse showed that the endocrine cells throughout(More)
