BACKGROUND AND AIMS There is little evidence that structures targeted during EUS-guided celiac ganglia neurolysis (EUS-CGN) are celiac ganglia and that selective ethanol injection into ganglia is… Expand
Colorectal endoscopic full-thickness resection using a novel, flat-base over-the-scope clip: a prospective study.
Background and study aims We aimed to evaluate the feasibility and safety of a new, flat-based over-the-scope clip (Padlock Clip) for colorectal endoscopic full-thickness resection (eFTR). Patients… Expand
Endoscopic full-thickness resection of gastric and duodenal subepithelial lesions using a new, flat-based over-the-scope clip
BackgroundSurgical resection of upper gastrointestinal (GI) subepithelial tumors (SETs) is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. A new over-the-scope (OTS) clip can be used for… Expand

OBJECTIVES: Studies on the impact of rapid on‐site evaluation (ROSE) during endoscopic ultrasound‐guided fineneedle aspiration (EUS‐FNA) of lymph nodes are retrospective and have shown conflicting… Expand
Hydraulic dilation with a shape-measuring balloon in idiopathic achalasia: a feasibility study.
BACKGROUND AND AIM Pneumatic dilation is a commonly used treatment in achalasia. Recent studies have shown that esophageal distensibility measurements can be used to assess the effect of dilation and… Expand
Growth rate of small pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors in multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1: results from an endoscopic ultrasound based cohort study.
Background and aims In multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1), endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is used for identification and follow-up of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs). The role of EUS in… Expand
Stent placement for benign esophageal leaks, perforations, and fistulae: a clinical prediction rule for successful leakage control.
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS Sealing esophageal leaks by stent placement allows healing in 44 % - 94 % of patients. We aimed to develop a prediction rule to predict the chance of successful stent… Expand
Electromagnetic-guided placement of nasoduodenal feeding tubes versus endoscopic placement: a randomized, multicenter trial.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Electromagnetic-guided placement (EMP) of a nasoduodenal feeding tube by trained nurses is an attractive alternative to EGD-guided placement (EGDP). We aimed to compare EMP and… Expand
