OBJECTIVES:Capsule endoscopy (CE) allows for direct evaluation of the small bowel mucosa in patients with Crohn's disease (CD). A number of studies have revealed significantly improved yield for CE over other modalities for the diagnosis of CD, but as sample sizes have been small, the true degree of benefit is uncertain. Additionally, it is not clear whether patients with a suspected initial presentation of CD and those with suspected recurrent disease are equally likely to benefit from CE. The…

Capsule Endoscopy Has a Significantly Higher Diagnostic Yield in Patients With Suspected and Established Small-Bowel Crohn's Disease: A Meta-Analysis
TLDR
A meta-analysis demonstrates that CE is superior to SBR, CTE, and C+IL in the evaluation of suspected CD patients and is also a more effective diagnostic tool in established CD patients compared with S BR, Cte, and PE.
Effectiveness of Capsule Endoscopy Compared with Other Diagnostic Modalities in Patients with Small Bowel Crohn’s Disease: A Meta-Analysis
TLDR
The findings of the meta-analysis indicate that CE is superior to SBFT and EC in the evaluation of suspected CD cases and is also a more effective diagnostic modality in patients with established CD compared with EC.
Capsule Endoscopy Has a Signifi cantly Higher Diagnostic Yield in Patients With Suspected and Established Small-Bowel Crohn ' s Disease:
TLDR
A meta-analysis demonstrates that CE is superior to SBR, CTE, and C + IL in the evaluation of suspected CD patients and is also a more effective diagnostic tool in established CD patients compared with S BR, Cte, and PE.
Yield to diagnostic accuracy: capsule endoscopy in Crohn's disease.
Small bowel video capsule endoscopy in Crohn's disease: What have we learned in the last ten years?
TLDR
Several cutting-edge aspects of the usefulness of CE in CD 10 years after its introduction as a sensible method to study the small intestine are discussed.
The Utility of Capsule Endoscopy in Patients With Suspected Crohn's Disease
TLDR
In patients with suspected CD, CE has a high sensitivity and a NPV for this condition and the PPV varies depending on the patient population and the criteria for a CE diagnosis of CD.
Impact of Capsule Endoscopy Findings in the Management of Crohn’s Disease
TLDR
Capsule endoscopy has a high diagnostic yield even in patients with previously known CD, and its findings may influence disease management and clinical outcome.
Capsule Endoscopy for Crohn's Disease: Current Status of Diagnosis and Management
TLDR
Video capsule endoscopy (VCE) has a higher diagnostic yield than small bowel barium radiography and computed tomography enterography for the detection of small intestinal involvement of CD and may have several advantages over MR-based tests for the Detection of early small intestinal lesions.
Small Bowel Capsule Endoscopy in the Management of Established Crohn's Disease: Clinical Impact, Safety, and Correlation with Inflammatory Biomarkers
TLDR
VCE in patients with established CD is safe, and the results often have a significant clinical impact, and VCE should not be limited to CD patients with positive inflammatory markers because their predictive value for significant SB inflammation is poor.

Crohn disease of the small bowel: preliminary comparison among CT enterography, capsule endoscopy, small-bowel follow-through, and ileoscopy.
TLDR
This preliminary study demonstrates capsule endoscopy and CT enterography may depict nonobstructive Crohn disease when techniques such as ileoscopes and SBFT have negative or inconclusive findings.
Small bowel involvement in Crohn’s disease: a prospective comparison of wireless capsule endoscopy and computed tomography enteroclysis
TLDR
Capsule endoscopy improves the diagnosis of small bowel Crohn’s disease and may have significant therapeutic impact, according to patients.
Videocapsule Endoscopy versus Barium Contrast Studies for the Diagnosis of Crohn's Disease Recurrence Involving the Small Intestine
TLDR
This is the first study to evaluate the occurrence of active disease in patients with known Crohn's disease and found VCE and SBFT are complementary for the diagnosis of CD.
Comparison of capsule endoscopy and magnetic resonance (MR) enteroclysis in suspected small bowel disease
TLDR
In patients with Crohn’s disease WCE revealed significantly more inflammatory lesions in the proximal and middle part of the small bowel in comparison to MREnteroclysis, whereas in patients with obscure GI bleeding WCE was superior to MR enteroclytic.
Diagnosing Crohn's disease: an economic analysis comparing wireless capsule endoscopy with traditional diagnostic procedures.
TLDR
Comparing the costs of a diagnostic algorithm incorporating wireless capsule endoscopy (WCE) with the current algorithm for diagnosing Crohn's disease suspected in the small bowel shows that Employing WCE as a first-line diagnostic procedure appears to be less costly, from a payor perspective, than current common procedures fordiagnosing suspected Crohn’s disease in theSmall bowel.
A prospective trial comparing small bowel radiographs and video capsule endoscopy for suspected small bowel disease.
TLDR
The video capsule endoscope was found to be superior to small bowel radiograph for evaluation of small bowel diseases, however, this novel wireless endoscope system needs further assessment because of limitations such as difficulties in interpretation of potentially nonspecific findings.

TLDR
Capsule endoscopy provides higher rates and more accurate diagnosis of small bowel diseases and the future of this technology could improve the ability to visualize the small bowel and improve the treatment of patients with small bowel disorders.
