BACKGROUND There are many reports of the usefulness of capsule endoscopy (CE) or double-balloon endoscopy (DBE) for the detection of small-bowel disease. However, there are few reports that compared CE and DBE. OBJECTIVE To determine whether CE or DBE better detects small-bowel lesions in patients with suspected small-bowel disease. DESIGN A prospective single-center study. SETTING Department of Endoscopy, Hiroshima University Hospital. MAIN OUTCOME MEASUREMENTS Rates of CE and DBE… CONTINUE READING
