BACKGROUND The development of wireless capsule endoscopy allows painless imaging of the small intestine. Its clinical use is not yet defined. The aim of this study was to compare the clinical efficacy and technical performance of capsule endoscopy and push enteroscopy in a series of 50 patients with colonoscopy and gastroscopy negative gastrointestinal bleeding. METHODS A wireless capsule endoscope was used containing a CMOS colour video imager, transmitter, and batteries. Approximately 50… CONTINUE READING
