Effectiveness and adverse events of endoscopic clipping versus band ligation for colonic diverticular hemorrhage: a large-scale multicenter cohort study
Endoscopic band ligation is suggested to be an effective and safe technique for diverticular bleeding. Compared with endoscopic clipping, it showed lower early and late rebleeding rates, reduced need for interventional radiology, and shorter length of hospital stay, in this retrospective analysis with data from 1679 patients across 49 hospitals in Japan.
Effect of an artificial intelligence-based quality improvement system on efficacy of a computer- aided detection system in colonoscopy: a fourgroup parallel study
Computer-aided detection (CADe) of polyps and computeraided quality improvement (CAQ) may be used to improve the adenoma detection rate (ADR). Patients were randomly assigned to CADe, CAQ, CADe + CAQ, or control groups. Both interventions independently improved ADR. Improvement in ADR was greater in the combination group versus CADe alone but not versus CAQ alone.
Reducing the environmental footprint of gastrointestinal endoscopy: ESGE and European Society of Gastroenterology and Endoscopy Nurses and Associates (ESGENA) Position Statement
Gastrointestinal endoscopy has a significant environmental impact that has been overlooked until very recently. This Position Statement gathers what information is currently known and provides recommendations for all the agents involved in gastrointestinal endoscopy. The climate crisis demands coordinated and immediate action to achieve a more sustainable endoscopy future.
