Evaluation of the effects of an artificial intelligence system on endoscopy quality and preliminary testing of its performance in detecting early gastric cancer: a randomized controlled trial
This randomized controlled trial evaluates an artificial intelligence system capable of intraprocedural monitoring of upper endoscopy blind spots and procedure time, and detection of early gastric cancer (EGC). The system greatly improved the quality of upper endoscopy and has potential to detect EGC in a real clinical setting.
Initial experience with per-rectal endoscopic myotomy for Hirschsprung’s disease: medium and long term outcomes of the first case series of a novel third-space endoscopy procedure
In a small retrospective series, a novel third-space endoscopy technique, per-rectal endoscopic myotomy, was demonstrated to be an effective and safe minimally invasive treatment for short-segment Hirschsprung’s disease with medium-term and long-term efficacy.
Endoscopic tissue sampling – Part 2: Lower gastrointestinal tract. European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) Guideline
Adequate collection and handling of tissue samples during endoscopy is fundamental to pathological diagnosis for the digestive system. This is Part 2 of a two-part ESGE Guideline that provides evidence-based recommendations for optimizing and standardizing tissue collection during gastrointestinal endoscopy, and covers the lower gastrointestinal tract. Part 1 has been published separately and covers the upper gastrointestinal and hepatopancreatobiliary tracts.
