"Endoscopic grading of gastric intestinal metaplasia (EGGIM):
a multicenter validation study"

by Gianluca Esposito et al.

Fig. 1 Example narrow-band imaging (NBI) views of the endoscopic grading of gastric intestinal metaplasia (EGGIM) scores at the greater curvature of the antrum, the incisura, and the greater curvature of the corpus showing: top row EGGIM 0, which is normal mucosa (no GIM); middle row EGGIM 1, shown by the presence of regular ridge/tubulo-villous mucosa with regular vessels in a small area of the mucosa (focal GIM; ≤ 30% of the area); bottom row EGGIM 2, shown by the presence of regular ridge/tubulo-villous mucosa with regular vessels and the presence of light-blue crests in several areas of the mucosa (extensive IM; > 30% of the area).

"A deep neural network improves endoscopic detection of early gastric cancer without blind spots"

by Lianlian Wu et al.

Fig. 10 Representative images predicted by the deep convolution neural network (DCNN) in the test set for the classification of gastric locations into 10 parts, showing the gastric locations determined by the DCNN and their prediction confidence. Class 0, esophagus; 1, squamocolumnar junction; 2, antrum; 3, duodenal bulb; 4, descending duodenum; 5, lower body in forward view; 6, middle-upper body in forward view; 7, fundus; 8, middle-upper body in retroflexed view; 9, angulus.

"Balloon enteroscopy-assisted radial incision and cutting method for refractory hepaticojejunostomy anastomotic strictures"

by Tadahisa Inoue et al.

Fig. 2 Endoscopic view of balloon enteroscopy-assisted radial incision and cutting. a Endoscopic view showing a recurrent and very severe hepaticojejunostomy anastomotic stricture. b A 0.025-inch guidewire is inserted into the bile duct across the stricture. c,d,e The tip and blade of an insulated-tip knife are inserted into the bile duct across the stricture along the guidewire. The stricture is subsequently incised vertically using the knife, and the scar tissue is sliced off and shaved using the knife. f The stricture is sufficiently improved after the procedure.

"Endoscopic ultrasound-guided choledochoduodenostomy with electrocautery-enhanced lumen-apposing stents: a retrospective analysis"

by Jeremie Jacques et al.

Fig. 1 Description of endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided choledochoduodenostomy with the electrocautery-enhanced lumen-apposing metal stent (ECE-LAMS; Hot Axios; Boston Scientific, Marlborough, Massachusetts, USA). a Dilated common bile duct (CBD) in a 65-year-old patient with pancreatic head carcinoma and failed endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography. b Direct fistulotomy using the electrocautery device of the Hot Axios system. c Intrabiliary opening of the distal flange after the device is pushed deeply into the dilated CBD. d Tracting of the stent during opening of the proximal flange under pure EUS guidance (in the working channel). e EUS view of the deployed stent. f Endoscopic view of intraduodenal bile flow.
