    Obscure gastrointestinal bleeding is defined as bleeding of unknown origin, that persists or recurs after negative conventional barium contrast studies and upper and lower tract endoscopy. The causes of such a bleeding frequently arise in the small bowel, and they are represented by mucosal...

    Double-balloon endoscopy (DBE) utilizes both oral and anal routes. The proper selection of the initial route is important for more rapid management of obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (OGIB). The aim of this retrospective study was to clarify the accuracy of the transit time of video capsule...

    Historically, the small bowel has been a difficult area to examine due to its anatomy, location and relative tortuosity. Conventional radiology, such as barium follow-through and enteroclysis, permit indirect examination of the small bowel, but has a low diagnostic yield particularly in the...

    Background and Aims: The diagnostic accuracy of capsule endoscopy has been suggested to be influenced by the direction of the passage in the intestine. It is currently unknown if a head-first or a tail-first orientation are equally common during the descent through the small bowel. The aim of...

    Using decision analytic modeling, these authors investigated the clinical and economic benefits of capsule endoscopy (CE) compared with ileo-colonoscopy and small-bowel follow-through (SBFT) for the evaluation of Crohn's disease. Overall, CE was marginally less costly than the use of SBFT;...
