ABSTRACT
Wireless capsule endoscopy has been shown to be superior to push enteroscopy in gastroscopy and colonoscopy negative gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding. This is not surprising since wireless capsule endoscopy has the potential to visualise the entire length of the small intestine. However, no prospective comparison between mesenteric angiography and wireless capsule endoscopy has been carried out. In this first prospective comparison of capsule endoscopy, with mesenteric angiography in obscure GI haemorrhage, both investigations had a comparable rate of detection of the source of haemorrhage. However, the two procedures were complementary and together detected the source of haemorrhage in 71 % of patients.
