This article focuses on a study related to neural networking to predict bleeding at sphincterotomy during ERCP. Sphincterotomy at ERCP is perhaps the most dangerous of all procedures at therapeutic endoscopy. Neural networking is a computer based tool which researchers developed to improve the predictive power of clinical scenarios. Data from 65 patients who had undergone ERCP and sphincterotomy over the past year at the hospital were analyzed to predict haemorrhage. Sphincterotomy was forwarded as a variable along with balloon sweep, use of an endoprosthesis, repeat ERCP, and age and gender of the patient.

    Background: The small bowel has been considered the 'black box' of gastroenterology. Identifying the exact site of small bowel hemorrhage is often difficult, thus complicating surgical treatment. We report two cases of small bowel bleeding lesions that were successfully managed by intraoperative...

    Aim. Large food bits can get stuck in the esophagus and must be removed by endoscopy. In some cases, this can be difficult or unsafe. We describe a new and safe treatment for such patients. Materials and Methods. 100 consecutive patients were referred to Akershus University Hospital with...

    Dieulafoy’s lesion is an uncommon cause of major gastrointestinal bleeding and may be difficult to recognize. It consists of an arteriole that protrudes through a tiny mucosal defect usually within 6 cm of the gastroesophageal junction on the lesser curve of the stomach. Despite...
