ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the better efficacy of Capsule Endoscopy (CE) than Push Enteroscopy (PE) in detecting sources of bleeding in patients with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding. A study proving CE more accurate than other methods including PE in the above detection is discussed. He suggests to consider several issues before confirming the role of CE in such patients. He believes that only the patients with inadequate blood count should go for CE. Adequate usage of CE needs to be defined.
