The proposed management paradigm of colorectal polyps, including endoscopic surveillance intervals, depends on the size as well as qualitative assessment of colorectal polyps.1, 2 Although endoscopists are asked to assess the polyp size accurately, some studies have demonstrated a bias in the measurement of colorectal polyp size at colonoscopy.3 We evaluated the distribution of colorectal polyp size by endoscopic estimation and investigated the presence of measurement bias in Japan.

OBJECTIVES: Clinical significance of endoscopic response (ER) after neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) for esophageal cancer has not been fully understood. Thus, this study aimed to investigate the association between ER to NAC and its clinicopathological outcomes in patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). METHODS: In total, 141 patients who underwent NAC and subsequent esophagectomy for ESCC were included. The ER to NAC was retrospectively evaluated based on macroscopic findings of the primary tumor, which was classified into three categories: endoscopic no response (eNR), endoscopic partial response (ePR), and endoscopic good response (eGR)...

Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for superficial gastrointestinal neoplasms has become widespread. However, certain aspects of the procedure remain difficult to manage, such as intraoperative bleeding and perforation. There are two kinds of scissors-type knives: the Clutch Cutter (Fujifilm, Co., Tokyo, Japan) and SB knife (Sumitomo Bakelite Co., Tokyo, Japan). These knives have different features from other types of ESD knives and enable the performance of all ESD procedures, including mucosal incision, submucosal dissection, and hemostasis...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic placement of 3 branched self-expandable metallic stents (SEMSs) for high-grade malignant hilar biliary obstructions (MHBOs) is technically challenging. We examined the feasibility and efficacy of a novel stenting method combining side-by-side and stent-in-stent (SBSIS) placement for MHBO. METHODS: Between January 2015 and December 2018, 27 consecutive patients with high-grade MHBO underwent SBSIS placement. We evaluated the technical success, functional success, recurrent biliary obstruction (RBO), adverse events other than RBO, and reintervention success rates associated with SBSIS placement...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the usefulness of a training program on endoscopic head and neck surveillance for beginner endoscopists. METHODS: This prospective multicenter study included 13 beginner endoscopists from 10 institutions who received training in systematic observation techniques and diagnostic criteria, and the training involved hands-on learning. Between May 2016 and February 2017, enrolled patients with current or previously diagnosed esophageal squamous cell carcinomas underwent head and neck surveillance using narrow band imaging (NBI) endoscopy, and the histologically confirmed head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) detection rates, endoscopic image quality, and examination times were compared before (group A) and after (group B) the training program...

Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for removal of gastrointestinal tumors is a conventional technique; however, ESD has been reported to result in complications such as stricture and delayed bleeding. In the case of colorectal ESD, resection of >90% of the circumference is a significant factor related to stricture, and the median duration until the diagnosis of stricture after ESD is 1 month (range, 0.5-2.0 months).1 This article is protected by copyright.

Over the last decade, impressive technological advances have occurred in ultrasonography and small-bowel endoscopy. Nowadays, endoscopic ultrasonography is an essential diagnostic tool and a therapeutic weapon for pancreato-biliary disorders. Capsule endoscopy and device-assisted enteroscopy have quickly become the reference standard for the diagnosis of small-bowel luminal diseases, thereby leading to radical changes in diagnostic and therapeutic pathways. We hereby provide an up-to-date overview of the latest advances in endoscopic ultrasonography and small-bowel endoscopy, focusing on the emerging paradigms and technological innovations that might improve clinical practice in the near future...

Re-intervention after the deployment of several stents can be challenging. Balloon catheterization using a dilator is one technical procedure that is often used to dilate an obstructed site, which is an important means of achieving technical success. However, this can be hampered by the complexity of working in a milieu of several deployed stents. A novel, fine-gauge electrocautery dilator (Fine 025, Medico's HIRATA INC., Japan, Osaka) (Fig 1) is now available in Japan for dilation during endoscopic ultrasound-guided biliary drainage...

REVIEW
Ji Young Bang, Shyam Varadarajulu
Lumen-apposing metal stents (LAMS) are integrated in a single-step delivery platform and can be deployed under endoscopic ultrasound-guidance for the drainage of intra-abdominal fluid collections, decompression of obstructed ductal systems, establishment of anastomosis or creation of fistulous tracts between organs that can facilitate further endoscopic interventions if required. A unique feature of LAMS is their ability to approximate the adjoining structures thereby minimizing the potential for leak and perforation...

OBJECTIVES: Oral feeding following variceal ligation in cirrhotics is usually delayed due to fear of re-bleed. Solid diet is usually further delayed (till 72 hours), despite lack of evidence. We aimed to compare the impact of early versus delayed feeding on re-bleeding following variceal ligation. METHODS: This was a prospective randomized controlled trial, including patients undergoing variceal ligation for active esophageal variceal bleed. Patients were randomized into 2 groups...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Cold snare polypectomy (CSP) is a safe treatment for colorectal adenomas. However, the R0 resection rate is not sufficiently high because of inadequate resection of muscularis mucosa. We hypothesized that CSP in an underwater environment could improve this procedure by helping achieve a resection containing the muscularis mucosa with safety and have named this "underwater cold snare polypectomy" (UCSP). We aimed to investigate the efficacy and safety of UCSP for colorectal adenomas...

Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) has been increasingly adopted worldwide as the standard treatment for early gastrointestinal (GI) neoplasia1 . ESD remains time-consuming despite nation-wide and global society skill-up training programs1,2 . It remains technically problematic despite its prevalence in East Asia, especially in intestinal ESD settings. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Esophageal neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC) is rare1 and often progresses rapidly with poor prognoses2,3 . A 75-year-old woman showed a 20-mm reddish depressed lesion, with central elevation and apparent wall extensions in her middle thoracic esophagus on esophagogastroduodenoscopy (Fig 1A, B).

Endoscopic dilation for severe benign biliary stricture using mechanical dilation devices is occasionally ineffective. Hence, diathermic dilation has recently been gaining attention as a salvage procedure. We evaluated the short- and long-term outcomes of diathermic dilation for severe benign biliary stricture that could not be dilated using the conventional mechanical dilation. 13 consecutive cases with severe benign biliary stricture that underwent diathermic dilation using 6-Fr electrocautery dilator were enrolled...
