Yuan Gao, Bing Hu
In this editorial, we comment on the article published in the recent issue of the World Journal of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy . We focused on the understanding of appendiceal disease, and the various options for diagnosis and treatment via endoscopy. Some factors affecting the diagnosis and management of appendiceal diseases are also discussed. The existence of any organ has its natural rationality, and the appendix is such a magical organ. A growing number of experts and scholars have gradually come to a consensus that the appendix is not a useless evolutionary relic...

Obesity is a chronic, progressive, and relapsing disease of excess adiposity that contributes to more than two hundred medical conditions and is projected to affect more than half the adult population of the United States by the year 2030. Given the limited penetrance of traditional bariatric surgery, as well as the cost and adherence barriers to anti-obesity medications, there is growing interest in the rapidly evolving field of endoscopic bariatric therapies (EBTs). EBTs are minimally invasive, same-day, per-oral endoscopic procedures and include endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty, intragastric balloons, and endoscopic bariatric revisional procedures...

EDITORIAL
Yu-Hang Zhang, Bing Hu
In this editorial, we comment on the minireview by Martino A, published in the recent issue of World Journal of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy 2023; 15 (12): 681-689. We focused mainly on the possibility of replacing the hepatic venous pressure gradient (HVPG) and endoscopy with noninvasive methods for predicting esophageal variceal bleeding. The risk factors for bleeding were the size of the varices, the red sign and the Child-Pugh score. The intrinsic core factor that drove these changes was the HVPG. Therefore, the present studies investigating noninvasive methods, including computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, elastography, and laboratory tests, are working on correlating imaging or serum marker data with intravenous pressure and clinical outcomes, such as bleeding...

This letter to the editor relates to the study entitled "The role of computed tomography for the prediction of esophageal variceal bleeding: Current status and future perspectives". Esophageal variceal bleeding (EVB) is one of the most common and severe complications related to portal hypertension (PH). Despite marked advances in its management during the last three decades, EVB is still associated with significant morbidity and mortality. The risk of first EVB is related to the severity of both PH and liver disease, and to the size and endoscopic appearance of esophageal varices...

Anal pruritus is a common anorectal symptom that can significantly impair a patient's quality of life, including their mental health. It can be one of the most difficult proctological conditions to treat. Patients often delay seeking medical attention, since it is an embarrassing but non-life-threatening situation. Pruritus ani can be associated with idiopathic and secondary causes, such as anorectal diseases, cancer (anal or colorectal), dermatological and sexually transmitted diseases, fungal infections and systemic diseases...

Colonoscopy is the gold standard for the screening and diagnosis of colorectal cancer, resulting in a decrease in the incidence and mortality of colon cancer. However, it has a 21% rate of missed polyps. Several strategies have been devised to increase polyp detection rates and improve their characterization and delimitation. These include chromoendoscopy (CE), the use of other devices such as Endo cuffs, and major advances in endoscopic equipment [high definition, magnification, narrow band imaging, i-scan, flexible spectral imaging color enhancement, texture and color enhancement imaging (TXI), etc...

BACKGROUND: Benign rectal strictures can be categorized as primary (disease-related) and secondary (surgical anastomosis-related). Secondary strictures arise from surgical complications, whereas primary strictures have diverse etiologies, including various inflammatory conditions. Benign strictures are usually managed by surgery and endoscopy. We present an unusual etiology of benign rectal stricture caused by the repeated insertion of foreign objects into the rectum for sexual purposes, resulting in rectal injury and subsequent chronic inflammation...

In this editorial we comment on the article published in the recent issue of the World Journal of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy 2023; 15 (11): 634-680. Gastric cancer (GC) remains the fifth most common malignancy and the fourth leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide. The overall prevalence of GC has declined, although that of proximal GC has increased over time. Thus, a significant proportion of GC cases and deaths can be avoided if preventive interventions are taken. Early GC (EGC) is defined as GC confined to the mucosa or submucosa...
