showed multiple inflammatory polyps in the upper jejunum and circumferential ulceration in the stenosed jejunum (diameter <0.
Hookworm infection presenting as overt gastrointestinal bleeding: lessons from double-balloon enteroscopy
in the tropics.
Obscure gastrointestinal bleeding: role of videocapsule and double-balloon enteroscopy
RBC scintigraphy also plays an important role in the diagnosis of small intestinal bleeding, when conventional endoscopy (EGD, push enteroscopy and colonoscopy) has limited value, and costly innovative methods such as capsule endoscopy and double-balloon enteroscopy
are not readily available.
In-patient services include all cases of gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding, liver disease, etc, while the outpatient services include endoscopy, colonoscopy, double-balloon enteroscopy
The patient underwent an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, colonoscopy, and double-balloon enteroscopy
to investigate further his condition.
Endoscopic procedures like Double-balloon enteroscopy
(9) and capsule endoscopy are useful in diagnosing small-bowel disorders.
Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the detection rate accuracy of Double-balloon Enteroscopy
(DBE) after Capsule Endoscopy (CE) in patients with suspected small bowel diseases.
Recognizing this condition pre-operatively requires a high index of suspicion, however enteroclysis intra-operative enteroscopy (2,3), double-balloon enteroscopy
(6) and combined enteroscopy and enteroclysis (7) are some imaging modalities that may help confirm the diagnosis and also delineate the extent of resection.
In addition, CE is less invasive and more widely available than double-balloon enteroscopy
Summary: Prospective, randomised study proves double-balloon enteroscopy
to be superior to newer single-balloon technique
Evaluation of deep small bowel involvement by double-balloon enteroscopy
in Crohn's disease.
