"It takes up to 50,000 very clear images in the small bowel
, and the quicker it travels the more pictures it takes, so it's quite a clever piece of kit."
In this case, there was also an associated small bowel
Push enteroscopy allows evaluation of the small bowel
, about 70 cm distal of the ligament of Treitz (5).

cancers are a challenging entity with vague presentation leading to a delay in diagnosis.
Comparison of capsule endoscopy and magnetic resonance (MR) enteroclysis in suspected small bowel
*Endoscopic polypectomy to remove small-bowel polyps involved no digestive tract bleeding and perforation, and open surgery was avoided *Similarly, surgery was unnecessary after endoscopic lithotripsy for small intestinal obstruction caused by an enterolith because the obstruction was relieved when the enterolith was shattered *Among the 18 patients with bleeding from Dieulafoy's lesions of the small bowel
, 14 patients were controlled with endoscopic hemostasis.
Primary repair or anastomosis following segmentary small bowel
resection was generally preferred in patients without intensive intraabdominal problems or abscesses, and in those free of signs of risk factors for intestinal anastomosis in their haemodynamic and laboratory parameters (e.g., acidosis, hypoproteinemia, severe hypotension, chronic steroid intake).
Congenital mesenteric defects often occur in small bowel
mesentery and less commonly in colonic mesentery.

However, this statistical analysis included both small bowel
and large bowel obstructions.
There were three clinical outcome categories: patients with SBO and successful conservative treatment until discharge, patients who underwent operation but had no evidence of intestinal ischemia, and patients who underwent urgent laparotomy with evidence of intestinal ischemia requiring small bowel
