Small-bowel capsule endoscopy in patients with Meckel’s diverticulum: clinical features, diagnostic workup, and findings. A European multicenter I-CARE study.
Peter Baltes, Xavier Dray, Maria Elena Riccioni, et al. 23.12.2022
Background and study aim: Meckel’s Diverticulum (MD) may remain silent or be associated with complications like gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding. The main aim of this study was to evaluate indicative small bowel capsule endoscopy (SBCE) findings and the secondary aim to describe clinical presentation in patients with MD.
Inter/Intra-Observer Agreement in Video-Capsule Endoscopy: Are We Getting It All Wrong? A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.
Cortegoso Valdivia P, Deding U, Bjørsum-Meyer T, et al. 02.10.2022
Video-capsule endoscopy (VCE) reading is a time- and energy-consuming task. Agreement on findings between readers (either different or the same) is a crucial point for increasing performance and providing valid reports. The aim of this systematic review with meta-analysis is to provide an evaluation of inter/intra-observer agreement in VCE reading.
Score reproducibility and reliability in differentiating small bowel subepithelial masses from innocent bulges.
Sciberras M, Conti K, Elli L, et al. 01.10.2022
Aims: The primary aim of this study was to assess the reliability, intra- and inter-observer variation of the SPICE, Mucosal protrusion angle (MPA) and SHYUNG scores in differentiating a subepithelial mass (SEM) from a bulge. Methods: This retrospective multicentre study analysed the 3 scores, radiological studies, enteroscopy and/or surgical findings.
Nomenclature and Definition of Atrophic Lesions in Small Bowel Capsule Endoscopy: A Delphi Consensus Statement of the International CApsule endoscopy REsearch (I-CARE) Group.
Elli L, Marinoni B, Sidhu R, et al. 13.07.2022
Background: Villous atrophy is an indication for small bowel capsule endoscopy (SBCE). However, SBCE findings are not described uniformly and atrophic features are sometimes not recognized; However, SBCE findings are not described uniformly and atrophic features are sometimes not recognized;
Small bowel capsule endoscopy in obscure gastrointestinal bleeding: A matched cohort comparison of patients with normal vs surgically altered gastric anatomy.
Dray X, Rahmi G, Riccioni ME, et al. 04.04.2022
Background: Little is known about small bowel capsule endoscopy (SBCE) outcomes in patients with surgically altered anatomy.
Aims: To assess the feasibility and diagnostic yield of orally ingested SBCE to investigate obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (OGIB) in patients with surgically altered gastric anatomy, compared to native gastric anatomy.
PEACE: Perception and Expectations toward Artificial Intelligence in Capsule Endoscopy.
Leenhardt R, Fernandez-Urien Sainz I, Rondonotti E, et al. 06.12.2021
Artificial intelligence (AI) has shown promising results in digestive endoscopy, especially in capsule endoscopy (CE). However, some physicians still have some difficulties and fear the advent of this technology. We aimed to evaluate the perceptions and current sentiments toward the use of AI in CE.
Feasibility and diagnostic yield of small-bowel capsule endoscopy in patients with surgically altered gastric anatomy: the SAGA study.
Dray X, Riccioni ME, Wurm Johansson G, et al. 20.04.2021
Background and aims: Little is known about small-bowel (SB) capsule endoscopy (CE) in patients with a history of gastric surgery. This study aims to evaluate the feasibility and diagnostic yield (DY) of orally ingested SB-CE in patients with surgically altered gastric anatomy.
A guide for assessing the clinical relevance of findings in small bowel capsule endoscopy: analysis of 8064 answers of international experts to an illustrated script questionnaire.
Leenhardt R, Koulaouzidis A, McNamara D, et al. 28.01.2021
Background and aim: Although recommended, the P-score used for assessing the pertinence / relevance of findings seen in small bowel (SB) capsule endoscopy (CE) is based on a low level of knowledge. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical relevance of the most frequent SBCE findings through an illustrated script questionnaire.
Nomenclature and semantic descriptions of ulcerative and inflammatory lesions seen in Crohn’s disease in small bowel capsule endoscopy: An international Delphi consensus statement.
Leenhardt R, Buisson A, Bourreille A, et al. 08.02.2020
Background: In the medical literature, the nomenclature and descriptions (ND) of small bowel (SB) ulcerative and inflammatory (U-I) lesions in capsule endoscopy (CE) are scarce and inconsistent. Inter-observer variability in interpreting these findings remains a major limitation in the assessment of the severity of mucosal lesions, which can impact negatively on clinical care, training and research on SB-CE.
Nomenclature and semantic description of vascular lesions in small bowel capsule endoscopy: an international Delphi consensus statement.
Leenhardt R, Li C, Koulaouzidis A, et al. 28.02.2019
Background and study aims: Nomenclature and descriptions of small bowel (SB) vascular lesions in capsule endoscopy (CE) are scarce in the medical literature. They are mostly based on the reader's opinion and thus differ between experts, with a potential negative impact on clinical care, teaching and research regarding SBCE. Our aim was to better define a nomenclature and to give a description of the most frequent vascular lesions in SBCE.
