    Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection Enough to Cure Early Gastric Cancer?

    Vanessa M. Shami, MD, FASGE reviewing Waki K, et al. Gastrointest Endosc 2021 Dec 31.

    Over the past decade, with advances in endoscopic resection (ER) techniques, there has been a trend toward removing early gastric cancer (EGC) with ER, especially in older patients who may have an elevated risk of surgical adverse events. This single-center retrospective study aimed to examine outcomes and overall survival of patients aged 75 years or older who underwent ER for EGC. Additionally, the investigators determined factors to identify optimal patients for this technique.

    Cancer Risk in Serrated Polyposis Syndrome and Sporadic Sessile Serrated Lesion Patients and Their Relatives

    Douglas K. Rex, MD, MASGE reviewing Kanth P, et al. Am J Gastroenterol 2021 Dec 10.

    Patients with serrated polyposis syndrome (SPS) or sporadic sessile serrated lesions (SSLs) have an increased risk of colorectal cancer, but the extent of cancer risk in relatives of these patients is not well known. This study used the Utah Cancer Registry to examine cancer risk in patients with SPS and their relatives as well as patients with SSLs and their relatives.

    A Way Forward for Side-Viewing Colonoscopy?

    Douglas K. Rex, MD, MASGE reviewing Troya J, et al. Gastrointest Endosc 2021 Dec 17.

    Previous attempts to improve polyp detection during colonoscopy using extreme wide-angle or side-viewing optics have been unsuccessful, largely because of issues with diminished image resolution and the inability of most colonoscopists to observe multiple screens simultaneously. This study explored a new concept of combining side-view optics and artificial intelligence for colonoscopy.

    Exploring Panendoscopy With a Colon Capsule: Issues of Bowel Preparation, Transit, Completion, Acceptance

    Douglas K. Rex, MD, MASGE reviewing Vuik FER, et al. Endosc Int Open 2021 Dec.

    Colon capsule endoscopy has the potential to be used as a diagnostic tool for the entire gastrointestinal tract. This study evaluated the technical success and acceptance of panendoscopy with a colon capsule in generally healthy adults aged 50 to 75 years.

    How to Manage Pouchitis: a Consensus Guideline From Global Pouch Consortium

    Gursimran S. Kochhar, MD reviewing Shen B, et al. Lancet Gastroenterol Hepatol 2022 Jan.

    Pouchitis and other diseases of the ileal pouch, also known as the J pouch, have always been very challenging to manage. The lack of large randomized controlled trials has added to the dilemma of treating pouchitis and other associated diseases. The International Ileal Pouch Consortium recently published consensus guidelines to help physicians treat pouchitis.
