History of endoscopic devices for the exploration of the small bowel

Price: €10,00

Abstract The small bowel has gained new attention since the development of the wireless videocapsule in 2000, opening up the last ‘black box’ of the gastrointestinal tract. Although conventional push enteroscopy has been available for decades, since the wireless videocapsule new enteroscopes have been developed to examine the entire small bowel endoscopically in order to perform all conventional endoscopic procedures. The present review highlights the historic evolution of enteroscopy, from the first complete enteroscopy in 1971 over the current balloon-assisted and overtube- guided methods of enteroscopy to future directions of evolutions towards perfection.

The Maastricht III consensus : summary and comments

Price: €10,00

Abstract The management of Helicobacter pylori infection as been readapted to recent information which resulted in new guidelines that were published in 2007 in Gut. Iron deficiency anemia with negative work up and idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura were added to the indications for treatment while the known ones were reconfirmed. Much interest went to prevention of gastric cancer and treatment. In the prevention of gastric cancer the importance of treating infected individuals before the appearance of premalignant lesions was highlighted. The most important problem concerning treatment is the increasing resistance for clarithromycin with as a consequence a decreasing efficiency of the classical therapy. Alternatives are discussed and results of resistance for different antibiotics in Belgium are presented. (Acta gastro enterol. belg., 2009, 72, 344-349). [Product Details...]
