However, more well-designed clinical trials and more studies on the cost effectiveness of CE are needed to determine its usefulness in SBD other than OGIB and CD. Key Word(s): 1. capsule endoscopy; 2. small bowel diseases; 3. Selleckchem ACP-196 diagnosis; 4. HTA;

However, the EGG is the sum of the whole gastric myoelectrical activity, and the serosal recording is impractical for most clinical applications. Mucosal recording has been studied rarely, but it can be endoscopy-guided and exhibit the potential for acquiring slow wave activity from different regions of the stomach. In this study, we utilize a novel method for recording slow waves from specific mucosal sites during gastroscopy. Methods: twenty patients with gastric submucosal tumor underwent gastroscopy under anesthesia. Three improved zebra guide wires were directed to the antrum, the middle corpus and the junction of fudus and corpus along the greater curvatures. Then they were fixed by titanium clip. A cutaneous electrode was attached
on the midpoint between xyphoid and umbilical. Multichannel Oxymatrine record (Polygraf ID®, Medtronic A/S, Denmark) was applied. Dominant frequencies and dominant power
from concurrent mucosal and cutaneous EGG recordings were compared. Selleckchem p38 MAPK inhibitor Results: A total duration of 346 min was taken. There was no difference between dominant frequencies at the fundus (3.12 ± 0.57 cpm), corpus (3.12 ± 0.53 cpm), antrum (3.10 ± 0.57 cpm) and the skin (3.12 ± 0.56 cpm) (P > 0.05). The dominant power of mucosal region was higher than skin. Conclusion: This method is effective and provides insight into the mechanisms of action of gastric slow wave. Key Word(s): 1.

Methods: Data of 24 patients with esophageal GISTs, who underwent ESD/STER, were reviewed in terms of personal situation, location and size of lesions, clinical manifestation, managements, pathology, complications and follow up findings. Results: The esophageal GISTs were more common in patients over 50 years and in males. They were more common in the lower portion, less in the middle region and rare in the upper part.
