The capsule is placed inside the transparent hood using the same tilt angles for both the endoscopic image and the CE image. Since the endoscopic image is blinded by the capsule, while watching the CE image using the RAPID® real-time
viewer, the endoscope with the capsule is advanced through the pharynx, esophagus, stomach and into the duodenum. The capsule is then released into the duodenum by injecting water through the accessory channel. Results: Six patients underwent successful endoscopic placement of the capsule in the duodenum without complications. In one patient, biopsy forceps were needed to eject the CP-868596 capsule, because the capsule didn’t release after injecting water. The mean time required for the capsule to pass from the pharynx through the pylorus was five minutes. A complete small bowel examination was achieved in all six patients. Since the currently available CE (PillCam® SB2) check details provides two frames per second,
the endoscopy operator may sense a time lag between endoscopic maneuvering and viewing the CE images. However, this will improve when using a newer version of the CE with adaptive frame rate technology. Conclusion: Endoscope placement of the CE using the described method for patients with dysphagia, anatomical abnormality, or gastroparesis is safe and effective. Key Word(s): 1.

To 上海皓元 reduce the volume ingested, PEG-ELS plus ascorbic acid (Asc) (MOVIPREP®) has been marketed in Europe and North America and is the world’s most frequently administered bowel preparation. In Japan, MOVIPREP® was finally put on the market last year, however, preparation procedure in Japan is different from in Europe and North America, and there has not been so much experience yet in Japan. Therefore, we assessed the efficacy and safety of bowel preparation using PEG-ELS+Asc for screening CS. Methods: Design: an observational open-label study. 229 consecutive examinee of CS for medical checkup were enrolled at our institute. The mean age was 60.3 years old and 167 were male (72.9%). Preparation agent used: MOVIPREP® approved in Japan is slightly modified from that used in Europe and North America. Macrogol (PEG) 3350, one of the main active ingredients of MOVIPREP®, is replaced by Macrogol 4000 in accordance with Japanese Pharmacopoeia.
