Comparison of 231 patients receiving either "pull-through" or "push" percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy.
Surg Endosc
PUBLISHED: 01-30-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
A percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) can be performed as a direct stomach puncture, known as Seldinger technique ("push") or a thread pulling method ("pull"). The aim of this study was to compare the final results deriving from both application methods.

Endoscopic grading of the gastroesophageal flap valve is correlated with reflux activity and can predict the size of the esophageal hiatus in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease.
Surg Endosc
PUBLISHED: 03-29-2013
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Endoscopic grading of the gastroesophageal flap valve (GEFV) is simple, reproducible, and suggested to be a good predictor of reflux activity. This study aimed to investigate the potential correlation between grading of the GEFV and quality of life (QoL), gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) symptoms, esophageal manometry, multichannel intraluminal impedance monitoring (MII) data, and size of the hiatal defect.

Efficacy of using a novel endoscopic lens cleaning device: a prospective randomized controlled trial.

Hide Abstract
Clear visualization of the surgical field is critical in laparoscopic surgery. The authors evaluated a device that does not necessitate an external cleaning process for the laparoscope. It was hypothesized that it will minimize the interruption in operative workflow.

A natural orifice transrectal approach for oncologic resection of the rectosigmoid: an experimental study and comparison with conventional laparoscopy.
Surg Endosc
PUBLISHED: 02-11-2011
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
A transrectal (TR) approach for natural orifice translumenal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) makes sense for colorectal surgery because the colotomy can be incorporated into subsequent anastomosis. Because cancer is a primary indication for left-sided colon resection, oncologic standards will have to be met by a NOTES procedure. This study aimed to assess whether pure TR rectosigmoidectomy can be performed with strict adherence to oncologic principles compared with a conventional laparoscopically assisted approach (LAP).

Transcervical heller myotomy using flexible endoscopy.
J. Gastrointest. Surg.
PUBLISHED: 02-22-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Esophageal achalasia is most commonly treated by laparoscopic myotomy. Transesophageal approaches using flexible endoscopy have recently been described. We hypothesized that using techniques and flexible instruments from our NOTES experience through a small cervical incision would be a safer and less traumatic route for esophageal myotomy. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility, safety, and success rate of using flexible endoscopes to perform anterior or posterior Heller myotomy via a transcervical approach.

A comparison of early learning curves for complex bimanual coordination with open, laparoscopic, and flexible endoscopic instrumentation.
Surg Endosc
PUBLISHED: 02-21-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
This study takes an initial step towards understanding the learning process of flexible endoscopic surgery. Bimanual coordination learning curves were contrasted between three different surgical paradigms. We hypothesized that use of an open or laparoscopic paradigm would result in better performance and a shorter learning process (reaching a learning plateau earlier) than an endoscopic paradigm.

Clinical experience with a multifunctional, flexible surgery system for endolumenal, single-port, and NOTES procedures.
Surg Endosc
PUBLISHED: 01-20-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Single-port and incisionless surgical approaches hold the promise of fewer complications, reduced pain, faster recovery, and improved cosmesis compared with traditional open or laparoscopic approaches. The ability to select an access approach (i.e., endolumenal, single-port, transvaginal, or transgastric) with one platform may be important to optimization of individual patient results. The authors report their results using these four separate surgical approaches tailored to three different therapeutic procedures, all with the use of a single flexible platform, the Incisionless Operating Platform (IOP).

Use of flexible endoscopes for NOTES: sterilization or high-level disinfection?
Surg Endosc
PUBLISHED: 10-30-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Natural orifice translumenal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) involves the use of flexible endoscopes to perform intra-abdominal or intra-thoracic surgeries. Surgery in the operating room usually involves sterile instrumentation, whereas in the endoscopy suite high-level disinfection seems to be sufficient. Our objective was to assess the necessity for endoscope sterilization for clinical NOTES and to develop an endoscope processing protocol based on a score for the available processing options.

The devices used for natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery procedures are endoscopes or inspired by endoscopic design, which makes it difficult to accomplish bimanual coordination.

Future applications of flexible endoscopy in esophageal surgery.
J. Gastrointest. Surg.
PUBLISHED: 03-04-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Flexible endoscopy has long played a role in esophageal surgery, and procedures like perforation closure, stenting of occluding malignancies, antireflux procedures, and removal of Barretts are increasingly replacing open and laparoscopic procedures. We present early results of a series of acute animal experiments studying the feasibility of using flexible endoscopes for complex esophageal surgery such as Heller myotomy and esophagectomy.

Measuring mental workload during the performance of advanced laparoscopic tasks.
Surg Endosc
PUBLISHED: 02-19-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Mental workload is a finite resource and is increased while learning new tasks and performing complex tasks. Measurement of a surgeons mental workload may therefore be an indication of expertise. We hypothesized that surgeons who were expert at laparoscopic suturing would have more spare mental resources to perform a secondary task, compared with surgeons who had just started to learn suturing.

A multitasking platform for natural orifice translumenal endoscopic surgery (NOTES): a benchtop comparison of a new device for flexible endoscopic surgery and a standard dual-channel endoscope.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
A unique endoscopic platform with two independent end-effectors, each with five degrees of freedom, and an ergonomic user interface has been developed to address the needs of complex endolumenal and natural orifice translumenal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) procedures. This study aimed to measure the amount this new platform would improve performance for bimanual coordination compared with a standard dual-channel scope using a benchtop simulation.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
