    Abstract : Video capsule endoscopy (VCE), perfomed by ingesting a small vitamin-sized camera pill, was developed over a period of a couple of decades and –since its introduction in clinical practice at the dawn of the millennium– has become an essential tool in the diagnosis and management of small bowel (SB) diseases. At the same time, other fields such as minimally invasive diagnosis of other parts of the gastointestinal (GI) tract has been or is currently explored as future applications of this technology.

    Abstract : Introduction: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with an increased risk of stroke, heart failure and cardiovascular death. Initial treatment focuses on rhythm or rate control and anticoagulation after risk assessment. Catheter abla-tion (CA) is an option in highly symptomatic patients but is less effective in long-standing persistent AF(LSPAF). READ MORE

    Abstract : Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is a hereditary disorder caused by mutations in the adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) gene, which leads to adenoma formation and subsequently to cancer, predominantly in the colon and the rectum but also in the duodenum. The cancer morbidity and mortality can be decreased by presymtomatic screening and surgical treatment. READ MORE
