Abstract

The last decade has seen significant advances in the evaluation of the small bowel. Several endoscopic techniques have been developed in recent years: capsule endoscopy (CE), double-balloon enteroscopy (DBE), and, more recently, the single-balloon enteroscopy (SBE). The aim of this study was to evaluate diagnostic and therapeutic impact, safety, and feasibility of the SBE procedure after a 3-year experience.
