Abstract

The past decade has seen significant advances in the evaluation of the small bowel, long considered as the "black box" in gastroenterology. The development of several endoscopic techniques, including capsule endoscopy (CE) and double (DBE)- and single (SBE)-balloon enteroscopy, has improved the evaluation of this part of the gut and led to reach a more precise preoperative diagnosis of small-bowel tumors. These rare tumors were previously diagnosed only after laparotomy, although laparoscopic advanced surgery can be used for minimally invasive therapeutic approach in these patients. This study was designed to evaluate the diagnostic and therapeutic impact of endoscopic procedures on small-bowel tumors.
