Noninvasive Procedures Show Promise for Esophageal Bleeding
Date:5/6/2008

re cost-effective.

The studies were published in the May issue of Hepatology.

The studies showed that both capsule endoscopy and CT could be good screening tools, but neither method showed adequate sensitivity for detecting large varices, Didier Lebrec, of the Hopital Beaujon, and colleagues wrote in an accompanying editorial.

"One third of patients with large varices would have been misdiagnosed by CT, and sensitivity for the capsule was only 78 percent, which is insufficient," they wrote. "Therefore replacing endoscopy with one of these two techniques would result in more misdiagnosed patients with large varices, which is not reasonable."
