Abstract

The present study aimed to determine the diagnostic yield of OMOM capsule endoscopy for small bowel diseases in adults. A total of 89 patients, including 45 cases of obscure abdominal pain, 22 of chronic diarrhea, 18 of obscure gastrointestinal bleeding and 4 of obscure anemia were enrolled in the present study. The transit time of the endoscopy capsule in the digestive tract was recorded and the testing results were analyzed. All detections were completed except for four capsule retentions and the completion rate was 95.51%. The average transit time of the endoscopy capsule in the esophagus, stomach and small intestine was 62.18±64.23 sec, 67.46±63.13 and 346.53±102.81 min, respectively. Of the 89 patients, 54 (60.67%) were found to have lesions, among which 19 had mucosal erosion (21.35%), 15 had anabrosis (16.85%), 9 were diagnosed with polyps (10.11%), 5 with angiodysplasia (5.62%); furthermore, tumors were identified in 5 patients (5.62%) and ancylostomiasis in 1 patient (1.12%). The results confirmed the feasibility and validity of OMOM capsule endoscopy for diagnosing small bowel diseases in adults.
