Bowel trouble? DBE helps avoid surgery 16.8.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
Double Balloon Enteroscopy (DBE) has transformed endoscopic evaluation of the small intestine by allowing access to areas beyond the reach of conventional endoscopes. DBE is a 200 cm-long endoscope with two balloons attached to it. Unlike conventional push enteroscopy, which stretches and lengthens the patient's bowel as the endoscope advances, DBE uses a push-and-pull technique that effectively shortens the intestine. This is achieved by alternately inflating and deflating two balloons — one mounted on a plastic overtube fitted over the endoscope and the other on the scope's distal end — which pleat the intestine over the enteroscope as it progresses step-wise through the small bowel. DBE procedures are usually carried out in hospital as day cases. You will probably be offered general anaesthetic, sedatives and/or painkillers to make you more comfortable while the DBE is carried out. The DBE will either be inserted through the patient's mouth or anus, depending on which part of his or her ...
