    3. Volumetric laser endomicroscopy in the management of Barrett's esophagus

      Volumetric laser endomicroscopy in the management of Barrett's esophagus
      Purpose of review: The incidence of esophageal adenocarcinoma is on the rise despite widespread appreciation that the precursor lesion is Barrett's esophagus. Studies have shown that some patients known to have Barrett's esophagus develop cancer despite their enrollment in conventional endoscopic surveillance programs. This highlights the need for advanced endoscopic imaging to help identify early neoplasia and prevent its progression to esophageal cancer. Recently, a wide-field, second-generation optical ...

    4. Volumetric laser endomicroscopy in Barrett’s esophagus: interobserver agreement for interpretation of Barrett’s esophagus and associated neoplasia among high-frequency users

      Volumetric laser endomicroscopy in Barrett’s esophagus: interobserver agreement for interpretation of Barrett’s esophagus and associated neoplasia among high-frequency users
      Abstract Background and Aims Targeting neoplasia in Barretts esophagus (BE) is challenging. Volumetric laser endomicroscopy (VLE) is a new imaging technique that allows for real time cross-sectional microstructure imaging that can detect BE neoplasia. The interobserver agreement among users in practice is unknown. Methods Eight high-volume users of VLE from different academic centers in the United States evaluated 120-stored VLE images blinded to the endoscopic and clinical findings. There were ...

    5. The new kid on the block for advanced imaging in Barrett’s esophagus: a review of volumetric laser endomicroscopy

      The new kid on the block for advanced imaging in Barrett’s esophagus: a review of volumetric laser endomicroscopy
      Advanced imaging techniques used in the management of Barretts esophagus include electronic imaging enhancement (e.g. narrow band imaging, flexible spectral imaging color enhancement, and i-Scan), chromoendoscopy, and confocal laser endomicroscopy. Electronic imaging enhancement is used frequently in daily practice, but use of the other advanced technologies is not routine. High-definition white light endoscopy and random four quadrant biopsy remain the standard of care for evaluation of Barretts esophagus; this ...

    6. Volumetric laser endomicroscopy can target neoplasia not detected by conventional endoscopic measures in long segment Barrett’s esophagus

      Volumetric laser endomicroscopy can target neoplasia not detected by conventional endoscopic measures in long segment Barrett’s esophagus
      Methods and study aims: The incidence of esophageal cancer is rising despite increased surveillance efforts. Volumetric laser endomicroscopy (VLE) is a new endoscopic imaging tool that can allow for targeted biopsy of neoplasia in Barretts esophagus. We report a series of 6 patients with long-segment Barretts esophagus ( 3 cm), who underwent a session of endoscopy with volumetric laser endomicroscopy, after a separate prior session of standard high-definition endoscopy with narrow ...

    7. Finding a needle in a haystack: use of volumetric laser endomicroscopy in targeting focal dysplasia in long-segment Barrett’s esophagus

      Finding a needle in a haystack: use of volumetric laser endomicroscopy in targeting focal dysplasia in long-segment Barrett’s esophagus
      A 64-year-old man underwent esophagoscopy 15 months earlier, which diagnosed long-segment Barretts esophagus. Examination of random biopsy specimens yielded a diagnosis of intestinal metaplasia, with 1 biopsy specimen as indefinite for dysplasia. Two subsequent esophagoscopies were performed 6 months apart, and random biopsy specimens were negative for dysplasia. The patient was referred for volumetric laser endomicroscopy (VLE) (NVisionVLE, NinePoint Medical, Cambridge, Mass). At esophagoscopy, high-definition white-light endoscopy showed a 7-cm ...

    1. When compared to a standard random biopsy protocol, VLE with laser marking yielded a statistically significant increase in the detection of dysplasia”..In addition, VLE with laser marking may enable more accurate targeting for biopsies and endoscopic resection, which should allow pathologists to detect more dysplasia. These promising results support the use of VLE with laser marking for the surveillance of Barrett’s esophagus in academic centers, and should be further studied prospectively for validation, as well as in the community hospital setting.
