Abstract

Wireless capsule endoscopy is an exciting and innovative technology that allows direct visualization of areas of the small bowel that were previously inaccessible to the "umbilicated" endoscope except during intraoperative enteroscopy. The wireless capsule endoscope permits noninvasive small bowel endoscopy in the ambulatory setting and has been proven to be a significant advance in the evaluation of patients with challenging small intestinal disease.
