Brief Summary:

Study design Prospective bicentric non-controlled clinical trial

Study purpose

- to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Novel Motorized Spiral Enteroscopy (NMSE) for total enteroscopy in patients with suspected small bowel diseases with an indication for direct visualization of the entire small bowel

Primary objective

Rate of total enteroscopy by means of NMSE with:

  1. a complete anterograde approach
  2. or a combined anterograde and retrograde approach

Secondary objectives

  • Procedural success of anterograde and retrograde approach
  • Procedural time (minutes)
  • Depth of maximum insertion (cm)
  • Diagnostic yield
  • Therapeutic yield
  • Adverse events

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Small Bowel Disease Procedure: Motorized Spiral Enteroscopy Not Applicable

Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: Total Motorized Spiral Enteroscopy Trial
Estimated Study Start Date : February 21, 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date : February 21, 2019
Estimated Study Completion Date : February 28, 2019

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Motorized Spiral Enteroscopy
Patients with indication for total enteroscopy. day1: anterograde motorized spiral enteroscopy, day 2: retrograde motorized spiral enteroscopy
Procedure: Motorized Spiral Enteroscopy
Motorized Spiral endoscope will be inserted and advanced with the assistance of motorized clockwise spiral rotation, After reaching the cecum or if no further advancement of the endoscope can be achieved depth of insertion required for patient treatment or diagnosis, the endoscope will be withdrawn using motorized counter-clockwise spiral rotation, also controlled by the foot pedal. If no total enteroscopy was achieved, a submucosal ink dye injection is performed as an endoscopically visible marker of the maximum insertion depth. A retrograde peranal enteroscopy is then performed on one of the following days.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Rate of total enteroscopy by Motorized Spiral Enteroscopy [ Time Frame: 2 days ]

    Total enteroscopy by:

    1. a complete anterograde approach
    2. or a combined anterograde and retrograde approach

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Procedural Success Rate [ Time Frame: 2 days ]
    of anterograde and retrograde approach

  2. Procedural time [ Time Frame: 2 days ]
    of anterograde and retrograde approach

  3. Depth of maximum insertion to the small bowel [ Time Frame: 2 days ]
    anterograde and retrograde

  4. Diagnostic yield [ Time Frame: 2 days ]
    anterograde and retrograde

  5. Therapeutic yield [ Time Frame: 2 days ]
    anterograde and retrograde

  6. Adverse events [ Time Frame: 3 days ]
    anterograde and retrograde, serious adverse events
