What's going on here? The problem may be in the small intestine.
Let's start by looking at the composition of the entire gut. It is about 8 to 9 meters long, of which 4 to 6 meters is the small intestine, the small intestine includes the duodenum, jejunum, ileum, and the convoluted structure.
As a result, the small intestine has become a "distant place" rarely touched during gastrointestinal endoscopy.
In general, if you want to examine the small intestine, you can only use a gastroscope to examine it from the mouth down to the duodenum. The colonoscopy was changed, and after entering the endoscope from the anus, it was examined up to the cecum at most. So that the middle section of the "colorful intestines", gastrointestinal endoscopy are more than enough and insufficient.
Capsule enteroscopy is a method for small intestine examination, which can visually observe the lesions in the small intestine. The so-called capsule colonoscopy is a miniaturized video camera implanted into a medical capsule. After the subject swallowes it with water, the capsule enteroscopy enters the body, takes pictures at a fixed frequency, and sends the images back to the doctor. Like the Dashong ® Capsule Colonoscopy, it is a small, smooth-looking capsule that is only 26.5mm long.
During the formal examination, the subject only needs to wear the image receiving device (i.e., abdominal belt) and swallow the small capsule with water. It is as simple as taking ordinary medicine, so that a painless, non-invasive, comfortable and free intestinal examination can be carried out.
Capsule colonoscopy not only requires no intubation and no anesthesia, but also can be performed immediately, with little impact on daily life and work. After the medical staff confirms the correct connection of the equipment, the subject can leave the hospital. Be careful not to do some strenuous exercise similar to running and cycling, and enter the strong magnetic field environment (specifically follow the doctor's advice), so that the examination effect will not be affected.
After the capsule travels, the patient takes off the abdominal belt and gives it to the doctor, who sends back the images to issue a report. The colonoscopy capsule will eventually be excreted in the stool, comfortable, relaxed and free, do colonoscopy no longer need to fear the endoscope!
The following groups need for bowel examination
1. Patients with chronic diarrhea
2. Patients with alternating diarrhea and constipation
3. Patients with fecal deformation
4. Patients with recent sudden constipation
5. Patients with high risk factors of hematochezia
6, for patients with definite nature of intestinal lesions
As an important, novel and effective gastrointestinal diagnostic technology, Dasheng ® capsule colonoscopy is especially suitable for health examination, small intestinal disease diagnosis and early tumor screening.
① Unexplained gastrointestinal bleeding
② Unexplained iron deficiency anemia
③ Monitoring the development of small intestinal polyposis syndrome
④ Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaids) -related small intestinal mucosal damage was detected
⑤ Patients with small intestinal diseases should be excluded clinically
⑥ Suspected small intestinal tumor
⑦ Suspected or difficult to control malabsorption syndromes (e.g., celiac disease)
⑧ Suspected Crohn's disease or monitoring and guiding the treatment of Crohn's disease
⑨ Physical examination of GI tract
