About this Research Topic
The field of pediatric gastroenterology and endoscopy is expanding. The combination of better equipment, devoted to pediatric patients, increased demand, advanced training, and better skills together with better sedation leads to more experience, improved outcome, and the option to “catch up” with procedures that were limited to adults. Recently, two ESPGHAN (European Society for Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition) guidelines devoted to pediatric endoscopy were published. One on general topics and one related to endoscopy in inflammatory bowel disease.
To update the advances in different aspects of pediatric endoscopy (different aspects of sedation, specialized equipment, endoscopy for special conditions (Inflammatory bowel disease, eosinophilic esophagitis), endoscopic training, management of caustic ingestions, foreign bodies, bowel preparation for colonoscopy and any other related aspect).
