Abstract

BACKGROUND:

the relationship between small bowel transit time (SBTT) of the capsule endoscopy (CE) and the diagnosis of small bowel bleeding (SBB) is controversial.

OBJECTIVE:

to evaluate the relationship between SBTT and CE and the identification of SBB.

MATERIAL AND METHODS:

CE was divided according to SBTT into < 4 hours and ≥ 4 hours.

RESULTS:

CE with SBTT ≥ 4 hours identified more angioectasias (p = 0.023), single lesions (p = 0.029) and jejunal lesions (p = 0.001) with an OR of 3.13 (95% CI, 1.61-6.10, p = 0.001) to identify the cause of SBB.

CONCLUSIONS:

CE SBTT of ≥ 4 hours increases the diagnosis of SBB.
