 Endoscopic diagnosis and treatment of small bowel diseases have been a dark continent thus far. With the advent of wireless capsule endoscopy and double balloon endoscopy, a field of endoscopic diagnosis for small intestinal diseases has been significantly advanced. As the effectiveness and safety of endoscopic treatment, using double balloon endoscopy, have been widely recognized, there is a shift from the era of push enteroscopy and intraoperative endoscopy to an era of double balloon endoscopy for the endoscopic treatment of small intestinal diseases. We shall describe endoscopic hemostasis, endoscopic dilation, stent placement, polypectomy, and endoscopic mucosal resection, using double balloon endoscopy.
