 With the development of double balloon endoscopy(DBE), which can intubate the small intestine deeply, even small lesions can be observed and treated endoscopically. Recently, single balloon endoscopy(SBE) which has just one balloon on the tip of the overtube has also been developed. In addition to the spread of balloon endoscopy, peripherals and treatment tools, such as carbon dioxide(CO2)insufflation system, and argon plasma coagulation(APC)probes for these endoscopes have also been developed.

 Moreover, therapeutic algorithms for various small intestinal diseases have been changed by the development of DBE. Small vascular lesions and non-invasive tumors, which have formerly been treated surgically or conservatively, can now be treated endoscopically.
