 Endoscopic diagnosis of small-intenstinal diseases has been improved dramatically by the development of balloon endoscopy and videocapsule endoscopy. These new modalities have also revealed that vascular lesions are the leading cause of small-intestinal bleeding. Although it is essential for diagnosis to select an appropriate method and timing in order to detect vascular lesions, the standardized criteria need to be agreed upon among medical facilities or guidelines. It is nessesary to understand the clinical features of vascular lesions such as types of lesion and frequently affected locations. It is important to accumulate cases and understand the pathophysiology of these diseases. Moreover, establishment of a diagnostic method and definitive treatment is required.
