Abstract

BACKGROUND:: Indications to double-balloon enteroscopy (DBE) are not standardized in celiac disease (CD). GOALS:: To evaluate the clinical usefulness of DBE in complicated CD. STUDY:: DBE findings in celiac patients with suspected small bowel (SB) complications were retrospectively evaluated in 2 tertiary referral centers (Milan and Sheffield). Demographic data of the studied cohort were compared with a database of 1000 noncomplicated CD patients. RESULTS:: Twenty-four CD cases (12 males, P=0.01 vs. controls) were reviewed. Mean age at CD diagnosis (y±SD) was 37±20 versus 27±18 and at SB evaluation 47±15 versus 38±13 (P
