Reason for Referral:
A 55 year old male presented with a two year history of intermittent left upper quadrant abdominal pain. The pain would come on at random or associated with exercise. It was described as a squeezing pain that would last at least thirty minutes and up to two hours. He would have nausea and vomiting associated with the pain but would be asymptomatic in between episodes. He denied any weight loss or change in bowel movements. An EGD and colonoscopy were performed which were normal. A capsule endoscopy was performed to rule out a possible small bowel lesion.
Gastric Passage Time: 0h 43m
Small Bowel Passage Time: 4h 29m
Procedure Info and Findings:
After obtaining informed consent, including the risks of capsule retention, the patient swallowed the capsule without difficulty. The preparation was adequate, and the study completed without complication. A full examination of the small bowel was completed.
