Endoscopy in Hematologic Malignancies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Patients with hematological malignancies present many unique challenges to the gastroenterologist. Myelosuppression creates an environment that increases risk of infections and bleeding. Treatment can lead to complications that are rare in other populations, such as neutropenic enterocolitis and graft-versus-host disease. Nevertheless, the literature argues that endoscopy can play both a diagnostic and therapeutic role without excessive risk. The current evidence is reviewed and guidelines are provided to assist the clinician in their approach to these patients. This edition first published 2013
