We are reporting on the 'FLIP device' and give you an update on the likely aetiology of achalasia. There have been studies on 'motorised spiral enteroscopy'. Is a motor really a good thing inside the small bowel? e are surprised to see a complete turnaround in the recommendations from Sheffield on how to diagnose Coeliac disease ! Sadly, surveillance in patients with MUTyH related polyposis doesn't seem to save lives. Should we all start doing 'full thickness' colonic resections? I urge caution! Finally, there have been some good news and some bad news on the topic of emergency GI bleeding ..
