There is a broad spectrum of clinical problems that demand urgent attention and intervention by gastroenterologists. With recent expansion of armamentarium of devices and techniques for therapeutic endoscopy, there has been significant evolution of practices in this area. The focus of this issue will be on the endoscopic aspects of these emergencies, but will include clinical evaluation, and related medical and surgical management as well. We have assembled a world-class group of authors with expertise in individual areas. Dr Peter Stevens will cover triage and endoscopic management of acute nonvariceal hemorrhage, with emphasis on newer techniques of endoscopic hemostasis including clips as well as traditional thermal and injection therapies. Dr Arun Sanyal will review the medical and therapeutic endoscopic aspects of portal hypertensive bleeding. Dr Brenna Bounds will detail the emerging techniques and current approach to acute lower GI hemorrhage, including role of urgent colonoscopy, and adaptation of newer techniques for endoscopic hemostasis including clips and band ligation. Dr Todd Baron will cover management of acute colonic obstruction with particular emphasis on placement of colonic stents. Dr Michael Saunders will discuss medical and endoscopic management of colonic pseudoobstruction with emphasis on medical management of role of colonoscopic decompression. In the area of pancreaticobiliary emergencies, the role of endoscopic intervention for acute biliary and other forms of pancreatitis will be detailed by Dr Paul Tarnasky. Acute cholangitis and the role of ERCP will be discussed by Dr Tim Kinney. Dr XX (works with Dr Roy Wong) will discuss management of foreign body and food impaction, with emphasis on some of the newer devices and overtubes to facilitate safe extraction. Dr David Greenwald will cover the management of endoscopically-induced complications such as bleeding and perforation. Finally, the particulars of the pediatric approach to endoscopic emergencies in children and infants, and the approach to caustic ingestions will be reviewed by Dr Khalid Khan.
