Abstract: The duodenum at 30-60 days of gestation is a solid tube that is later recanalized. When this process is interrupted, there may be a total absence of recanalization leading to duodenal atresia (50% of cases) or incomplete recanalization leading to duodenal stenosis (10% of cases). When this process is interrupted, duodenal atresia (absence of recanalization) occurs in 50% of cases or duodenal stenosis in 10% (incomplete recanalization). The causal mechanism is unknown, although it is believed that the entry of the pancreatic and bile ducts may affect recanalization, which would explain the location of the stenosis at the level of the ampulla of Vater

Abstract: Endoscopic biopsies may be taken as single or double bite. In the former method intubation time may be proportionately prolonged depending upon the number of biopsies. In contrast to this, in the latter approach, although, a greater number of biopsies may be taken per unit time, equally, it may have effect on the quality of the biopsy specimen. This is because there is a perception that taking biopsies in such a manner may lead to crush artifacts and difficulty with orientation of the
