Resumen

Gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding accounts for 1,000,000 hospitalizations annually; 10% of these are attributed to obscure GI bleeding (OGIB). Traditionally these have been evaluated with conventional antegrade and retrograde endoscopy. Subsequent to negative conventional examinations, most practitioners are unsure of the next best steps to evaluate and manage OGIB in the hospitalized patient. In this article, we deal with the role of evolving technologies in the classic paradigm of the traditional approach to OGIB in the hospitalized patient.
