This is particularly relevant as recently there has been a shift in the treatment paradigm from clinical response (resolution of symptoms) to biological response (resolution of serological or faecal biomarkers) and especially mucosal healing. The latter has been associated with hard endpoints in patients with CD, such as prolonged remission, fewer hospitalizations and surgeries [30–32]. Finally, VCE can be utilized to detect post-surgical recurrence in patients who have undergone small bowel resection.
It has to be acknowledged that diagnostic yield is not equivalent to a positive diagnosis and, therefore, although capsule endoscopy has very high sensitivity for small bowel lesions, the significance of all these abnormalities is unclear. Overall, most studies suggest that VCE has superior sensitivity for the detection of small bowel CD compared with other radiologic studies, with variable specificity. In contrast, cross-sectional imaging studies provide useful information regarding mural and extra-mural pathology such as fistulas, abscesses, masses or lymphadenopathy.
