PMID: 35006188.


Digital chromoendoscopy (Narrow Band Imaging By Olympus) or BLI (Blue Light Imaging By Fujifilm), with the magnification endoscope, allows a detailed evaluation of the mucosal surface and its vascular network, which facilitates the diagnosis and monitoring of early lesions. This technique has demonstrated a better detection, which allows optical diagnosis during a colonoscopy examination. Patients with SpA with nonspecific gastrointestinal symptoms, subclinical intestinal inflammation are defined as endoscopic and histologically. The aim was to detect early structural inflammatory changes by chromoendoscopy and magnification colonoscopy in colonic/ileum digestive mucosa, and establish its association with clinical variables in SpA and gastrointestinal symptoms. Study approved by Institutional Ethics Committee, code HMC 2017-023.
