Capsule endoscopy, in clinical use since the 2000s, has disrupted the diagnosis of various small bowel diseases, especially obscuregastrointestinal bleeding. An overview of information on indications, contraindications, patient management, and patient preparationfor capsule endoscopy, which allows the evaluation of the entire gastrointestinal tract, will be helpful for both referrers and capsuleendoscopy.
