“Posterior-like” anterior per-oral endoscopic myotomy

Post written by Georgios Mavrogenis, MD, from the Department of Gastroenterology, Mediterraneo Hospital, Athens, Greece. Endoscopists are free to choose between anterior of posterior based on their preference. Recent data illustrate that posterior POEM is faster and less prone to mucosal injuries. Conversely, some studies have associated anterior POEM with less post-myotomy acid reflux. We …

Conscious transnasal hybrid ESD enables safe and painless en bloc resection

Post written by Yohei Minato, MD, from the NTT Medical Center, Tokyo, Japan. With the transnasal endoscopy, we successfully performed hybrid endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) of an early gastric cancer without sedation. Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection (ESD) is a technically demanding and time-consuming procedure, which is usually performed under sedation. Recently, hybrid ESD was developed as …
