Endoscopic suturing for closure of ESD defects

Post written by Samuel Han, MD, from the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Center, Aurora, Colorado, USA. In this Tools and Techniques video, we describe a formalized technique to close defects created by ESD using endoscopic suturing. Essentially, we suggest proceeding from the site most distal to the scope insertion …

Usefulness and safety of colorectal precutting EMR and hybrid ESD for sessile serrated polyps

Post written by Yuzuru Tamaru, MD, PhD, from the Department of Gastroenterology, National Hospital Organization, Kure Medical Center and Chugoku Cancer Center, Kure, Japan. In this report, we present 2 cases of precutting endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR)/hybrid endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) with a circumferential incision and partial dissection followed by snare resection via SOUTEN. We also …

Modified attachment method using an S-O clip for gastric ESD

Post written by Mitsuru Nagata, MD, from the Department of Endoscopy, Shonan Fujisawa Tokushukai Hospital, Kanagawa, Japan. In this report, we present 2 cases of gastric neoplasm treated using S-O clip-assisted endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) and discuss the use of the S-O clip for gastric ESD. The S-O clip (Zeon Medical, Tokyo, Japan) is a …

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 …

Tissue retractor system–assisted ESD of a large rectal tumor with significant fibrosis

Post written by Salmaan Jawaid, MD, from the Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, University of Florida Health, Gainesville, Florida, USA. With the assistance of a novel tissue retractor system, we successfully performed endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) of a large rectal lesion that had developed significant fibrosis from direct tattoo material. Typically, performing ESD of …
