Summary of "Per-oral Endoscopic Myotomy in Children- First Experience with a New Triangular Knife."

Per-oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) is a novel treatment modality for achalasia cardia (AC). The procedure is technically challenging and time consuming. Recently, a new triangle knife (TTJ) has been introduced which is equipped with water jet facility. In this study, we analysed the feasibility, safety and efficacy of POEM in children with new triangle tip knife.

Fibrocartilage that makes up the triangular fibrocartilage complex which is found in the WRIST JOINT.

Fiberoptic endoscopy designed for duodenal observation and cannulation of VATER'S AMPULLA, in order to visualize the pancreatic and biliary duct system by retrograde injection of contrast media. Endoscopic (Vater) papillotomy (SPHINCTEROTOMY, ENDOSCOPIC) may be performed during this procedure.

Incision of Oddi's sphincter or Vater's ampulla performed by inserting a sphincterotome through an endoscope (DUODENOSCOPE) often following retrograde cholangiography (CHOLANGIOPANCREATOGRAPHY, ENDOSCOPIC RETROGRADE). Endoscopic treatment by sphincterotomy is the preferred method of treatment for patients with retained or recurrent bile duct stones post-cholecystectomy, and for poor-surgical-risk patients that have the gallbladder still present.
