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.

Gastric per-oral endoscopic myotomy (G-POEM) was introduced four years ago as an investigational procedure for refractory gastroparesis. The safety and efficacy were currently evaluated. With our rece...
In achalasia, muscle spasm may involve the proximal esophagus. When the muscle spasm is located in the proximal esophagus, conventional per oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) may not be sufficient to reli...
Per-oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) represents a less invasive alternative, as compared with conventional laparoscopic Heller's myotomy (LHM), for achalasia patients. It cannot be excluded, however, th...

Per-Oral Endoscopic Myotomy (POEM) is increasingly used for the treatment of achalasia. In published series, a 12cm-POEM is usually performed. Surgical myotomy is typically shorter (8cm). ...
This study compares the clinical efficacy of safety of circular myotomy and full-thickness myotomy guided by peroral endoscopic in treatment of incision length of ≤7cm and of ≥7cm in a...
The purpose of this study is to show that the Per-Oral Endoscopic Myotomy (POEM) procedure is an effective treatment for people with achalasia.
This study intends to investigate the feasibility, safety and efficacy of peroral endoscopic myotomy for the treatment of achalasia in a multi center setting.
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.
