The outcome of peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) in patients with prior Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is not known and some experts have recommended against its performance in this patient population because of the risk of postoperative regurgitation. The aim of this study was to report on the outcomes of POEM in patients with RYGB anatomy.

Peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) is a treatment option for patients with previous surgical or endoscopic treatment. We aimed to evaluate the influence of prior treatment on perioperative and follo...
Optimal treatment modalities for each of the three subtypes of achalasia is still under debate. Differences in prognosis and long-term outcomes between peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) and balloon di...
Achalasia is a primary motility disorder of the esophagus characterized by aperistalsis and failure of lower esophageal sphincter (LES) relaxation. Treatment of achalasia aims at reducing LES pressure...
Peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) is a recognized technique for patients with achalasia. We aimed to evaluate the feasibility of using a small-caliber endoscope (thin-POEM) to perform POEM in patie...
Peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) has become the minimally invasive endoscopic treatment for achalasia; however, gastroesophageal reflux (GER) post-POEM has been reported. A pilot study was conduct...
This study intends to investigate the feasibility, safety and efficacy of peroral endoscopic myotomy for the treatment of achalasia in a multi center setting.
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...
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). ...
Achalasia is an esophagus motor disability characterized by a lack of relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) to deglutition. Myotomy is the gold standard surgical technique all...
Patients that are either scheduled to undergo or have undergone a PerOral Endoscopic Myotomy (POEM) or Laparoscopic Modified Heller Myotomy and Anti-Reflux Procedures at the Mayo Clinic Ro...
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.
Surgical incision of the lower esophageal sphincter near the CARDIA often used to treat ESOPHAGEAL ACHALASIA.
A motility disorder of the ESOPHAGUS in which the LOWER ESOPHAGEAL SPHINCTER (near the CARDIA) fails to relax resulting in functional obstruction of the esophagus, and DYSPHAGIA. Achalasia is characterized by a grossly contorted and dilated esophagus (megaesophagus).
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.
A specialized form of transanal endoscopic surgery for microscopically controlled operations in the RECTUM.
