Endoscopic full-thickness transoral outlet reduction (efTOR) is a therapeutic option to reduce a dilated gastrojejunal anastomosis (GJA) after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB). Mucosal ablation with argon plasma coagulation (APC) is usually performed to achieve tissue adaptation. However, rupture of sutures before scarring can lead to recurrent dilatation of the GJA. Here, we describe efTOR with a semicircumferential endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD-efTOR) as an alternative to APC-efTOR.

Transoral resection of Zenker's diverticulum (TORD) was first reported in 2010. We present results for our modified approach to transoral resection (MTORD)-full-thickness cricopharyngeal myectomy, di...
The endoscopic full-thickness resection (EFTR) is established in ablation of recurrent colorectal adenomas, which cannot be removed by endoscopic resection in cases of fibrosis. The EFTR can be applie...
Fractures of the condylar process are frequent. Ideal management of these fractures, as discussed in the literature, is controversial. Some recent meta-analyses have favored open reduction and interna...
Current international guidelines recommend endoscopic resection for T1 colorectal cancer (CRC) with histological low-risk features and oncologic resection for those at high-risk of lymphatic metastasi...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility, safety, and early surgical outcomes of transoral thyroidectomy and to compare robotic and endoscopic procedures.
Endoscopic full-thickness resection (EFTR) in the colon using an over-the-scope clip (OTSC) as a closure mechanism is a recent technique that allows the endoscopic resection of colonic les...
The purpose of this prospective, multicenter study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of endoscopic full-thickness plication for the treatment of symptomatic gastroesophageal reflux. ...
Most of the cancers develop from the adenomatous polyps. The therapeutic methods have been established already - endoscopic polypectomy (EPE) for stalked polyps and endoscopic mucosal rese...
Prospective observational trial. A full thickness resection of gastric subepithelial tumors is performed after application of full thickness sutures underneath the tumor with the GERDX(TM)...
Prospective, randomized multi-center trial. Comparison of Endoscopic Mucosal Resection (EMR) versus Endoscopic Full-Thickness Resection with the duodenal Full-Thickness Resection Device (d...
A neurovascular syndrome associated with compression of the BRACHIAL PLEXUS; SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY; and SUBCLAVIAN VEIN at the superior thoracic outlet. This may result from a variety of anomalies such as a CERVICAL RIB, anomalous fascial bands, and abnormalities of the origin or insertion of the anterior or medial scalene muscles. Clinical features may include pain in the shoulder and neck region which radiates into the arm, PARESIS or PARALYSIS of brachial plexus innervated muscles, PARESTHESIA, loss of sensation, reduction of arterial pulses in the affected extremity, ISCHEMIA, and EDEMA. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp214-5).
A measurement of the thickness of the carotid artery walls. It is measured by B-mode ULTRASONOGRAPHY and is used as a surrogate marker for ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
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.
A specialized form of transanal endoscopic surgery for microscopically controlled operations in the RECTUM.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
