On the basis of lesser rates of major adverse events and a short-term efficacy as Heller's myotomy, there is a growing enthusiasm in favor of peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM), whereas study compar...
Peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) has become the mainstay for the treatment of achalasia at many institutions around the world since its inception in 2008. POEM can be performed using either the anter...
During peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM), creation of the tunnel is highly technically demanding and mucosal injury is one of the most common potential complications. We explored a method without a su...
Case series suggest favorable results of peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) for treatment of patients with achalasia. Data comparing POEM with pneumatic dilation, the standard treatment for patients wi...
BACKGROUND Recently, a stag beetle (SB) knife was introduced to reduce the difficulty of peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM). The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the S...
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). ...
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...
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...
Peroral endoscopic myotomy is a novel, promising endoscopic technique for achalasia considering its minimal invasive characteristics and comparable efficacy to Heller myotomy. Numerous stu...
Esophageal outflow obstruction is characterized by failure to relax the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), resulting in impaired flow of ingested food into the stomach. The subsequent stasi...
The capability to perform the duties of one's profession generally, or to perform a particular professional task, with skill of an acceptable quality.
Non-invasive, endoscopic imaging by use of VIDEO CAPSULE ENDOSCOPES to perform examination of the gastrointestinal tract, especially the small bowel.
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 method of producing a high-quality scan by digitizing and subtracting the images produced by high- and low-energy x-rays.
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.
