Gastric interventional endoscopy
AbstractPurpose of review
To review new advances in gastric interventional endoscopy.Recent findings
Implementation of gastric endoscopy as a therapeutic option in obesity, gastric cancer, and gastroparesis.Summary
Less invasive new gastric endoscopic procedures can potentially replace currently offered laparoscopic approaches in many fields. In this article, we will review the use of endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty as a weight loss procedure, endoscopic submucosal dissection in treatment of early gastric cancer, and gastric per-oral endoscopic myotomy in treatment of refractory gastroparesis. These procedures can increase access to bariatric weigh loss procedures, provide an organ-saving curative option for early gastric cancer, and offer a new modality to improve refractory gastroparesis.
