BACKGROUND AND AIMS Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is commonly performed under air insufflation and is often accompanied by abdominal discomfort. CO2 is absorbed more rapidly by the body than is air; however, the use of CO2 insufflation in ESD remains controversial. This randomized, double-blind, controlled, prospective study was designed to assess the efficacy of CO2 versus air insufflation in gastric ESD. METHODS Between May 2012 and August 2014, a total of 110 patients with gastric… CONTINUE READING
