BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS Laterally spreading tumors - non granular type (LST-NG) are more often considered candidates for endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) than laterally spreading tumors - granular type (LST-G), because of their higher potential for submucosal invasion. However, ESD for LST-NG can be technically difficult. The aim of our study was to compare our ESD results for LST-NG and for LST-G. PATIENTS AND METHODS Ninety-nine LST-NG and 169 LST-G measuring 20 mm in size or more… CONTINUE READING
