En-bloc resection is desirable for accurate histopathological assessment of tissue specimens obtained using endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR). A new EMR method using sodium hyaluronate and a small-caliber-tip transparent hood has been developed. This is a peeling-off method using a needle-knife for mucosal and submucosal incisions. Long-lasting submucosal thickening resulting from an injection of sodium hyaluronate, and good visualization of the submucosal tissue with the aid of a small… CONTINUE READING
