BACKGROUND Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) has recently been developed for endoscopic treatment of GI tumors, which enables us to resect even large tumors en bloc. However, a considerable frequency of perforation has become another problem. The best way to prevent perforation is to create a sufficient submucosal fluid cushion (SFC). The aim of this study is to find out the feasibility of ESD by using a mixture of 1900 KDa hyaluronic acid (Suvenyl) and a 10% glycerin plus 5% fructose… CONTINUE READING
