Endoscopic mucosal resection is a new endotherapy technique that can avoid the need for open surgery in the treatment of many superficial gastrointestinal cancers. In this practical ‘how-to’ manual, experts in the field provide specific, technical guidance on all aspects of endoscopic mucosal resection relevant to therapeutic endoscopic practice. The book provides an in-depth analysis of the technique, including methods and particularities that are not usually reported in scientific articles. Each chapter includes a comprehensive literature analysis and is supported by detailed illustrations, tables and photographs.

Endoscopy in Early Gastrointestinal Cancers, Volume 2: Treatment covers the detailed information of the indications, techniques and perioperative management of endoscopic resection including endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) and endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD). Carcinoma of the gastrointestinal tract remained a major health issue worldwide, which is, however notoriously difficult to treat. Endoscopic resection for early neoplasia of the gastrointestinal tract had been developed for more than 25 years. Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is a recently developed technique pioneer by Japanese endoscopists. The principle of ESD is to achieve a complete resection of gastrointestinal neoplasia limited to mucosa with adequate circumferential margins. This novel endoscopic technique not only allows the achievement of en-bloc resection for early GI cancers, it also conveys a significantly lower rate of local recurrence as compared to EMR for early gastric cancers. There is an urge for the knowledge in applying these novel technologies for the treatment of early GI neoplasia worldwide. This book on the endoscopic treatment of early GI neoplasia, containing lots of illustrations, artwork and numerous short video clips, serves as a bridge between the recent development in endoscopy and the knowledge of gastroenterologist, endoscopist and surgeons.

Endoscopy has had a major impact in the development of modern gastroenterology and other medical specialties. The field of endoscopic procedure has developed over the last decade. By using different data it provided a better understanding of pathogenic mechanisms, described new entities and used for early detection, diagnostic procedures and therapeutic procedures. The advantages of many technical advances and modern-endoscopic equipments, endoscopy has had a developed spectacularly. Furthermore, endoscopy has surpassed its function as an examination tool and it became a rapid and efficient therapeutic tool of low invasiveness. The efficacy and usefulness of endoscopy has yet been established.
