Endoscopic Mucosal Resection


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.

"This well written book by experts provides a detailed view of an emergent endotherapy with the potential of avoiding unnecessary surgeries to remove superficial GI tumors. It would be a useful consultation source in a field in which this type of review is rare, and it includes details of the techniques, which are usually not reported in scientific articles." (Luis R. Pena, MD, FACG, AGAF, @Doody's Review Service)
