Endoscopic submucosal dissection for superficial gastrointestinal lesions: European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) Guideline – Update 2022
P. Pimentel-Nunes, D. Libânio, B.A.J. Bastiaansen, et al.
This Guideline represents an update of the Guideline on the role of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for superficial gastrointestinal (GI) lesions, published by the European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) in 2015 .
This evidence-based Guideline was commissioned by ESGE. It addresses major issues concerning ESD, that is, evaluation before ESD, comparison with other therapeutic strategies, namely endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) and surgery, and management after ESD, to inform and underpin the use of this fundamental technique for the treatment of superficial GI lesions.
