1 Introduction.- 2 Prevention and Treatment of Tunnel Infection.- 3 Preoperative Preparation.- 4 Anesthesia management and monitoring during digestive endoscopic tunnelling.- 5 Establishment of standard submucosal tunnel.- 6 Endoscopic Submucosal Tunnel Dissection.- 7 Peroral endsoscopic myotomy.- 8 Gastric Peroral Endoscopic Myotomy (G-POEM).- 9 Diverticulum Peroral Endoscopic Myotomy (D-POEM).- 10 Submucosal tunneling endoscopic resection.- 11 Application of Digestive Endoscopic Tunneling Technique in Mediastinal and Abdominal Cavity.- 12 Future Disease-Centered Principles of Endoscopic Treatment.
This book elaborates on a whole new understanding of digestive endoscopy, the core of which is to treat quite a number of diseases using minimally invasive methods. Currently, the tunnel technique has been applied in the treatment of digestive early stage carcinomas, esophageal achalasia and submucosal tumors originating from muscularis propria. And this promising technique would surely be more widely used in the future.
The main contents of this book include the history of the digestive endoscopic tunnel technique, the practical anatomy involved, operation steps, indications and contraindications, complications and possible future exploration fields. This book is well suited for doctors and surgeons performing digestive endoscopic therapies.
