ESD / EMR
In addition to organ resection, endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) and endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) are also available as methods of choice for the removal of early tumorous changes in the gastrointestinal tract. If the lesion is removed with a snare, it is called an EMR procedure.
The removal of larger areas can even be done in several pieces. If large lesions are to be ablated en bloc, the ESD procedure is suitable. Here, the resection is not performed with snares, but with special electrosurgical knives. The choice of the right procedure depends on the respective risk of malignancy.
