Core tip: We have reported our experiences with the over-the-scope clip (OTSC) and the outcomes of several cases in Japan. The aims of the present study were to retrospectively review the results of OTSC use in our hospital and to examine the feasibility of using the OTSC to completely close perforations after endoscopic submucosal dissection for early gastrointestinal cancers.
