Core Tip

Core Tip: Endoscopic resection (ER) is considered the most appropriate treatment for precancerous gastrointestinal lesions improving patient quality of life, with reduced rates of complications, shorter hospitalization period, and lower costs when compared to surgical resection. Complete ER rates and recurrence rates after procedure vary depending on the size and severity of the lesion. Innovative techniques could improve endoscopic rate and clinical outcomes.
