Transoral mucosal excision sutured gastroplasty: a pilot study for GERD and obesity with two-year follow-up.

Legner A, Altorjay A, Juhasz A, Stadlhuber R, Reich V, Hunt B, Rothstein R, Filipi C - Surg Innov (2014)

Bottom Line: An outpatient transoral endoscopic procedure for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and obesity would be appealing if safe, effective, and durable.The subsequent 5 subjects had a successfully completed procedure.The initial human clinical experience showed promising results for effective and safe GERD and obesity therapy.

Mentions: Initially, the patients were placed in the supine position after intubation and initiation of general anesthesia. Upper endoscopy was performed followed by Savary guidewire esophageal dilation with a 60 F Savary dilator. Instrument insertion of the excision device (Figure 1) was difficult but possible in the first patient; however, the device and other malfunctions occurred.
