VILA, Juan J. et al. Endoscopic submucosal dissection in Spain: outcomes and development possibilities. Rev. esp. enferm. dig. [online]. 2013, vol.105, n.9, pp.544-552. ISSN 1130-0108.

Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) allows endoscopic, curative, en-bloc resection of superficial malignant or premalignant lesions. This procedure was conceived over 10 years ago in Japan, but has not experienced great expansion in Western countries for different reasons. This article reviews ESD indications and outcomes, and reflects on the reasons that prevent ESD from becoming common clinical practice in Western hospitals. Finally, recommendations on ESD training in our setting are made.

Keywords : Endoscopic submucosal dissection; Early gastric cancer; Gastric neoplasms; Endoscopy; Learning curve.
