Endoscopic Suturing

What is Endoscopic Suturing?

Endoscopic suturing is a technique that allows endoscopists to suture tissue from inside the GI tract with the use of an endoscope. This is an exciting, groundbreaking technology because conventionally any type of suturing of the GI tract required a surgery. But now instead of a surgeon dissecting to the bowel from the outside in, endoscopists can now suture from the inside out.

What is Endoscopic Suturing used for?

Because endoscopic suturing allows endoscopists to manipulate tissue like never before, it can be used for a variety of applications in the GI tract – such as closing holes, securing stents, and also weight loss applications.

Endoscopic suturing allows endoscopists to more safely and effectively perform procedures such as endoluminal stenting, ESD, POEM, GJ-outlet reduction and ESG.

Are there any side effects I should know about?

There are very few side effects from this procedure, and most patients have little or no discomfort. However, the side effects that have been reported include transient sore throat, nausea, and stomach pain.
