Background Gastric per oral endoscopic myotomy (G-POEM) is a recently developed incisionless procedure to address gastroparesis. It has been previously described to treat medical and postsurgical gastroparesis. The present study is a case series of patients undergoing G-POEM for a variety of indications, both elective and urgent.

Background Gastroparesis is a functional disorder with a variety of symptoms that is characterized by delayed gastric emptying in the absence of mechanical obstruction. A recent series of retrospective studies has demonstrated that peroral endoscopic pyloromyotomy (G-POEM) is a promising endoscopic procedure for treating patients with refractory gastroparesis. The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the feasibility, safety, and efficacy of G-POEM. Methods 20 patients with refractory ga...

SummaryBackground Gastric peroral endoscopic pyloromyotomy (G-POEM) was introduced for treating refractory gastroparesis. Aim The presented series focused on clinical mid-term efficacy and predictive outcomes factors. Methods This was a single centre study of 29 patients operated on between January 2014 and April 2016, with disturbed gastric emptying scintigraphy (GES) and/or elevated Gastroparesis Cardinal Symptoms Index (GCSI). The procedures were performed as previously described. The primary...

Background and Aims Gastric per-oral endoscopic myotomy (G-POEM) recently has been reported as minimally invasive therapy for gastroparesis. The aims of this study were to report on the first multicenter experience with G-POEM and to assess the efficacy and safety of this novel procedure for patients with gastroparesis with symptoms refractory to medical therapy. Methods All patients with gastroparesis who underwent endoscopic pyloromyotomy (G-POEM) at 5 medical centers were included. Procedures...

Abstract The role of gastric electrical stimulation for patients with refractory symptoms of gastroparesis remains controversial. Open label studies suggest benefit while randomized controlled trials did not demonstrate differences between active and sham intervention. Using a voluntary reporting system of the Federal Drug Administration, we examined the type and frequency of adverse events. Methods We conducted an electronic search of the Manufacturer and User Device Experience (MAUDE) databank...

Background Gastric electric stimulation (GES) is used to treat patients with refractory gastroparesis symptoms. However, the effectiveness of GES in clinical practice and the effect of GES on specific symptoms of gastroparesis are not well delineated.

We have therefore carried out G-POEM in a 51-year-old diabetic woman who suffered from disabling and refractory clinical gastroparesis; this was confirmed with by gastric emptying scintigraphy that showed an increased gastric emptying half-time.

Background Gastric electric stimulation (GES) is used for refractory gastroparesis symptoms. Although symptomatic improvement has been reported with GES, few studies describe the need for additional surgery after placement. Our goal was to evaluate the outcomes of a large series of GES at a single institution.
