Traction-assisted ESD reduces procedure time in patients with large esophageal cancers

Endoscopic submucosal dissection with traction assistance helped reduce procedure time and avoid adverse events in patients with large esophageal cancers, according to study results.
In Traction-assisted endoscopic submucosal dissection (TA-ESD), the endoscopist pulls the lesion in the oral direction which allows for tangential visualization of the dissection line, reducing the risk for technical difficulties.
