VARGAS C, Gloria et al. Therapy for early gastric cancer with Submucosal Endoscopic Disection using the IT-Knife 2. Rev. gastroenterol. Perú [online]. 2012, vol.32, n.3, pp. 297-302. ISSN 1022-5129.
70 years old woman, without history of illness, came to the Digestive Endoscopic Center of the Gastroenterology department of Arzobispo Loayza hospital, with the diagnosis of Abdominal pain syndrome, in which Upper Endoscopy was practiced. Upper endoscopy concludes the diagnosis of a malignant lesion probably an Early gastric cancer type IIa+IIc, which was confirmed with pathology. Endoscopic treatment was done with Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD). The lesion was totally removed, in accordance with the pathologist. Endoscopic controls at 10 weeks showed retractable red scar and a negative biopsy for neoplasm. This case is reported for being the first one published in our literature in which therapeutic ESD with IT-Knife2, was done in Early Gastric cancer.
