Ligation-assisted endoscopic submucosal resection with apical mucosal incision to treat gastric subepithelial tumors originating from the muscularis propria

by Dingguo Zhang et al.

Fig. 2  Schematic of the procedure for apical mucosal incision with endoscopic submucosal resection using a ligation device for gastric subepithelial tumors originating from the muscularis propria. a The lesion is marked. b Submucosal injection is performed. c Incision of the apical mucosal surface of the lesion is performed with a hook knife. d Pressure is exerted and ligation of the lesion is performed with the endoloop. e The lesion is resected. f The wound is closed.
