Therapeutic gastrointestinal endoscopy is rapidly evolving, with an increasing role in the management of motility disorders of the digestive tract. This ESGE Guideline aims to provide guidance on various aspects of the endoscopic management of six clinical conditions: Zenker's diverticulum, achalasia, GERD, gastroparesis, intractable constipation, and Ogilvie's syndrome.
