What is it about?
All 10 patients were treated successfully (100%) in a very short treatment period of 5 (3-7 ) days.IEP can be treated solely with the novel endoscopic method. Negative pressure is used with a special drainage device to close and drain esophageal leakages, simultanously.
Why is it important?
All 10 patients were treated successfully (100%) in a very short treatment period of 5 (3-7 ) days. (easy application throughout the whole length of esophagus, no complication observed, simultanously close and promote internal drainage in one step, no external thoracic drainage, no extra endoscopic intervention (clip/stent), no stenosis) Our study suggests that the new method of endoscopic vacuum therapy will play an important role in endoscopic management of all types of esophageal perforation.
