Peroral Endoscopic Myotomy for Achalasia in a Thoracic Surgical Practice.


"Peroral endoscopic myotomy is a safe and effective therapy for achalasia. It provides reliable and persistent palliation of dysphagia and objective improvement in esophageal emptying. Esophagitis is common but resolves with acid suppression therapy. Thoracic surgeons with an interest in esophageal diseases and experience with endoscopy are encouraged to adopt the procedure."



Key Points: It is safe and effective only in the well trained surgeon's hands. And there still seem to be issues with "heartburn."


And they still push "acid suppression therapy." Not good....


Make an informed choice....
