Abstract

Recent advances in minimally invasive endoscopic approaches have pushed the boundaries of well-established resection techniques for therapeutic and diagnostic applications. Endoscopic full thickness resection techniques are a key development in the management of challenging epithelial and subepithelial lesions that are not amenable to conventional endoscopic resection methods and previously required a surgical approach. Endoscopic full thickness biopsy represents a paradigm shift in tissue acquisition and will enhance our understanding of the pathophysiology, and guide therapy, of gastrointestinal neuromuscular diseases, as well as other inflammatory and neoplastic conditions. This review highlights current tools and techniques available for endoscopic full thickness resection and biopsy, as well as outcomes from such interventions.
