ConclusionsThe number of patients referred for benign polyps tripled after introduction of the screening program. With an overall major morbidity and mortality rate of 11.8%, it seems valid to discuss whether an endoscopic excision with advanced techniques with or without laparoscopic assistance would be preferable in this patient group, accepting a 6.6% reoperation rate for additional oncological resection with lymph node sampling in patients in whom a malignancy is found on histological analysis of the complete polyp.

ConclusionsThe outcomes after RARCS at a single high-volume university center are overall comparable to outcomes reported from laparoscopic surgery. The results are satisfying because they are achieved during implementation of RARCS. Randomized trials are, however, needed and focus should especially be on long-term follow-up in regard to functional outcome.

ConclusionREM makes the proximal esophagus accessible for endoscopic myotomy. Potential indication for REM is motility disorders in the proximal esophagus and therapy failure after POEM. Esophageal motility disorders (EMD) involving the proximal esophagus are difficult to treat, because of inaccessibility for instrumentation Retrograde Endoscopic Myotomy (REM) was developed to treat EMD affecting the proximal esophagus and was performed with real‐time anatomical orientation based on prior computerized tomography and high‐resolution manometry REM was a safe and effective minimally invasive approach for myotomy of t...
