Best techniques for endoscopic ampullectomy

Purpose of review Endoscopic ampullectomy has proven its safety and efficacy in multiple studies, making it the favorable option for the management of endoscopic ampullectomy. In this review, we plan to review the basic steps every endoscopist should be familiar with before undertaking endoscopic ampullectomy. Recent findings In this review, we plan to discuss the indications, preresection evaluation process including endoscopic ultrasound, endoscopic ampullectomy techniques with side-viewing endoscope and endoscopist experience/comfort with the management of the endoscopic ampullectomy complications. Summary Things of utmost interest include reviewing all the ampullary biopsy specimens by an expert gastrointestinal pathologist, careful preresection staging, en bloc resection, familiarity with tools and techniques of endoscopic ampullectomy, postresection adverse events &management and postprocedure surveillance.

Endoscopic ultrasound-guided gastroenterostomy (EUS-GE) is increasingly being used as an alternative to surgery and enteral stenting to manage gastric outlet obstruction (GOO). However, no data are available on the learning curve (LC) for EUS-GE. Defining it is necessary for the creation of adequate subspecialty training programs and quality assurance.

ConclusionsThe THT technique proved to be a feasible, safe, and effective alternative for corrective surgery of primary midline hernias associated with diastasis recti. Short- and mid-term results are encouraging but need to be confirmed by further studies with longer follow-up. The achieved midline reconstruction offers a significant improvement of patients' perceived quality of life through reduction of abdominal wall pain, bulging, low back pain, and urinary stress incontinence.
