BackgroundEndoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) enables accurate pathological evaluation and low recurrence rates. Large series describing ESD outcomes in Western countries are scarce.ObjectiveTo evaluate the real-life experience of ESD in a single Western centre.MethodsData of all the patients submitted to ESD in our centre were prospectively recorded in a database, from the first procedure in 2011 until May 2017. Feasibility, en bloc and R0 resection rates and safety were assessed.ResultsThree hundred and one ESDs were performed (37 in submucosal lesions) on 283 patients (54% male). Lesions were located in the oesophagus (n = 13), stomach (n = 169), duodenum (n = 4), colon (n = 35) and rectum (n = 80). ESD was technically successful in 292 lesions (97%); among malignant or premalignant epithelial lesions (n = 232), the en bloc resection rate was 91% and, of those, the R0 resection rate was 87% (between 69% in the colon and 93% in the stomach). Two patients needed surgery due to adverse events. Surgery for non-curative ESD was performed in 12 cases (58% without residual lesion). There were 10 perforations, 9 of them closed endoscopically. Mortality was 0%.ConclusionOur real-life experience shows that ESD is feasible, safe and effective in Western settings.
