How I Do It: Per-Oral Pyloromyotomy (POP).

Journal Article (Journal Article)

INTRODUCTION: Several surgical treatments exist for treatment of gastroparesis, including gastric electrical stimulation, pyloroplasty, and gastrectomy. Division of the pylorus by means of endoscopy, Per-Oral Pyloromyotomy (POP), is a newer, endoluminal therapy that may offer a less invasive, interventional treatment option. METHODS: We describe and present a video of our step by step technique for POP using a lesser curvature approach. The following are technical steps to complete the POP procedure from the lesser curve approach. CONCLUSION: In our experience, these methods provide promising initial results with low operative risks, although long-term outcomes remain to be determined.
