Description

Endoscopic Mucosal Resection (EMR) is a procedure in which an endoscope is guided through the digestive tract to remove the abnormal tissues and lesions in the mucosa (the innermost lining of the oesophagus which extends through the gastro intestinal tract). This technique enables location, removal and examination of these tissues with minimal invasion. EMR may be also be used to detect precancerous or early cancer lesions and determine whether mucosa is invaded by cancer lesions.

Symptoms

Endoscopic mucosal resection is used for diagnosis and treatment of abnormalities/early malignancies of the gastrointestinal tract. The procedure is also used for removing tissue samples for examination which will provide accurate staging of gastrointestinal neoplasms. This technique is used for removing superficial gastrointestinal neoplasm/early stage gastrointestinal cancers through minimal invasion. It can help to determine if cancer has grown beneath the tissues of the digestive tract lining.
