The paper presents a prospectively evaluated group of 25 patients treated by gastric endoscopic submucosal dissection (G-ESD). The aim of the study was to evaluate short-term treatment results.

All patients treated by G-ESD during the study period 11/2011–10/2014 were included in the study. Lesions were indicated for G-ESD according to expanded criteria. En bloc resection, R0 resection, curative resection and complications were considered as indicators of short-term treatment results.

A total of 20 (80%) of lesions were neoplastic according to the final histological evaluation. Among them, en bloc, R0 and curative resection could be achieved in 17 (85%), 17 (85%) and 16 (80%) respectively. Perforation was observed in two (8%) of all cases and had to be treated surgically in one (4%) case. The 30-day mortality was 0.

The paper presents the treatment results of a series of the first group of G-ESD patients from a Czech gastroenterology center. Our results are similar to those reported from Eastern-Asia centers. Nevertheless, the validity of the results is limited by a selection bias.
