    Abstract

    The early diagnosis of gastric cancer allows patients and physicians to pursue the option of endoscopic resection, which is significantly less invasive than conventional surgical resection. In Korea, the use of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) has been increasing, and many reports on ESD have been published. In addition, Korean gastroenterologists from several hospitals performing ESD have conducted formal meetings to discuss useful information regarding ESD. Here, we discuss the Korean experience with ESD, including outcomes and prospects of endoscopic treatments.
