Experimental Researches of Digestive Endoscopic Tunnel Technique

  • Enqiang Linghu


In this chapter we described the experimental researches in porcine models of tunnel technique for mucosal lesions, for resection of muscularis propria, for myotomy of muscularis propria, researches of tunnel technique into the mediastinum and researches of percutaneous tunnel technique for mediastinal lesions.
