Abstract

Endoscopy plays a pivotal role in the diagnostic and therapeutic management of esophago-gastric tumors. Endoscopic therapy has been described in both early and advanced phase of neoplastic diseases of the gastroesophageal tract In precancerous lesions and early cancers techniques of tissue removal or ablation such as mucosectomy, thermal orphotodynamic therapy can offer a safe and effective alternative to surgical approach with results comparable in terms of outcomes and less complication rates. For advanced diseases endoscopic approach affords a safe and effective palliative treatment of many of the major symptoms related to the inoperable neoplasias of the gastroesophageal tract.
