Abstract

The detachable snare, by Pontecorvo and Pesce in 1986, was designed for the prevention of bleeding after endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) of a polyp. It has been used widely for the ligation of large gastric or duodenal variceal bleeding, and even for the resection of a colon polyp. But detachable snare has been rarely used in the treatment of gastric perforation after the EMR. Herein, we report a successful case of detachable snare application in the treatment of gastric perforation caused by EMR in a patient with gastric adenoma measuring 1.6x1.6 cm in size, along with the review of relevant literatures.
