An endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) is considered to be a potential alternative to surgery for a gastrointestinal tumor on account of it being an improved technique. Since its introduction in Japan in the early 1980s, it is now an accepted modality for removing precancerous lesions or early gastric cancer from the GI tract because it is minimally invasive and preserves the patient's quality of life. The major complications of EMR is bleeding and perforation. The treatment guidelines for iatrogenic perforation after EMR have not been established.
