OSPINA NIETO, John; ODA, Ichiro; UEDO, Noriya e OSPINA NIETO, Jesús A. Proposal for a six stage training course for endoscopic dissection of the submucosa using animal models. Rev Col Gastroenterol [online]. 2010, vol.25, n.3, pp. 321-324. ISSN 0120-9957.
For many years training in endoscopic surgery has involved clinical practice with hospital patients. Currently, the development of simulators has made the learning curve for endoscopists much safer for patients. Nevertheless, the high cost of the equipment necessary for training has meant that this advantage has not yet been widely adopted in Latin America. The development of minimally invasive techniques such as endoscopic submucosal dissection for the management of superficial gastrointestinal neoplasia requires a learning curve that incorporates risk reduction for complications such as perforation and bleeding. This article proposes training of endoscopy specialists in this field through a six-stage course which includes the use of animal models.
