Dear colleagues,

I have gotten a lot of e-mail for more information about Endoscopic Vacuum Therapy (EVT) in upper GI. I am happy to have the chance to use this medium for providing a list of important practical details and publications.

EVT will play an important role in the future endoscopic management of intestinal leaks and perforations. It can be a life saving therapy!

We have just started to gain experience but there seem to be more and more indications.

Please find in the links below important practical details as well as the pertinent publications.
