In this month’s video section we present three case scenarios from different parts of the world.

One case demonstrates how it is possible to not only remove large lesions by submucosal dissection but also to close the large mucosal defects to avoid any scarring and strictures (Video GIE).

Another case demonstrates advancement in technology, where optical biopsies can be utilized to distinguish neoplastic from non-neoplastic lesions (DEN).

All endoscopists are familiar with the difficulties of removing ingested foreign bodies. In this video, the authors have demonstrated removal of a larger than usual ingested foreign body (Endoscopy).

We are grateful to the editors of these journals for providing these links to help the readers of the WEO newsletter.
