Abstract

Successful closure of gastrointestinal defects is one of the most important goals for therapeutic endoscopy. Historically, surgical repair was the mainstay of treatment for any gastrointestinal defect; however, surgery is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Endoscopic management of gastrointestinal defects has developed rapidly in recent years and has become more effective, reducing the morbidity and mortality rates, and avoiding surgical interventions. Appropriate use of endoscopic techniques requires extensive knowledge of the devices and their advantages and limitations during practical applications.
