Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2010
In natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) procedures it is essential to be able to perform secure closure of the access perforation. The aim of this study was to compare endoscopically sutured closure of a gastric access gastrotomy using the tissue apposition system (TAS), with closure via laparotomy in a randomized multicenter study.
