Zaheer Nabi et al. Peroral endoscopic myotomy in treatment-naïve achalasia patients versus prior treatment failure cases

This study in 502 patients with achalasia demonstrates that peroral endoscopic myotomy achieves similar clinical success in patients with and without prior treatments. The operative time may be significantly longer in patients with prior treatment, but there is no difference in adverse events between the two groups.
