Yervant Ichkhanian et al. Management of patients after failed peroral endoscopic myotomy: a multicenter study

Four different management strategies in 99 patients with failed POEM were compared in this multicenter study. With a median follow-up of 10 months, those treated by repeat POEM or pneumatic dilation achieved acceptable and comparable clinical success, and there was evidence to suggest that a subgroup of patients can achieve symptomatic relief with conservative management.
