Author commentary on Hirofumi Abe et al.
Hirofumi Abe et al. Risk scoring system for the preprocedural prediction of the clinical failure of peroral endoscopic myotomy: a multicenter case–control studyA risk score to preoperatively predict the clinical failure of POEM for achalasia was developed in a Japanese cohort of 2740 patients. Based on preprocedural Eckardt score, manometric diagnosis, and history and type of prior treatment, it was able to identify patients at high risk of clinical failure. This new score could be used to improve the clinical management of this group of patients.
