Özet

Background : Subepithelial lesions (SEL) on upper gastrointestinal endoscopy are frequently encountered and referred to endoscopic ultrasound (EUS). Management of small gastric hypoechoic SELs of muscularis propria (MP) is controversial since EUS-assisted fine needle aspiration may be inconclusive, and surgical excision may be too invasive. We aimed to analyze our gastric MP-SELs in terms of survival and confounding factors.
