Colorectal endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) has always been challenging for endoscopists, but the procedure can be facilitated after adequate exposure of submucosal layer and cutting line. We developed a traction method based on gravity for facilitating colorectal ESD, referred as magnetic bead-assisted ESD (MBA-ESD). This study aimed to compare the safety and effectiveness of MBA-ESD and conventional ESD for treating large superficial colorectal tumors.


This retrospective study included consecutive patients with large (≥ 20 mm in their maximal diameter) superficial colorectal tumors who underwent MBA-ESD or conventional ESD at our endoscopy center between June 2017 to January 2018. Each patient in the MBA-ESD group was matched to a patient in the conventional ESD group using propensity scores.


Thirteen patients in each group were matched for the analyses. The baseline characteristics were balanced after propensity matching. The incidence of overall complications was significantly lower in the matched MBA-ESD group (0% vs. 38.5%, P = 0.039), while similar rates of en bloc resection, R0 resection, curative resection, and tumor recurrence were noted. Although without statistic difference, dissection time and speed were improved when using MBA-ESD (33 min vs. 40 min, P = 0.111; and 21 mm2/min vs. 16 mm2/min, P = 0.143, respectively).


MBA-ESD is a feasible, safe, and effective method for treating large superficial colorectal tumors. Further large, prospective and controlled studies are needed to fully assess this method.
