    This is a method performed by endoscopy ( Narrow), it is minimally invasive, it is effective and safe, practiced in many US centres as well as in Europe; it is currently the only recommended endoscopic technique as an alternative to surgical treatment for selected categories of patients who depend on a pharmacological medical therapy (SAGES 2013 guidelines).
