What’s new here and important for clinicians?

The treatment of refractory diabetic gastroparesis is challenging. Gastric peroral endoscopic myotomy (G-POEM) is a viable non-invasive treatment modality to consider in such patients.  Further studies are needed to evaluate G-POEM as an endoscopic therapy for refractory diabetic gastroparesis.
