The most important feature of the Flex knife is its flexibility. It is possible to incise and dissect safely with minimum risk of perforation by carefully adjusting the length of the knife and using the stopper so as not to slip too deeply. Moreover, the Flex knife is cost-effective, since ESD can be completed with this single device. ESD should be introduced after acquiring thorough knowledge and skill in manipulating it for treatment, including the submucosal injection method, hemostasis and treatment of the ulcer bed after resection.

 It is desirble that this new exceptionally effective technique becomes used generally.
