EGC of the distal antrum abutting the pyloric ring is difficult to do ESD. If the retroflection is possible at the duodenal bulb, the retrograde approach can be tried. In many cases, however, duodenal retroflection is impossible. So, the antegrade approach should be done.

In the antegrade approach to the pyloring ring cancer, distal resection margin is alway worrisome. In the outpatient interview, I usually explain this point very carefully using the following cartoon.

In the following case, retroflection in the duodenal bulb was impossible. After marking, distal precutting was done very carefully using the Dual knife. After finishing the circumferential precutting, submucosal dissection was done as usual.

The final pathology was acceptible. However, the distal resection margin was just 2 mm as expected.
