Core Tip The study by Liu et al, is a prospective randomized study about the treatment of gastric phytobezoars through daily intake of Coca-Cola vs endoscopic treatment, and represents an important step in clinical research on this topic. Given the promising outcomes of the Coca-Cola treatment observed in this study, which demonstrated a 100% success rate in dissolving phytobezoars and showed reduced costs and occurrence of gastric ulcers, it is recommended as a primary treatment option for phytobezoars. The study's exclusions, such as patients with upper gastric surgery, phytobezoars older than 14 d, and cases of gastroparesis, limit its applicability to broader populations, especially in Western countries.
