New Strategies to Improve Polypectomy During Colonoscopy

Presented by Aries Pharma

Although nearly all gastroenterologists perform polypectomy, there is recent evidence that we're not doing polypectomy as well as we thought we were. Multiple studies have now shown that larger polyps, particularly those more than 1 cm and particularly sessile serrated polyps are incompletely removed by standard polypectomy techniques. In addition, lateral spreading polyps more than 2 cm require special techniques and skills to completely remove. Fortunately, there are new methods and tools to safely and effectively remove these polyps including endoscopic mucosal resection with pre-injection of the polyp with a submucosal cushion.
