Tu1057 THE RISK FACTORS OF BLEEDING IN COLD SNARE POLYPECTOMY FOR SMALL COLON POLYPS AND THE EFFECTS OF SUBMUCOSAL INJECTION

Colonoscopic removal of adenomatous polyps has a preventive effect for colorectal cancer. Cold snare polypectomy is an effective method of polyp removal for small polyps (5 mm to 10 mm). Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) or endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is used for larger polyps (>10 mm). Submucosal injection during EMR or ESD is helpful to prevent complications. However, the effect of submucosal injection in cold snare polypectomy for small polyps is not clear. The aim of this study is to evaluate the risks of bleeding in cold snare polypectomy for small polyps and to investigate the effect of submucosal injection.

Postpolypectomy bleeding and incomplete polyp removal are important complication and quality concerns of colonoscopy for colon cancer prevention. Endoscopic mucosal stripping (EMS) is a modified extension of traditional cold snare polypectomy to avoid submucosal injury during removal of non-pedunculated colon polyps. We previously demonstrated EMS could potentially eliminate postpolypectomy bleeding, especially for advanced colon polyps, and facilitate complete polyp removal based on polypectomy site biopsy and short-term follow-up colonoscopy (1,2).

With more colorectal cancer screening&large polyp removal, delayed post-polypectomy ulcer bleeds (PPUB) are increasing. Risk factors are right colon, sessile configuration, EMR removal, bleeding during polypectomy,&resumption of anti-coagulants&/or dual anti-platelet drugs. Prophylactic clip closure of PPU ’s is reported to be safe but does not reduce delayed PPUB nor is it cost effective. In our studies of patients hospitalized with delayed PPUB, all had ulcers, most with stigmata&arterial blood flow detected by Doppler endoscopic probe (DEP).

CONCLUSION: Also in our experience adenomatous polyps play a crucial role in the development of colorectal cancer. Therefore, it seems quite essential to avert colorectal cancers gradually. Colonoscopy is a non-invasive method of diagnosis and a treatment of colorectal polyps. Proper and careful colonoscopy examination is indispensable in the discovery of colorectal polyps and subsequent follow-up. Timely and routine colonoscopy is considered as an important approach for thwarting the development of malignant neoplasms.

Endosc Int Open 2017; 05: E580-E586 DOI: 10.1055/s-0043-105491 Background and aim Removal of polyps during colonoscopy effectively prevents the development of colorectal cancer. So far, snare resection with high frequency current with or without prior submucosal saline injection is the method of choice. The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility, safety, and outcome of cold snare resection during routine endoscopy. Methods In this prospective study, 522 patients undergoing outpatient colonoscopy were included. Cold snare resection for diminutive ( 9 – 15 mm) was performed using a de...

Objective Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) is effective for large laterally spreading flat and sessile lesions (LSLs). Sessile serrated adenomas/polyps (SSA/Ps) are linked to the relative failure of colonoscopy to prevent proximal colorectal cancer. We aimed to examine the technical success, adverse events and recurrence following EMR for large SSA/Ps in comparison with large conventional adenomas. Design Over 74 months till August 2014, prospective multicentre data of LSLs ≥20 mm were analysed. A standardised dye-based conventional EMR technique followed by scheduled surveillance colonoscopy was used. Res...

Authors: Jelsig AM Abstract Hamartomatous polyps (HPs) in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract are rare compared to other types of GI polyps, yet they are the most common type of polyp in children. The symptoms are usually rectal bleeding, abdominal pain, obstipation, anaemia, and/or small bowel obstruction. The polyps are typically removed concurrently with endoscopy when located in the colon, rectum, or stomach, whereas polyps in the small bowel are removed during push-enteroscopy, device-assisted enteroscopy, or by surgery. HPs can be classified as juvenile polyps or Peutz-Jeghers polyps based on their histopathologi...

March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month, today’s TBT post provides some helpful information on colorectal cancer. Michelle was a healthy, active 47 year old. She tried to eat right and she exercised. It looked like the hard work was paying off: no health issues and lots of energy. Her work in the healthcare field motivated her to see her doctors regularly for checkups, to get mammograms and to have her blood work done annually. She knew she was getting close to the magical age of 50 and that soon she would need to get a colonoscopy to screen for colorectal cancer.  Since she had no family history of the disease sh...
