CONCLUSIONS: Inappropriate forceps polypectomy is common but modifiable. The proportion of non-diminutive polyps removed with forceps polypectomy should be considered as a quality measure.PMID:34839039 | DOI:10.1016/j.cgh.2021.11.031

Turk J Gastroenterol. 2021 Oct;32(10):837-842. doi: 10.5152/tjg.2021.20372.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Nearly one-third of colorectal cancers (CRC) arise via the serrated pathway. CT colonography (CTC) is a CRC screening examination. Endoscopic detection of sessile serrated polyps (SSPs) varies widely; it is unknown whether CTC effectively detects SSPs. The aim of this study is to determine whether CTC detects SSPs at an institution that performs a large volume of CTC.METHODS: We conducted a search of pathology records to identify serrated polyps (SPs) from 2005 to 2012. We extracted demographic data from the electronic health rec...

Case Summary: A 59-year-old man underwent screening colonoscopy that identified a 2-cm rectal polyp in the posterior midline, 7 cm from the anal verge. Biopsy revealed a tubular adenoma with high-grade dysplasia. The patient underwent a robotic-assisted transanal minimally invasive surgery with full-thickness excision (Fig. 1). Final pathology confirmed a well-differentiated adenocarcinoma extending into the submucosa (sm2). There was no lymphovascular or perineural invasion, and the radial margin was 5 mm.

World J Gastroenterol. 2021 Sep 14;27(34):5625-5629. doi: 10.3748/wjg.v27.i34.5625.ABSTRACTThe serrated pathway accounts for 30%-35% of colorectal cancer (CRC). Unlike hyperplastic polyps, both sessile serrated lesions (SSLs) and traditional serrated adenomas are premalignant lesions, yet SSLs are considered to be the principal serrated precursor of CRCs. Serrated lesions represent a challenge in detection, classification, and removal-contributing to post-colonoscopy cancer. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance to characterize these lesions properly to ensure complete removal. A retrospective cohort study developed a ...
