Endoscopic application of high frequency diathermy polypectomy and papillotomy

Endoscopic application of high frequency diathermy polypectomy and papillotomy

Leber Magen Darm 15(6): 227-233

Several complications may arise as a sequence of monopolar high frequency diathermy applied for control of hemorrhage, polypectomy and papillotomy because of the specific conditions of current flow. Such complications can be burns, thermic organ damage of dysfunction of implanted cardiac pacemakers. Results and experience obtained during the last decade however show, that this endoscopic method of surgery is efficient and of low risk, if appropriate precuations are taken.
