Endoscopic polypectomy and the diagnosis and prevention of carcinoma of the colon

Endoscopic polypectomy and the diagnosis and prevention of carcinoma of the colon

Acta Chirurgica Italica 40(3): 268-272

Adenomatous polypi of the large intestine are reviewed on the basis of 175 cases of endoscopic polypectomy from 1978-1982. The pre-cancerous state of these polypi is assessed on their size, histology and degree of dysplasia. Polypectomy is fundamental for diagnosis, for accurate histological classification and for the prevention of carcinoma of the rectum. This procedure is the treatment of choice for adenoma with dysplasia involving the muscularis mucosae.
