Endoscopic polypectomy using high frequency current double snare method of polypectomy for prevention of incidental bleeding and perforation

Endoscopic polypectomy using high frequency current double snare method of polypectomy for prevention of incidental bleeding and perforation

Tohoku Journal of Experimental Medicine 136(2): 215-218

A double-snare method of higher frequency current-applied endoscopic polypectomy (double-snare polypectomy) was developed. Since 1975, the double-snare polypectomy was applied to 40 gastric polyps (36 patients), the largest being > 15 mm in diameter. Seven massively hemorrhaged cases after polypectomy were treated by hemostatic methods, such as electrocoagulation and pure ethanol injection. This method was warranted as a reliable formula for a riskless resection of large polyps without causing persistent major bleeding or fateful perforation.
