Endoscopic removal of gastric sessile polypoid lesions by means of neodymium yag laser and microwave system



Endoscopic removal of gastric sessile polypoid lesions by means of neodymium yag laser and microwave system



Journal of Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine 95(9): 1151-1156



Endoscopic application of Nd-YAG laser and microwave system were attempted in gastric polypoid lesions, especially sessile type. Seven gastric polypoid lesions with malignancy in 6 cases were treated with Nd-YAG laser system and 8 gastric polyps without malignancy in 5 cases with microwave system. All lesions were completely removed by these therapy. There was no complication or need for surgical intervention in any case. It was concluded that endoscopic Nd-YAG laser or microwave system are safe and effective method for removal of gastric polypoid lesion.
