Endoscopic surgery for creeping villous tumors of the colon



Endoscopic surgery for creeping villous tumors of the colon



Gastroenterological Endoscopy 28(6): 1224-1232



Creeping villous neoplasms of the colon were removed together with the mucosa by means of endoscopic electroresection. In 15 patients tumors were located in the rectum and in 11 patients in the colon. In 19 patients tumors affected a half or more of the colonic circumference and had an extension of 3 .apprx. 5 to 8 cm. Endoscopic procedures in 16 patients resulted in complete recovery. Two patients were not examined due to a short period of follow up, and in 8 patients central recurrent tumor were detected and could be removed by repeated procedures. It is concluded that endoscopic electroresection of the colonic mucosae with tumors has proved to be a radical operative procedure in 15 patients with malignant villous neoplasm.
