Endoscopy in regular checkups of patients with multiple digestive organ polyps of varying localization



Endoscopy in regular checkups of patients with multiple digestive organ polyps of varying localization



Klinicheskaya Meditsina (Moscow) 64(6): 87-90



Polyp-like tumours (benign polyps, polyp-like cancer, malignant polyps) affecting two or more portions of the digestive tract were diagnosed in 116 patients over a period of 1968-1984. The polyps were located in the stomach and large intestine in 91 (78.5 per cent) patients. Benign and malignant tumours of other localization were found in 22 (19.6 per cent) patients. Annual checkup made it possible to reveal polyps in 71 (61.6 per cent) patients. Malignant affection of different portions of the digestive tract were found in 37 (31.9 per cent) patients: in 20 patients the tumour was found in the stomach, in 15 in the large intestine, and in 2 patients in both the stomach and large intestine. In 25 of 37 patients (65.5 per cent) endoscopy revealed the early form of cancer. Endoscopic polypectomy was performed in 84 patients. Recurrence or growth of new polyps was found in 36 (46.1 per cent) patients and repeated endoscopic polypectomy was performed in 24 (66.7 per cent) patients. Patients with digestive tract polyps should be included in high-risk cancer group both before and after treatment.
