Varied importance of endoscopic polypectomy as prevention of cancer in the stomach and colon

Varied importance of endoscopic polypectomy as prevention of cancer in the stomach and colon

Leber, Magen, Darm 14(1): 31-33

15,300 endoscopies of the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract were done during the years 1974-1982. During this time 915 polyps were excised. 3.2% of the polyps excised from the stomach, as contrasted to 64.8% of the ones taken from the colorectal part of the gastrointestinal tract were classified as precancerous lesions. These results show, that endoscopic polypectomy is a very efficient procedure in regard to prophylaxis of colon carcinoma, however almost without significance in this regard for prophylaxis of gastric carcinoma.
