The aim of this study is to evaluate postpolypectomy bleeding rates in large (>2 cm) pedunculated colonic polyps using either adrenaline injection alone or loop and clip application as prophylactic methods. Patients with one pedunculated colonic polyps (>2 cm) were included in a double-blind study and studied… CONTINUE READING
