Large sessile colonic adenomas: use of argon plasma coagulator to supplement piecemeal snare polypectomy.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Residual adenoma is frequently found at the site of endoscopically resected large sessile adenomas on follow-up examination. We evaluated the efficacy of a thermal energy source, the argon plasma coagulator, to destroy visible residual adenoma after piecemeal resection of sessile polyps. METHODS Seventy-seven piecemeal polypectomies with or… (More)
