BACKGROUND With the advent of new endoscopic and laparoscopic techniques, the likelihood of colonoscopically unresectable adenomas harboring occult malignancy influences management. While prior studies have evaluated polyp size and morphology in assessing the risk of malignancy, the relative risk of cancer based on the presence or absence of high-grade dysplasia has not been systematically studied. METHODS For all lesions preoperatively diagnosed as adenomas without invasive cancer… CONTINUE READING
