Prevalence of advanced histological features in diminutive and small colon polyps.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Investigators have proposed "predict, resect, and discard" strategies for diminutive (≤ 5 mm) or small (6-9 mm) polyps to reduce screening colonoscopy costs. Advanced histological features such as villous histology, high-grade dysplasia, and/or cancer in these polyps could deter adoption of these strategies. OBJECTIVE Determine the prevalence… (More)
