Hot Snare Versus Hot Snare Polypectomy With Saline Injection for Colorectal Polyps

2014-09-30 16:38:22 | BioPortfolio


The complete removal of colorectal polyp is required to prevent tumor recurrence and development of potential interval cancers. However, several studies have shown high incomplete resection rate in endoscopic removal of neoplastic colorectal polyps larger than 5 mm. The polypectomy techniques using hot snare are usually used for the removal of these polyps. However, the optimal technique for complete resection of these polyps is unknown. There are few data comparing hot snare polypectomy with hot snare polypectomy after saline injection for complete resection of colorectal polyps (5mm or larger). The aim of this study is to compare hot snare polypectomy with hot snare polypectomy after saline injection for removal of 5-10mm sized colorectal polyps.

Removal of minerals from bones during bone examination.

Surgical removal of an obstructing clot or foreign material which has been transported from a distant vessel by the bloodstream. Removal of a clot at its original site is called THROMBECTOMY.

Removal of an implanted therapeutic or prosthetic device.

Surgical removal of an obstructing clot or foreign material from a blood vessel at the point of its formation. Removal of a clot arising from a distant site is called EMBOLECTOMY.

SNARE proteins in which the central amino acid residue of the SNARE motif is a GLUTAMINE. They are classified separately from the R-SNARE PROTEINS where the central amino acid residue of the SNARE motif is an ARGININE. Subfamilies, the QA-SNARES; QB-SNARES; and QC-SNARES are grouped by the position of their SNARE motif-containing-domains in the SNARE complex and by their sequence similarities.
