Polypectomy

From Wikipedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Polypectomy is the medical term for the removal of a polyp. Polypectomy can be performed by excision if the polyp is external (on the skin). Gastrointestinal polyps can be removed endoscopically through colonoscopy or esophagogastroduodenoscopy, or surgically if the polyp is too large to be removed endoscopically.

Colonic polypectomy

The method used to perform polypectomies during colonoscopy depends on the size, shape and histological type of the polyp to be removed. Prior to performing polypectomy, polyps can be biopsied and examined histologically to determine the need to perform polypectomy.

Small polyps (less than 5mm)

Small polyps can removed by hot biopsy: biopsy forceps are closed over the polyp, and electric current is passed through the forceps to provide electrocautery. This reduces the chances of bleeding from the polyp base, and improves the chance of complete removal of the polyp by destroying the tissue at the base of the polyp.

Very small polyps (up to 3mm) can be removed by cold biopsy, where biopsy forceps alone are used to remove the polyp, without electrocautery; but risks incomplete removal of the polyp, but reduces the risk of colonic perforation. These polyps may also be removed by fulguration using Argon plasma coagulation to destroy the polyp; the disadvantage of this technique is that no tissue is obtained for histological analysis.

Slightly larger polyps (4-8mm) may be removed by snare cautery (see below).

Larger, sessile polyps

These polyps are more difficult to remove endoscopically, and polypectomy in these cases has a higher risk of complication. Sessile polyps up to 10mm can often be removed by snare polypectomy. Polyps over 10mm may have to be removed piecemeal by snare polypectomy. The use of electrocautery over a large area has a significant risk of causing colonic perforation; to reduce this chance, and to facilitate the polypectomy, sterile fluid (saline or colloid, with methylene blue dye added) can be injected under the base of the polyp to raise it away from the muscular layers of the colon.

Larger, pedunculated polyps

Pedunculated polyps can be removed by snare polypectomy. When the polyp is identified, a polypectomy snare is passed over the polyp and around the stalk of the polyp. The loop of the snare is then tightened to grip the polyp stalk, and the polyp is pulled away from the wall of the colon. An electric current is then passed through the snare loop to cut through the polyp stalk, while providing electrocautery at the same time. The polyp can then be retrieved using the snare, or an endoscopy basket, and removed by withdrawing the colonoscope.

Complications

The commonest complications of colonic polypectomy are bleeding and colonic perforation.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
