Lateral spreading tumours (LSTs) are superficial spreading neoplasms now increasingly diagnosed using chromoscopy. The clinicopathological features and safety of endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) for LSTs which can be either G-type "aggregate" and F-type "flat," has yet to be clarified in Western cohorts. This study is the largest progressive analysis of LSTs within the west. F-type lesions have a higher malignant potential than G-type and have a propensity for the right colon. G-type LSTs show low rates of sm3 invasion. EMR is a safe and effective therapy for LSTs, despite their large size.
