ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a study related to endoscopic mucosal resection for a safe and effective non-surgical option in the management of colorectal polyps. Colonoscopic polypectomy plays a major role in preventing colorectol cancer. However, resection of sessile, brood based pedunculated and flat lesions carries a high risk of perforation. Within the research unit, EMR appeared to be safe and effective procedure in the resection of early cancers and polyps not suitable for conventional polypectomy. These data would support prompt referral of lesions fulfilling these criteria to specialist units offering this service to avoid unnecessary surgery.
