This article highlights endoscopic mucosal resection as an evolving therapeutic strategy for non-polypoid colorectal neoplasia. Colorectal cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer death in Europe and the United States. Polypoid lesions are easy to detect by endoscopy but non-polypoid lesions are often overlooked. An important diagnostic tool for detection of non-polypoid colorectal lesions consists of chromoendoscopy. Researchers report their experience with colonoscopic resection of the colorectum. Selection of suitable lesions for endoscopic resection is of crucial clinical importance.
