EndoLoop Polypectomy Case
Large pedunculated polyp in the sigmoid colon
A look at the morphology:
Placement of the EndoLoop around the base of the stalk. A hook cutter/scissor was used to cut the loop, avoiding that the long ends would interfere with placement of the snare.
The EndoLoop looks OK, but was not placed completely correct. The loop is to close to the adenoma and had catched a tiny piece of the adenoma (on the back lower site). A second EndoLoop was placed “under” the first one closer to the wall of the colon.
A soft snare was used to resect/cut the stalk between the two EndoLoops
The speciment was collected for histology
The endoscope was inserted again for a final inspection of the resection.
