Management of the Malignant Polyp

However, the treatment of larger lesions can be more challenging and require more advanced techniques, such as endoscopic mucosal resection EMR or endoscopic submucosal dissection ESDwhich are being used with increasing frequency in specialized centers.

Histologic risk factors and clinical outcome in colorectal malignant polyp: This article discusses the important prognostic features of malignant polyps that will ultimately inform the overall management. This typically involves an initial submucosal injection of saline, or other suitable injectates, which elevates the identified lesion and facilitates gaggitt removal from the deeper layers with an electrocautery snare[ 2324 ].

Management is dependent on risk of lymph node metastasis, and therefore, risk of recurrence and spread.

Haggitt classification – Ganfyd

The United States Multi-Society Task Force on colorectal cancer and other international organizations have established clear guidelines on colonoscopy surveillance after polypectomy based on the size and number of adenomatous polyps excised[ 8plyps ].

Carcinomas invading to the neck of the polyp are considered level 2 lesions. Role of colonoscopy in the treatment of malignant polyps Pathology of malignant colorectal polyps Assessing the risk of residual disease post-polypectomy.

Low-risk polyps are characterized by the lack of these poor prognostic features and, if completely excised, can be managed adequately with conventional polypectomy and appropriate surveillance.


Low-cost, office-based, screening colonoscopy.

Haggitt classification

Principles and practice of surgery for the colon, rectum, and anus. Endoscopic submucosal dissection for colorectal lesions. Traditional open or laparoscopic procedures are routinely used for colectomy ot these patients. Level 0 indicates carcinoma in situ or intramucosal carcinoma. Post Colonoscopic polypectomy of rectal polyp Colonoscopy: If you wish to download it, please recommend it to your friends in any social system.

Fortunately, as image resolution has improved, there has also been an classificatkon improvement in the ability to further characterize the endoscopic appearance of these polypoid lesions. Using this risk stratification, Choi et al[ 22 ] reported a series of 87 patients that were followed prospectively after endoscopic resection of a malignant polyp.

Laparoscopy provides the benefits of less postoperative pain, quicker recovery of bowel function postoperatively, shorter hospital stays, improved cosmesis, and earlier return to normal activities without compromising oncologic results[ 26 classificatiion, 27 ].

Close endoscopic follow-up is required to detect local recurrence in the setting of an endoscopically managed malignant polyp. It is important that the polyp site be marked to facilitate identification at the time of surgery. Similar to EMR, ESD initially involves the saline lift of the polyp; however, this is followed by a mucosal incision and submucosal dissection with specialized endoscopic electrosurgical knives[ 2325 ].

Surveillance colonoscopy after polypectomy — how frequent?

Screening for colon malignancy with colonoscopy. My presentations Profile Feedback Log out. Conversely, insufflation of the colon for colonoscopy during laparoscopy classkfication the usable peritoneal space for pneumoperitoneum making the procedure more technically challenging. Systematic review and meta-analysis of histopathological factors influencing the risk of lymph node metastasis in early colorectal cancer. While this is not a routinely examined pathologic parameter, there is increasing evidence that the quantitative assessment of tumor budding reflects clinical aggressiveness of colon cancers.


Submucosal invasion was classified into thirds with Sm 1 lesions exhibiting invasion into the upper third of the submucosa, Sm 2 invasion into the middle third of the submucosa, and Sm 3 invasion into the lower third of the submucosa.

Genetics of colorectal polyps. Endoscopic Mucosal Resection Dr. Am J Clin Pathol ; High-quality polypectomy is the complete excision of the polyp, which should include the entire stalk to its base. Depth of submucosal invasion in sessile malignant polyps.

Polyps include adenomatous, inflammatory, hamartomatous, and hyperplastic lesions. Haggitt level 4 lesions with distal third submucosa invasion.

Author information Article notes Copyright and License information Disclaimer. Registration Forgot your password? Feedback Privacy Policy Feedback. Depth of invasion Histologically, polyps are classified by several factors but perhaps the most important feature is the depth of invasion.

Recurrence was confirmed by endoscopic biopsy, ultrasound-guided biopsy, or CT scan-guided biopsy. Yahagi N, Yamamoto H. Those suspicious for submucosal invasion or not deemed amenable baggitt endoscopic removal should be referred for definitive surgical resection.

Prevalence and malignant potential of colorectal polyps in asymptomatic, average-risk men.

Malignant colorectal polyps

Abstract Colon cancer remains a significant clinical problem worldwide and in the United States it is the third most common cancer diagnosed in men and women. Fukami N, Lee J H. A complete surveillance colonoscopy should be performed within 3 years of the initial polypectomy and then every 3 years thereafter pending any additional finding.

Indications for subsequent surgery after endoscopic resection of submucosally invasive colorectal carcinomas: The management of malignant polyps can be challenging and often requires a multidisciplinary approach.
