MR performs an adequate study of the rectal wall layers and is very exact to determine the affection of mesorectal fascia, but is less accurate to evaluate T1-T2 tumors. Depth of invasion Histologically, polyps are classified by several factors but perhaps the most important classificatiion is the depth of invasion. The aim of this study is to collect the prognostic factors established in different studies, trying to unify them and aiming to establish clear indications of definitive endoscopic treatment haghitt recommendations of follow up that clarify a controversial theme in the clinical practice.

OK Role of colonoscopy in the treatment of classificatino polyps Pathology of malignant colorectal polyps Assessing the risk of residual disease post-polypectomy. Endoscopic diagnosis With endoscopic view some features of colorectal lesions may be observed, suggesting submucosal invasion.

Sm 1invasion into upper third; Sm 2invasion into middle third; Sm 3invasion into lower third. CA Cancer J Clin. While they can be helpful, these classifications haggtit still poorly standardized globally, which can lead to marked interobserver variability[ 10 ].

This has also been shown by some to be a poor prognostic feature[ hagigtt – 22 ]. Laparoscopy provides the benefits of less postoperative pain, quicker recovery of bowel function postoperatively, claesification hospital stays, improved cosmesis, and earlier return to normal activities without compromising oncologic lcassification 2627 ].

Endoscopic mucosal resection and endoscopic submucosal dissection. Cancer Statistics Working Group. Laparoscopic and minimally invasive resection of malignant colorectal disease. The investigators showed that only 5. Actually, the pit pattern hagvitt in amplification colonoscopy allows to differentiate a non-invasive adenoma pits I-IV from invasive carcinoma pit V and predict somehow the depth of tumor invasion before performing a treatment, improving the accuracy of endoscopic diagnosis of early colorectal cancer, mainly in depressed lesions 21, Sm1a or Sm1b lesions without invasion never develop metastases.


The latter are often, understandably, more difficult to completely remove with conventional snare polypectomy, depending on their location within the colon and their size. In depressed lesions, the presence of bleeding points, the disruption of the mucosal capillary pattern and the local deformation of the wall are suspicious signs. Endoscopic Mucosal Resection Dr. Risk factors for an adverse outcome in early invasive colorectal carcinoma.

Dis Colon Rectum ; Treatment of carcinoma in classifkcation. There is a strong controversy to decide when endoscopic treatment is enough or when surgical resection is necessary. 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.

For these patients formal oncologic surgical resection is indicated. Furthermore, the size of the polyp is associated with haggittt of malignancy, with studies showing the presence of cancer in 1. Laparoscopic bowel mobilization combined with intraoperative colonoscopic polypectomy in patients with an inaccessible polyp of the colon.

Macroscopic classification Diverse classifications have been proposed to define the different types of polypoid and sessile lesions and depending on them, different indications for endoscopic resection of colorectal lesions.

Is endoscopic polypectomy an adequate therapy for malignant colorectal adenomas? Operative blood loss and use of blood products after laparoscopic and conventional open colorectal operations.

Morphologically, polyps cpassification be broadly classified as either pedunculated or sessile.

Haggitt classification

Most authors suggest initial follow up endoscopy in mo but the duration of subsequent surveillance varies[ 810 ]. However, use of this classification system can prove challenging for pathologists if the endoscopically resected specimen does not include a significant portion of the submucosa or some of the muscularis propria, which would define the deepest border of the submucosa.


Following this classification, lesions type 0-IIa0-IIb smaller than 2 cm and 0-IIc smaller than 1 cm were amenable for endoscopic mucosal resection, and not recommendable in depressed or ulcerated ones 16, Prognostic factors in colorectal carcinomas arising in adenomas: Is endoscopic polypectomy an adequate therapy for malignant colorectal adenomas? Level 0 indicates carcinoma in situ or intramucosal carcinoma.

Polyps and Polyposis Coli: Management of the Malignant Polyp

Yahagi N, Yamamoto H. Larger, sessile polyps should be referred to advanced endoscopists for consideration for EMR or ESD with the ultimate goal of complete, intact resection for histological evaluation. The inability to lift a polyp with submucosal injection heralds the potential for deeper invasion by malignancy, and indicates suitability for endoscopic management.

To make this website work, we log user data and share it with processors. Colon and rectal neoplasms are characterized by: J Am Coll Surg. From colonic polyps to colon cancer: Endoscopic mucosal resection for early colorectal neoplasia: Most colonic adenomas are considered as precursors of colorectal carcinomas.

Polyps – Where do they come from and what do you do with them?!

Adenomatous polyps harboring a focus of adenocarcinoma are a complex problem. Ultimately, cclassification endoscopic assessment of polyps can be a subjective process that can vary between endoscopists.

Endoscopic mucosal resection of colon polyps. Polyps are simply defined as a macroscopic protrusion of the colonic mucosa into the bowel lumen.

For en bloc resections of endoscopically completely resected tumors without bad prognostic factors, 5-years survival is similar to that obtained after surgical resection. The haggiyt of lymph node metastasis in colorectal polyps with invasive adenocarcinoma.

Suitable polyps should be resected en-blocif possible, to facilitate thorough evaluation by pathology. Historically, most colorectal adenomas were considered polypoid structures, allowing an easy endoscopic resection.

Removal of a polyp via piecemeal technique will complicate the histologic interpretation of the margin, and should be avoided. Kashida H, Kudo SE.
