A case report of a patient presenting with a benign tubulovillous adenoma colon polyp with malignant potential shows how endoluminal surgery offers an alternative to extensive bowel resection.
Cleveland Clinic colorectal surgeon Emre Gorgun, MD, has employed a new multi-channel advanced endoscopy instrument to aid endoluminal visualization, retraction and dissection of large, complex polyps. The approach may make endoscopic submucosal dissection less difficult to perform, and help some patients avoid colectomy and preserve bowel.
