Abstract

Advanced endoscopic resection techniques are important to ensure adequate removal of complex or large colorectal polyps. Mounting evidence suggests endoscopic resection as a safer, more cost-effective modality [1-3], compared to surgical resection. Multiple society guidelines now recommend endoscopic resection as the first step for the management of complex benign colon polyps. In this article, we will discuss the assessment and technical aspects of advance resection for the management of complex colorectal polyps.
