Abstract

Transanal endoscopic microsurgical polypectomy was furthermore demonstrated to be a low-risk procedure with a low recurrence rate for the complete resection of large rectal polyps. At a follow-up rate of 61.1 %, the incidence of metachronous carcinoma ranged at 3.1%, which is markedly below the rate of 8-18% for tubulovillous or villous adenomas larger than 1 cm in diameter cited in the literature.
