ID: 3525121 EFFICACY OF COLD SNARE ENDOSCOPIC MUCOSAL RESECTION FOR SESSILE SERRATED LESIONS COMPARED TO ADENOMATOUS LESIONS

      Background and Aim: Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) with a cold snare is gaining increasing acceptance as an effective therapy for large laterally spreading lesions in the colon. The cold snare technique offers a favorable risk profile, with low rates of bleeding, perforation, and post-procedure pain compared to the more widely used hot snare EMR technique. While there is increasing acceptance of cold snare EMR for the removal of medium (10-19mm) and large (≥20mm) sessile serrated lesions (SSLs), concerns remain about its suitability for the removal of similar sized adenomas. We aimed to study the differences in safety and efficacy of cold snare EMR for SSLs as compared to adenomas at our institution.
