Principles of polypectomy

► thorough inspection of the entire polyp (size, test depression against the bowel wall), possible changing of patient position,

► determine number of sessions (according to number and size of polyps),

► polypectomy and polyp retrieval from proximal to distal,

► histological evaluation of all polyp fragments,

► potentially remaining polyp pieces should be retrieved from fluid evacuated from the bowels using a polyp sieve (Fig. 18.1).
