Using the latest spectral imaging colour enchancement techniques for increased accuracy
This involves injecting a solution underneath the lesion to ‘lift’ it off the muscle layer of the colon, allowing the deployment of a snare wire and application of cautery to remove the polyp.
This is an endoscopic technique of removing larger polyps which are not suitable for removal using the standard forceps or snare cautery. A dedicated endoscope and cutting device is used to perform a precise excision of the lesion without penetration into the deeper layers of the muscle wall. Selected early cancers of the colon may be amenable to this form of treatment. Do check with our specialists to see if this is an option.
