The purpose of the study is to verify if the ablation of lesions (polyps, adenomas) in the large (and small) intestine can be facilitated by using a traction on the lesions.

Enrollment: 7
Study Start Date: July 2009
Study Completion Date: March 2010
Primary Completion Date: March 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: mucosa resection Device: traction assisted endoscopic mucosa resection
A haemoclip is connected to suture material and will be fixed (next) to a polyp to allow traction and lifting the lesion in order to facilitate its resection with a loop.
Other Name: endoscopic polypectomy

Detailed Description:

We want to facilitate the ablation of lesions (polyps, adenomas) in the large (and small) intestine by using a traction assisted technique.

The traction will be performed by using a haemoclip connected to surgical suture materials. The haemoclip will be fixed to the intestinal mucosa next to the lesion and a loop will be mounted to perform an endoscopic mucosal resection.

The aim of the study is to show the feasibility of this technique.
