Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Complete endoscopic (visual) eradication of the polyp with the first forceps bite [ Time Frame: one year ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of bites to completely visually eradicate the polyp if the polyp was not fully eradicated with the first forceps bite [ Time Frame: one year ]
  • Complete pathologic eradication of the polyp on the first forceps bite. [ Time Frame: one year ]
  • Correlate endoscopic with pathologic eradication [ Time Frame: one year ]
