|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Colonic Polyps Adenomatous Polyps||Device: traction assisted endoscopic mucosa resection||Not Applicable|
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.
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|

|Actual Study Completion Date :||March 2010|
|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
- ablation of lesion in toto [ Time Frame: 1 week after intervention ]
- complications after resection [ Time Frame: within one week after intervention ]
