Commentary on “Guidelines for the management of large non-pedunculated colorectal polyps” by the BSG/Association of Coloproctologist of GB and Ireland

Lee Swanstrom, Galyna Shabat


The guidelines for the management of large non-pedunculated colorectal polyps (LNPCPs) was created in cooperation between the British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG) and the Association of Coloproctologist of Great Britain and Ireland, and was largely similar to the first guidelines in this area from these Societies (1). The authors this year searched, analyzed and showed in the list of recommendation the results of important new investigations in this field. Their guidelines have a specific structure and consist of key recommendation about definitions; service provision and management principles; lesion assessment; endoscopic management: pre-procedure, peri-procedure and post-procedure; and surgical management of LNPCPs. The authors also talk about the importance of advanced polypectomy training and accreditation.
