Gastric serrated adenoma polyp treated with endoscopic band ligation (with video)

Surg Laparosc Endosc Percutan Tech. 2010 Dec;20(6):e204-5. doi: 10.1097/SLE.0b013e3181fd27ab.


Serrated adenoma of the stomach has been very rarely reported. A 34-year-old woman underwent upper gastrointestinal endoscopy showing a serrated adenoma polyp at the posterior wall of the junction of the fundus and body of the stomach. The polyp was situated in a technically difficult area to perform a polypectomy with a snare. A banding ligation of the polyp was performed with a pneumoactivated esophageal variceal ligation device. At the follow-up, the base of the polyp was free of adenoma. Beside several other polypectomy techniques, the band ligation technique may be used in removing of the gastric polyps, which is cheap, safe and technically easy to perform.
