Dr. Doug Adler, GIE Senior Associate Editor, chats with Dr Saurabh Chandan about his article “Efficacy and histologic accuracy of underwater versus conventional endoscopic mucosal resection for large (>20 mm) colorectal polyps: a comparative review and meta-analysis” from the September issue.
Our guest for the September 2021 GIE Podcast is Dr Saurabh Chandan, Assistant Professor, Department of Gastroenterology & Hepatology, CHI Creighton University, Omaha, Nebraska. Dr Adler and Dr Chandan discuss Dr Chandan’s article in the new issue of GIE, “Efficacy and histologic accuracy of underwater versus conventional endoscopic mucosal resection for large (>20 mm) colorectal polyps: a comparative review and meta-analysis.” The discussion covers what underwater EMR is, how it works, who can perform it, and how it compares to standard colonic EMR in terms of technical and clinical success, R0 resection rates, and adverse events. Many physicians who perform underwater EMR will find the podcast of interest, and anybody who is considering adding the technique to their repertoire should have a listen as well. You may find some of the results very surprising!
