Comparison of postpolypectomy bleeding events between cold snare polypectomy and hot snare polypectomy for small colorectal lesions: a large-scale propensity score–matched analysis

Post written by Hiroyuki Takamaru, MD, PhD, from the Endoscopy Division, National Cancer Center Hospital, Tokyo, Japan. We analyzed more than 12,000 colorectal lesions treated by cold snare polypectomy and 2400 treated by hot snare polypectomies. The rate of postpolypectomy bleeding after cold snare polypectomy was .1% compared with .5% after hot snare polypectomy. Next, …
