Adenoma - flat 2
This 59-year-old white female had no reported complaints and normal laboratory findings. She had been referred for preventive screening colonoscopy.
The videoclip shows a very flat tumor of about 2-3 cm in diameter in the upper rectum. At its margin, one has the impression that the blood vessels pass beneath the tumor. Thus, the tumor is clearly demarcated from its surroundings. Histological examination of the biopsy material revealed a tubulovillous adenoma with mild dysplasia.
This flat adenoma is well suited for mucosectomy.
