Authors' objectives:

The purpose of this report is to assess the evidence available on the efficacy, safety and coverage policy-related issues of endoscopic mucosal resection in colon polyps.

Authors' recommendations: The available evidence is mainly results from case series. EMR is a procedure used in sessile adenomatous or flat polyps and in those polyps presenting well-differentiated or moderately-differentiated adenocarcinomas confined to the mucosa or extended to the superficial submucosa. The rate of complete resection ranged from 48% to 96% in the reference studies. The rate of complications varied among the different studies, being approximately 5% for bleeding and 1% for perforation. The size of the lesion and the endoscopist's experience were closely related with the success in complete resections.
