Paper Abstract

Since 1988, 30 pieces of gastric polyps (25 cases) and 184 pieces of colonic polyps (73 cases) were diagnosed by endoscopy and pathology and removed with laser treatment in our department. No serious complications happened during and after polypectomies. In this group, the polyps were destroyed and disappeared through tissue carbonization and vaporization by using the high heat efficiency of endoscopic YAG laser. Follow-up endoscopy after 3 - 4 weeks showed the complete disappearance of polyps and the normal growth of mucosa of the wounds.
