Abstract
Authors compared Nd:YAG laser and the transrectal microsurgery in the treatment of large sessile polyps of distal rectal stump. Disadvantages of using of the laser technique is necessity to repeat laser sessions and impossibility of the correct histology specimens of all adenomatous polyps. Necessity of general or spinal anesthesy, great diameter of operative rectoscope in contrast of the relative narrow optical field restricted usability of transrectal microsurgery in the treatment of large sessile adenomatous polyps of the rectum. Greatest advantage of laser treatment is using of the standard colonoscopy device in the outpatient procedure in contrast of the expensive transrectal microsurgery device which need special training of the medical staff. In conclusion authors considered Nd:YAG laser of the method of choice in the treatment of large sessile adenomatous polyps of distal rectal stump.
