Endoscopic snare excision of large pediculated polyp.

Most pedunculated polyps are removed by transection of
the stalk with a polypectomy snare. The major risk with this approach is postpolypectomy bleeding. As a result, many endoscopists use one or more methods to reduce the risk of bleeding, particularly in polyps with wide stalks (pedicles larger than 1 to 1.5 cm in diameter).
