A retrospective study on pathological and clinical characteristics of 52 cases with the colorectal serrated polyp
Colorectal serrated polyp
Background and Objective: Colorectal serrated polyp is considered as histologically heterogeneous lesions with malignant potential. The aim of the study was to evaluate the endoscopic, clinic and pathologic characteristics of colorectal serrated polyps.
Methods: The endoscopic, clinic and pathologic characteristics of 52 cases with colorectal serrated polyps between January 2014 and May 2018 in our hospital were analyzed. retrospectively.
Results: The prevalence of serrated polyps was 0.39% (52/13,346). The proportions of hyperplastic polyp (HP), sessile serrated adenoma/polyp (SSA/P), and traditional serrated adenoma (TSA) of all serrated polyps were 61.5%, 17.3%, and 21.2%, respectively, which showed a lower proportion of TSA and SSA/P and a higher proportion of HP.
Conclusions: The overall detection rate of colorectal serrated polyps was relatively low, and it is necessary to discriminate between SSAPs and HPs during endoscopic examination because of the malignant potential.
