Effect of prophylactic clip placement following endoscopic mucosal resection of large colorectal lesions on delayed polypectomy bleeding: A meta-analysis.

Effect of prophylactic clip placement following endoscopic mucosal resection of large colorectal lesions on delayed polypectomy bleeding: A meta-analysis.

The position of prophylactic clipping for the prevention of delayed polypectomy bleeding (DPB) stays unclear and conclusions from prior meta-analyses are restricted because of the inclusion of selection of resection methods and polyp sizes. To conduct a meta-analysis on the impact of clipping on DPB following endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) of colorectal lesions ≥ 20 mm. METHODSWe carried out a … Read more
