By using a colonoscope diathermy snare a total of 75 polyps have been removed from sites throughout the colon in 43 patients. There was some haemorrhage in four cases but no other morbidity, and all patients were discharged home within 24 hours. The ease of this procedure suggests that it should replace colotomy and surgical polypectomy in the management of polyps inaccessible to the rigid sigmoidoscope.
