Evaluation of gastric polyps in patients with upper gastrointestinal endoscopy [post]

2019 unpublished
BACKGROUND According to the study population, incidence of gastric polyps (GP) varies from 0.33% to 6.7% in various studies. Most GPs consist of proliferative polyps (HP), gastric fundus polyps (FGP) and adenomatous polyps (APs). Despite the high malignant AP potential, sporadic FGP has no malignant potential. On the contrary, HP has a lower risk of potential harm. It is not sufficient to perform biopsies to determine the presence of polyp types and displacements, therefore, some polyps may

METHODS This retrospective study included GP patients or polyphenic lesions with polyps or malignant histology found in polyps or gastroscopy at the Department of Gastroenterology, Shaanxi Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine from 2017 to 2019. RESULTS In a series of 10.000 upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, 384 patients (0.38%) were found to have GPs. Of these patients, 98 (25.5) were male and 286(74.5) were female. The average age of the patients was 62.8 ± 10.4 (36-75) years. HP, AP and FGP frequencies were 88.5%, 5.2% and 2.1%, respectively. The polyp size of 274 (71.3%) patients was ≤ 1 cm. Polyp was identified in 262 (68.2%) patients. The most common polyps are the antrum and the corpus. Endoscopic respiratory polypectomy was performed on 128 patients. Bleeding events have been observed and endoscopic treatment is required after ESP. CONCLUSION
