Surgical Removal of Polyps from the Colon

This medical exhibit details the two kinds of colon polyps - sessile and peduncular - and how to effectively remove them. The peduncular polyp is shown as a small growth hanging from a short stalk of tissue away from the mucosal lining of the colon. It is shown being removed with an electrocautery snare in an illustration to the right. The sessile polyp is shown as a closely adherent lump of tissue on the mucosal lining of the colon. It is shown being removed using multiple small 'bites' with an electrocautery snare in an illustration to the right.
