This retrospective study shows that endoscopic polypectomy is the technique of choice to remove the majority of polyps; follow-up and pathologic examinations shed light on the carcinogenesis of colorectal lesions. From January 1990 to December 2001, 1302 adenomatous polyps were removed, 1175 endoscopically, 127 with surgical procedures. The anatomical and morphologic conditions of the colon and some characteristics of the polyps represent limits to the feasibility and to the efficacy of polypectomy, and the most important variables for the correct management of the patients affected by colorectal adenomatous polyps.
