Does prophylactic Endoclip placement during colonoscopic biopsy reduce the incidence of late hemorrhage?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
For smaller polyps (<10 mm), there is no benefit to the prophylactic use of Endoclips to prevent delayed postpolypectomy bleeding. (SOR: B, based on 1 RCT.) Prophylactic use of Endoclips may reduce the rate of all bleeding in removal of larger polyps (>15 mm) or smaller polyps in patients on anticoagulant therapy. (SOR: C, based on 3 case series.)
