    00:00 Let's talk about gastric polyps. Histologically divided as hyperplastic polyp associated with adjacent injury, Adenomatous polyp associated with atrophic gastritis. Adenomatous polyp considered pre−malignant. Any time that you have a polyp, you never leave it behind. Same concept applies to your colonic polyps. When we do our colonic polyps, we’ll be doing our tubular and our villous. The tubular has less of a chance of going on to malignancy but it still could, and you never leave a polyp behind. Here, the same concept.

    00:42 Hyperplastic and fundic polyps are not pre−malignant. Hyperplastic and fundic polyps, not so much.

    00:51 The adenomatous polyps, however, more so. But in general, you always remove a polyp.
