YRIBERRY URENA, Simón; COMBE GUTIERREZ, Juan; BARREDA BOLANOS, Fernando  and  LANDEO ALIAGA, Italo. Endoscopic resection of rectal carcinoid tumors: clasical and submucosal resection with band-snare method. Rev. gastroenterol. Perú [online]. 2010, vol.30, n.1, pp.60-64. ISSN 1022-5129.

Rectal isolated carcinoid tumor can de treated endoscopically and locally. There is concern about margin involvement due to the fact that there is inward migration of these lessions from the mucosa into deeper layers (submucosa), because of the internal origin in Kutchinsky cells, which are located between mucosa and submucosa (deep in the mucosa). We review and present 6 cases of rectal carcinoid tumors treated endoscopically with polypectomy, polypectomy plus sub mucosal elevation and band -snare-elevation resection. We review current techniques, benefits of elevation, and results from the Endoscopy Unit at the INEN or National Cancer Center (Instituto Nacional de Enfermedades Neoplásicas) in Lima-Perú.

Keywords : GI Carcinoid; Sub mucosal resection; Band-snare resection.
