This retrospective study analyses the value of endoscopic polypectomy as the operation of choice in cases of early invasive colorectal carcinoma located on the adenomatous polyp. Under these conditions the authors outline their therapeutic strategy, based not only on the histological characteristics of lesions, but also on the evaluation of the risk/benefit ratio established in relation to the characteristics of each individual patient.
