Victoria Arthursson et al. Risk of recurrence after endoscopic resection of nonpedunculated T1 colorectal cancer

In patients with endoscopically resected T1 colorectal cancer (CRC), salvage surgery can subsequently be performed or, in cases where the risk of lymph node metastasis is low or the risk of surgery is high, endoscopic follow-up can be done. This retrospective registry-based study examined patients with nonpedunculated T1 CRC treated by only local excision and found a tumor recurrence risk of 4.7 % in these predominantly low risk lesions, with the strongest risk factor being rectal location.
