Roel M. M. Bogie et al. Endoscopic subtypes of colorectal laterally spreading tumors (LSTs) and the risk of submucosal invasion: a meta-analysis

A meta-analysis estimating the risk of submucosal invasion in laterally spreading tumors in the colon. The overall risk of submucosal cancer was below 10 %, so the majority of these lesions can be resected by piecemeal resection. Larger lesion size, presence of areas of concern (nodule or depression), and distal location determine whether en bloc resection should be considered.
