Abstract: EMR of advanced mucosal neoplasia (AMN) (ie, sessile or laterally spreading lesions of ≥20 mm) of the colon has become an increasingly popular alternative to surgical resection. However, data regarding safety and mortality of EMR in comparison to surgery are limited. The objective of the study was to compare actual endoscopic with predicted surgical mortality. The design was of a prospective, observational, multicenter cohort study. The setting was a high-volume, tertiary-care referral center.
