Laparoscopic assisted colonoscopic polypectomy aids in the safe excision of otherwise unresectable polyps with colonoscopy alone due to unfavorable locations or polyp charicteristics. A combined procedure allows for laparoscopy to assist in polypectomy by providing traction on the luminal wall, the ability to recognize a full thickness perforation and perform a segmental resection without delay and to spare the patient from multiple exposures to anesthesia.
