British Society of Gastroenterology position statement on serrated polyps in the colon and rectum

The British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG) Endoscopy section have commissioned a group to review available evidence and develop a position statement that provides clinical guidance on serrated polyps in the colon and rectum, until the evidence becomes available to support a formal guideline:

“The scope of the position statement was wide-ranging and included: evidence that serrated lesions have premalignant potential; detection and resection of serrated lesions; surveillance strategies after detection of serrated lesions; special situations—serrated polyposis syndrome (including surgery) and serrated lesions in colitis; education, audit and benchmarks and research questions.”
