Baltimore, Maryland 21205


Purpose:

For removal of large flat lesions of the gastro-intestinal tract injection of a solution under the lesion creates a "safety" cushion and protects from damage to the gastrointestinal tract wall. Various solutions are currently used, but some of them are easy to inject but quickly dissipate (normal saline),other solutions are more longer lasting (hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, hyaluronic acid, etc) but are very difficult to inject and can be expensive and not always available. The investigators performed previously animal experiments which demonstrated that blood is easy to inject and creates a protective cushion which lasts longer than other fluids which are currently used for protective cushion creation.


Study summary:

For removal of large flat lesions of the gastro-intestinal tract injection of a solution under the lesion creates a "safety" cushion and protects from damage to the gastrointestinal tract wall. Various solutions are currently used, but some of them are easy to inject but quickly dissipate (normal saline),other solutions are more longer lasting (hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, hyaluronic acid, etc) but are very difficult to inject and can be expensive and not always available. The investigators decided to use blood drawn from the patient for injection under the lesion. The investigators performed previously animal experiments which demonstrated that blood is easy to inject and creates a protective cushion which lasts longer than other fluids which are currently used for protective cushion creation. Blood can also have local hemostatic action preventing from bleeding during polypectomy.
