Removal of a polyp in the digestive system, usually during a colonoscopy or endoscopy procedure. A wire loop is placed over the polyp and then a very low electrical current is passed through the wire as the wire is moved such that the polyp is removed by the movement of the wire through the base of the polyp. The electrical current in the wire helps to cauterize the polyp removal location to reduce bleeding and prevent infection.

(pol-ee-PEC-toe-mee) Removal of a polyp during a colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy.
Removal of a polyp by surgery. In the case of polyps in the colon , polypectomy may be done by open abdominal surgery or, more commonly today, by colonoscopy . During colonoscopy, a small polyp may be snipped off with a biopsy forceps and larger polyps may be removed by putting a snare around the polyp base and burning through the tissue with electric cautery. Rarely is a polyp too large to remove by colonoscopy. The most common complications of polypectomy include bleeding and perforation (creating a hole in the colon).
