Sessile serrated colon polyps (SSA/Ps) are precursors to colorectal cancer. In comparison to adenomatous polyps, SSA/P can be challenging to detect during colonoscopy; they are often minimally elevated, pale, and concealed behind mucus, a colonic fold, or intraluminal debris. Because they are typically flat, located in the right side of the colon, the same color as the background mucosa, and have indistinct borders, SSA/P resection also poses challenges. The authors present examples of typical SSA/Ps that illustrate pitfalls and pearls in SSA/P detection and resection. This article is part of an expert video encyclopedia.
