A randomized trial aimed at determining whether or not hemoclips are effective in preventing post-polypectomy bleeds on polyps that are 10mm in size or greater.
At our VA hospital, in general, it is the policy of our GI lab to not stop our patients anti-platelet therapy whenever they see us for a routine colonoscopy. We do this because we believe the risk of stopping these sort of medications outweigh the risks of a complication from a colonoscopy. Therefore, we are enrolling patients who are either on clopidogrel or prasugrel or not on any anti-platelet/anti-coagulant therapy that come to our GI lab routine colonoscopies. We perform the procedure just like we normally would and then follow-up with the patient 7 and 30 days after their procedure.
