Antiplatelets, anticoagulants, and colonoscopic polypectomy.

The management of antiplatelet and anticoagulant (ie, antithrombotic) agents is challenging in the periendoscopic setting. In this state-of-the-art update, we review current best practice recommendations focusing on the risk of immediate and delayed postpolypectomy bleeding in the context of drug discontinuation (ie, temporary interruption) and drug continuation. The data regarding polypectomy technique (cold snare vs conventional thermal-based) and prophylactic placement of hemostatic clips are evaluated to assess whether these endoscopic techniques are beneficial in reducing postpolypectomy bleeding. Finally, clinical takeaways are provided to facilitate safer polypectomy among patients on antiplatelet and anticoagulant agents.
