Video-based polypectomy tool efficiently assesses endoscopists’ skills

A team of researchers developed a new tool that can assess competence in cold snare polypectomy using a simplified, video-based approach, according to data published in Gastrointestinal Endoscopy.
Swati G. Patel, MD, of the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Center, and colleagues wrote that the current standard polypectomy assessment tool — the Direct Observation of Polypectomy Skills (DOPyS) tool — is not entirely feasible for cold snare polypectomy because not all of its factors are applicable for cold snare, and it was not designed for video-based assessments.
