Abstract

Abstract

Background: In Western countries the most common polyps are adenomatous.(1)There are no studies from Albania regarding of polyps in colorectal area.

 

Objectives: Our aim was to evaluate the predominant colorectal polyps in our two centers  of Albania.

 

Material and Methods: We retrospectively analyzed the pathology reports of colonoscopies during a five-year study (2008 - 2013).

 

Results: During these years, patients with colorectal polyps were referred to these two centers. The most common types of polyps were adenomatous 300 (72.99%), followed by hyperplastic 69 (16.78%), inflammatory25 (6.08 %) and juvenile 17 (4.13%).

 

Discussion: Adenomatous polyps are the most frequently found polyps in our study. There are no studies from Albaniaregarding the distribution of different types of colorectal polyps. Therefore in this study we tried to evaluate the frequency of colorectal polyps  concerning their type, age and gender.
