To evaluate duodenal polyps, divided into non-neoplastic and neoplastic lesions. In addition, the clinical characteristics of duodenal hyperplastic polyps are determined. We analyzed medical records of 50,114 consecutive patients submitted to for first diagnostic esophago-gastroduodenoscopy between January 2004 and December 2009. We excluded lesions on the ampulla of Vater and submucosal tumors. We studied 510 cases that were diagnosed endoscopically with duodenal polyps and enrolled a total of 221 cases that had undergone tissue biopsy. We analyzed the differences between non-neoplastic and neoplastic lesions, and determined the clinical features of duodenal hyperplastic polyps. Non-neoplastic lesions were found in 196 patients and neoplastic lesions in 25 patients. On univariate analysis, there were significant differences in shape, location, and size. Polyps more than 10 mm in diameter or polyps in the second portion had independent risk factors for being neoplastic lesions, as identified by multivariate analysis. In 23 cases of hyperplastic polyps (79.3%), they were accompanied by gastro-duodenal pathology, which was possibly associated with Helicobacter pylori. Polyps of more than 10 mm or polyps in the second portion of t...Continue Reading

Atrophic Gastritis is a process where gastric glandular cells are lost and replaced with firbous tissues, as a result of chronic inflammation. Learn more about Atrophic Gastritis here.
