This is the case of an 83-year-old woman who presented with per rectal bleeding. She had flexible sigmoidoscopy, which showed a 1.5 to 2cm flat polyp with central depression and non-lifting sign. CT-scan of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis was performed and showed no metastasis. The case was discussed with the multidisciplinary team and decision was made to perform an endoscopic full-thickness colonic resection. The case was performed using the colonic FTRD® set (OVESCO™). The procedure was completed successfully and the patient was discharged on postoperative day 1. During the postoperative follow-up, the resection margin was clear. This is the first case performed in the North-East of England to our knowledge. Since this case, we have performed another case.
