High Resolution Images: Hyperplastic Polyps in a Hiatal Hernia

The endoscopic images in this site are mostly quite compressed in order to make the transmissions times as short as possible. Sometimes it is however nice to have high resolution images, for example for publications, text books or lectures. In these "high resolution files" some larger images are displayed.

Just click on any image to get a magnification (and then click "Back" on Your browser). Click here to get back to the index page.

Gastrikc hyperplastic polyps and an hiatal hernia seen with the endoscope in an inverted position in the stomach

Hyperplastic polyps Benign polyps that can be found anywhere in the digestive canal, however most often in the stomach (and as in these images also in a hiatal hernia) and in the rectum. These nonneoplastic polyps are usually solitary and small, with a size below 1 cm. They are also called regenerative or inflammatory polyps. Malignant change in a hyperplastic polyp is very rare, but hyperplastic polyps in the stomach may indicate an elevated risk of gastric cancer elsewhere in the stomach.
