Management of gallbladder polyps
Shah T., Wong T.
Polypoid lesions of the gallbladder (PLG) are a common finding on trans-abdominal ultrasound scan (USS). Once discovered the exact nature of the PLG must be elucidated to avoid unnecessary removal of benign lesions. This is particularly difficult for the intermediate sized PLG (5-15 mm). Recent developments, however, such as the higher resolution of USS and the availability of endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), mean that the management of PLG can be refined. In this review we outline methods for differentiating malignant from benign lesions and discuss their appropriate management.
