ESCP were honoured to catch up with taTME pioneer Dr Patricia Sylla from Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. Alongside Dr Antonio Lacy, Dr Sylla performed the first ever taTME procedure, so we were delighted to have both involved in our taTME month.

Regarding benign tumours of the colon and rectum the following entities should be differentiated: Non-neoplastic and Neoplastic lesions, Mesenchymal lesions and furthermore other lesions (f.e. endometriosis). Epithelial lesions mostly are polyps. The term “polyp” is defined as any projection of tissue into the lumen of the digestive tract. Non-neoplastic epithelial polyps are the result of abnormal mucosal maturation, inflammation or architecture. They have no tendency to malignant transformation. In contrast neoplastic epithelial lesions are resulting from proliferative dysplasia. They are categorized as adenomatous polyps or adenomas. These are premalignant lesions. Mesenchymal lesions are originating from connective tissue cells and are located in the submucosal or mural layer. Sometime they are summarized with other non-epithelial lesions as polypoid tumours. In the following etiology, symptoms, diagnosis end treatment of all these several lesions are explicitley explained and discussed.
