Abstract

Neoplastic lesions of ampulla, although infrequent, represent a significant portion of precancerous lesions arising within duodenum. Occurring either as sporadic, solitary lesion, or as a part of multiple adenomas within duodenum, due to its potential for malignant transformation, ampullary adenoma warrants a careful evaluation with the intention of curative resection when possible. The removal of ampullary lesion can be accomplished either surgically, or endoscopically if feasible. Here, we provide a brief review of endoscopic management of ampullary neoplasm.
