  • Some patients had more than one LNPCP resulting that the number of patients and LNPCPs do not match.

  • *Excluded from the analyses as this is a distinct polyp category.

  • †In two patients, the polyp was not removed due to comorbidity resulting that no histology was available. These LNPCPs were excluded from further analyses.

  • CRC, colorectal cancer; HGD, high-grade dysplasia; LGD, low-grade dysplasia; LNPCP, large non-pedunculated colorectal polyp; SSA/P, sessile serrated adenoma/polyp; TSA, traditional serrated adenoma.
