A gastric polypectomy was performed using the same technic with flexible fiberoptic instruments that has been successful in the removal of colonic polyps. The patient was a poor surgical operative risk and had obstructive symptoms from a prepyloric adenomatous polyp which prolapsed into the duodenal bulb. The polypectomy was performed with ease, and no complications were encountered. The entire polyp was retrieved for pathologic examination. On follow-up examination one month later a small healed stump was all that remained at the site of the previous gastric polyp.
