Here we present our TSPAM experience on rectal adenomas (high-grade rectal adenomas in 5 cases and carcinoma in situ in 1 case). TSPAM is an innovative method that can be an affordable and disseminated alternative to transanal endoscopic microsurgery for the local excision of the rectal lesions. © 2012 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
