Recently the EMR method has become the basic technique for colonoscopic therapy. However, it is very dangerous because the wall of the colon is thin and soft. Accordingly, endoscopists have to obtain informed consent from patients, and discover how to adapt EMR for their neoplastic lesions. They also have to be well aware of the basic important steps in EMR, e.g. selection of a suitable snare, positioning of the colonoscope, how to carry out injection and snaring, and how to deal with the excised species etc.

 They need also to avoid an attitude of overconfidence, considering that the purpose of EMR is not just excision, but also to benefit the patient for the future.
