Abstract In the time period from August 1986 to August 2001, a total of 10,260 gastrofibroscopic examinations were performed in our department. Gastric polyps were found in 28 patients--in 15 men and 13 women. Polypoid foveolar hyperplasia was present in 67.8\% patients, hyperplasiogenic polyps in 21.5\%, and adenomatous polyps in 10.7\% of patients. Multiple gastric polyposis was found in 3 patients: in two of them all polyps were removed and one patient has regular gastrofibroscopic checkups. We did not encounter complications after endoscopic polypectomy of the stomach in our study group. Polypectomy via gastrotomy was not performed in any of our patients.
