Adopting the classification system for gastric tumors, we did find histologically "de novo" fibrosis of the submucosal layer for LST-NG (2 pF2 and 9 pF1 of 16 lesions) and also for LST-G (2 pF2 and 7 pF1 of 16 lesions).
The mean (SD) length of LST-Gs measured on a straight line was 17.28 mm (4.33) and 13.82 mm (2.84) for LST-NGs.
Firstly, the muscularis mucosae of LST-NGs were almost flatwithout the submucosal protrusions that were observed in the majority of LST-Gs (Figure 5).
In this sense, we found that while the muscularis mucosae of LST-Gs was irregular due to the presence of submucosal protrusions it was almost lineal in LST-NGs.
We found that the granular portion of LST-Gs has that pattern of blood supply whereas LST-NGs were supplied by more uniformly distributed small caliber vessels.
