Delayed Post-Polypectomy Bleeding (DPPB) is an uncommon but serious adverse event. Some factors have been reported to be closely related to DPPB, including cardiovascular disease, hypertension, polyp size, and polyp location. Risk factors for DPPB have been widely investigated, but primary hyper fibrinolysis was overlooked. Here we reported a routine Endoscopic Mucosal Resection (EMR) that resulted in long hospitalization and increased expenses. This report provides some clinical information and treatment options for some similar cases.
