A recent study uncovered adenoma detection rates significantly higher than those set in national guidelines.

People with Lynch syndrome who eat a lot of snack foods were twice as likely as others with this condition to develop colorectal adenomas.

Detection of easy-to-miss precancerous polyps improves with brief training class


A 2-hour course designed to increase clinicians' adenoma detection rate (ADR) made a big difference, even for experienced endoscopists.

Study suggests 10-year colonoscopy rescreen not needed after first negative result

It may be reasonable to use methods other than colonoscopy to rescreen people who had negative results on their first screening colonoscopy.

New colonoscopy schedule mirrors prior advice

Two of three main recommendations for colonoscopy surveillance are now supported by stronger evidence than they were in 2006.

Split-dose prep improves colonoscopy

Dividing bowel preparation solution into two doses resulted in better preparation quality, detection rates, and colonoscopy completion rates.

Colonoscopy factors trump polyp traits in cancer risk

Characteristics of the colonoscopy rather than those of the adenomas removed may be the most significant determinants of colorectal cancer risk.

Varied Mutation Prevalence in Multiple Colorectal Adenomas

Varied Mutation Prevalence in Multiple Colorectal Adenomas

For patients with multiple colorectal adenomas, prevalence of APC, MUTYH mutations varies.

Study supports longer scope intervals post-polypectomy

Study supports longer scope intervals post-polypectomy

Significant risk reduction within 5 years for both genders, all ages, those with high-risk polyps.

Laxative-free virtual colonoscopy can detect large polyps


CT colonography can accurately detect adenomas 10 mm or larger in patients who did not undergo laxative-induced bowel cleansing before the procedure.

Virtual colonoscopy is an accurate screen in seniors

Virtual colonoscopy is an accurate screen in seniors

CT colonography accurately detects cancer and precancerous polyps in persons aged 65 years and older.

Review supports aspirin for cancer prevention

Provocative evidence indicates that daily aspirin at doses of 75 mg and above might lower overall cancer incidence and overall cancer mortality.

Study will compare stool DNA screens with colonoscopy

Researchers at Seidman Cancer Center in Cleveland are recruiting patients for a study of a new, noninvasive technology for colon cancer screening.

Polyps missed after poor colonoscopy prep

Adenomas and high-risk lesions were frequently detected on repeat colonoscopy, suggesting the lesions were missed on initial colonoscopy.

Colonoscopic Removal of Adenomas Cuts CRC Mortality

Colonoscopic Removal of Adenomas Cuts CRC Mortality

And, more adenomatous polyps identified with colonoscopy than fecal immunochemical testing.

CT colonography raises screening rates, but colonoscopy finds more advanced neoplasia

Offering CT colonography improved participation in colorectal cancer screening by more than 50% compared with colonoscopy, but colonoscopy identified significantly more advanced neoplasia.

Colorectal screening is increasing, but not enough

Although colorecetal cancer screening rose from 52% in 2002 to 65% in 2010, that still leaves approximately one-third of adults untested, says a new report from the CDC.

Lower lip holds clue to hereditary colon cancer syndrome

Abnormally dense blood vessel growth in the mouth may signal familial adenomatous polyposis, which causes colorectal adenomas in teens and progresses to cancer if colectomy is not done.

Better FOBT targeting could reduce screening burden for seniors

A study makes a case for targeting colorectal cancer screening in older adults so that those who will benefit do get tested, and those who won't benefit aren't exposed to unnecessary burdens.

Automated reminder system nearly doubles colonoscopy compliance rate

A simple system of letters and telephone calls using electronic medical records significantly improved adherence to endoscopic follow-up recommendations among persons due for a colonoscopy examination.

Lynch syndrome: Identifying patients at risk for HNPCC

Lynch syndrome: Identifying patients at risk for HNPCC

Identifying families at risk improves screening and counseling of patients at risk for hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer.

Lack of sleep may raise risk for colorectal cancer

Shorter duration of sleep significantly increased a person's risk of developing colorectal adenomas—a finding that suggests sleep duration as a novel risk factor for colorectal neoplasia.

Aspirin and colorectal adenoma

Aspirin is effective for secondary prevention of colorectal adenoma, according to the results of a meta-analysis.
