Investigators have developed an app that may aide clinicians in identifying hospitalized patients who may have inadequate colon cleansing prior to undergoing a colonoscopy.
Investigators from Germany conducted a population-based, case-control study to assess colorectal cancer risk.
The American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy convened a panel to create recommendations for the use of endoscopy in patients with familial adenomatous polyposis syndrome.
Investigators sought to assess risk of adverse events and recurrence associated with 2 commonly applied electrosurgical settings for polyp resection.
European guidelines for colorectal cancer screening advise that the interval cancer rate be expressed as a proportion of the background incidence rate.
Studies have recently shown that SARS-CoV-2 is present in the stool of infected patients, suggesting transmission risk.
As bariatric surgery has been found to be associated with reduced cancer risk in women with obesity, investigators sought to determine if the potential exists for an effect on risk for colorectal cancer.
The prevalence of diverticulosis has been increasing, and research has demonstrated an increased risk of underlying colorectal cancer in this population.
Computer-aided diagnosis software achieved area under the curve as good as experts and similar across 2 different imaging technologies (narrow-band imaging and blue-laser imaging) for characterizing colorectal lesions.
Investigators sought to determine whether patients with nonadvanced adenoma or small serrated polyps need more intensive surveillance than patients without polyps.
Researchers sought to determine the 10-year risk for developing advanced neoplasia and assessed whether baseline colonoscopy findings were associated with long-term outcomes.
Patients older than 25 years have significantly higher rates of OS and RFS at 3 and 5 years compared with patients younger than 25.
Artificial intelligence assistance system significantly increased the accuracy of colorectal polyp analysis by novice endoscopists, who achieved near-expert levels of accuracy without extra training.
The researchers sought to develop a deep neural network system for consistent, objective, and real-time analysis of endoscopic images from patients with ulcerative colitis.
The authors note that for patients with normal, high-quality colonoscopy, screening should be repeated in 10 years.
The prevalence of colorectal cancer screening is lowest among adults aged 50 to 54 years.
Patients with obesity undergoing bariatric surgery have the same risk for colorectal cancer as the general population.
Current guidance from the US Preventive Services Task Force recommends against screening patients older than 85 years for colorectal cancer.
Investigators evaluated the preclinical burden of colorectal cancer by examining its incidence in 1-year age increments, with an emphasis on the transition between ages 49 and 50 years.
Colorectal cancer incidence and mortality are continuing to decline among adults aged 65 years and older but are increasing among younger adults.
