BACKGROUND: Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in males and the second in females, with an estimated 1.4 million cases and 693,900 deaths in 2012. Colonoscopy is the cornerstone for the detection and prevention of CRC. In addition, endoscopic treatment for CRC at an early stage can effectively improve patients' quality of life and cure rate. SUMMARY: This review focuses on endoscopic approaches, including white light endoscopy, chromoendoscopy, magnifying endoscopy and therapeutic endoscopy, for the evaluation and treatment of superficial colorectal neoplasms...

Colorectal sessile serrated adenomas (SSA) are hypothesized to be precursor lesions of an alternative, serrated pathway of colorectal cancer, abundant in genes with aberrant promoter DNA hypermethylation. In our present pilot study, we explored DNA methylation profiles and examined selected gene mutations in SSA. Biopsy samples from patients undergoing screening colonoscopy were obtained during endoscopic examination. After DNA isolation and quality analysis, SSAs (n = 4) and healthy controls (n = 5) were chosen for further analysis...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Recently a low-volume polyethylene glycol containing ascorbic acid (PEG-Asc) formulation has proven as safe and effective as traditional 4L PEG solutions for colonoscopy preparation. However, currently available aqueous purgative formulations are poorly tolerated. The aim of this study was to compare a split-dose 2L PEG-Asc and a 1L PEG-Asc with bisacodyl (10 mg) formulation to determine the quality of bowel cleansing and patient tolerability. METHODS: A single-center, randomized, observer-blinded study was performed between May 2015 and September 2015...

Uncommon neoplasms of the anal canal are associated with significant diagnostic dilemma in clinical practice and a high index of suspicion and pathologic expertise is needed. The incidence is likely to increase, particularly of small, incidental lesions found because of use of more frequent colonoscopy and high-definition MRI. Generally treatment follows that of the same histologic subtype in other anatomic location. Surgical intervention is the cornerstone for cure in early/localized disease; however, removal of the anal canal is associated with significant morbidities and quality of life issues...

In the latest meeting of the American Gastroenterological Association, several clinical studies were presented that aimed to evaluate the various colorectal cancer screening strategies, although most assessed the various aspects of faecal immunochemical testing (FIT) and colonoscopy. Data were presented from consecutive FIT-based screening rounds, confirming the importance of adherence to consecutive screening rounds, achieving a similar or superior diagnostic yield to endoscopic studies. There was confirmation of the importance of not delaying endoscopic study after a positive result...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Multi-target stool DNA testing (MT-sDNA) is now FDA-approved for average-risk CRC screening. Trials leading to its approval used blinded colonoscopy as the reference standard. In the post-approval screen setting, the clinical performance and impact of MT-sDNA on unblinded colonoscopy has not been described. We measured the impact that knowledge of a positive MT-sDNA test result has on colonoscopy yield and quality. METHODS: The unblinded group comprised all patients with positive MT-sDNA results on screening from 9/1/14-9/30/15 at a single tertiary center...

BACKGROUND: It is common clinical practice to follow patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) for several years following their curative surgery or adjuvant therapy, or both. Despite this widespread practice, there is considerable controversy about how often patients should be seen, what tests should be performed, and whether these varying strategies have any significant impact on patient outcomes. This is the second update of a Cochrane Review first published in 2002 and first updated in 2007...

BACKGROUND: Sessile serrated adenomas are the polyp precursor of 15-20% of colorectal carcinomas. There is debate about their prevalence and increasing discussion about the need for a serrated polyp detection rate as a quality indicator for colonoscopy. AIMS: We aimed to assess the prevalence of sessile serrated adenomas at an outpatient gastroenterology service. METHODS: This is a retrospective study of an unselected consecutive series of patients who had an outpatient colonoscopy between April 2013 and May 2014...

GOALS: To compare the adenoma detection rate (ADR) during colonoscopy in patients with melanosis coli against matched controls without melanosis. BACKGROUND: Melanosis coli is a colonoscopic finding in which the colon wall appears darkly pigmented, most often due to extended laxative use, and is considered benign. The pigmentation spares adenomas, which should therefore be more readily detectable in melanosis coli. STUDY: We identified all patients with melanosis on colonoscopy at our institution over a 5-year period...

Colonoscopy is a widely performed procedure with procedural volumes increasing annually throughout the world. Many procedures are now performed as part of colorectal cancer screening programmes. Colonoscopy should be of high quality and measures of this quality should be evidence based. New UK key performance indicators and quality assurance standards have been developed by a working group with consensus agreement on each standard reached. This paper reviews the scientific basis for each of the quality measures published in the UK standards...
