Early detection and removal of adenomatous polyps can prevent the development of colorectal cancer. However, it is fairly common-up to 20%-for polyps to be undetected in a colonoscopy due to poor visualization of the proximal aspect of colonic folds and anatomical flexures. To overcome these limitations, many new endoscopes and accessories have been developed. A wide-angle colonoscopy did not improve the detection of adenoma compared with the standard colonoscopy. An extra-wide angle and Retroview colonoscopies showed a significantly lower miss rate of polyps in the colon model...

AIM: To perform meta-analysis of the use of Endocuff during average risk screening colonoscopy. METHODS: Scopus, Cochrane databases, MEDLINE/PubMed, and CINAHL were searched in April 2016. Abstracts from Digestive Disease Week, United European Gastroenterology, and the American College of Gastroenterology meeting were also searched from 2004-2015. Studies comparing EC-assisted colonoscopy (EAC) to standard colonoscopy, for any indication, were included in the analysis...

Endocuff (Arc Medical Design) is a U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved device that is attached like a cap to the distal tip of the colonoscope; it is used to improve adenoma detection rates during colonoscopy. The aim of this review was to summarize and evaluate the clinical and technical efficacy of Endocuff in improving adenoma detection rate. A comprehensive literature review was performed to identify studies describing this technique. In this review article, we have summarized case series and reports describing Endocuff use and results...

BACKGROUND: Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a common cause of cancer-related deaths. Early detection of precursor lesions in the adenoma-carcinoma sequence via colonoscopy can decrease mortality from CRC. SUMMARY: In this review article, we have summarized retrospective studies, prospective single center, multicenter studies and randomized controlled trials describing the efficacy of endocuff colonoscopy (EC), cap-assisted colonoscopy (CAC) and endorings colonoscopy (ERC)...

BACKGROUND: The presence of colorectal adenomas is considered a major risk factor for colorectal cancer development. The implementation of screening colonoscopy programs in the Western world has led to a substantial reduction of colorectal cancer death. Many efforts have been made to reduce the adenoma miss rates by the application of new endoscopic devices and techniques for better adenoma visualization. SUMMARY: This special review gives the readership an overview of current endoscopic innovations that can aid in the increase of the adenoma detection rate (ADR) during colonoscopy...

BACKGROUND: Colonoscopy is the gold standard investigation for the diagnosis of bowel pathology and colorectal cancer screening. Adenoma detection rate is a marker of high quality colonoscopy and a high adenoma detection rate is associated with a lower incidence of interval cancers. Several technological advancements have been explored to improve adenoma detection rate. A new device called Endocuff Vision™ has been shown to improve adenoma detection rate in pilot studies. METHODS/DESIGN: This is a prospective, multicenter, randomized controlled trial comparing the adenoma detection rate in patients undergoing Endocuff Vision™-assisted colonoscopy with standard colonoscopy...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Colonoscopy is the current reference standard for the detection of colorectal neoplasia, but nevertheless adenomas remain undetected. The Endocuff, an endoscopic cap with plastic projections, may improve colonic visualisation and adenoma detection. The aim of this study was to compare the mean number of adenomas per patient (MAP) and the adenoma detection rate (ADR) between Endocuff-assisted colonoscopy (EAC) and conventional colonoscopy (CC). METHODS: We performed a multicentre, randomised controlled trial in five hospitals and included fecal immonochemical test (FIT)-positive screening participants as well as symptomatic patients (>45 years)...

BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS: The adenoma detection rate (ADR) is one of the quality measures in screening colonoscopy and is crucial for reducing colorectal cancer morbidity and mortality. Up to 25 % of adenomas are missed during colonoscopy. Endocuff is an easy-to-use device that is attached like a cap to the distal tip of the colonoscope in order to optimize visualization behind the folds of the colon and increase the ADR. This is the first prospective study of Endocuff-assisted colonoscopy (EC) in a screening population with follow-up to determine the ADR and adverse events of EC...

BACKGROUND: The undetected colonic lesions behind the folds and flexures are a major factor contributing to the adenoma miss rate. OBJECTIVE: To assess the efficacy of Endocuff, a special attachment was fixed at the distal tip of a colonoscope, for the polyp detection. This soft accessory is composed of a plastic cap surrounded by flexible finger-like projections on the lateral sides of the cap that make holding of the folds during scope withdrawal easier. DESIGN: This was a simulated pilot study with one anatomic colorectal model, containing 13 polyps positioned in obvious locations and behind the folds...

OBJECTIVES: The Endocuff is a device mounted on the tip of the colonoscope to help flatten the colonic folds during withdrawal. This study aimed to compare the adenoma detection rates between Endocuff-assisted (EC) colonoscopy and standard colonoscopy (SC). METHODS: This randomized prospective multicenter trial was conducted at four academic endoscopy units in Germany. PARTICIPANTS: 500 patients (235 males, median age 64[IQR 54-73]) for colon adenoma detection purposes were included in the study...

GOALS AND BACKGROUND: Screening colonoscopy for colorectal cancer has proven to reduce mortality rates. Recently the Endocuff (EC), an attachment to the distal tip of the colonoscope, was introduced. The aim of our study was to compare EC-assisted colonoscopies with standard colonoscopies for the detection of colonic polyps. STUDY: This study is a randomized prospective 2-center trial. The study was conducted at 2 tertiary care centers. PARTICIPANTS: A total of 498 patients [249 males; median age 67 y; interquartile range (IQR), 56-75 y] for colon adenoma screening purposes were included...

PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 50 Endocuff-assisted colonoscopies were analyzed retrospectively with regard to safety, procedural success, and complications. RESULTS: The cecal intubation rate was 98 %, and the mean intubation time was 6.0 minutes (95 % confidence interval 5...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the incidence, distribution, and indications of secondary procedures after endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EAR). METHODS: At a single institution, 179 patients underwent EAR with four different endografts (AneuRx, n = 117; Zenith, n = 49; Ancure, n = 12; and Talent, n = 1). The vascular section database was queried for patients who needed secondary procedures after the original EAR. The mean time from EAR to the termination of the study was 27...
