CONCLUSION: Additional counseling by nurses over the telephone does not increase the participation rate. Approaching patients who have CRC is an opportunity to increase the participation of their first-degree relatives in screening colonoscopy. The frequency of neoplasia that was found in this study underscores the need to screen relatives even before they reach the usual age threshold for screening. PMID: 30518470 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Lee HH, Lee BI Abstract From dye-assisted conventional chromoendoscopy to novel virtual chromoendoscopy, image-enhanced endoscopy (IEE) is continuously evolving to meet clinical needs and improve the quality of colonoscopy. Dye-assisted chromoendoscopy using indigo carmine or crystal violet, although slightly old-fashioned, is still useful to emphasize the pit patterns of the colonic mucosa and predict the histological structures of relevant lesions. Equipment-based virtual chromoendoscopy has the advantage of being relatively easy to use. There are several types of virtual chromoendoscopy that vary depend...

AbstractColorectal cancer (CRC) is a major cause of cancer-related death of worldwide with high incidence and mortality rate, accessible to a screening program in France, first with guaiac- based fecal occult blood test (g-FOBT) then with fecal immunochemical tests (FIT), since 2015, because of better accuracy. The aim of our study was to compare the characteristics of screen-detected lesions in two successive CRC screening campaigns, using two different tests (Hemoccult II® and OC Sensor®) in the department of Maine-et-Loire, and to precise the performance of these tests [participation rate, detection rates (DR), ...

Recently, a physician asked my opinion if a patient needed a colonoscopy. My partner was already on the case and I was covering over the weekend. The facts suggested that a colonoscopy was warranted. The patient had a low blood count and had received blood transfusions. Certainly, a bleeding site in the colon, such as […]Find jobs at  Careers by KevinMD.com.  Search thousands of physician, PA, NP, and CRNA jobs now.  Learn more.

(Reuters Health) - At age 76 the risks of a repeat colonoscopy may exceed the benefits for seniors whose previous screenings have found no signs of cancer, but many older adults don't like the logic behind this guideline based on life expectancy.

ConclusionIt seems fecal calprotectin levels are related to the disease severity. Non-invasive methods, such as fecal calprotectin assay, may seem to be an alternative to aggressive, costly and time-consuming methods, such as colonoscopy and biopsy, to reduce the suffering of patients and ultimately help improve the patients’ life quality.ResumoObjetivoA colite ulcerativa geralmente afeta o reto, podendo acometer todo o cólon. Métodos não invasivos, como a dosagem de calprotectina fecal, podem ser uma abordagem confiável e barata para a avaliação da gravidade da doença...

Patients with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) who have post-inflammatory polyps (PIPs) have an increased risk of colorectal neoplasia (CRN). European guidelines propose that patients with PIPs receive more frequent surveillance colonoscopies, despite limited evidence of this increased risk. We aimed to define the risk of CRN and colectomy in patients with IBD and PIPs.
