The faecal transplant was administered by whole colonoscopy into the caecum (30 g of stool in 150 ml sterile saline). Two weeks before the FMT (baseline) as well as two and eight weeks after the FMT, the participants underwent a sigmoidoscopy, and biopsies...

AbstractBackgroundColorectal cancer is the fourth most commonly diagnosed cancer in the United States. Approximately 3 –10% of the population has an increased risk for colorectal cancer due to family history and warrants more frequent or intensive screening. Yet,

CONCLUSIONS:  The survey provides important practical insights into outpatient sigmoidoscopy. A majority of the physicians does not support evidence-based sigmoidoscopy for CRC screening. However, individuals who reject a colonoscopy are, in line with the current guideline, identified as a target group for a screening sigmoidoscopy. The benefit from an additionally offered sigmoidoscopy in CRC screening should be further analyzed with special consideration given to the preferences of insurees within the German healthcare system.

Abstract Colonoscopic polypectomy is fundamental to effective prevention of colorectal cancer. Polypectomy reduces colorectal cancer incidence and mortality by altering the natural history and progression of precancerous precursor polyps. Epidemiologic data from the United States, where colorectal cancer rates have been steadily declining in parallel with screening efforts, provide indisputable evidence about the effectiveness of polypectomy. Randomized controlled trials of fecal occult blood tests and flexible sigmoidoscopy, and observational colonoscopy studies, provide additional support. Longitudinal studies h...

ConclusionsThe prevalence rates for neoplasms, advanced neoplasms, and CRC in our current study were statistically significantly higher compared with those seen in average-risk populations. This supports the importance of more intensive screening for this subpopulation in preventing colorectal cancers, as well as pre-and early-cancerous neoplasms.

ConclusionsBased on the characteristics of the five cases and a review of the literature, we suggest a practical approach for undertaking closure of colonic perforations occurring during colonoscopy in the outpatient setting, focusing on clinical criteria to determine eligibility of patients for attempted endoscopic closure and outlining required therapeutic and monitoring steps needed to optimize outcomes.
