Conclusion: Adding a BM-TT to FIT-screening considerably reduces colonoscopy burden, but could also decrease screening effectiveness. Combining FIT15 with a high polyp sensitivity BM-TT seems most promising. PMID: 32462913 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Basavana Goudra, Preet Mohinder SinghSaudi Journal of Anaesthesia 2020 14(3):349-354 Providing sedation to patients undergoing gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy is a controversial and emotive issue. The mainstay of sedation is propofol, whose administration is within the sole jurisdiction of anesthesia providers, at least in the USA. Attempts have been made to seize the authority by the GI community. One of the first attempts was the use of the prodrug of propofol –fospropofol. However, as the drug has a similar adverse effect profile as propofol in terms of respiratory depression, the FDA did not approve its use by p...

This study aimed to determine the diagnostic performance of CT compared to lower endoscopy as an initial test for evaluating acute LGIB. The medical records of 382 patients who visited our emergency department with hematochezia between January 2012 and January 2017 were retrospectively analyzed. Of them, 112 underwent CT, 65 underwent colonoscopy, and 205 underwent sigmoidoscopy as an initial test. For each method, sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value were calculated upon active bleeding site detection and LGIB etiology diagnosis. The sensitivity, specificity, positive predic...

The peak-end bias is an established and well-described cognitive phenomenon in memory recall. On retrospective evaluation of an emotional episode, individuals tend to experience a temporal neglect, basing their assessment on the moment of maximum intensity (peak) and the moment of conclusion (end), without regard for duration.1 Following its experimental validation, knowledge of this bias has been applied in many domains to influence perceptions. In the domain of medicine, studies have indeed shown pain recall following colonoscopy and lithotripsy to conform to the peak-end bias, with the end component even being successfu...

Brenner In the past two decades, an extensive rollout of colorectal cancer (CRC) screening programmes has been initiated in European countries with a large heterogeneity of screening offers. Using data from a population-based cross-sectional survey conducted between 2013 and 2016 in all European Union countries, we analysed the utilisation of faecal tests and colonoscopy among people aged 50–74 years and the factors associated with uptake by type of screening offer. We observed the highest utilisation of either test for countries with fully rolled out organised programmes with faecal tests (ranging from 29...

CONCLUSIONS: More effective communication between patients and health care providers are warranted to avoid misconception regarding colonoscopy procedure. Support from primary care doctors, customer-friendly appointment system, use of educational aids and better involvement from family members were among the strategies to increase colonoscopy compliance.

Colonoscopy is a routine procedure in diagnosis and treatment of colonic disease. While generally regarded as a safe procedure, potentially fatal complications can occur. Gas gangrene is one such complication,...

AbstractA 75-year-old woman was diagnosed with anemia during hospitalization for the treatment of right superior ophthalmic arteriovenous fistula. Colonoscopy revealed an entire circumference of type 2 tumor in the ascending colon. Computed tomography showed ascending colon wall thickening, a tumor with a maximum diameter of 32  mm on the right external iliac artery and multiple low-density nodules in the spleen. We performed right hemicolectomy with D3 lymph node dissection, splenectomy and right external iliac lymph node dissection. Histopathological finding revealed moderately-differentiated adenocarcinoma in ascen...

Conclusion: LRD duration (1 day or 2 days) had no significant effect on bowel preparation quality. Patients in the 1-day LRD group had higher tolerance and satisfaction levels than patients in the 2-day LRD group. However, overall satisfaction was higher with the 1-day LRD group than with the 2-day LRD group.
