OBJECTIVES Immunochemical fecal occult blood test (FOBT) and determination of tumor pyruvate kinase isoenzyme type M2 (TuM2-PK) in stool samples may be valuable new screening tools for colorectal cancer (CRC). The aim of this study was to compare the accuracy of fecal TuM2-PK testing with immunochemical FOBT in patients with CRC or adenomas. METHODS A(More)
BACKGROUND A noticeable proportion of colorectal cancer (CRC) patients are diagnosed with synchronous CRC. Large population-based studies on the incidence, risk factors and prognosis of synchronous CRC are, however, scarce, and are needed for better determination of risks of synchronous CRC in patients diagnosed with colonic neoplasia. METHODS All newly(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the prior exposure to colorectal examinations between colorectal cancer (CRC) patients and matched control participants to estimate the effect of these examinations on the development of CRC and to obtain insight into the background incidence of colorectal examinations. METHODS A population-based case-control study was conducted(More)
BACKGROUND Endoscopic follow-up (FU) in patients treated for colorectal adenomas or cancer (CRC) is intended to reduce the incidence of CRC. In the Dutch postpolypectomy guidelines, the FU interval is solely determined by the number of previous adenomas, whereas in other countries size and histology are also taken into account. Whether this difference in(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with colorectal cancer are at risk for developing metachronous colorectal cancer. The purpose of posttreatment surveillance is to detect and remove premalignant lesions to prevent metachronous colorectal cancer. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence of and predictive factors for metachronous colorectal cancer(More)
OBJECTIVE Surveillance of patients treated for adenoma or colorectal cancer (CRC) is intended to reduce the incidence of CRC. Responsibility for the adherence to surveillance advice is often left to the patients and family physician. It is not known whether this type of passive policy affects the efficacy of surveillance. The aim of this study was to(More)
OBJECTIVE Although colonoscopy can be effective in the prevention of colorectal cancer (CRC), it requires many endoscopic facilities, has a high patient burden and risk of complications, and it is expensive. The aim of this study was to determine the risk for proximal CRC and to identify subgroups in which screening sigmoidoscopy can be effective. (More)
