BACKGROUND Colonoscopy is used for early detection and prevention of colorectal cancer, but evidence on the magnitude of overall protection and protection according to anatomical site through colonoscopy performed in the community setting is sparse. We assessed whether receiving a colonoscopy in the preceding 10-year period, compared with no colonoscopy, was associated with prevalence of advanced colorectal neoplasms (defined as cancers or advanced adenomas) at various anatomical sites…

Strong Reduction of Colorectal Cancer Incidence and Mortality After Screening Colonoscopy: Prospective Cohort Study From Germany.

In this large prospective cohort study from Germany, screening colonoscopy was associated with strong reduction in CRC incidence and mortality.

Strong reduction of distal colorectal cancer incidence and mortality but no reduction of proximal colon cancer after screening colonoscopy: prospective cohort study

This population-based, prospective statewide cohort study from Saarland/Germany with repeat updates of exposure information demonstrates major reduction of total and distal CRC incidence and mortality among people who underwent screening colonoscopy, but no reduction of incidence andortality from cancer in the proximal colon was observed.

The reduction in colorectal cancer mortality after colonoscopy varies by site of the cancer.

In Manitoba, colonoscopies significantly reduce mortality from CRC, but the benefit is not uniform for colorectal tumors that arise in different areas of the colon.

Risk of colorectal cancer after detection and removal of adenomas at colonoscopy: population-based case-control study.

Strong, significant risk reduction within 5 years was consistently seen for women and men, younger and older participants, patients with and without high-risk polyps, and those with andwithout polypectomy in the right colon.

Performance of additional colonoscopies and yield of neoplasms within 3 years after screening colonoscopy: a historical cohort study

The results indicate frequent utilization of additional colonoscopies along with substantial adenoma yield in the first 3 years after screening colonoscopy.

Reduced risk of colorectal cancer up to 10 years after screening, surveillance, or diagnostic colonoscopy.

In a population-based case-control study, the risk of CRC was strongly reduced up to 10 years after Colonoscopy for any indication, and was particularly low after screening colonoscopy, even for cancer in the right colon.

Colorectal cancers soon after colonoscopy: a pooled multicohort analysis

These cancers primarily seem to represent lesions that were missed or incompletely removed at the prior colonoscopy and might be avoided by increased emphasis on identifying and completely removing all neoplastic lesions at Colonoscopy.

Morphological Characteristics and Location of Missed, Advanced Colorectal Neoplasms after Colonoscopy.

Findings suggest that extra attention should be paid to non-polypoid, right-sided advanced colorectal neoplasms during screening and surveillance colonoscopy.

Colonoscopy and polypectomy: beside age, size of polyps main factor for long-term risk of colorectal cancer in a screening population

The results underline the significance of a full colonoscopy screening combined with polypectomy in reducing the total disease burden of colorectal cancer.

Colorectal cancer following negative colonoscopy: is 5-year screening the correct interval to recommend?

Although staging was similar between the two groups, Group 1 tumors were less aggressive despite having appeared within 5 years, and a shorter period for routine colonoscopy may be considered as a result of the incidence of colorectal cancer within a 5-year interval.



Potential for Colorectal Cancer Prevention of Sigmoidoscopy Versus Colonoscopy: Population-Based Case Control Study

It is concluded that colonoscopy provides strong protection against colorectal cancer among both women and men and among men, this regimen may be almost as effective as Colonoscopy, at least at previous performance levels of colonoscope.

Risk of developing colorectal cancer following a negative colonoscopy examination: evidence for a 10-year interval between colonoscopies.

The risk of developing colorectal cancer remains decreased for more than 10 years following the performance of a negative colonoscopy, and there is a need to improve the early detection rate of right-sided coloreCTal neoplasia in usual clinical practice.

Prevention of colorectal cancer by colonoscopic polypectomy. The National Polyp Study Workgroup.

The results of the National Polyp Study support the view that colorectal adenomas progress to adenocarcinomas, as well as the current practice of searching for and removing adenomatous polyps to prevent coloreCTal cancer.

Colonoscopic miss rates for right-sided colon cancer: a population-based analysis.

Among persons undergoing resection for right-sided colon cancer, the miss rate of colonoscopy for detecting cancer in usual clinical practice was 4.0%.

Invasive colorectal cancer detected up to 3 years after a colonoscopy negative for cancer.

Colonoscopists should receive adequate training in achieving easy cecal intubation, detecting small or flat lesions, and carrying out adequate biopsies.

Rates of new or missed colorectal cancers after colonoscopy and their risk factors: a population-based analysis.

Patients with a new diagnosis of right-sided, transverse, splenic flexure/descending, rectal or sigmoid CRC in Ontario from April 1, 1997 to March 31, 2002 who had a colonoscopy within the 3 years before their diagnosis are advised to inform patients of the small risk of these cancers after Colonoscopy.

Colorectal cancer in patients under close colonoscopic surveillance.

CRC is diagnosed in a clinically important proportion of patients following complete colonoscopy and polypectomy and risk factors for CRC and adenoma with high-grade dysplasia are examined.

Prevention of Colorectal Cancer by Flexible Endoscopy and Polypectomy: A Case-Control Study of 32 702 Veterans

The study compared the frequency with which flexible endoscopies were done during the period preceding the first diagnosis of cancer among patients with colorectal cancer and among controls without cancer to show that these procedures actually do reduce the risk for cancer in the large intestine.

Colorectal cancers found after a complete colonoscopy.
