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… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Protection From Colorectal Cancer After Colonoscopy
TLDR
Colonoscopy with polypectomy can be associated with strongly reduced risk for CRC in the population setting, and strong risk reduction was observed for all cancer stages and all ages, except for right-sided cancer in persons aged 50 to 59 years.
Strong Reduction of Colorectal Cancer Incidence and Mortality After Screening Colonoscopy: Prospective Cohort Study From Germany.
TLDR
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
TLDR
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.
Performance of additional colonoscopies and yield of neoplasms within 3 years after screening colonoscopy: a historical cohort study.
TLDR
The results indicate frequent utilization of additional colonoscopies along with substantial adenoma yield in the first 3 years after screening colonoscopy.
Risk of colorectal cancer after detection and removal of adenomas at colonoscopy: population-based case-control study.
TLDR
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.
Reduced risk of colorectal cancer up to 10 years after screening, surveillance, or diagnostic colonoscopy.
TLDR
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.
Colonoscopy and polypectomy: beside age, size of polyps main factor for long-term risk of colorectal cancer in a screening population
TLDR
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?
TLDR
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.
Long-term colorectal-cancer incidence and mortality after lower endoscopy.
TLDR
Colorectal cancer diagnosed within 5 years after colonoscopy was more likely than cancer diagnosed after that period or without prior endoscopy to have CIMP and microsatellite instability and colonoscopic was also associated with a modest reduction in the incidence of proximal colon cancer.
Re: Protection from right- and left-sided colorectal neoplasms after colonoscopy: population-based study.
The recent article by Brenner et al. (1) identified some of the limitations of colonoscopy within the proximal colon. These results are consistent with previous cancer-specific interval studies (2).

Potential for Colorectal Cancer Prevention of Sigmoidoscopy Versus Colonoscopy: Population-Based Case Control Study
TLDR
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.
Prevention of colorectal cancer by colonoscopic polypectomy. The National Polyp Study Workgroup.
TLDR
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.
TLDR
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.
TLDR
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.
TLDR
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.
TLDR
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.
Does a negative screening colonoscopy ever need to be repeated?
TLDR
Subjects with negative findings at Colonoscopy are at very low risk of colorectal cancer and might not need to undergo repeat colonoscopy for 20 years or more, if at all.

TLDR
Evidence from several polyp prevention trials demonstrates higher yields for subsequent cancer than would be expected, despite a relatively high use of surveillance procedures in follow-up, although population-based research on the frequency of use and yield of surveillance examinations is needed.
