Objective To investigate whether screening kidney transplant recipients aged over 50 years for colorectal cancer with a faecal immunochemical test for haemoglobin might be justified, by determining the prevalence of advanced colorectal neoplasia and evaluating the diagnostic accuracy of faecal haemoglobin testing compared with colonoscopy in a population of kidney transplant recipients at otherwise average risk. Design Cross sectional prevalence and diagnostic accuracy study with index test of… Expand
Importance of Pre-Transplant Colonoscopy in Renal Transplant Recipients
TLDR
The prevalence of colorectal polyps before transplant is high among renal transplant recipients and the high prevalence of proximal lesions supports the need for total colonoscopy. Expand
Colorectal Cancer after Kidney Transplantation: A Screening Colonoscopy Case-Control Study
The incidence of colorectal cancer in kidney transplant recipients has been previously reported with conflicting results. In this study, we investigated if the incidence of colorectal advancedExpand
Prevalence of Advanced Colorectal Neoplasm After Kidney Transplantation: Surveillance Based on the Results of Screening Colonoscopy
TLDR
Colonoscopy is recommended for patients before and after kidney TPL, especially for those 50 years of age or older, and Colonoscopy surveillance after TPL is warranted strictly according to the baseline risk stratification. Expand
Fecal Immunochemical Screening for Advanced Colorectal Neoplasia in Patients with CKD: Accurate or Not?
TLDR
The reported diagnostic accuracy results from DETECT are misleading because both sensitivity and negative predictive value are likely overestimated and, unfortunately, the data are insufficient to determine the accuracy of FIT. Expand
High prevalence of colon adenomas in end‐stage kidney disease patients on hemodialysis undergoing renal transplant evaluation
TLDR
A significantly higher prevalence of adenomatous polyps is demonstrated in patients with end‐stage kidney disease undergoing a first screening colonoscopy as part of kidney transplant evaluation, demonstrating that Colonoscopy can be safely performed in this population. Expand
Yield of screening colonoscopy in renal transplant candidates.
TLDR
In a population of asymptomatic potential kidney transplant recipients ≥50 years of age, the prevalence of colorectal adenomatous polyps was 24%. Expand
Post-transplant colitis after kidney transplantation: clinical, endoscopic and histological features
TLDR
Diagnostic colonoscopy should be encouraged in all transplant patients with refractory diarrhea and gastrointestinal symptoms to allow a prompt diagnosis and a timely treatment, finally improving the quality of life and long-term outcomes of affected patients. Expand

TLDR
The benefits of CRC screening in patients with functioning kidney transplants may well be equivalent to the benefit in the general population, and task forces believe that there must be strong unbiased evidence (randomized trials of screening) and that these benefits must significantly outweigh any potential harms of screening. Expand
Cancer in kidney transplant recipients
TLDR
Owing to a lack of direct evidence, general cancer screening in kidney transplant recipients is not recommended; instead, cancer screening should be tailored to patients individually, taking into account their comorbidities, individual risks of cancer, overall prognosis and preferences towards cancer screening.

TLDR
In conclusion, cancer screening for most SOTR does not adhere to standard recommendations and involvement of PCPs in posttransplant care and continuity of care at a transplant center may improve the uptake of screening. Expand

Cost-Effectiveness of Colorectal Cancer Screening in Renal Transplant Recipients
TLDR
Under the most favorable conditions, immunochemical FOBT screening in renal transplant recipients appears good value for money, and uncertainty exists in the model's influential estimates. Expand
Interval fecal immunochemical testing in a colonoscopic surveillance program speeds detection of colorectal neoplasia.
TLDR
Interval FIT analyses can be used to detect missed or rapidly developing lesions in surveillance programs, and subjects with negative results from the FIT had the lowest risk for the most advanced stage of neoplasia. Expand
Screening for colorectal cancer: randomised trial comparing guaiac-based and immunochemical faecal occult blood testing and flexible sigmoidoscopy
TLDR
FIT screening should therefore be strongly preferred over gFOBT screening, and FS screening demonstrated a higher diagnostic yield per 100 invitees than both FOBTs. Expand
A Randomised Trial of the Impact of New Faecal Haemoglobin Test Technologies on Population Participation in Screening for Colorectal Cancer
TLDR
The brush-sampling faecal immunochemical test for haemoglobin (InSure) achieves the best participation rates by simplifying sampling and removing the need for restrictions of diet and drugs. Expand

TLDR
The findings support the notion that colonoscopy is feasible and a suitable method for screening for CRC in asymptomatic people. Expand
Diagnostic accuracy of faecal occult blood tests used in screening for colorectal cancer: a systematic review
TLDR
Investigating the accuracy of guaiac and immunochemical faecal occult blood tests (FOBTs) for the detection of colorectal cancer in an average-risk screening population found Immudia HemSp appeared to be the most accurate immunochemical FOBT, however, there was no clear evidence to suggest whether Guaiac or immunochemicalFOBTs performed better, either from direct or indirect comparisons. Expand
A comparison of the immunochemical fecal occult blood test and total colonoscopy in the asymptomatic population.
TLDR
The screening of asymptomatic patients with immunochemical FOBT can identify patients with colorectal neoplasia to a certain extent, but the sensitivity is relatively low and different according to the tumor location. Expand
Colonoscopy in colorectal-cancer screening for detection of advanced neoplasia.
TLDR
A cross-sectional analysis of the data from a large colonoscopy-based screening program that included 50,148 participants detected advanced neoplasia at a significantly higher rate in men than in women, which may warrant refinement of the screening recommendations for colorectal cancer. Expand
A 30-Year Analysis of Colorectal Adenocarcinoma in Transplant Recipients and Proposal for Altered Screening
TLDR
The incidence of and 5-year survival after diagnosis of colorectal adenocarcinoma in transplant recipients is markedly different than the general population and with current screening guidelines, over 25% of at-risk patients would not be screened. Expand
Procedural success and complications of large-scale screening colonoscopy.
TLDR
Screening colonoscopy can be performed in multiple centers with a high degree of success and safety in large numbers of asymptomatic, average-risk men. Expand
