ABSTRACT
In a study, researcher M.D. Rutter and colleagues describe the higher sensitivity of pancolonic chromoendoscopy with indigo carmine dye spraying for the detection of intraepithelial neoplasias in patients with longstanding ulcerative colitis (UC). This study demonstrates improved detection of colonic lesions in UC patients using chromoendoscopy with indigo carmine. In a randomised controlled trial using magnifying chromoendoscopy in patients with longstanding UC, the researchers showed that the diagnostic yield for intraepithelial neoplasias was significantly increased by using methylene blue staining.
