ABSTRACT
This article examined the safety and efficacy of high magnification chromoscopic colonoscopy for the diagnosis of neoplasia in flat and depressed lesions of the colorectum. However, fundamental differences still exist between Japanese and Western histopathologists that make comparative studies between East and West difficult. This "collection" of data reflects current histopathological practice in Great Britain where invasion rates are not routinely specified. Differentiation of hyperplastic from low grade dysplasia adenoma therefore still remains an important asset to the endoscopists, as the number of inappropriate biopsies and resections can be safely limited while allowing for appropriate risk stratification permitting suitable colonoscopic follow up intervals.

    Background: An endoscopists adenoma detection rate (ADR) of less than 20 % correlates with high risk for occurrence of interval cancer. The impact of high-definition (HD) imaging on the ADR is discussed controversially. We aimed to investigate whether detection rates of individual endoscopists...

    OBJECTIVES: Colonoscopy cannot be completed in up to 10% of cases. We postulate that cap-assisted colonoscopy (CAC), by fitting a mucosectomy cap to the tip of a colonoscope, could improve the outcome. METHODS: We conducted a prospective randomized controlled trial in two regional endoscopy...

    Background: Simple card collection systems are becoming available for faecal immunochemical tests (FITs) as well as guaiac faecal occult blood tests (gFOBTs). FITs are now obtainable that allow quantitation of haemoglobin, so that the analytical detection limit can be set to give a positivity...

    AIM: To investigate the value of retroflexion in detecting neoplasia in the distal rectum. METHODS: This was a prospective observational study performed in an academic endoscopy unit. Consecutive patients undergoing colonoscopy had careful forward viewing of the distal rectum by retroflexion. Of...

    Hyperplastic polyps are not thought to carry a malignant potential. They are, therefore, not regularly screened by the majority of clinicians. We present two case reports of serrated adenomas that add to a small but expanding body of clinical and histological evidence that suggests 3...

    Background: Distal adenomas have been considered markers of proximal neoplasms. It also has been suggested that patients with small, distal adenomas do not require proximal examination of the colon. This study was conducted to determine the validity of the latter recommendation. Methods: From a...

    Aberrant crypt foci (ACF) may represent pre-neoplastic lesions in the human colon. The prevalence of ACF detected using magnification chromoscopic colonoscopy is known to follow a stepwise progression from normal subjects to those with exophytic adenomas and colon cancer (CC). No studies have...
