    BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Colonoscopy is the best available method to detect and remove colonic polyps and therefore serves as the gold standard for less invasive tests such as virtual colonoscopy. Although gastroenterologists agree that colonoscopy is not infallible, there is no clarity on the...

    Colonoscopic polypectomy is the usual treatment for an adenomatous colorectal polyp. We report a case of a sessile tubulovilious adenoma in the rectosigmoid colon disappearing during a course of radiation therapy for an unrelated cervical cancer. This case report illustrates that at least some...

    Background and aim: A 12 month, multicentre, randomised, double blind, placebo controlled, phase 3, dose-response study was carried out. Exisulind inhibits tumour growth by induction of apoptosis. The aim of our study was to investigate if exisulind induces regression of sporadic colonic...

    OBJECTIVE: Because the medical management of persons with adenomatous colorectal polyps differs from that of those with hyperplastic polyps, accuracy of diagnosis is essential. This study reports our experience using a magnifying colonoscope combined with indigocarmine dye to diagnose colorectal...

    Background and aims: Small colonic polyps are difficult to palpate and thus difficult to localize during surgery. Preoperative injection of dyes and "on-the-table colonoscopy" are some of the methods used to allow the surgeon to find the polyps. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the...

    Reports on a study which found the use of traditional optical colonoscopies missed more than 10% of polyps in patients who did not have outward signs of the disease.

    Background/Aims: A few studies showed that hood-cap assisted colonoscopy (CAC) had improved cecal intubation rate and cecal intubation time but did not help in finding colon polyps in comparison with conventional colonoscopy (CC). However, other studies have shown different results. Therefore,...
