    The article offers information on serrated lesions in colorectal cancer screening. Topics discussed include interruption of the adenoma-carcinoma sequence by endoscopic polypectomy in preventing the development of colorectal cancer, use of colonoscopy for detecting adenoma, and clinical aspects...

    Background: Whereas high recurrence rates of colorectal adenomas after polypectomy are widely recognised, little is known of the natural incidence in those with no neoplastic lesions initially. It is also known that single colonoscopy has a significant miss rate. Aims: To elucidate the incidence...

    Aim: Hyperplastic polyps (HP) of the colorectum have traditionally been regarded as non-neoplastic lesions. Recent data implicate HP in the pathogenesis of colorectal cancers (CRC) characterised by extensive DNA methylation and microsatellite instability. The aim of this study was to identify...

    Objectives: To assess the diagnostic yield of the 1-yr follow-up flexible sigmoidoscopy examination for the detection of colonic neoplasia in a colorectal cancer screening program. Methods: Data were prospectively collected for flexible sigmoidoscopies performed between July 1991 and July 1992...
