Endoscopy Nurse Participation in Adenoma Detection Rate During Colonoscopy
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second most common cancer and the fourth leading cause of cancer death in Korea. Colonoscopy with polypectomy decreases the incidence and mortality from colorectal cancer. However, significant lesions can be missed during colonoscopy. Recent retrospective studies have shown that fellow involvement as a second observer may increase adenoma detection rate in colonoscopy.
The aim of this prospective, multicenter, randomized study is to evaluate the impact when endoscopy nurse participate in adenoma detection during screening colonoscopy. The primary outcome measure is the adenoma detection rate (ADR).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Standard Of Care
The minimum acceptable patient care, based on statutes, court decisions, policies, or professional guidelines.
Progressive Patient Care
Organization of medical and nursing care according to the degree of illness and care requirements in the hospital. The elements are intensive care, intermediate care, self-care, long-term care, and organized home care.
Medical care provided after the regular practice schedule of the physicians. Usually it is designed to deliver 24-hour-a-day and 365-day-a-year patient care coverage for emergencies, triage, pediatric care, or hospice care.
Episode Of Care
An interval of care by a health care facility or provider for a specific medical problem or condition. It may be continuous or it may consist of a series of intervals marked by one or more brief separations from care, and can also identify the sequence of care (e.g., emergency, inpatient, outpatient), thus serving as one measure of health care provided.
Prudent standard preventive measures to be taken by professional and other health personnel in contact with persons afflicted with a communicable disease, to avoid contracting the disease by contagion or infection. Precautions are especially applicable in the diagnosis and care of AIDS patients.
The aim of this study is to compare the colonoscopy success rate, cecal time and polyp detection rate between cap-fitted colonoscopy and conventional colonoscopy.
The investigators hypothesize that NBI will have a high accuracy in predicting polyp histology real time during a colonoscopy by visualization of the surface mucosal and vascular patterns....
Patients with a prior incomplete colonoscopy will be enrolled in this study. Patients will be randomized to either an initial repeat attempt with a standard colonoscope or the single ballo...
RATIONALE: Receiving a reminder letter from their doctor may increase the frequency of colonoscopy in patients who have had a colorectal polyp removed. PURPOSE: This randomized clinical t...
Colonoscopy is the accepted gold standard for screening of colorectal cancer. However, small and flat neoplastic lesions might be overlooked with standard video endoscopes. The new availab...
Due to the increasing demand for colonoscopy, devices to advance examination techniques are highly sought after. Several studies have examined the use of a transparent cap attached to the tip of the c...
Abstract Objective. Colorectal polyps can be missed even during a meticulous colonoscopy by an experienced colonoscopist. The aim of this study was to investigate patient-, procedure-, and polyp-relat...
BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Caecal intubation fails up to 20% of colonoscopy in clinical practice. We aimed to assess whether (1) in patients with a prior incomplete colonoscopy with a standard adult colonos...
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIM: Currently colonoscopy quality indicators emphasize our ability to improve polyp detection (e.g., preparation quality, withdrawal times of ≥6 min). The completeness of a po...
OBJECTIVES:Early repeat colonoscopy after an index examination may be justifiable, but may also reflect quality issues during the first examination. The aims of this study were to examine the use of s...
