We review our approach to resection of colorectal polyps
Adverse systemic effect caused by betel nut had been reported for decades. Our aim was to determine whether betel nut had detrimental impact on the development of colorectal polyps in general populati...
Guidelines recommend genetic testing of patients with 10 or more cumulative adenomatous polyps. However, little is known about the utility of these tests-especially for older patients. We aimed to det...
Removal of neoplastic polyps is important for colorectal cancer prevention. The primary aim was to compare the complete resection rate of diminutive (≤5 mm) or small colorectal polyps (6-10 mm) usin...
Approximately 0.6% to 4% of cholecystectomies are performed because of gallbladder polyps. The decision to perform cholecystectomy is based on presence of gallbladder polyp(s) on transabdominal ultras...
Accurate optical diagnosis of colorectal polyps could allow a "resect and discard" strategy with surveillance intervals determined based on the results of the optical biopsy. The investig...
Colorectal cancer remains the third most common cause of death from cancer worldwide. Colonoscopy allows removal of adenomatous polyps is the best colorectal cancer screening, according to...
This prospective randomized clinical trial aims to evaluate the new Optivista system compared to the iScan for his optical diagnosis and interval agreement monitoring with pathology. The P...
Colorectal cancer is a maior cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide.Colonoscopy and removal of all adenomas is the most efficient method to prevent colorectal cancer.The most colorecta...
Adenomas are polyps of the colorectum that have the potential to develop into colon cancer. However, some adenomas never become malignant tumors, or if so, progression from adenoma into ca...
A group of autosomal-dominant inherited diseases in which COLON CANCER arises in discrete adenomas. Unlike FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI with hundreds of polyps, hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal neoplasms occur much later, in the fourth and fifth decades. HNPCC has been associated with germline mutations in mismatch repair (MMR) genes. It has been subdivided into Lynch syndrome I or site-specific colonic cancer, and LYNCH SYNDROME II which includes extracolonic cancer.
A polyposis syndrome due to an autosomal dominant mutation of the APC genes (GENES, APC) on CHROMOSOME 5. The syndrome is characterized by the development of hundreds of ADENOMATOUS POLYPS in the COLON and RECTUM of affected individuals by early adulthood. The lifetime risk of colorectal cancer in these patients reaches 100 percent by age 60.
Clusters of colonic crypts that appear different from the surrounding mucosa when visualized after staining. They are of interest as putative precursors to colorectal adenomas and potential biomarkers for colorectal carcinoma.
Discrete tissue masses that protrude into the lumen of the COLON. These POLYPS are connected to the wall of the colon either by a stalk, pedunculus, or by a broad base.
Focal accumulations of EDEMA fluid in the NASAL MUCOSA accompanied by HYPERPLASIA of the associated submucosal connective tissue. Polyps may be NEOPLASMS, foci of INFLAMMATION, degenerative lesions, or malformations.
