Screening Colonoscopy in Patients Evaluated for Liver Transplant: Look before You Leap.

Summary of "Screening Colonoscopy in Patients Evaluated for Liver Transplant: Look before You Leap."

We read with interest the paper by Oey and colleagues. While the argument for caution regarding the safety of colonoscopy in patients evaluated for liver transplant(LT) has merit, the low yield of colorectal cancer (CRC) in their study is not surprising considering that majority of patients were average risk. However, low yield of CRC is a soft argument against screening colonoscopy in pre-LT patients because evidence suggests that the risk of advanced adenoma (AA) and CRC significantly increases post-LT.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The identification of selected parameters in newborn infants by various tests, examinations, or other procedures. Screening may be performed by clinical or laboratory measures. A screening test is designed to sort out healthy neonates (INFANT, NEWBORN) from those not well, but the screening test is not intended as a diagnostic device, rather instead as epidemiologic.

A derivative of sirolimus and an inhibitor of TOR SERINE-THREONINE KINASES. It is used to prevent GRAFT REJECTION in heart and kidney transplant patients by blocking cell proliferation signals. It is also an ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT.

Examination of urine by chemical, physical, or microscopic means. Routine urinalysis usually includes performing chemical screening tests, determining specific gravity, observing any unusual color or odor, screening for bacteriuria, and examining the sediment microscopically.

Testing or screening required by federal, state, or local law or other agencies for the diagnosis of specified conditions. It is usually limited to specific populations such as categories of health care providers, members of the military, and prisoners or to specific situations such as premarital examinations or donor screening.

Immunologic tests for identification of HIV (HTLV-III/LAV) antibodies. They include assays for HIV SEROPOSITIVITY and HIV SERONEGATIVITY; (ELISA, immunofluorescence, immunoblot, etc.) that have been developed for screening persons carrying the viral antibody from patients with overt symptoms of AIDS or AIDS-RELATED COMPLEX.
