The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of a mailed educational brochure on adherence to referral for screening colonoscopy. The comparison (or control) group receives no mail...
This is a pragmatic, randomized, controlled trial comparing whether a mailed outreach intervention offering patients who are not up-to-date with colorectal cancer (CRC) a choice of complet...
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.
Observing the effects of an Olympus cap on the visibility and in adenoma detection during colonoscopy.
The main study aim is to develop, implement and disseminate a pilot population-based mailed FIT outreach screening program in the Philadelphia VA Medical Center that does not rely on havin...
Mechanical obstruction of the appendiceal lumen is proposed as a possible factor in the pathogenesis of acute appendicitis. Hence, patients over the age of 40 are often referred to a follow-up colonos...
Split dose bowel preparations (SDP) have superior outcomes for colonoscopy as compared to evening before regimens. However, the association of the actual volume of the SDP to colonoscopy outcome measu...
Purpose/Aim of the study: The main purpose of the colonoscopy is screening for colorectal cancers and diagnosis of colorectal disease The cost-effectiveness of colonoscopy directly depend on the adequ...
The primary aim of this study was to evaluate adenomas per positive participant (APP) and adenomas per colonoscopy (APC) as new quality parameters in screening colonoscopy. Furthermore, we wanted to a...
National guidelines for colonoscopy screening and surveillance assume adequate bowel preparation. We used New Hampshire Colonoscopy Registry (NHCR) data to investigate the influence of bowel preparati...
Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the luminal surface of the colon.
Agents that are used to evacuate the bowels to eliminate ingested NOXAE or to prepare for COLONOSCOPY.
A condition characterized by chronic watery DIARRHEA of unknown origin, a normal COLONOSCOPY but abnormal histopathology on BIOPSY. This syndrome was first described in 1980 by Read and associates. Subtypes include COLLAGENOUS COLITIS and LYMPHOCYTIC COLITIS. Both have similar clinical symptoms and are distinguishable only by histology.
A subtype of MICROSCOPIC COLITIS, characterized by chronic watery DIARRHEA of unknown origin, a normal COLONOSCOPY but abnormal histopathology on BIOPSY. Microscopic examination of biopsy samples taken from the COLON show larger-than-normal band of subepithelial COLLAGEN.
A subtype of MICROSCOPIC COLITIS, characterized by chronic watery DIARRHEA of unknown origin, a normal COLONOSCOPY but abnormal histopathology on BIOPSY. Microscopic examination of biopsy samples taken from the COLON show infiltration of LYMPHOCYTES in the superficial EPITHELIUM and the underlying connective tissue (lamina propria).
