The EndoCuff is novel flexible cuff that can be attached to the distal tip of the colonoscope and helps to flatten large mucosal folds during withdrawal. The study hypothesis is that the ...
In European countries, colorectal cancer (CRC) represents an important public health problem. It is widely held view that most carcinomas develop from an adenoma-carcinoma progression. Ad...
This study investigated the impact of Endocuff-assisted colonoscopy on the adenoma detection rate at colonoscopy. This study involved patients undergoing elective screening or surveillan...
Colonoscopy is the gold standard investigation for the diagnosis of bowel pathology and colorectal cancer screening. Adenoma detection rate is a marker of high quality colonoscopy. In this...
The study aims to compare the results between colonoscopies with two different attachments on the distal end of the colonoscope.
The adenoma detection rate (ADR) is the most important marker of colonoscopy quality. Devices to improve adenoma detection have been developed, such as the Endocuff and transparent cap. The aim o...
Mucosal exposure devices improve detection of lesions during colonoscopy and have reduced examination times in uncontrolled studies. We performed a randomized trial of Endocuff Vision vs standard colo...
Telomere length has been associated with risk of several cancers. However, studies of the relationship between telomere length and colorectal cancer risk have been inconsistent. This study examined th...
Adenoma detection rate (ADR), a validated quality indicator (QI) of colonoscopy, does not take into account risk stratification of adenomas. Low-risk adenomas are not associated with a significantly i...
Adenoma detection is a highly personalized task that differs markedly between endoscopists. Technical advances are therefore desirable for the improvement of the adenoma detection rate (ADR). An autom...
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.
Tumors or cancer of the COLON or the RECTUM or both. Risk factors for colorectal cancer include chronic ULCERATIVE COLITIS; FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI; exposure to ASBESTOS; and irradiation of the CERVIX UTERI.
Tumor suppressor genes located in the 5q21 region on the long arm of human chromosome 5. The mutation of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (MCC stands for mutated in colorectal cancer).
A pituitary adenoma which secretes ADRENOCORTICOTROPIN, leading to CUSHING DISEASE.
An adenoma of the large intestine. It is usually a solitary, sessile, often large, tumor of colonic mucosa composed of mucinous epithelium covering delicate vascular projections. Hypersecretion and malignant changes occur frequently. (Stedman, 25th ed)
