Endoscopy Nurse Participation in Adenoma Detection Rate During Colonoscopy

2014-08-27 03:13:40 | BioPortfolio


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).

EndoCuff-assisted Versus Standard Colonoscopy for Adenoma Detection

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 ...

Endorings™ Assisted Colonoscopy Versus Standard Colonoscopy for Polyp Detection

This study evaluates the impact of Endorings™ assisted colonoscopy on the number of polyps detected per patient compared to standard colonoscopy without use of EndoRings™. Half of the ...

Deep-Learning for Automatic Polyp Detection During Colonoscopy

The primary objective of this study is to examine the role of machine learning and computer aided diagnostics in automatic polyp detection and to determine whether a combination of colonos...

Prospective Trial to Compare ADR of G-EYE™ Colonoscopy With Standard Colonoscopy

The purpose of this study is to compare the adenoma detection rate (ADR) of the G-EYE™ colonoscopy with that of standard colonoscopy.

Evaluation of the Use of Cap in Improving the Performance of Colonoscopy

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.

Caution with iceberg model for colonoscopy in mind! A large easily missed sessile serrated polyp surrounding seemingly diminutive protruded polyp: a case report.

Recent benefit of colonoscopy on CRC incidence and mortality was challenged by interval CRC, consisted of up to 5% of CRCs detected by colonoscopy in the preceding 5 years (1, 2). SSA/P has been recog...

G-EYE advanced colonoscopy for improved polyp detection rates - a randomized tandem pilot study with different endoscopists.

 The most commonly missed polyps in colonoscopy are those located behind haustral folds. The G-EYE system is a standard colonoscope consisting of re-processable balloon at its distal tip. The G-E...

New-generation full-spectrum endoscopy versus standard forward-viewing colonoscopy: a multicenter, randomized, tandem colonoscopy trial (J-FUSE Study).

Although colonoscopy is the criterion standard for detection of colorectal adenomas, some adenomas are missed. Full-spectrum endoscopy (FUSE) allows for observation with a 330° angle of view, which i...

Gaze patterns hold key to unlocking successful search strategies and increasing polyp detection rate in colonoscopy.

 The adenoma detection rate (ADR) is an important quality indicator in colonoscopy. The aim of this study was to evaluate the changes in visual gaze patterns (VGPs) with increasing polyp detection r...

Comparison of Small Versus Large Volume Split Dose Preparation for Colonoscopy: A Study of Colonoscopy Outcomes.

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The minimum acceptable patient care, based on statutes, court decisions, policies, or professional guidelines.

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.

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.

Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the luminal surface of the colon.
