Proteins that share the common characteristic of binding to carbohydrates. Some ANTIBODIES and carbohydrate-metabolizing proteins (ENZYMES) also bind to carbohydrates, however they are not considered lectins. PLANT LECTINS are carbohydrate-binding proteins that have been primarily identified by their hemagglutinating activity (HEMAGGLUTININS). However, a variety of lectins occur in animal species where they serve diverse array of functions through specific carbohydrate recognition.

Human colon adenocarcinomas express a MUC1-associated novel carbohydrate epitope on core mucin glycans defined by a monoclonal antibody (A10) raised against murine Ehrlich tumor cells. (1/764)

A monoclonal antibody (mAb; A10) raised against murine Ehrlich tumor cell surface carbohydrates was tested for reactivity with human normal and malignant tissues. A10 reacted strongly, with a high proportion of adenocarcinomas arising from colon and other tissues but not with breast carcinomas or other malignant tumors. Normal tissues were virtually A10 unreactive, except for the duct cells from breast and pancreas and some bronchial mucosae. Ultrastructural studies showed mAb A10 immunolabeling of both microvilli and mucin droplets in colon cancer cells but not in normal absorptive or globet cells. A10 reacted strongly with mucin-enriched fractions from colon cancer tissues and HT-29 xenografts but not from normal colon tissues. A10 epitope was carried on MUC1 derived from colon adenocarcinomas and probably on other mucin species, although not on MUC2 molecules. A10 epitope was resistant to exoglycosidases and periodate oxidation but sensitive to the Smith's degradation and beta-elimination, suggesting the involvement of O-linked carbohydrates in nonterminal reducing positions. A mucin-type glycosidic linkage was supported because of the lack of A10 reactivity with HT-29 cells grown with phenyl-N-acetyl-alpha-D-galactosaminide. Deglycosylation studies with trifluoromethanesulfonic acid pointed to the involvement of core mucin glycans in the A10 epitope. This epitope was resistant to protease, O- and N-glycanase treatments carried out on trifluoromethanesulfonic acid-deglycosylated mucins. Inhibition studies with core 1, core 2, core 3, and core 6 suggested the latter [GlcNAcbeta(1-6)GalNAc] as being involved in A10 epitope. Taken together, the present results point to A10 defining a core 6-related epitope on core mucin glycans expressed by colon cancer MUC1 not previously associated with human cancer.  (+info)

Dietary determinants of colorectal proliferation in the normal mucosa of subjects with previous colon adenomas. (2/764)

Dietary determinants of colorectal mucosa proliferation were studied in 69 subjects previously operated for at least two sporadic colon adenomas. Information on recent dietary habits was collected by a validated food frequency questionnaire, and proliferation was measured by [3H]thymidine incorporation in colorectal biopsies by determining the labeling index (LI) and the percentage of LI in the upper part of the crypt, two parameters that are increased in subjects at high risk of colon cancer. The LI was significantly higher in women as compared with men (P = 0.01). Diet showed several associations with colorectal mucosa proliferation: (a) subjects in the highest tertile of fish consumption had a significantly lower LI (P = 0.0013) compared with those in the lower tertiles [5.20 +/- 1.87 versus 6.80 +/- 2.18 (mean +/- SD)]; (b) subjects with a low red meat consumption had lower proliferation in the upper part of the crypt [2.38 +/- 2.10, 5.30 +/- 4.62, and 5.89 +/- 4.82 in the low, middle, and high tertile of consumption, respectively (mean +/- SD); P = 0.0093]; (c) according to estimated nutrient intakes, the LI was lower in subjects reporting a high intake of starch (P = 0.006) and higher in subjects with a low intake of beta-carotene (P = 0.002). The results show that subjects reporting a diet rich in fish, starch, and beta-carotene and low in red meat had lower colorectal mucosa proliferation and a normal pattern of proliferation along the crypt. Given the correlation between colorectal proliferative activity and colon cancer risk, such a dietary pattern might be beneficial for subjects at high risk of colon cancer.  (+info)

Differential expression of a new tumor-associated antigen, TLP, during human colorectal cancer tumorigenesis. (3/764)

Tumour liberated particles (TLP) have been proposed as a potential new serum tumor marker. In particular, a high percentage of patients with early stages of lung cancer scored positive for serum TLP, suggesting its possible role as a marker for early diagnosis of disease. The aim of the present study was to analyze the expression of TLP in the colorectal adenoma-carcinoma sequence in order to determine whether its expression correlates with the various stages of cancer transformation. TLP distribution was assessed by immunohistochemistry in normal, premalignant, and malignant colorectal lesions. Normal colonic mucosa and hyperplastic polyps showed no positive staining, whereas adenomas and adenocarcinomas reacted to anti-TLP serum. The percentage of positive tumor cells increased from adenomas with mild dysplasia to adenomas with severe dysplasia. Moreover, a supranuclear staining pattern was observed mainly in adenomas with mild dysplasia, whereas adenomas with severe dysplasia as well as adenocarcinomas showed a characteristic diffuse staining pattern and a strong staining intensity. Only a few cases of adenocarcinoma were found to be TLP-negative and all were poorly differentiated. Our results suggest that TLP antigen expression may be considered as a marker of epithelial atypia in the colorectal tract and as a potential target for new diagnostic and/or therapeutic approaches to human colorectal cancer.  (+info)

A bile acid-induced apoptosis assay for colon cancer risk and associated quality control studies. (4/764)

Bile acids are important in the etiology of colorectal cancer. Bile acids induce apoptosis in colonic goblet cells at concentrations comparable to those found in fecal water after high-fat meals. Preliminary evidence indicated that cells of the normal-appearing (nontumorous) portion of the colon epithelium of colon cancer patients are more resistant to bile salt-induced apoptosis than are cells from normal individuals. In the present study, 68 patients were examined, and biopsies were taken at 20 cm from the anal verge, cecum, and descending colon. The patients included 17 individuals with a history of colorectal cancer, 37 individuals with adenomas, and 14 individuals who were neoplasia free. The mean bile salt-induced apoptotic index among normal individuals was 57.6 +/- 3.47 (SE), which differed significantly (P < 0.05) from the mean value of 36.41 +/- 3.12 in individuals with a history of colon cancer. The correlation between independent observers was 0.89 (P < 0.001), indicating good interobserver reliability. Components of variance comparing interindividual versus intraindividual sources of variation suggested that site-to-site variability, both between regions of the colon and for adjacent biopsies, was larger than the interpatient variability for individuals with a history of neoplasia. Therefore, there was "patchiness" of the susceptibility of regions of the colon to bile acid-induced apoptosis in individuals with a history of neoplasia (a patchy field effect). There was no obvious correlation of low-apoptotic index regions with regions in which previous neoplasias had been found and removed. On the other hand, for normal, i.e., neoplasia-free, individuals, there was relatively less intraindividual variation compared to interindividual variation. Our assay shows an association between resistance to bile acid-induced apoptosis, measured at 20 cm from the anal verge, and colon cancer risk. Thus, this assay may prove useful as a biomarker of colon cancer risk.  (+info)

Frequent mutation of beta-catenin and APC genes in primary colorectal tumors from patients with hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer. (5/764)

Hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC) is characterized by defective DNA mismatch repair, which results in genetic instability of tumors; however, only a few target genes have been recognized. Our previous study detected a low frequency of APC gene mutation (21%) in colorectal tumors from HNPCC patients, in contrast to a high frequency of APC gene alteration (>70%) in non-HNPCC tumors. Because both beta-catenin and ACP gene mutations have recently been shown to activate the same signaling pathway, we analyzed beta-catenin mutation in HNPCC tumors. A notable frequency of beta-catenin gene mutation (43%, 12 of 28) was found to occur in HNPCC colorectal tumors. Beta-catenin mutations were not detected in tumors with APC mutations. All beta-catenin mutations detected in HNPCC tumors existed within the regulatory domain of beta-catenin. Immunohistochemical staining of tumors with this mutation showed accumulation of beta-catenin protein in nuclei. These and previous data from our laboratory suggest that activation of the beta-catenin-Tcf signaling pathway, through either beta-catenin or APC mutation, contributes to HNPCC colorectal carcinogenesis in approximately 65% of cases.  (+info)

Up-regulation of macrophage wnt gene expression in adenoma-carcinoma progression of human colorectal cancer. (6/764)

Defects in the APC-beta-catenin pathway are common in colon cancer. We investigated whether aberrant regulation of upstream ligands stimulating this pathway occur in colon cancer. Using RNAase protection analysis, six out of eight wnt genes were expressed in 14 matched cases of normal, adenomatous and malignant colorectal tissues. Wnt 2 and wnt 5a were significantly up-regulated in the progression from normal through adenoma to carcinoma. Transcripts for wnts 4, 7b, 10b and 13, but not wnt 2 and wnt 5a were detected in several colorectal cell lines. In situ hybridization demonstrated that wnt 2 and wnt 5a transcripts were mainly in the lamina propria/stroma region with labelling predominantly in macrophages. Immunostaining with CD68 confirmed the wnt-expressing cells as macrophages. These results show a major difference in wnt expression in colon cancer compared to colon adenomas and suggest stromal wnt expression may play a role in tumour progression.  (+info)

A comparison of virtual and conventional colonoscopy for the detection of colorectal polyps. (7/764)

BACKGROUND: Virtual colonoscopy is a new method of imaging the colon in which thin-section, helical computed tomography (CT) is used to generate high-resolution, two-dimensional axial images. Three-dimensional images of the colon simulating those obtained with conventional colonoscopy are then reconstructed off-line. We compared the performance of virtual and conventional colonoscopy for the detection of colorectal polyps. METHODS: We prospectively studied 100 patients at high risk for colorectal neoplasia (60 men and 40 women; mean age, 62 years). We performed virtual colonoscopy immediately before conventional colonoscopy. We inserted a rectal tube and insufflated the colon with air to the maximal level that the patient could tolerate. We administered 1 mg of glucagon intravenously immediately before CT scanning to minimize the degree of smooth-muscle spasm and peristalsis and to reduce the patient's discomfort. RESULTS: The entire colon was clearly seen by virtual colonoscopy in 87 patients and by conventional colonoscopy in 89. Fifty-one patients had normal findings on conventional colonoscopy. In the other 49, we identified a total of 115 polyps and 3 carcinomas. Virtual colonoscopy identified all 3 cancers, 20 of 22 polyps that were 10 mm or more in diameter (91 percent), 33 of 40 that were 6 to 9 mm (82 percent), and 29 of 53 that were 5 mm or smaller (55 percent). There were 19 false positive findings of polyps and no false positive findings of cancer. Of the 69 adenomatous polyps, 46 of the 51 that were 6 mm or more in diameter (90 percent) and 12 of the 18 that were 5 mm or smaller (67 percent) were correctly identified by virtual colonoscopy. Although discomfort was not specifically recorded, none of the patients requested that virtual colonoscopy be stopped because of discomfort or pain. CONCLUSIONS: In a group of patients at high risk for colorectal neoplasia, virtual and conventional colonoscopy had similar efficacy for the detection of polyps that were 6 mm or more in diameter.  (+info)

Patterns of proliferative changes in crypts bordering colonic tumors: zonal histology and cell cycle marker expression. (8/764)

Proliferative crypt changes have been noted in mucosa bordering colonic carcinomas, but their biological significance is disputed. We anticipated that zonal patterning of histological changes and cell cycle marker expression would provide clues to the pathogenesis of these border changes. 81 specimens were examined including carcinomas, adenomatours polyps, adenomas with early carcinoma, flat adenomas and aberrant crypt foci. The spatial distribution and frequency of micro-architectural features, and mucosal thickness were determined in a border domain of 150 300 sequential crypts/specimen. Immunocytochemical expression of Ki67 and p53 antigens in crypts also was semi-quantitatively examined. We found that in 100% of carcinomas two histologically abnormal zones (Proximate and Middle) separated tumor from normal mucosa. Differences in the feature frequency between zones were statistically significant (p<0.05). Both zones showed mild increases in crypt cell expression of Ki67, with a statistically significant relationship to zonal patterning (p<0.005). Weak expression of p53 only appeared in rare cells. Crypt elongation with mucosal thickening (1.9x normal, p<0.001) in the Proximate and Middle zones distinguished carcinomas from border changes in all benign lesions, except flat adenomas. Since this change occurs in all cases of carcinoma, there is no correlation with tumor stage or grade. Also in carcinomas, elaborate complexes of attached crypts (connected crypt structures) were characteristic of the Middle zone, so that proximate zone was always architecturally simpler. We conclude, that despite continuous carcinoma growth, the invaded border mucosa maintains a prototypical zonal organization of molecular and histological crypt changes This spatially organized reaction pattern is likely to reflect an interplay between regulated growth and destructive processes in response to advancing carcinoma. Compared to the edges of benign colonic tumors, the edges of carcinomas are distinctive and consistent enough to be diagnostically useful.  (+info)

Background:. Colonoscopy withdrawal times are a critical element in determining quality of colonoscopy; however, few studies have evaluated specific factors that may influence the duration of withdrawal, and specifically short withdrawal times. Other factors affecting polyp detection rate, one element of quality of colonoscopy, also need further study.. Objective:. To identify factors associated with withdrawal time, inappropriately short withdrawal times, and polyp detection rate during colonoscopy.. Design:. Data were prospectively collected (05/08-06/09) on 802 colonoscopies conducted by 9 blinded endoscopists, including patient age and sex, indication, colonoscope insertion and withdrawal time, biopsies performed, number/size of polyps and method of resection, bowel preparation quality, time of day, day of week, endoscopist, position of the procedure within the endoscopists slate, and call status of the endoscopist..

N2 - RNF43 is an E3 ligase that suppresses the Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway and is frequently mutated in microsatellite-unstable colorectal carcinoma. To investigate the pathogenetic role of RNF43 in the serrated pathway, we conducted mutation analysis of RNF43 in several types of colorectal neoplasms. RNF43 mutation was found in 2 of 20 (10%) sessile serrated adenomas, 10 of 36 (28%) traditional serrated adenomas, 7 of 37 (19%) traditional serrated adenomas with cytologic dysplasia, and 9 of 31 (29%) BRAF-mutated/microsatellite-stable colorectal carcinomas; however, no mutation was found in 30 tubulovillous/villous adenomas. All mutations were ...
A colonic polyp is a protrusion in the lining of the bowel caused by an abnormal production of cells. It may be a tiny raised area; it may look like a grape or take the form of many tiny projections clustered together. Polyps are very common (occurring in 15-20% of the population) and most are not cancerous. Polyps should be removed if found as some may eventually (over many years) become a cancer in the colon (large bowel) or rectum (back passage).. Symptoms of colonic polyps. Most people are unaware of having polyps as they usually produce no symptoms and are often an incidental finding. Some polyps can however cause rectal bleeding or an excess production of mucus (slime) with bowel motions. Polyps are usually found as a result of bowel investigations - such as a sigmoidoscopy or barium enema. If they are found colonoscopy is required to view the whole of the large bowel and remove the polyp(s).. Treatments for colonic polyps. The most common method of removal is by:. ...
The teams analyses included 5433 participants with 2 colonoscopies. The researchers used multivariable logistic regression models to assess effects of index serrated polyps, high-risk adenomas, low-risk adenomas, and no adenomas on subsequent high-risk adenomas or large serrated polyps on surveillance colonoscopy. Synchronous serrated polyps, within each index risk group, were assessed for size and by histology. Serrated polyps comprize hyperplastic polyps, sessile serrated adenomas/polyps, and traditional serrated adenomas. The doctors referred to sessile serrated adenomas/polyps and traditional serrated adenomas collectively as STSAs.. High-risk adenomas and synchronous large serrated polyps, high-risk adenomas with synchronous STSA, and high-risk adenomas alone at index colonoscopy significantly increased the risk of metachronous high-risk adenomas compared to the reference group. Large index serrated polyps alone or index STSA alone significantly increased the risk of a large metachronous ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Serrated polyps of the colon. AU - Sugumar, Aravind. AU - Sinicrope, Frank A.. PY - 2010/12/17. Y1 - 2010/12/17. N2 - Until recently, colonic polyps were traditionally classified as either hyperplastic or adenomatous, and only the latter were believed to have the potential to progress to carcinoma. However, it is now appreciated that a subset of serrated polyps also appear to have malignant potential. Serrated polyps are a heterogeneous group of colon polyps that include hyperplastic polyps, sessile serrated adenomas (SSAs), traditional serrated adenomas, and mixed polyps. Insights into these polyps were derived, in part, from studies of patients with the hyperplastic polyposis syndrome. SSAs show a predilection for the right colon, have a distinct histology, and their molecular genetic profile has recently been linked to a pathway for colon tumorigenesis that is characterized by microsatellite instability. Based upon available evidence, it is recommended that patients with ...

Spectra from 86 normal colonic sites, 35 hyperplastic polyps, and 49 adenomatous polyps were recorded in vivo. Polyp type was independently determined by two senior pathologists who were unaware of the fluorescence measurement. A multivariate linear regression analysis was used to differentiate spectra from hyperplastic and adenomatous polyps and resulted in a sensitivity, specificity, predictive value positive, and predictive value negative for identifying adenomatous polyps of 86%, 80%, 86%, and 80%, respectively. These values were not significantly ...
What puts someone at risk for developing colon polyps? This is something that can develop in anyone; however, you may be more likely to deal with polyps if you are over 50 years old, you have a family history of colorectal cancer or polyps, youve been diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease (e.g. Crohns disease; ulcerative colitis) or you are obese. Those who smoke or have uncontrolled type 2 diabetes are also at risk.. How are colon polyps detected? The most common procedure used to detect and remove polyps is a colonoscopy. This procedure is performed right here in our office under conscious sedation. Once the sedation has taken effect, we will guide the scope into the rectum and through the colon. If polyps are detected during the procedure, we also have special tools that can be inserted into the scope to remove the tissue. Most colonoscopies take anywhere from 20-30 minutes but may take longer if we need to remove polyps.. If you have questions or concerns about colon polyps, or if you ...
How your gastroenterologist in Newport Beach, CA, can help with colon issues. Many people would rather not talk about colon issues, but it is an important topic. One of the more frequent issues affecting the colon is polyps. If you are dealing with this issue, Dr. Glenn D. Madokoro in Newport Beach, CA, can help!. More about Polyps. Polyps are more common than people realize, and the older you get, the more susceptible you are to their formation. The average person who is 60 years old has a 25% chance of developing a colon polyp. Formation of polyps may be related to having a high fat and low fiber diet, and there may also be a genetic component.. Although hyperplastic polyps are non-cancerous, adenomas, another type of polyp, can be an early sign of colon cancer. Polyps need to be removed for biopsy to determine whether they are benign (non-cancerous) or potentially an early sign of cancer.. Because you become more susceptible to colon polyps as you get older, a colon cancer screening via ...
Introduction Knowing if polyps are larger than 10mm is critical when determining colonoscopic surveillance strategies. Judging polyp size from the endoscopic view alone becomes important if polyps are not retrieved intact. Strategies based on deliberately discarding small polyps rely on accurate discrimination of polyp size but little is known about endoscopists ability to make this judgement. Our aim is to assess the accuracy of polyp size estimation using a novel in vitro model, comparing different professional groups and use of accessories to improve estimates. ...

Large colonic polyps used to be managed by a surgeon, similar to how colon cancer is still managed…cut it out and hope for the best. However, it is clear that when possible, these large non-cancerous polyps are more safely removed using advanced endoscopic techniques, such as endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR). Despite excellent safety data on endoscopic removal of large polyps, there is still a reluctance by many physicians to send their patients for EMR. Why wouldnt a fellow endoscopist sent their patients for a procedure that is as effective, safer, with no significant recovery time, and far less expensive when compared to surgery? Im not entirely sure…maybe there is unfamiliarity with the technique among many physicians, or perhaps there is ignorance about the actual risks of surgery. Or maybe (just maybe) sending a patient for surgery is a gastroenterologists way of protecting his or her delicate ego…as in, If I cant remove it than it cant be done by anyone with a scope!. The ...
Results Seen in 83 men and 65 women ranging in age from 32 to 89 years and 127 were left sided with 22 in the right colon. Seventy-eight of the 149 TSAs showed evidence of another polyp (52.34%): 32 were low-grade tubular/tubulovillous adenomas (TAs/TVAs; 41%), 28 were HPs (36%) and 18 were SSAs (23%). Eleven of the 22 right-sided TSAs were associated with a precursor lesion (1 HP and 7 SSA). In addition, five TSAs showed more than one polyp type: TSA with TA/TVA and HP (3); TSA with TA/TVA and SSA (2). The TAs/TVAs were adjacent to the TSA but occurred as a separate discrete polyp, while HPs and SSAs were intermingled with the TSA and present at the base and surface of the lesion.. ...
The pathogenesis and risk of malignancy of traditional serrated adenomas (TSAs) are unclear.

A technique for lectin-peroxidase histochemistry was adapted for the study of formalin fixed paraffin embedded colonic tissue. Ten lectins with differing carbohydrate binding specificity were tested against 20 normal rectal biopsy specimens and tissue from 19 colonic carcinomata, 19 tubular or tubulovillous adenomata, and 19 hyperplastic polyps. None of the normal rectal biopsy specimens bound the lectins peanut agglutinin (PNA), Griffonia simplicifolia II (GSII), and Ulex europaeus I (UEAI), whereas 18 carcinomata, 12 adenomata, and 18 hyperplastic polyps showed affinity for one or more of these lectins. Hyperplastic colonic polyps are shown to possess similar abnormalities in glycoprotein structure to malignant and adenomatous colonic tissue. This may simply indicate a non-specific reaction to changed rates of cell proliferation but might represent a more fundamental association between hyperplastic polyps and adenocarcinomas.. ...

Colonoscopy is the gold standard screening test for colorectal cancer. Removal of pre-malignant colon polyps during colonoscopy reduces colorectal cancer mortality by over 50%. However, while colonoscopy is highly effective at preventing distal (left sided) colon cancers, it provides only limited protection from cancer in the proximal (right side) colon. Our goal is to determine if additional pre-cancerous colon polyps can be identified by looking at the right side of the colon in retroflexion. During retroflexion the tip of the colonoscope is turned 180 degrees; allowing the doctor to view the backs of colonic folds. If additional polyps can be identified in this manner colonoscopy will become a more efficient method of screening for colon cancer.. In order to evaluate how effective right colon retroflexion is at detecting polyps in the proximal colon we plan on performing a randomized, controlled trial. Patients undergoing screening or follow up colonoscopy will be invited to participate in ...

Colon polyp. Coloured 3D computed tomography (CT) scan of a pedunculated (stalked) polyp in the colon (large intestine) of a patient. Polyps are benign (non-cancerous) growths that arise from mucous membranes. Although benign, polyps are generally removed surgically as their growth may obstruct the passage of food, and some polyps may turn cancerous over time. - Stock Image C026/9026
Background The aim of this study was to establish if endoscopists can reliably self-assess their ability to perform simulated colonic polypectomy. Methods Novices, intermediates, advanced, and experts performed a video-recorded polypectomy task using the Welsh Institute for Minimal Access Therapy (WIMAT) colonoscopy suitcase simulator. This involved removal of a simple polyp (A) and a complex polyp (B). Participants self-assessed themselves using a Direct Observation of Polypectomy Skills (DOPyS) assessment form. Two blinded, independent, Joint Advisory Group on Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (JAG) accredited assessors graded each performance using the same DOPyS scoring. The Spearman coefficient was used to determine the correlation between self and assessors scores. Results Eighty participants completed the task. There was a weak correlation between assessors scores and self-assessment scores for all groups (novices: ρ = −.44, P = .85; intermediates: ρ = −.16, P = .51; advanced: ρ = .16, ...
Results: Seven patients were recruited (five male; mean age 66 years). Polyps were from 20 to 50mm in diameter (mean 30mm), six were in the right colon, and three were on the mesenteric border of the bowel. Final pathology was benign in all cases. Mean EMR time was 29 minutes, mean time taken for TAS was 37 minutes, and mean total operative time was 129 minutes. Two TAS procedures required conversion to LC (one unresectable polyp and one device failure). Five TAS procedures were completed, with a mean hospital stay of 1.2 days, and no complications. Follow-up colonoscopy revealed complete healing in all cases, with no recurrence of polyp to the current time. One patient (initial 5cm sigmoid polyp) had a very mild asymptomatic stricture in the sigmoid colon ...

AIM: To examine the efficacy and complications of colonoscopic resection of colorectal polypoid lesions. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 1354 polypectomies performed on 1038 patients over a ten-year period. One hundred and sixty of these were performed for large polyps, those measuring ,= 20 mm. Size, shape, location, histology, the technique of polypectomy used, complications, drugs assumption and associated intestinal or extra intestinal diseases were 2 analyzed. For statistical analysis, the Pearson chi(2) test, NPC test and a Binary Logistic Regression were used. RESULTS: The mean patient age was 65.9 +/- 12.4 years, with 671 men and 367 women. The mean size of polyps removed was 9.45 +/- 9.56 mm while the size of large polyps was 31.5 +/- 10.8 mm. There were 388 pedunculated and 966 sessile polyps and the most common location was the sigmoid colon (41.3%). The most frequent histology was tubular adenoma (55.9%) while for the large polyps was villous (92/160 -57.5%). Coexistent ...

TY - CHAP. T1 - The Effects of Preprocessing on Colorectal Polyp Detecting by Fuzzy Algorithm. AU - Sziová, Brigita. AU - Nagy, Szilvia. AU - Kóczy, László T.. PY - 2021. Y1 - 2021. N2 - In the following study the effects of two image preprocessing methods, namely Gaussian filtering and Wiener filtering, is studied on the results of a fuzzy inference method previously developed by the authors, for determining whether a colonoscopy picture segment contains any colorectal polyp. As earlier results show that less blurry, less compressed and less noisy images tend to be better classifiable, the effects of noise suppression with a Gaussian filter, which makes the images also blurrier, was beneficial on noisy, compressed images, and rather maleficent in good quality pictures. The effects of the Wiener filter, which both decreases noise and enhances edges, did not really manifest in classification improvement.. AB - In the following study the effects of two image preprocessing methods, namely ...
Hyperplastic polyps of the colon are common benign lesions. They frequently arise at the crest of a mucosal fold where they present as small, sessile polyps usually measuring less than 5 mm in diameter with a smooth convex surface.1 Although traditionally regarded as non-neoplastic, recent evidence has shown hyperplastic polyps to have molecular features of neoplasia.2 Histologically they have a very characteristic appearance of elongated crypts with prominent epithelial infoldings giving a pathognomonic serrated pattern. The majority of hyperplastic polyps occur in the rectosigmoid where they may be single or often multiple; however their numbers rarely exceed 10.1 The occurrence of multiple or large hyperplastic polyps in the large bowel is termed hyperplastic polyposis coli.1 3 4 Hyperplastic polyposis coli is a rare condition characterised by the presence of large multiple hyperplastic polyps, some of which may show dysplasia, an occurrence that is felt to contribute significantly to the ...
Colon Polyps A colon polyp is a growth of extra tissue in the lining of the rectum or colon. While some can be cancerous, most are not. However, almost all colon cancer does begin as a polyp. Therefore, by removing polyps early, the chances of it growing into colon cancer are eliminated. People with a higher risk for developing polyps are anyone over age 50, those who have had polyps previously or those who have a family history of polyps or colon cancer. However you can still be at risk for polyps or colon cancer without having a family history of either condition. In fact, 80 percent of those who are diagnosed with colon cancer have no family history. Polyps generally do not cause symptoms. If a patient does have symptoms, they can include blood in their underwear or on toilet paper after a bowel movement, blood in stool, or constipation or diarrhea that has lasted more than a week. Polyps can be removed during a colonoscopy. If precancerous colon polyps are removed, the chance of the polyp ...

Scheduled for a colonoscopy? Ask your physician to play Mozart while shes peering through that endoscope, and she may do a better job of detecting potentially cancerous polyps in your colon and rectum, called adenomas. Colonic polyps are common precursors to colon cancer. Adenomas are a type of polyp that may develop into invasive colorectal cancer. Adenocarcinoma of the colon is the most common form of colorectal cancer.
What is the best diagnostic test to use in the workup of rectal bleeding and other gastrointestinal symptoms? To the old debate between barium enemas and colonoscopy (1) can now be added a new modality, hydrocolonic sonography. Although conventional transabdominal ultrasonography has not proved useful in the evaluation of large bowel neoplasia, the instillation of water in the colon is a clever innovation. Limberg has previously shown its efficacy in the diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease (2). The article by Limberg is an update of an earlier study by this investigator (3), confirming its efficacy in diagnosing colorectal neoplasia in a series of apparently typical patients referred for colonoscopy. It almost equals the sensitivity of colonoscopy in identifying carcinomas and large polyps. Its real competition, however, is with barium enemas, with which it has comparable efficacy, but hydrocolonic sonography avoids radiographic exposure and adds the ability to evaluate the bowel wall and ...

A polyp is a general name for a benign warty growth of the lining of any organ. If the growth arises from the large bowel or colon it is a colonic polyp. Find out about the types of colonic polyp.
A: Colonic polyps are collections of cells arising and protruding from the inside lining of the colon. About two-thirds of colonic polyps are benign tumors (non-cancerous adenomas), most others being hyperplastic tissue (abnormal proliferation of cells) or other benign growths.
The colon is an important part of the digestive system. It is the last portion of this complex system, responsible for the important extraction of salt and water from solid waste, prior to excretion. The human colon consists of four sections. They are identified as the rising, transverse, coming down, and the sigmoid segments. The development of polyps or abnormal tissue development within the colon is commonly observed in people who are overweight. Colon polyps are also observed in people who extensively enjoy smoking, a diet plan that is high in fat and low in fiber, as well as those who have a family history of the condition ...

What happens after colon polyp removed - I have a colon polyp that needs to be removed surgically what is the process? Your doctor will exp. I am sure your doctor would be happy to explain. Surgical removal means an operation to remove the polyp. There are two types of operation: open surgery or laparoscopic surgery (this one is a mini operation with smaller cuts as compared to open surgery which is a bigger cut). But talk it over with your surgeon.
Results A total of 1438 colonoscopies were reviewed. Polyps were found and removed in 314 (22%). Only 205 were included in further analysis. The remaining 109 were excluded because further follow-up indication was based on different issues (12 IBD, 19 colon cancers, 34 technical problems, 21 unknown previous risk status, 23 referred for surgery). Of the included 205, 34 patients were given an appointment in 1 year (high risk), one in 2 years, 28 in 3 years (intermediate risk), 142 in 5 years or no follow-up (low risk). The follow-up indication was compliant with BSG guidelines in 136 (66.3%) cases. In 33 (16.1%) patients the follow-up appointment was scheduled too early and in 4 (2%) too late. The remaining 32 (15.6%) were booked for later decision in outpatient clinic. They belonged to the intermediate (No.=28) and high (No.=4) risk groups. Overall, in the 3-months period, 24 inappropriate colonoscopies and 32 extra outpatient appointments were scheduled for the following year alone. In a ...

Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States and fourth worldwide. Colorectal cancer often develops from precancerous polyps which, when found early, may be easily and safely removed. Colorectal polyps are often asymptomatic and are typically detected through routine optical colonoscopy (OC) screening. While there have been many advancements in polyp detection and OC, roughly 22% of polyps still go undetected during an OC screen and 4-6% of diagnosed colorectal cancers are thought to have been missed on prior colonoscopies. Because the incidence and mortality of colorectal cancer decreases with early detection, it is important to reduce the rates of undetected polyps. Researchers at Arizona State University in collaboration with Dr. Gurudu of the Mayo Clinic have developed two novel systems for computer-aided detection of polyps in optical colonoscopy images. The first system detects polyps by using boundary classifiers and a voting scheme to automatically ...
The significance of expression of different mucins in succession of malignant transformation of colorectal polyps is not determined yet. The aim of the present study was to determine the pattern of expression of MUC1, MUC2, MUC5AC and MUC6 in colorectal polyps and to evaluate the applicability of using mucin expression in predicting the extent of malignant transformation in colorectal polyps. A total of 454 polyp specimens comprising 36 hyperplastic polyps, 15 serrated adenomas, 258 tubular adenomas, 114 tubulovillous adenomas, and 31 villous adenomas were included in this study, and were immunostained for MUC1, MUC2, MUC5AC and MUC6 by using mucin specific antibodies. MUC1 and MUC6 were absent in all hyperplastic polyps and their expression was higher in serrated and traditional adenomas. Only 5 cases including 2 serrated adenomas, 1 tubulovillous adenoma, and 2 villous adenomas stained negative for MUC2. The highest expression of MUC5AC was observed in serrated adenomas followed by tubular adenomas.

A colonoscopy may frequently miss polyps and cancers. A number of techniques have emerged to improve visualization and to reduce the rate of adenoma miss. We conducted a randomized controlled trial (RCT) in two clinics of the Gastrointestinal Department of the Sanitas University Foundation in Bogota, Colombia. Eligible adult patients presenting for screening or diagnostic elective colonoscopy were randomlsy allocated to undergo conventional colonoscopy or narrow-band imaging (NBI) during instrument withdrawal by three experienced endoscopists. For the systematic review, studies were identified from the Cochrane Library, PUBMED and LILACS and assessed using the Cochrane risk of bias tool. We enrolled a total of 482 patients (62.5% female), with a mean age of 58.33 years (SD 12.91); 241 into the intervention (NBI) colonoscopy and 241 into the conventional colonoscopy group. Most patients presented for diagnostic colonoscopy (75.3%). The overall rate of polyp detection was significantly higher in the

Methods: Colonoscopy is a technique for examine colon cancer, polyps. In endoscopy, video capsule is universally used mechanism for finding gastrointestinal stages. But both the mechanisms are used to find the colon cancer or colorectal polyp. The Automatic Polyp Detection sub-challenge conducted as part of the Endoscopic Vision Challenge (http://endovis.grand-challenge.org). Method: Colonoscopy may be primary way of improve the ability of colon cancer detection especially flat lesions. Which otherwise may be difficult to detect. Recently, automatic polyp detection algorithms have been proposed with various degrees of success. Though polyp detection in colonoscopy and other traditional endoscopy procedure based images is becoming a mature field, due to its unique imaging characteristics, detecting polyps automatically in colonoscopy is a hard problem. So the proposed video capsule cam supports to diagnose the polyps accurate and easy to identify its pattern. Existing methodology mainly concentrated on

AU - Garewal, H.. PY - 1990/11/21. Y1 - 1990/11/21. N2 - An important determinant in interpreting the results of colorectal polyp chemoprevention trials is the rate of polyps missed during colonoscopic examination. We prospectively examined 90 patients by tandem colonoscopy performed by two alternating examiners. In 69 (76.7%) patients, 221 neoplastic lesions were documented histologically. Of a total of 58 lesions detected in 31 patients, no neoplastic lesion greater than or equal to 10 mm in size was missed; 16% of diminutive (≤5 mm) neoplastic polyps and 12.3% of mediumsized (6-9 mm) neoplastic polyps were missed by the first examiner. We conclude that an experienced colonoscopist will miss about 15% of colorectal neoplastic polyps less than 10 mm in size in the setting of adequate bowel preparation. ...
INTRODUCTION. Computed tomography colonography (CTC), or virtual colonoscopy, is an imaging method based on the acquisition of multiple sections obtained by multidetector computed tomography (MDCT), generating sectional views of the colon that later can be reformatted in multiple planes and also processed in to allow endoluminal navigation, as in optical colonoscopy (OC)(1) . Among its main advantages, this method is fast, as the examination is performed in less than 15 minutes, without requiring sedation. For over a decade, CTC has been utilized in the investigation of colonic polyps and colorectal cancer (CRC). Developments in the clinical and epidemiological knowledge on CRC and the many technological advances incorporated by CTC have transformed the method from an investigation tool into a viable option for CRC screening(2 4) .. The method is less invasive than OC for the screening of polyps and may preferably be utilized in asymptomatic individuals with low risk for development of CRC, in ...
Most colorectal cancers evolve from colorectal adenomatous polyps in a pathway known as the adenoma to carcinoma sequence. Early detection and removal of colorectal adenomas can prevent the development of colorectal cancer. The vast majority of these polyps can be resected endoscopically. Advances in endoscopic resection techniques have led to expanded indications for endoscopic polypectomy, whereby giant polyps, scarred lesions and early cancers may be cured. We will outline conventional endoscopic mucosal resection techniques as well as more complex resection methods such as endoscopic submucosal dissection, full thickness resection and the use of combined endoscopic and laparoscopic assisted approaches to resection. We will also explore the role of a virtual multidisciplinary team to aid decision-making when managing large and complex colorectal polyps. This review will provide an update on the endoscopic management of colorectal polyps and highlight exciting new developments in this ...
Serrated adenomas form a distinct subtype of colorectal pre-malignant lesions that may progress to malignancy along a different molecular pathway than the conventional adenoma-carcinoma pathway. Previous studies have hypothesised that BRAF mutation and promoter hypermethylation plays a role, but the evidence for this is not robust. We aimed to carry out a whole-genome loss of heterozygosity analysis, followed by targeted promoter methylation and expression analysis to identify potential pathways in serrated adenomas. An initial panel of 9 sessile serrated adenomas (SSA) and one TSA were analysed using Illumina Goldengate HumanLinkage panel arrays to ascertain regions of loss of heterozygosity. This was verified via molecular inversion probe analysis and microsatellite analysis of a further 32 samples. Methylation analysis of genes of interest was carried out using methylation specific PCR (verified by pyrosequencing) and immunohistochemistry used to correlate loss of expression of genes of interest.

The reef aquarium hobby long ago divided stony corals into two categories, Large Polyp Stony (LPS) and Small Polyp Stony (SPS). This view is somewhat antiquated, but still serves as a guideline for care where SPS are thought to require more expert care than their LPS counterparts. The thinking behind this is on the whole LPS are more tolerant to water quality than SPS and SPS tend to require very intense light and flow. As with any rule, there are a multitude of exceptions so we encourage reef hobbyists to research each of the SPS corals individually to determine their care requirements. For example, there is a world of difference between an Acropora and a Seriatopora when it comes to coral husbandry.
The diagnostic difficulties of differentiating epithelial misplacement from invasive cancer in colorectal adenomatous polyps have been recognised for many years. Nevertheless, the introduction of population screening in the UK has resulted in extraordinary diagnostic problems. Larger sigmoid colonic adenomatous polyps, which are those most likely to show epithelial misplacement, are specifically selected into such screening programmes, because these polyps are likely to bleed and screening is based on the detection of occult blood. The diagnostic challenges associated with this particular phenomenon have necessitated the institution of an Expert Board: this is a review of the first five years of its practice, during which time 256 polyps from 249 patients have been assessed. Indeed, the Expert Board contains three pathologists, because those pathologists do not necessarily agree, and a consensus diagnosis is required to drive appropriate patient management. However, this study has shown ...

It is generally accepted that adenomatous polyps represent the natural precursor of many colorectal malignancies. The sequence, however, which leads from a normally appearing mucosa to cancer is complex and involves many steps, including a hyperproliferative mucosa with an upward expansion of the replicative compartment. The current study evaluates cell replication in normal colorectal mucosa of patients with adenomatous polyps of various types and relates the observed findings to the main clinical and morphologic features of adenomas. Forty-four patients with polyps and 27 controls entered the study. Samples of colorectal mucosa were taken at endoscopy and cell replication was evaluated with a standard autoradiographic procedure. Cell replication was expressed as labeling index (LI), in the whole crypt and in each of the five longitudinal compartments in which the crypts were divided. Total LI and LI per crypt compartment were significantly higher (P , 0.02 and P , 0.01, respectively) than in ...
We examined whether PDR and subsequently ADR could be increased using the WT as a surrogate marker via the Hawthorne effect (knowing that the WT was assessed) and feedback (provided after the first study phase). Furthermore, the retention of knowledge gained within the organisation was assessed by a 1-year follow-up.. Information and feedback after the first phase had a significant impact on PDR, which almost doubled (22% vs 42%). The endoscopists were focusing on PDR through the surrogate marker (WT) and the feedback given. The PDRs increased at all levels of monitored WTs. The mean WT did, however, not increase significantly in between the first and second phases. Thus, monitoring and feedback appears to be crucial factors for the increase in PDR and not the measured parameter (ie, the WT itself). The increase in PDR was additionally mirrored in an increased ADR. The increased PDR/ADR was found to be maintained, and thus the endoscopy team was able to maintain focus on the importance of PDR ...
The role of aspirin in increasing the risk of clinically significant post-polypectomy bleeding is unclear.. In this study, physicians from the United States determined whether aspirin use prior to colonoscopy increases the risk of clinically significant post-polypectomy bleeding.. The team performed a case-control study of patients with clinically significant post-polypectomy bleeding. The control group was made up of matched patients who had undergone polypectomy without any complications. The team collected data on age, gender, recent use of aspirin or NSAIDs, polyp characteristics, and polypectomy technique. During the study period, 20,636 patients underwent colonoscopy with polypectomy; 101 patients presented with clinically significant post-polypectomy bleeding. The team excluded 20 patients from analysis because of prior anticoagulant use. They matched the remaining 81 patients with 81 patients who had undergone colonoscopy without complications. The physicians found that the 2 two groups ...

Although serrated polyps were historically considered to pose little risk, it is now understood that progression down the serrated pathway could account for as many as 15%-35% of colorectal cancers. The sessile serrated adenoma/polyp (SSA/P) is the most prevalent pre-invasive serrated lesion. Our objective was to identify the CpG loci that are persistently hyper-methylated during serrated carcinogenesis, from the early SSA/P lesion through the later cancer phases of neoplasia development. We queried the loci hyper-methylated in serrated cancers within our rightsided SSA/Ps from the New Hampshire Colonoscopy Registry, using the Illumina Infinium Human Methylation 450 k panel to comprehensively assess the DNA methylation status. We identified CpG loci and regions consistently hyper-methylated throughout the serrated carcinogenesis spectrum, in both our SSA/P specimens and in serrated cancers. Hyper-methylated CpG loci included the known the tumor suppressor gene RET (p = 5.72 x 10−10), as well as loci
TY - JOUR. T1 - In vitro models of human colonic adenomatous polyps.. AU - Willson, J. K.. AU - Bittner, G. N.. PY - 1988. Y1 - 1988. N2 - In this report we describe methods which were used to cultivate cell lines from adenomatous polyps. Many of the techniques used have evolved from our past experience with the cultivation of colonic epithelial neoplastic cells (McBain et al., 1984) and the experience of others successful in the cultivation of benign and cancerous colon tissues. We feel that the preservation of cell-to-cell associations is a key to our successful cultivation of adenomas. Moyer (Moyer and Aust, 1984) has also pointed out the importance of preserving cell-to-cell associations in her successful studies to culture normal and neoplastic colonic tissues. Friedmans primary culture system for adenomatous polyps (Friedman et al., 1981) is further evidence supporting this point. Using the techniques described in this report, three cell lines, two small tubular polyps and one villous ...

Screening with flexible sigmoidoscopy is becoming standard for asymptomatic persons older than 50 years. Because adenomatous polyps found in the distal colon have been associated with adenomatous polyps in the proximal colon, full colonoscopy is generally recommended for patients with distal adenomas. Small polyps (less than 1 cm) seem to have a lower risk of malignant transformation than do larger polyps and are less likely to be malignant or to have high-grade histologic features. With increasing data, it appears that there is a low prevalence of histologically advanced polyps in the proximal colon among patients with small distal tubular adenomas. Wallace and associates conducted a study to determine the prevalence of advanced adenomatous polyps in the proximal colon among patients with small tubular adenomas found on flexible ...

The purpose of this paper was to investigate the effect of radiologist experience and increasing exposure to CT colonography on reader performance. Three radiologists of differing general experience (consultant, research fellow, trainee) independently analysed 100 CT colonographic datasets. Readers had no prior experience of CT colonography and received feedback and training after the first 50 cases from an independent experienced radiologist. Diagnostic performance and reporting times were compared for the first and second 50 datasets and compared with the results of a radiologist experienced in CT colonography. Before training only the consultant reader achieved statistical equivalence with the reference standard for detection of larger polyps. After training, detection rates ranged between 25 and 58% for larger polyps. Only the trainee significantly improved after training ( P=0.007), with performance of other readers unchanged or even worse. Reporting times following training were reduced ...
Photo: Dr. John Baron. Vitamin image by Colin Dunn.]. The results, published October 14 in the New England Journal of Medicine, came as a disappointment to the researchers. Previous observational studies had pointed to an association between lower colorectal cancer risk and higher vitamin D blood levels, and to lower colorectal cancer risk alongside increased calcium intake.. Theres a lot of interest in vitamin D these days because of many positive findings in non-randomized studies, explained the studys lead author Dr. John Baron, research professor in the Gillings School and the UNC School of Medicine, and a member of the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center. In particular, vitamin D has been investigated for its protective benefits against a range of diseases, including colorectal cancer.. We found that vitamin D and calcium supplements did not affect the occurrence of colon polyps, which are benign precursors to colorectal cancer. So our results came as a ...
My mother is 54 yrs old & suffering from |b|multiple polyps in the large intestine|/b|. It was detected around 1 year back when the colonscopy was done. It was suggested by the doctors that the large intestine should be surgically removed. The polyps were tested through biopsy for malignancy, & they were found non-malignant. However, we did not go for the surgery. As of now the situation is that her haemoglobin level is around 9. She can sometimes notice fresh blood in the stools & the occult blood is always present. She has lost almost 15 kg weight in last 1 year. Now since the tests like colonscopy are very painful we cannot repeat it frequently. Can you suggest any other tests etc as to know about the malignancy in the polyps? Can blood tests reveal that? Can MRI tell about the polyps turning into cancer? Please suggest the how frequently tests like colonscopy be done to know about the malignancy? If a polyp tests negative once in the first colonoscopy, how do we keep a check on the development of
The study included 364 individuals (197 women and 167 men) in whom colorectal polyps were detected based on the lower gastrointestinal tract endoscopy and histopathological examination. Depending on a number of the lesions, the participants were divided into two groups: A) with one polyp (n = 177), and B) with at least two polyps (n = 187). Waist circumference was determined in all the subjects, and the results were subjected to statistical analysis. ...
Background Individuals with serrated polyps (SP) are at higher risk for synchronous colorectal advanced neoplasms (AN) and cancers. However, it remains unclear whether there is a unique involvement of the serrated pathway and/or the classical adenoma-carcinoma sequence in this setting. Methods Colorectal ANs, which include tubular adenomas ≥10 mm, adenomas with villous histology, high-grade intraepithelial neoplasms, and cancers, were collected retrospectively. The groups included ANs with (AN+SP) or without (AN-only) coexisting SPs. Clinicopathological findings were compared between groups. BRAF and KRAS mutations in ANs and SPs, and methylation levels at long interspersed element-1 (LINE-1) in adjacent mucosa were determined by pyrosequencing. Results Seventy-five ANs from 40 patients in the AN+SP group, and 179 ANs from 119 patients in the AN-only group were analyzed. There were no significant differences in clinicopathological findings between the two groups, except that intraepithelial
The rational for this examination is that the large majority of malignant tumors arise from colon polyps, and that the malignant transformation into cancer usually takes several years. If a colon polyp is detected in time, it can be removed in one and the same colonoscopy session, and thus occurrence of large bowel cancer can be prevented.. Preventative colonoscopy should start in the 5 th decade. If there are no pathological findings, it should be repeated in about 8 to 10 years. In case of colon polyps and the grade of dysplasia in the removed tissue a control colonoscopy should be done in a shorter period of time. The gastroenterologist / endoscopist will let you know.. There are no real good alternatives to a preventative colonoscopy. Tests for blood in the stool are limited by the fact that polyps usually do not bleed. Most commonly these tests are only positive when colorectal cancer has already developed.. ...
Similar to an intrauterine device (IUD), uterine polyps may act as a contraceptive by preventing an embryo from implanting in the uterus.. Some evidence suggests that the body attacks polyps as foreign elements. This may lead to inflammation which will make it more difficult for implantation.. Polyps may cause blockage where the fallopian tube enters the uterine cavity. This prevents the sperm from finding an egg to fertilize. Polyps may also block the canal of the cervix which directly blocks the uterus. Polyps may also contribute to miscarriages. Polyps can play a major role in infertility.. ...

Patients with SPS are at high risk of developing colorectal cancer and need expert surveillance or surgery.. The US Multi-Society Task Force on colorectal cancer now recommends yearly surveillance in SPS, but 3-6 monthly procedures may be required to control the polyps initially. A possible algorithm of clinical and endoscopic management in SPS has recently been proposed.. Colonoscopy must be meticulous as SSA/P are hard to see and can grow rapidly. Enhanced imaging techniques such as chromendoscopy or narrow band imaging may be helpful. Hyperplastic polyps ,5mm can be noted but left alone. All lesions ,5mm diameter should be removed.. There will be some patients with SPS whose polyps are not adequately controlled by colonoscopy and polypectomy. In this situation surgery is the best management option and generally, because of the pancolonic location of the polyps, this involves colectomy and ileo-rectal anastomosis.. There is controversy as to whether first degree relatives of patients with SPS ...

Mechanics of a Colonoscopy. During a colonoscopy, a GI doctor inserts a flexible tube called a colonoscope into the rectum and extends it to the farthest point in the large intestine known as the cecum. The colonoscope is equipped with a tiny camera that transmits live video to a monitor. As the tube is withdrawn, the doctor examines the colon wall for adenomas and removes suspicious growths.. Adenoma detection rate (ADR) is the primary indicator of the quality of a colonoscopy procedure because adenoma removal is associated with decreased colon cancer risk. Therefore, any method or device that enhances a physicians ability to detect polyps or lesions has the potential to lower colon cancer incidence.. The Endocuff was designed to smooth out folds in the colon wall and help maintain colonoscope stability during withdrawal. Another quality measure of an effective colonoscopy is withdrawal time, the number of minutes it takes for a physician to view the colon from cecum to rectum. The Endocuff ...

The mononuclear leukocytes from peripheral blood samples of individuals with (n = 30) and without (n = 48) colonic polyps were examined for their abilities to carry out unscheduled DNA synthesis (UDS) induced by N-acetoxy-N-2-fluorenylacetamide (N-AcO-2-FAA). Individuals with polyps had significantly reduced UDS values compared to the nonpolyp group (P , 0.01). Furthermore, in a more comprehensive study, patients with hyperplastic polyps had N-AcO-2-FAA-induced UDS values not significantly different from control individuals who were asymptomatic and free from colonic disease as judged by complete colonoscopy. However, patients who had had adenomatous polyps in their large bowel had significantly reduced levels of N-AcO-2-FAA-induced UDS in their mononuclear leukocytes (P , 0.005). When N-AcO-2-FAA binding to DNA determinations were made in parallel and DNA repair proficiency indices were calculated (i.e., N-AcO-2-FAA-induced UDS/N-AcO-2-FAA binding to DNA), the patients with adenomatous polyps ...
When youre looking for a new doctor, what criteria go into making your decision? You probably start by checking your insurance for an in-network provider. Next, you might narrow down the list by location, office hours, convenience of scheduling, and personal recommendations. All of these are great items to consider, and they should play a role in your decision. But when it comes to choosing a qualified gastroenterologist to perform your colonoscopy, theres one item that matters most: adenoma detection rate.. Adenoma detection rate, or ADR, is a numeric value that represents the percentage of times your gastroenterologist detects a precancerous polyp during screening colonoscopies. This number is considered a benchmark of quality and care, as it indicates how thorough your doctor will be during your examination.. Although gastroenterologists undergo the most extensive training in performing colonoscopies, their rates of polyp detection can vary significantly. When interviewing ...
