textabstractThe population-based Basque Colorectal Cancer (CRC) Screening Programme started in 2009 with a biennial immunochemical quantitative test (FIT) biennial and colonoscopy under sedation in positive cases. The population target of 586,700 residents was from 50 to 69 years old and the total coverage was reached at the beginning of 2014. The aim of our study was to determine possible scenarios in terms of incidence, mortality and reduction of Life-years-Lost (L-y-L) in the medium and long ...

Colonoscopy should be delivered by endoscopists performing high quality procedures. The British Society of Gastroenterology, the UK Joint Advisory Group on GI Endoscopy, and the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland have developed quality assurance measures and key performance indicators for the delivery of colonoscopy within the UK. This document sets minimal standards for delivery of procedures along with aspirational targets that all endoscopists should aim for.

Background and study aims: The value of a colonoscopy quality assurance (QA) register may be questioned if it brings no new information on which to act for quality improvement, e. g. if self-assessed quality of colonoscopy performance correlates perfectly with registered performance. Patients and methods: In this explorative study, 39 (33 Norwegian and 6 Swedish) out of 99 new endoscopists joining the Norwegian QA register Gastronet from 2008 to 2013 responded to an invitation to fill in a quest...

Abstract Background Colonoscopic polypectomy is effective in reducing the incidence of and mortality from colorectal cancer, but is not complication-free. Aims To evaluate the incidence of early and delayed polypectomy complications and factors associated with their occurrence in a community setting. Methods Web-database collection of patients’ and polyp's features in consecutive colonic polypectomies during a 3-month period in 18 endoscopy centres. Results Data on 5178 polypectomies in 2692 pat...

Background/Aims Among the many complications that can occur following therapeutic endoscopy, bleeding is the most serious, which occurs in 1.0-6.1% of all colonoscopic polypectomies. The aim of this study was to identify risk factors of delayed post-polypectomy bleeding (PPB).

Background and study aims: The English National Health Service Bowel Cancer Screening Programme (NHSBCSP) is one of the world’s largest organized screening programs. Minimizing adverse events is essential for any screening program. Study aims were to determine rates and to examine risk factors for adverse events. Patients and methods: Bleeding and perforations in NHSBCSP colonoscopies between August 2006 and January 2012 were examined. Logistic regression was used to examine risk factors for adv...

Background In randomized trials, fecal occult-blood testing reduces mortality from colorectal cancer. However, the duration of the benefit is unknown, as are the effects specific to age and sex. Methods In the Minnesota Colon Cancer Control Study, 46,551 participants, 50 to 80 years of age, were randomly assigned to usual care (control) or to annual or biennial screening with fecal occult-blood testing. Screening was performed from 1976 through 1982 and from 1986 through 1992. We used the Nation...

Objectives Colonoscopy is considered a safe examination, serious complications being uncommon. Our study aimed to assess the adverse events of colonoscopy in a colorectal cancer screening programme with faecal immunochemical test (FIT) and to compare them with those of a previous programme with guaiac-based faecal occult blood test (gFOBT). Design Retrospective observational study Setting Population-based community-based colorectal cancer screening programme organised in Alsace, part of the nati...

Abstract Introduction Colorectal cancer (CRC) screening generally starts screening by the age of 50 based on guidelines. Lately however, a U.S. guideline recommended to start CRC screening from age 45 and, very recently, two studies were published that addressed young-onset in Europe (in part) (Vuik et al., 2019; Araghi et al., 2019). Materials and Methods Flemish CRC incidence and mortality data contextualise trend results for age groups under 50 and what the implications could be for practice....
