Proximal serrated polyp detection may reduce incidence of post-colonoscopy CRC

Improving proximal serrated polyp detection rate, along with adenoma detection rate, may increase colonoscopy effectiveness and reduce incidence of interval post-procedure colorectal cancer, according to new research.“Serrated polyps progress to colorectal cancer via the serrated neoplasia pathway, and account for around 15% to 30% of sporadic colorectal cancers. … Because of their indistinct color, vague borders and flat or sessile shape, the endoscopic detection and resection of serrated polyps is challenging,” David E. F. W. M. Van Toledo, MD, of the department ofRead More
