Patient and procedure characteristics of patients with conventional adenomas and sessile serrated lesions in a general colonoscopy population

Research output: Contribution to journalAbstract/Meeting Abstractpeer-review

Abstract

Conventional adenomas (CAs; tubular, tubulovillous, and villous adenomas) and sessile serrated lesions (SSLs) are the precursors of most colorectal cancers (CRCs). Colonoscopy is the gold‐standard test for detection of polyps and CRCs, but combinations of non‐invasive screening using fecal occult blood testing, age, sex, symptoms, hematological indices, and family history of CRC are also used to predict those at risk. There is a gap in knowledge about the prevalence, natural history, risk factors, and screening for SSLs. We thus aimed to describe patient and procedure characteristics of patients with CAs and SSLs in a general colonoscopy population.
