New Study Shows ColoWrap Increases Adenoma, SSP Detection

Posted by Larissa Biggers on November 09, 2018

A recently published study in Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology Research found that use of ColoWrap significantly enhanced adenoma detection in obese patients, females, and patients 60 and older. In addition, ColoWrap was associated with increased polyp and sessile serrated polyp (SSP) detection in the cecum and ascending colon across all patients in the study. These findings provide substantial additional support for the utility of ColoWrap as a tool to improve colonoscopy quality, particularly for patients at-risk for a difficult colonoscopy due to a tortuous, redundant colon or body habitus.

SSA Detection: The Key to Preventing CRC?

Posted by Marybeth Spanarkel on August 17, 2018

 

Observational studies indicate that colonoscopy lowers colorectal cancer (CRC) rates and mortality in the general population. In support of these findings, a large-case control study showed that the procedure can significantly reduce the incidence of CRC and CRC-related mortality. However, colonoscopy may not be optimally effective for right-sided lesions. This might be due, in large part, to sessile serrated adenomas (SSAs).
