New research identifies more effective tools for detection of colorectal cancer
Date:6/1/2009

CHICAGO, IL (June 1, 2009) The latest advances in polyp detection, assessment of colorectal cancer risk, and patient sedation during colonoscopy will be presented today at Digestive Disease Week 2009 (DDW). Research regarding the size and type of polyps detected during colonoscopy and the risk associated with developing colon cancer offers new insight into the recommended frequency of follow-up preventive colonoscopy. New research also examines the risk of perforation during colonoscopy and new tools allowing physicians to more closely examine polyps during colonoscopy including optical biopsy and deep sedation of the patient will be presented. DDW is the largest international gathering of physicians and researchers in the fields of gastroenterology, hepatology, endoscopy and gastrointestinal surgery.

"Advances in technology and our ability to assess polyps during colonoscopy are the key to early detection of colorectal cancer. Perfecting the frequency of colonoscopy and identification of potentially cancerous polyps are the latest in our arsenal in the fight against this cancer," said Kenneth K. Wang, MD, AGAF, FASGE, Mayo Clinic, Rochester.

More Large Polyps Are Seen on Screening Colonoscopy with Deep Sedation Compared with Moderate Conscious Sedation (Abstract #722)

Deep sedation (DS) during colonoscopy may result in greater detection of polyps, which could save more lives by alerting doctors and patients to colon cancer at its earliest, most treatable stages.

Investigators sought to discover whether patients who are more fully sedated during colonoscopy are more likely to have polyps detected because the patient is more relaxed and the physician can focus completely on polyp detection. Patients who are deeply sedated are not awake, whereas patients under moderate conscious sedation (MCS) are able to hear and respond to directions during the procedure.
