Study reports adenoma detection rates are higher than current guidelines suggest in both men and women
Date:4/11/2013

OAK BROOK, Ill. April 11, 2013 Researchers at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, report in a new study that average-risk screening adenoma detection rates (ADR) are significantly higher than current guidelines suggest for both men and women. The study found that the overall average-risk screening ADR was 33.7 percent for both genders combined. Women had a 25.4 percent risk in the study versus a 15 percent risk noted in guidelines; men had a 41.2 percent risk in the study versus a 25 percent risk noted in guidelines. Overall advanced-pathology adenoma detection was 12.2 percent for both genders combined. There was a significantly higher advanced-pathology ADR for men (15.3 percent) versus women (8.7 percent). The study appears in the April issue of GIE: Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, the monthly peer-reviewed scientific journal of the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE).

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common new cancer diagnosis and cause of cancer-related death for both men and women. Although the incidence of CRC is notably higher in men, both genders have a five percent lifetime risk of developing CRC. Adenomatous polyps (growths in the colon also called adenomas) are well-recognized as precursors of CRC, and their detection and removal during colonoscopy has proven to reduce the incidence of CRC. Recent advances in imaging capability and inspection technique have resulted in overall ADRs that are much higher than current multiple medical society guidelines recommend. Current guidelines suggest screening adenoma detection rates of 15 percent for average-risk women and 25 percent for average-risk men.

"The aim of our study was to determine gender-specific average-risk screening adenoma detection rates and the prevalence of adenomas by location, size, shape, and degree of dysplasia in each gender from our prospective study on adenoma detection. Recent data in abstract form report ADRs for women exceedi
