The utilization and complication rates of outpatient colonoscopy performed at ambulatory surgical centers versus hospitals 1992-2007 (Abstract #678)

Ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs), which are steadily increasing around the country, provide safe alternatives to hospitals for performing screening colonoscopies, according to new research from Emory University. While some studies have shown that ASCs are more efficient and may be associated with lower costs, no previous study evaluated the safety of outpatient colonoscopies at ASCs in comparison to hospitals. When researchers

evaluated the safety of the procedures in both settings and looked only at the complications without adjusting other factors, they found that the ambulatory surgical centers were safer. However, when they took into account the other factors mentioned previously, they found that the risk of complication between both settings was comparable.

Dr. Azrak will present these data on Monday, May 9 at 8:30 a.m. CT in S104, McCormick Place.

The presence of anesthesiology professional services during colonoscopy is associated with increased adenoma detection rates and decreased incidence of colorectal cancer: a medical outcomes registry analysis (Abstract #1094)

Could having an anesthesiologist during colonoscopy improve results? In a recent study, researchers examined the effectiveness of colonoscopy when sedation was administered by an anesthesia professional versus other provider by comparing the differences between polyp detection rates (PDR) and the detection of colorectal cancer (CRC) within three years of colonoscopy. The study is the first to examine the clinical outcomes of PDR and CRC incidence in relation to anesthesiology services during colonoscopy. While the findings were statistically significant in favor of anesthesiologist provided sedation
