A prototype blood-based screening test evaluated by Cleveland Clinic researchers and others can accurately detect and localize multiple types of cancer, often before symptoms show. The promising results raise hopes that the assay will help achieve the long-sought goal of population-scale early detection of cancer.
The increased numbers of small, precancerous non-advanced adenomas that are detected with high-definition colonoscopes do not appear to pose a heightened risk of metachronous advanced neoplasia, Cleveland Clinic researchers have determined, raising the prospect of a longer colonoscopy surveillance interval for these patients.
By following appropriate guidelines, endoscopists can achieve high-quality screening colonoscopies no matter whether their specialty is gastroenterology or colorectal surgery, Cleveland Clinic research shows. Regular evaluation is important to improve outcomes.
A case report with unique intraoperative endoscopic images details the endoscopic removal of more than 65 polyps from the small intestine of a patient with Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome.
