The Utility of Cap Colonoscopy in Increasing Adenoma Detection Rate


This is a prospective, randomized trial comparing the adenoma detection rate between
Hispanic patients undergoing a screening colonoscopy with a conventional colonoscope or with
a cap-assisted colonoscopy. The aims of the study are:

1. Compare ADR between Hispanic patients undergoing a screening colonoscopy with and
without cap.

2. Compare the overall polyp detection rate between Hispanic patients undergoing a
screening colonoscopy with and without cap.

3. Compare the cecal intubation rate and cecal intubation time between standard
colonoscopy and cap assisted colonoscopy.

4. Compare the complication rate between standard colonoscopy and cap assisted
colonoscopy.


Inclusion Criteria:



- Adult Hispanic patients (18-80) who are undergoing colonoscopy for screening or
surveillance purposes.

Exclusion Criteria:

1. Patients younger than 18 yrs old or older than 80 yrs.

2. Patients with a prior history of colonic surgeries

3. Patient with Crohns colitis or ulcerative colitis.

5. Patient with poor bowel preparation
