RIGHT SIDED COLON POLYP MISS RATE: IMPACT OF RETROFLEXION IN THE RIGHT COLON
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Subject), Primary Purpose: Screening
Per patient adenoma detection rate (average # adenomas detected/ patient in each arm of the study).
The primary objective of our study is to determine whether the diagnostic yield for pre-malignant polyps is increased by retroflexion of the colonoscope during withdrawal from the proximal colon when compared to the diagnostic yield of a second examination of the proximal colon with the colonoscope in forward view.
