EFFECT OF A TRACKING PROGRAM ON COLON ADENOMA SURVEILLANCE AND ADHERENCE TO GUIDELINE RECOMMENDATIONS

timing of completion of repeat colonoscopies pre and post establishment of a polyp registry
(tracking system) in 2007. Each group will be composed of 250 subjects consecutively
identified from all the patients who underwent colonoscopy and were found to have a tubular
adenoma (Group 1-2004 to 2007, Group 2 2007-2010).
