Disagreement between high confidence endoscopic adenoma prediction and histopathological diagnosis in colonic lesions ≤3 mm in size (FREE ACCESS)

Prasanna Ponugoti, Amit Rastogi, Tonya Kaltenbach et al.

Diminutive colorectal polyps removed during colonoscopy are sometimes histologically interpreted as normal tissue despite high confidence that an adenoma was removed. Among 644 consecutive lesions ≤3mm in size that were considered to be high confidence adenomas by experienced colonoscopists, 15% were reported as normal mucosa on histopathology. This finding challenges the role of pathology as the gold standard for future patient management.

Impact of endoscopy system, high definition, and virtual chromoendoscopy in daily routine colonoscopy: a randomized trial (FREE ACCESS)

Philip Roelandt, Ingrid Demedts, Hilde Willekens et al.

This comparison between conventional white light colonoscopy, virtual chromoendoscopy, and high definition versions, using each of the three major endoscopy systems, found no differences in the rates of adenoma detection or adenoma per colonoscopy in 1855 individuals. However, high definition conventional colonoscopy was associated with higher detection rates of serrated adenomas and adenocarcinomas.
