Article
The European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) presents a short list of performance measures for colonoscopy in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients. Current performance measures for colonoscopy mainly focus on detecting (pre)malignant lesions. However, these performance measures are not relevant for all colonoscopy indications in I...
Article
Climate change and the destruction of ecosystems by human activities are among the greatest challenges of the 21st century and require urgent action. Health care activities significantly contribute to the emission of greenhouse gases and waste production, with gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy being one of the largest contributors. This Position Stat...
Article
Background Artificial intelligence (AI) tools increase detection of precancerous polyps during colonoscopy and might contribute to long-term colorectal cancer prevention. The aim of the study was to investigate the incremental effect of the implementation of AI detection tools in screening colonoscopy on colorectal cancer incidence and mortality, a...
Article
Background & Aims The proportion of colonoscopies with at least one adenoma (adenoma detection rate, ADR) is inversely associated with colorectal cancer (CRC) risk and death. The aim of this study was to examine such associations exist for colonoscopy quality measures other than the ADR. Methods We used data from the Polish Colorectal Cancer Scree...

Background and study aims Fujifilm has developed a novel ELUXEO 7000 endoscope system that employs light-emitting diodes (LEDs) at four different wavelengths as light sources that enable blue light imaging (BLI), linked color imaging (LCI), and high-definition white-light endoscopy (HD-WLE). The aim of this study was to address the diagnostic accur...
Article
Background and study aims: Endoscopic screening with polypectomy reduces colorectal cancer (CRC) incidence. Incomplete polyp removal may attenuate the effect of screening. This randomized trial compared cold snare polypectomy (CSP) with hot snare polypectomy (HSP) regarding complete polyp resection. Patients and methods: We included patients ≥ 4...
Article
Background and aims: A high rate of neoplasia (high grade dysplasia; HGD and esophageal adenocarcinoma; EAC) has been reported in Barrett's Esophagus at index endoscopy but precise rates of post endoscopy Barrett's neoplasia (PEBN) are unknown. Methods: Systematic review and meta-analysis was performed examining electronic databases (inception t...

Most colorectal cancers (CRC) assumedly develop from precursor lesions, i.e., colorectal adenomas (adenoma-carcinoma sequence). Epidemiological and clinical data supporting this hypothesis are limited. Therefore, the aim of the present study is to estimate relative dynamics of colorectal adenoma-carcinoma sequence for groups of screenees stratified...
Article
Background: A significant proportion of upper gastrointestinal cancers (UGICs) remain undetected during esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD). We investigated the characteristics and risk factors of UGICs missed during endoscopy. Methods: In this nationwide registry-based study, we analyzed two large Polish datasets (National Health Fund and National...
Article
In the era of populational screening programs for colorectal cancer, evaluation of their quality and efficacy becomes an important issue. One of the main criteria taken into account when assessing the quality of a screening program is related to the risk of colorectal cancer developing in the period between the screening colonoscopy and the control...

Full-text available
Risk factors of cervical cancer (CC) development are well investigated, however, those influencing the risk of a potential false negative cytology preceding diagnosis of an invasive CC are not. We have aimed to explore these factors according to the data from Organised Cervical Cancer Screening Programme (OCCSP) in Poland. A total of 2.36 million o...

Article
Background & Aims The risk of metachronous colorectal cancer (CRC) among patients with no adenomas, low-risk adenomas (LRAs), or high-risk adenomas (HRAs), detected at index colonoscopy, is unclear.

Full-text available
Introduction: Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a serious health problem, and various screening programs to reduce CRC have been introduced worldwide. However, the cost-effectiveness of a program based on once-in-a-lifetime colonoscopy in Poland is unknown. Objectives: The main aim of this study was to assess the cost-effectiveness of Polish Colonoscop...
Article
Background There is a lack of clinical studies to establish indications and methodology for tattooing, therefore technique and practice of tattooing is very variable. We aimed to establish a consensus on indications and appropriate techniques for colonic tattoo through a modified Delphi Process. Methods The baseline questionnaire was classified in...

Background: Peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) is an emerging technique in the treatment of Zenker's diverticulum (ZD). This study aimed to analyze the feasibility of Zenker's POEM (Z-POEM) in a multicenter setting and assess its performance using a validated Kothari-Haber Scoring System newly developed for symptom measurement in ZD. Materials and...
Article
We have aimed to study reasons for reporting false-negative cytology results preceding diagnosis of interval cervical cancers (CC) in Poland. Data on all Pap smears collected in the organised screening in 2010-2015 were retrieved from the electronic database and linked with Polish National Cancer Registry (PNCR) data. False-negative results were d...
Article
Background: To date no scale has been validated to assess bubbles impairing bowel preparation. The use of different descriptions in randomized trials limit clinical interpretation. Therefore, our goal was to develop and determine reliability of a novel scale - the Colon Endoscopic Bubble Scale - CEBuS. Methods: Multicentre prospective observatio...

The clinical manifestations of COVID-19 can be subtle, encompassing a broad spectrum from asymptomatic mild disease to s...
Article
Main Recommendations 1 ESGE suggests that high definition endoscopy, and dye or virtual chromoendoscopy, as well as add-on devices, can be used in average risk patients to increase the endoscopist’s adenoma detection rate. However, their routine use must be balanced against costs and practical considerations. Weak recommendation, high quality evide...
Article
Background & aims: Efficacy of bowel preparation is an important determinant of outcomes of colonoscopy. It is not clear whether approved low-volume polyethylene glycol (PEG) and non-PEG regimens are as effective as high-volume PEG regimens when taken in a split dose. Methods: In a systematic review of multiple electronic databases through Janua...
Article
Main Recommendations ESGE recommends that individuals with Lynch syndrome should be followed in dedicated units that practice monitoring of compliance and endoscopic performance measures.

In Poland, cervical cancer incidence and mortality still remain considerably higher than in Western European countries or North America. Recent data indicate decreasing trends in women younger than 60 years and stable trends in older women. In this article, we identified obstacles in primary and secondary prevention of cervical cancer in Poland. We...
Article

Weak recommendation, moderate...
Article
Background and aims: The diagnosis of gastric premalignant conditions (GPCs) relies on endoscopy with mucosal sampling. We hypothesized that the endoscopist biopsy rate (EBR) might constitute a quality indicator for EGD, and we have analyzed its association with GPC detection and the rate of missed gastric cancers (GCs). Methods: We analyzed EGD...

Objective The incidence of colorectal cancer (CRC) declines among subjects aged 50 years and above. An opposite trend appears among younger adults. In Europe, data on CRC incidence among younger adults are lacking. We therefore aimed to analyse European trends in CRC incidence and mortality in subjects younger than 50 years. Design Data on age-rel...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: With advances in endoscopic imaging, it is possible to differentiate adenomatous from hyperplastic diminutive (1-5 mm) polyps during endoscopy. With the optical Resect-and-Discard strategy, these polyps are then removed and discarded without histopathology assessment. However, failure to recognize adenomas (vs hyperplastic polyp...
