Detection of Premalignant Colon Polyps Stable Throughout Workday Under Certain Conditions

Despite recent studies suggesting colorectal polyp detection declines as the workday progresses, researchers found premalignant polyp, adenomatous polyp and hyperplastic polyp detection rates could remain stable throughout the day under certain work conditions, according to a study published in Gastrointestinal Endoscopy.

For this study, researchers assessed the detection rate of all premalignant polyps, adenomatous polyps and sessile serrated polyps for 2,439 patients undergoing routine colonoscopy. Results showed detection rates did not vary significantly and remained stabled when physicians used split-dose bowel preparation and/or moderated daily procedure loads.
