7. Relation between Medicare screening reimbursement and stage at diagnosis for older patients with colon cancer.

Relation between Medicare screening reimbursement and stage at diagnosis for older patients with colon cancer. CONTEXT: Medicare's reimbursement policy was changed in 1998 to provide coverage for screening colonoscopies for patients with increased colon cancer risk, and expanded further in 2001 to cover screening colonoscopies for all individuals. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether the Medicare reimbursement policy changes were associated with an increase in either colonoscopy use or early stage (...) : Expansion of Medicare reimbursement to cover colon cancer screening was associated with an increased use of colonoscopy for Medicare beneficiaries, and for those who were diagnosed with colon cancer, an increased probability of being diagnosed at an early stage. The selective effect of the coverage change on proximal colon lesions suggests that increased use of whole-colon screening modalities such as colonoscopy may have played a pivotal role.

9. Narrative review: screening for colorectal cancer in patients with a first-degree relative with colonic neoplasia.

Narrative review: screening for colorectal cancer in patients with a first-degree relative with colonic neoplasia. Many patients and providers are aware that colorectal cancer (CRC) "runs in families." A patient with 1 first-degree relative with CRC has approximately twice the personal risk for CRC as a similar person without this family history. Colorectal cancer is the third most common type of cancer in the United States. When providers neglect to collect information on family history (...) , they may fail to appropriately tailor recommendations for screening for CRC for many patients. This review considers the existing data and summarizes an evidence-based approach to the common clinical problem of how and when to implement screening for CRC in a patient with a family history of colonic neoplasia. The authors discuss the varying risks for CRC given the patient's age, health habits, and personal and family histories. In the context of a clinical case that focuses on the effect of a single

11. Using risk for advanced proximal colonic neoplasia to tailor endoscopic screening for colorectal cancer.

Using risk for advanced proximal colonic neoplasia to tailor endoscopic screening for colorectal cancer. BACKGROUND: Colonoscopic screening for colorectal cancer has been suggested because sigmoidoscopy misses nearly half of persons with advanced proximal neoplasia. OBJECTIVE: To create a clinical index to stratify risk for advanced proximal neoplasia and to identify a subgroup with very low risk in which screening sigmoidoscopy alone might suffice. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. SETTING (...) : A company-based program of screening colonoscopy for colorectal cancer. PATIENTS: Consecutive persons 50 years of age or older undergoing first-time screening colonoscopy between September 1995 and June 2001. MEASUREMENTS: A clinical index with 3 variables was created from information on the first 1994 persons. Points were assigned to categories of age, sex, and distal findings. Risk for advanced proximal neoplasia (defined as an adenoma 1 cm or larger or one with villous histology, severe dysplasia

13. One-time screening for colorectal cancer with combined fecal occult-blood testing and examination of the distal colon.

One-time screening for colorectal cancer with combined fecal occult-blood testing and examination of the distal colon. BACKGROUND: Fecal occult-blood testing and sigmoidoscopy have been recommended for screening for colorectal cancer, but the sensitivity of such combined testing for detecting neoplasia is uncertain. At 13 Veterans Affairs medical centers, we performed colonoscopy to determine the prevalence of neoplasia and the sensitivity of one-time screening with a fecal occult-blood test (...) plus sigmoidoscopy. METHODS: Asymptomatic subjects (age range, 50 to 75 years) provided stool specimens on cards from three consecutive days for fecal occult-blood testing, which were rehydrated for interpretation. They then underwent colonoscopy. Sigmoidoscopy was defined in this study as examination of the rectum and sigmoid colon during colonoscopy, and sensitivity was estimated by determining how many patients with advanced neoplasia had an adenoma in the rectum or sigmoid colon.
