    Oral 8 Impact of Retroflexion Versus Second Forward View Examination of the Right Colon on Adenoma Detection: A Multicenter Randomized Controlled Trial

    Author insight from Vladimir Kushnir MD, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO

    What’s new here and important for clinicians?
    Retroflexion of the endoscope in the right colon can be accomplished safely in the vast majority of patients. Examining the right colon a second time, ether in the standard manner or in retroflexion helps to identify additional adenomas.  A second examination of the right colon should be strongly considered in patients who have polyps found on the initial withdrawal.

    What do patients need to know?
    When your doctor performs a routine colonoscopy, careful inspection of the colon makes it more likely that they will find precancerous polyps.
