Recruitment status was: Recruiting
|Adenoma Colon Polyps Colon Cancer||Device: Cap - Transparent retractable extension device. Device: Standard|
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Participant)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
|Official Title:||Prospective Randomized Controlled Study of Cap Assisted Colonoscopy for the Detection of Colon Polyps|
- The primary outcome is the prevalence of adenomas in the two groups. [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
- The secondary outcomes are the number of adenomas detected per subject, cecal intubation rate, insertion times, withdrawal times and complication rates in the two arms. [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
|Study Start Date:||September 2009|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||November 2010|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||October 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
|Active Comparator: Cap arm||
Device: Cap - Transparent retractable extension device.
Attaching a Cap - Transparent retractable extension device.
Other Name: Cap Assisted Colonoscopy
|Active Comparator: Standard arm||
Without attaching a transparent cap to the tip of colonoscope.
Other Name: Standard Colonoscopy
The investigators hypothesize that adenoma detection rate will be higher using cap assisted colonoscopy compared to standard colonoscopy. Also, cap assisted colonoscopy will be safe and cecal intubation rate will be similar compared to standard colonoscopy.
Specific Aim 1 - To compare the prevalence of adenomas detected by standard colonoscopy and cap assisted colonoscopy.
Specific Aim 2 - To compare the number of adenomas detected per subject by standard colonoscopy and cap assisted colonoscopy.
Specific aim 3 - To compare the cecal intubation rate, insertion time, withdrawal time and complications of standard colonoscopy and cap assisted colonoscopy.
