Dynamic Position Change in Colonic Adenoma Detection
Dynamic Position Change in Colonic Adenoma Detection: a Prospective, Randomized, Multicenter Study
There was an only single operator study reporting dynamic position change during colonoscopy withdrawal significantly improved polyp and adenoma detection. So we designed a prospective, randomized multicenter study to verify the effect of dynamic position change in colonic adenoma detection. We think position change improve luminal distension and has the potential to improve adenoma detection rate.

Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
  • Position
  • Colonoscopy
  • Adenoma
  • Procedure: Position change
    Patients change position (cecum to hepatic flexure, left lateral; transverse colon, supine; splenic flexure and descending colon , right lateral) during colonoscopy withdrawal.
  • Procedure: Left lateral
    In left lateral position group patients are positioned left lateral decubitus during colonoscopy withdrawal.
  • Experimental: Position change
    Position change group
    Intervention: Procedure: Position change
  • Active Comparator: Left lateral
    Left lateral position
    Intervention: Procedure: Left lateral
