Özet

Introduction Obesity and metabolic syndrome (MetS) are associated with colorectal neoplasia (CRN) and carcinoma (CRC). Whether such subjects must undergo screening colonoscopy (SC) earlier, is unknown. Incidences of CRNs in 40-49-versus 50-65-year-old bariatric patients were compared by SC. No prospective data on SC is available in morbidly obese/MetS.
