Early detection and removal of adenomatous polyps can prevent the development of colorectal cancer. However, it is fairly common-up to 20%-for polyps to be undetected in a colonoscopy due to poor visualization of the proximal aspect of colonic folds and anatomical flexures. To overcome these limitations, many new endoscopes and accessories have been developed.

Conclusion:

a colonoscopy with Endocuff, EndoRings, and G-eye have showed significantly lower adenoma miss rates.
