In colorectal cancer screening era a huge burden of medical resources has been applied to
surveillance. Although the adherence to post-polipectomy recommendations is a advocated as a
mainstay for quality assurance colonoscopy programs, prospective data on appropriateness of
surveillance are lacking.
The aim of present study was to evaluate the percentage of subjects in which timing of
surveillance colonoscopy in practice agrees with that recommended by guidelines and to
identify factors associated to the appropriateness of surveillance.
