1. Positive fecal immunochemical test (FIT) results were associated with increased incidences of ischemic stroke, myocardial infarction, and all-cause mortality. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) While fecal immunochemical tests (FIT) is a commonly used and effective screening tool for colorectal cancer (CRC), their clinical use in detecting other diseases is poorly known....
1. In this microsimulation model of U.S. patients aged 50-79, high-intensity surveillance following colorectal adenoma provided clinically significant benefits over low-intensity surveillance at acceptable cost. 2. In nearly all evaluated alternative scenarios, the absolute cost-effectiveness of high-intensity surveillance remained under $100,000 per quality-adjusted life-year (QALY) gained. Compared with low-intensity surveillance,...
