Frederikke Schønfeldt Troelsen et al. Risk of a post-colonoscopy colorectal cancer diagnosis in patients with inflammatory bowel disease: a population-based cohort study

The authors of this population-based cohort study looking at 34 688 inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients who underwent colonoscopy concluded that the high 3-year post-colonoscopy colorectal cancer rates in patients with IBD may, among other factors, be related to an increased colonoscopy frequency in these patients.
