Jen-Hao Yeh et al. Prevalence and predictive factors of colorectal sessile serrated lesions in younger individuals

The prevalences of sessile serrated lesions (SSLs) and clinically significant serrated polyps (CSSPs) were retrospectively studied in patients aged <50 versus ≥50 years. In patients aged <50 years (n = 4712 [47.8%]), significantly lower prevalences of adenomas (22.6% vs. 46.2%) and right-sided adenomas (11.2% vs. 27.2%) were detected, while the SSL and CSSP rates were similar (7.2% vs. 6.5%; 10.3% vs. 10.3%, respectively). Awareness that SSLs are not uncommon in younger individuals may increase SSL and CSSP detection.
