    Irina Gessl et al. Surveillance colonoscopy in Austria: Are we following the guidelines?

    Current guidelines for colorectal cancer screening contain postpolypectomy surveillance recommendations. The authors assessed the adherence of Austrian endoscopists to the guidelines, and whether a single reminder letter could improve adherence to guideline recommendations. They found poor baseline adherence to the guidelines and conclude that a single reminder letter is not enough to improve poor adherence.
