The purposes of this study were to assess the prevalence of colonic lesions detected at barium enema in a community practice, to compare the findings at barium enema between patients who are asymptomatic and have no known risk factors for colorectal cancer (screening group) and patients who have symptoms of colonic disease or have known risk factors, and to determine if a questionnaire about symptoms and risk factors is an appropriate screening tool.
SUBJECTS AND METHODS
A self-administered questionnaire about colorectal symptoms and risk factors was given to 1779 patients scheduled for barium enema examination.
On the basis of their responses, patients were divided into three groups : screening group (asymptomatic, without risk factors), symptomatic, and asymptomatic with risk factors.
Each patient underwent a fluoroscopic barium enema.
We then compared the results (number, histologic type, size of lesion (s), location in the colon, and patient's age) and risk factors among the three groups.
At least one lesion within the colorectum was found in 166 (9%) of 1779 patients at combined proctosigmoidoscopy and barium enema. (...)
