  1. Flexible sigmoidoscopy screening in an industrial setting.

    Article - En anglais

    Little is known about the yield of colorectal cancer screening programs in an industrial setting.

    We therefore established a flexible sigmoidoscopy screening program at a chemical manufacturing plant and offered testing to all employees over the age of 40.

    After a Fleets enema preparation had been administered, a digital rectal examination and sigmoidoscopy were performed on each volunteer worker in the medical office of the plant.

    The plant had an average census of about 650 workers; 202 were screened during a 2-yr period.
