SLIDE 12 NOTES: We conclude that somewhere between 55 and 64 percent of Medicare beneficiaries who undergo a polypectomy have at least one subsequent colonoscopy in the 5 year surveillance window.
Diagnostic and therapeutic follow-up following a sigmoidoscopy is frequent, and a large majority of those how underwent polypectomy within six months of the sigmoidoscopy had their polyps removed in subsequent procedures.
