Four screening endoscopists evaluated the new ENDOCUFF VISION® in a local Bowel Cancer Screening Program. Before the introduction of ENDOCUFF VISION® the cumulative Caecal intubation rate was 96.27% and adenoma detection rate (ADR) 48.71%. On the 30 occasions that ENDOCUFF VISION® has been used similar CIR rates were achieved but cumulative ADR increased to 65.5%. In this small pilot study, use of ENDOCUFF VISION® appeared to increase ADR by a difference of 17%, which is 35% more effective. There were no complications from the use of the cuff although it was electively removed in 3 cases with severe sigmoid colon diverticulosis.
Conclusion Further randomised evaluation of this simple novel device is warranted.
The Endocuff is feasible, safe, reliable and easy to handle and might have potential to reduce the incidence of colorectal cancer

My colleagues and I have definitely found polyps that they didn’t see with the forward view. We feel we were doing an excellent exam with current colonoscopy and that this made it better.
