TRUJILLO-BENAVIDES, Omar et al. Clinical guidelines in quality in colonoscopy and polypectomy. Endoscopia [online]. 2021, vol.33, n.2, pp.54-74.  Epub 28-Feb-2022. ISSN 2444-6483.

Colonoscopy is the method of choice for diagnosis, and treatment of most colon diseases, being possibly the most effective tool in the prevention and timely detection of colorectal cancer (CRC), influencing its incidence and mortality. Efficacy and diagnostic and therapeutic quality depend on the ability of the endoscopist, percentage of colonic mucosa examined, the examination time, complications, among others. In such a way that even though there are indicators applicable to all colonoscopy, there are other specific ones for each indication. The Mexican Association of Gastroenterology (AMG) and the Mexican Association of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and Professional College AC (AMEG) held a face-to-face meeting in June 2019, which was attended by gastroenterologists and endoscopists to review and evaluate the current evidence on the quality of CRC screening colonoscopy and develop recommendations that favor the performance of a high-quality colonoscopy.
