A proposed staging system and stage-specific interventions for familial adenomatous polyposis
Adenomatous Polyposis Coli
Neoplasms, Multiple Primary
Severity of Illness Index
The proposed FAP colon polyposis staging system and stage-specific intervention are based on a high degree of agreement on the part of experts in the review of individual cases of polyposis. Therefore, reliable and clinically relevant means for measuring trial outcomes can be developed. Outlier cases showing wide scatter in stage assignment call for individualized attention and may be inappropriate for enrollment in clinical trials for this reason.
