ABSTRACTThe colorectal cancer is the third neoplasic in the world. In our country, the mortality by colorectal cancer is as same as in development countries. At the moment when the cancer is detected, follow up it is to important to determine local relapse, metastasis, premalign lesions and metachronic tumours. For these reasons the endoscopic studies are necessary to follow up after surgery for colorectal cancer, and their valuation. That was the reason to perform a prospective study of intensive follow up in colorectal cancer surgery patients since may 2001 to may 2004. This study showed that the most common lesions were metachronous polypus (21 cases, 20.3%) and metachronous neoplasics (9 cases, 8.7%). We conclude that endoscopic follow up after surgery for colorectal cancer is useful in these patients to adequate valuation, early treatment of relapse and metachronous lesions.
