Sažetak
[BACKGROUND/AIMS]: In Croatia, colorectal Cancer (CRC) was the second leading cause of cancer mortality in men and women respectivelly (nm=1164, 49.77/100000 ; nw=845, 34.89/100000). The National Colorectal Cancer Screening Program was established by the Ministry of Health, and started at September 2007. [METHODS]: The fecal occult blood test (FOBT) was performed by guaiac Hemognost card-test. The test and short questionnaire were delivered to the home addresses of all citizens aged 50-74 years consecutively during a 5-year period. Each participant was required to fulfill the questionnaire and to send it together with the stool specimen on 3 test cards to the county public health institute for further reading. All positive persons had to be invited to colonoscopy within 6-8 weeks. A descriptive analysis was performed. [RESULT]: A total of 1425494 individuals (born between 1933 and 1957 -100% of eligible) were invited to screening by the end of March 2013. In total, 288347 (20.3%) persons returned the envelope with a completed questionnaire, and 247362 of them returned it with a correctly placed stool specimen on FOBT cards. Until now 15517 (6.3%), FOBT positive patients have been found. Colonoscopy was performed in 10428 cases (67%), and identified colorectal cancers in 564 patients (5.41% of colonoscopied, 3.7% of FOBT‐positive, and 0.23% of all screened individuals). Polyps were found and removed in 4107 (39, 38%) of colonoscopied patients.In only 800 (7, 7&) colonoscopied patients colon findings were normal. [CONCLUSION]: First cycle implementation characteristics are: relatively low FOBT compliance, higher number of FOBT‐positive persons but still in the range for population‐based programs, and higher number of pathologic findings (polyps and cancers). These results suggest a need for intervention strategies which include organizational changes and educational activities to improve awareness of CRC screening usefulness and increase participation rates.
