Endoscopic surveillance guidelines for sporadic duodenal adenomas

What are the endoscopic surveillance guidelines for sporadic duodenal adenomas? 

Sporadic duodenal adenomas are usually removed completely with endoscopic techniques, and surveillance endoscopy is usually performed to ensure complete tissue removal and to assess for recurrence. Currently, there is no established surveillance interval for patients with sporadic duodenal adenomas. Patients discovered to have advanced (stage IV) duodenal polyposis require surgical consultation for possible resection. All patients found to have duodenal adenomas should be offered colonoscopy because they are at increased risk for colorectal polyps.
