Upper GI tract endoscopic surveillance strategy for FAP

What is the upper GI tract endoscopic surveillance strategy for patients with FAP? 

Individuals with FAP should undergo endoscopic surveillance for duodenal adenomas with examinations beginning around the time the patient is being considered for colectomy or early in the third decade of life. The upper endoscopy needs to be performed with both end-viewing and side-viewing endoscopes. If no adenomas are found, then the examination should be repeated in 5 years.
