In 697 patients (92 were <50 years of age) followed after colorectal cancer (CRC) resection, the rate of advanced neoplasia at surveillance was similar in those <50 years (7.6%) versus those over 50 years (9.8%). In a multivariate analysis, predictors of advanced neoplasia at surveillance included synchronous advanced neoplasia at the time of the original CRC diagnosis, but not age.
