Colonoscopy is widely performed for the diagnosis and treatment of various colonic disorders and the screening and surveillance of colorectal neoplasia. According to research evidence, up to one-third of patients had at least 1 minor and transient gastrointestinal symptom after colonoscopy. Although severe complications developed uncommonly, they are potentially serious and life threatening. Here, we present the case of a 95-year-old man with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease who developed bilateral tension pneumothorax during therapeutic colonoscopy for sigmoid volvulus...

INTRODUCTION: Administering sedation is an established standard in gastrointestinal endoscopy, particularly in situations in which sedation is used to make the examination more comfortable for the patient (e. g., during preventive check-up examinations). It is important to have precise information about the risk of sedation-associated complications. AIMS AND METHODS: The aim of this study was to record the incidence and type of sedation-associated complications in a low-risk group of patients (ASA 1 or 2) undergoing elective diagnostic esophagogastroduodenoscopy or colonoscopy...

OBJECTIVES: Appropriate monitoring during sedation has been recognized as vital to patient safety in procedures outside of the operating room. Capnography can identify hypoventilation prior to hypoxemia; however, it is not clear whether the addition of capnography improves safety or is cost effective during routine colonoscopy, a high volume, low-risk procedure. Our aim was to evaluate the value of EtCO2 monitoring during colonoscopy with moderate sedation. METHODS: We conducted a prospective study of sedation safety and patient satisfaction before and after the introduction of EtCO2 monitoring during outpatient colonoscopy with midazolam and fentanyl using the validated PROcedural Sedation Assessment Survey (PROSAS)...

BACKGROUND: The rate of cecal intubation is a well-recognized quality measure of successful colonoscopy. Infrequently, the standard colonoscopy techniques fail to achieve complete examination. The role of single-balloon overtube-assisted colonoscopy (SBC) in these situations has only been sparsely studied. This prospective single-center study aimed to investigate the technical success (rate of cecal intubation) and the diagnostic gain of SBC. METHODS: The study recruited consecutive patients with previous incomplete standard colonoscopy who were admitted for SBC at our tertiary center in Eastern Switzerland between February 2008 and October 2014...

The principal surgical complication feared in a patient under anti-angiogenic targeted therapy is gastrointestinal perforation. It is therefore important to be alert to situations "potentially at risk" of perforation: diverticulitis, carcinomatosis, intra-abdominal abscess, history of external radiotherapy, colonoscopy in the 4 weeks preceding the treatment, inflammatory disease and gastrointestinal mucosal ulceration, colonic stent, NSAID. It is essential to make an early diagnosis, and for treatment to be conservative if possible, with nasogastric aspiration without surgery...

BACKGROUND: Little is known about minor adverse events (MAEs) following outpatient colonoscopies and associated health care resource utilization. OBJECTIVE: To estimate the rates of incident MAE at two, 14 and 30 days postcolonoscopy, and associated health care resource utilization. A secondary aim was to identify factors associated with cumulative 30-day MAE incidence. METHODS: A longitudinal cohort study was conducted among individuals undergoing an outpatient colonoscopy at the Montreal General Hospital (Montreal, Quebec)...

INTRODUCTION: The endoscopic placement of self-expanding metallic stents (SEMS) emerges as a therapeutic option for neoplastic colonic obstruction in two situations: as palliative treatment and as a bridge to surgery. The latter can avoid emergency surgery, thus decreasing the rate of ostomies and the mortality and morbidity associated with them. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the feasibility, safety and benefits of SEMS placement for the treatment of neoplastic colorectal obstruction...

The gastrointestinal tract, including the liver and pancreas, is a complex system whose function is to process a wide range of nutrient and other products enabling their absorption as well as detoxification and excretion. During the process, food is converted into energy and into other substances that are used by cells throughout the entire body. Many diseases can affect the various organs of the gastrointestinal (GI) system and diet plays a relatively minor role in the onset of such GI diseases. Recently it has become clear that glutamine, a 'non-essential' amino acid, is important in the maintenance of intestinal mucosal metabolism, structure and function...

BACKGROUND: non-anesthesiologist administration of propofol (NAAP) using continuous infusion systems may achieve a more sustained sedative action. AIM: to compare intermittent boluses (IB) with pump continuous infusion (PCI) for NAAP, targeted to moderate sedation, for colonoscopy. METHODS: 192 consecutive outpatients were randomized to receive IB (20 mg propofol boluses on demand) or PCI (3 mg/kg/h plus 20 mg boluses on demand). Sedation could be stopped at cecal intubation at the discretion of the endoscopist...

A case of severe rectal bleeding following transurethral ultrasound (TRUS)-guided prostate biopsy is reported. Rectal bleeding is considered a minor, transient complication of this standard diagnostic procedure that can usually be controlled successfully by conservative measures. In this case where the patient had been taking acetylsalicylic acid (ASA), massive bleeding required hospitalization and blood transfusions. Conservative treatment attempts were not succesful, and profuse rectal bleeding was eventually treated by colonoscopy and endoclipping of the bleeding vessel...
