Fecal microbiota transplant (FMT) has emerged as a highly efficacious treatment for difficult cases of refractory and/or recurrent Clostridium difficile infection (CDI). There have been many well-conducted randomized controlled trials and thousands of patients reported in case series that describe success rates of approximately 90% following one or more FMT. Although the exact mechanisms of FMT have yet to be fully elucidated, replacement or restoration of a 'normal' microbiota (or at least a microbiota resembling those who have never had CDI) appears to have a positive effect on the gut dysbiosis that is thought to exist in these patients...

CT colonography (CTC) has demonstrated equivalent accuracy to optical colonoscopy in the detection of clinically relevant polyps and tumors but this is only possible when technique is optimized. The two most important features of a high-quality CTC are a well-prepared colon and a distended colon. This article will discuss the dietary, bowel preparation, and fecal/fluid tagging options to best prepare the colon. Strategies to optimally distend the colon will also be discussed. CT scan techniques including patient positioning and radiation dose optimization will be reviewed...

A theory-driven tailored intervention developed in partnership with the community used evidence-based practices to (a) increase knowledge about colon cancer and screening and (b) assist patients in completing screenings. During the 16 months of delivery screening, patient navigators integrated into gastroenterology clinics met all goals, which included (a) enrolling an ethnically diverse group of participants ( N = 415) through inreach (clinic-referred patients who did not schedule appointments) and community outreach, (b) facilitating screening completions for 217 of the 358 (61%) patients identified as needing screening, and (c) obtaining satisfaction ratings from 89% of participants...

BACKGROUND: Cancer screening rates are lowest in those without insurance or a regular provider. Since 2008, the Colorectal Cancer Prevention Network (CCPN) has provided open access colonoscopy to uninsured residents of South Carolina through established, statewide partnerships and patient navigation. Herein, we describe the structure, implementation, and clinical outcomes of this program. METHODS: The CCPN provides access to colonoscopy screening at no cost to uninsured, asymptomatic patients aged 50-64 years (African Americans age 45-64 years are eligible) who live at or below 150% of the poverty line and seek medical care in free medical clinics, federally qualified health centers, or hospital-based indigent practices in South Carolina...

An 81-year-old patient with significant cardiac comorbidities, a history of sigmoid resection 6 years ago, and iliac bypass surgery 19 years ago presented with mild hematochezia for the previous 3 days. While hemodynamically stable at first, he developed massive bleeding during preparation for colonoscopy and underwent a short course of cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Colonoscopy revealed no active bleeding but a protuberance of the colonic wall and a coagulation clot. In ultrasonography immediately after endoscopy, a large aneurysm was diagnosed and diagnosis of an iliaco-colonic fistula was assumed...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Colonoscopy is the gold standard for visualization and diagnosis of conditions involving the colon and terminal ileum. It also facilitates screening and prevention of colorectal cancer, which is the second leading cause of cancer death in the USA. Adequate cleansing is essential for thorough visualization of the colon with successful detection of colon polyps. RECENT FINDINGS: While the original large-volume polyethylene glycol preparations are still commonly used, several lower volume regimens are widely available and selected based on provider and patient preferences...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Polyethylene glycol (PEG)-3350, approved by Food and Drug Administration (FDA) only for constipation, combined with 1.9 L of sports drink (SD) (GatoradeR) and bisacodyl (B) is commonly used in outpatient practice for bowel preparation due to cited patient satisfaction and tolerability of this specific regimen. We aim to compare PEG-3350 (MiralaxR) with PEG-AA-based (MoviPrepR) in terms of efficacy, patient satisfaction, and the effects of these two regimen on serum electrolytes...

The safety of bowel-cleansing agents is an important issue in clinical practice, especially in patients with chronic diseases. Although the safety and efficacy of polyethylene glycol (PEG) has been investigated in many studies, few studies on PEG plus ascorbic acid exist. In this study, we compared the safety of 2 bowel-cleansing agents for patients with liver cirrhosis: 2-liter PEG (2 L PEG) plus ascorbic acid versus 4-liter PEG (4 L PEG). We performed a retrospective study on colonoscopy in patients with liver cirrhosis...

We present a case of double-chambered right ventricle diagnosed during preparation for colonoscopy due to gastrointestinal bleeding in a 16-year-old, mentally disabled boy with Williams syndrome. The patient was previously diagnosed with ventricular septal defect and mild pulmonary stenosis. Echocardiography performed under general anesthesia revealed hypertrophied muscular bundles in the right ventricle with the maximum gradient of 100 mmHg, causing severe outflow obstruction. This type of defect is extremely rare in patients with Williams syndrome, with only one case, which was diagnosed during invasive angiocardiography, described in world literature...

BACKGROUND [color=black]Bowel preparation is an important factor for an optimal outcome of colonoscopy. Recently, polyethylene glycol (PEG) solution has been in common use for bowel cleansing for colonoscopy, but some patients are intolerant of PEG because of taste or volume. A low-volume PEG administered with ascorbic acid solution (PEG-Asc) was designed to improve tolerability, but the administration of this method is more complex than that with PEG alone. This study aimed to compare bowel cleansing efficacy, safety, and tolerability of 1 L PEG-Asc with a 2 L PEG preparation with use of sennosides and mosapride...

Optimal patient education prior to colonoscopy is essential for an optimal outcome of the procedure. Patients benefit from adequate information regarding laxatives, risks and alternatives, and must provide informed consent. The endoscopist also has to have access to patient data in advance of the procedure in order to carry out an adequate risk assessment for the use of sedation. Most centres in the Netherlands usually make use of a pre-endoscopy consultation to exchange this information, but here is now pressure on this practice because the number of colonoscopies is increasing rapidly as a result of the introduction of the national screening programme for colorectal cancer...

BACKGROUND: Because of its volume, adequate bowel preparation remains problematic in physically unfit patients. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to compare a small-volume sodium picosulfate/magnesium citrate preparation with a 2-L ascorbic acid-enriched polyethylene glycol solution plus bisacodyl. DESIGN: This study has a noninferiority design, assuming that ascorbic acid-enriched polyethylene glycol solution plus bisacodyl is 70% efficacious in achieving an Ottawa score ≤7 and accepting a difference in success rate of <15% with a target enrollment of 146 patients per group...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Bowel preparation for colonoscopy induces a semi-fasting state, with a potential negative impact on fragile patients. The present study aims to quantify nutritional deficiency during colonoscopy preparation. METHODS: This was an observational and cross-sectional study. A convenience sample was obtained that included adults that underwent colonoscopy after bowel preparation with Klean-Prep® according to the center protocol. Anthropometric evaluation was performed and nutritional deficiency was calculated via the quantification of energy and protein intake during the 48 hours prior to the examination which was compared with the individuals' needs...

BACKGROUND: Previous research has assessed anxiety around colonoscopy procedures, but has not considered anxiety related to different aspects related to the colonoscopy process. AIMS: Before colonoscopy, we assessed anxiety about: bowel preparation, the procedure, and the anticipated results. We evaluated associations between patient characteristics and anxiety in each area. METHODS: An anonymous survey was distributed to patients immediately prior to their outpatient colonoscopy in six hospitals and two ambulatory care centers in Winnipeg, Canada...
