ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a study related to artificial bowel markers as a novel method to assess the sensitivity of colonoscopic mucosal visualisation. Colonoscopy is currently the gold standard for assessing colonic mucosal abnormalities. An important component of this is complete examination of the colon to the caecum. The study concludes that skills required for identification of mucosal abnormalities may differ from those required to achieve caecal intubation. This would appear worthy of further detailed study.

    The utility of routine ileoscopy as a component of screening colonoscopy is unclear. Many endoscopists believe that routine intubation of the terminal ileum is a requirement for a full-screening colonoscopy. The authors have hypothesized that routine ileal intubation during screening colonoscopy...

    Background: Colonoscopy fails to achieve cecal intubation in 5-10 % of cases. Many of these cases can be completed using balloon-assisted colonoscopy, either with the single-balloon colonoscopy (SBC) or the double-balloon colonoscopy (DBC) techniques. Aim: To compare the completion rates of SBC...

    Background: Many factors impacting cecal intubation rates have been examined in detail; however, little information exists regarding the effect of the timing of the procedure. We sought to examine any difference in cecal intubation rates between morning and afternoon colonoscopies and identify...

Gentle insertion involves ancillary techniques, some of which are impossible in patients receiving deep sedation. The aim of this study was to assess the importance of ancillary techniques in...

    Background/Aims: A few studies showed that hood-cap assisted colonoscopy (CAC) had improved cecal intubation rate and cecal intubation time but did not help in finding colon polyps in comparison with conventional colonoscopy (CC). However, other studies have shown different results. Therefore,...
