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.

    Background and Study Aims: There is general consensus that water instillation helps insert a colonoscope. However, the most effective method for water instillation has not yet been established, especially for endoscopists-in-training. The aim of this study was to determine volume and temperature...

    Background: Safe and effective colonoscopy is aided by the use of endoscopic techniques and maneuvers (ETM) during the examination including patient repositioning, stiffening of the endoscope and abdominal pressure. Aim: To better understand the use and value of ETM during colonoscopy by using a...

    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: The use of a transparent hood to improve colonoscopic performance has recently been proposed. Aims: The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether using the hood might improve the cecal intubation rate, cecal intubation time, number of attempts needed to intubate the ileo-cecal...

    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...
