ABSTRACT
This article focuses on an analysis of 2906 colonoscopies with conditions of practice in a district general hospital. The study aimed to identify indications, results, complications, and completion rates for colonoscopy in a district general hospital. Researchers in the study conclude that completion rate is dependant on experience while intra-procedural complications are not. Polyps are the commonest finding while rectal bleeding is the commonest indication for colonoscopy in colorectal cancer diagnosis.
