ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a study related to withdrawal of consent (WOC) during colonoscopy. There is considerable debate regarding the definition of WOC and little data on its occurrence. As part of a prospective study on assessment of patient pain during colonoscopy, researchers collected data on WOC. True WOC resulting in procedure to be stopped is rare. Predicted or perceived pain from colonoscopy does not influence the occurrence or recollection of WOC. The frequency of true and temporary WOL, the relationship of its occurrence to patients' predicted and perceived pain, as well as the influence of gender and findings at colonoscopy to WOC were determined.
