ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a study that shows older age, female sex, and trainee endoscopist are factors associated with longer insertion time at colonoscopy. Ability to predict factors associated with difficult colonoscopy may help in patient selection and efficient scheduling of endoscopy lists. Procedure completion rate is not a useful marker for difficult colonosocpy as expert colonoscopists achieve very high caecal intubation rates. Endoscopy list scheduling should take into account patient factors such as age and sex, and whether the procedure is to be performed by a trainee endoscopist.
