ABSTRACT
The article presents the case of a 37-year-old female with strange frozen pelvis detected on the anterior wall of her rectum. She was consulted to the general surgical outpatient clinic for anemia and change of bowel habit she experienced for two months. Abdominal examination detected unusual mass on her left iliac fosa. The general surgeon suspected it as rectal cancer, and flexible sigmoidoscopy was conducted that revealed a mass encroaching at her rectum but with no mucosal abnormality.

    Introduction: Patients referred to the rectal bleeding clinic (RBC) for open access flexible sigmoidoscopy (FS) may require further investigations. Aims: To look at the diagnostic yield of colonoscopy following FS. Results: Between 1/12/99 to 30/11/2001, 318 patients attending the RBC had...

    The integrity of a low pelvic anastomosis is often studied radiographically before takedown of a diverting ileostomy. The aim of this study is to determine the impact of routine water-soluble enema studies (WSE) in our patient population with low pelvic anastomosis. We retrospectively reviewed...

    The article presents a case study of three patients having complications after stapled hemorrhoidopexy (SH). Two previously healthy patients complained of three-days severe anal pain after SH with tenesmus, and ischaemia was apparent at sigmoidoscopy. The third patient had only urinary...

    The article describes the case of a 50-year-old woman who developed proctocolitis after undergoing colonoscopy. A few hours after colonoscopy, she developed lower abdominal and left iliac fossa pain. A sigmoidoscopy a day later showed rectal bleeding. Physicans also noted patchy erythema and...

    Although previously described and advocated, rectal retroflection has not been well studied as a diagnostic maneuver. We report 75 cases in which the maneuver was performed during colonoscopy or fibersigmoidoscopy. The technique was both easily performed by the examiner and well tolerated by...

    OBJECTIVE: Flexible sigmoidoscopy has been recommended for diagnosis of patients with bright red rectal bleeding. The purpose of this study was to determine whether lesions associated with bright red hematochezia are located in the distal 60 cm of the colorectum and, therefore, in reach of a...

    OBJECTIVE: Traditionally, contiguous distribution of inflammation (endoscopic and histological) with rectal involvement is thought to be important in distinguishing ulcerative colitis (UC) from Crohn's disease of the colon. Little long-term data are available that prove whether this rule holds...
