The article presents a case of 61-year old male suffering from abdominal pain after attempted endoscopic mucosal resection of a right-sided colonic lesion. Prior to the abdominal pain, the patient underwent a routine colonoscopy and a 1.5 cm sessile polyp was found within the caecum. On examination, he was apyrexial but very tender with guarding in the right iliac fossa (RIF). An emergency righ hemicolectomy was performed approximately 72h postcolonoscopy.

    A high-quality bowel cleansing preparation is an essential prerequisite for a safe, efficient, and accurate colonoscopy.
