Feasibility of endoscopic closure of an iatrogenic colon perforation occurring during colonoscopy.
Summary of "Feasibility of endoscopic closure of an iatrogenic colon perforation occurring during colonoscopy."
Colon perforation is one of the most dreaded complications of colonoscopy. Traditionally, patients with a colon perforation have been treated surgically. Although there are several case reports documenting the usefulness of endoscopic closure of colon perforations, there are few current data evaluating the feasibility of endoscopic closure for an iatrogenic perforation on consecutive patients undergoing colonoscopy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The segment of LARGE INTESTINE between the CECUM and the RECTUM. It includes the ASCENDING COLON; the TRANSVERSE COLON; the DESCENDING COLON; and the SIGMOID COLON.
Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the luminal surface of the colon.
Any adverse condition in a patient occurring as the result of treatment by a physician, surgeon, or other health professional, especially infections acquired by the patient during the course of treatment.
The segment of LARGE INTESTINE between ASCENDING COLON and DESCENDING COLON. It passes from the RIGHT COLIC FLEXURE across the ABDOMEN, then turns sharply at the left colonic flexure into the descending colon.
The segment of LARGE INTESTINE between TRANSVERSE COLON and the SIGMOID COLON.
BACKGROUND: The therapeutic methods of iatrogenic colon perforation have not been performed despite the increasing rates of successful management by endoscopic clip closure. This study aimed to analyz...
INTRODUCTION: This response discusses the article by Kim and colleagues entitled "endoscopic clip closure versus surgery for the treatment of iatrogenic colon perforations developed during diagnostic...
Abstract Endoscopic treatment of walled-off pancreatic necrosis is becoming more prevalent in clinical practice, although perforation may complicate 5% of cases, and efficient management of this compl...
With increasingly advanced therapeutic endoscopic procedures and more complex gastrointestinal surgery, endoscopists are more often confronted with perforations, fistulas, and anastomotic leakages for...
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effectiveness and outcomes of endoscopic closure of a gastric fundus perforation using over-the-scope clips (OTSC) system in a surviving canine model. METHODS: Gastric fundu...
Background: T-shaped tissue anchors have promise to close incisions and perforations of the intestines securely. The closure of perforations, gastro-gastric, or intestinal fistulas usually...
This study is being done to see if a new approach to repair perforated ulcers in the stomach (holes in the stomach) or the first part of the intestine will work as well or better than the...
Patients with suspected leakage at the specified surgical anastomoses undergo an immediate diagnostic endoscopy as part of current clinical routine. Consenting patients meeting the inclusi...
The purpose of this study is to determine the short and long term outcome of endoscopic vacuum assisted closure of intrathoracic postsurgical leaks.
Gastric subepithelial masses might harbour gastrointestinal stromal tumors, which should get resected because of their malignant potential. To minimize the associated surgical trauma endos...
