Agents that are used to evacuate the bowels to eliminate ingested NOXAE or to prepare for COLONOSCOPY.
A condition characterized by chronic watery DIARRHEA of unknown origin, a normal COLONOSCOPY but abnormal histopathology on BIOPSY. This syndrome was first described in 1980 by Read and associates. Subtypes include COLLAGENOUS COLITIS and LYMPHOCYTIC COLITIS. Both have similar clinical symptoms and are distinguishable only by histology.
A subtype of MICROSCOPIC COLITIS, characterized by chronic watery DIARRHEA of unknown origin, a normal COLONOSCOPY but abnormal histopathology on BIOPSY. Microscopic examination of biopsy samples taken from the COLON show larger-than-normal band of subepithelial COLLAGEN.
A subtype of MICROSCOPIC COLITIS, characterized by chronic watery DIARRHEA of unknown origin, a normal COLONOSCOPY but abnormal histopathology on BIOPSY. Microscopic examination of biopsy samples taken from the COLON show infiltration of LYMPHOCYTES in the superficial EPITHELIUM and the underlying connective tissue (lamina propria).
The purpose of this study is to compare Nulytely (or Trilyte) with a Gatorade and Miralax combination for cleaning out the colon before colonoscopy. A laxative pill called Bisacodyl may al...
The objective of this study is to determine the efficacy and safety of HalfLytely as compared to Visicol as bowel preparations before colonoscopic examination.
A properly prepared colon is vital to the success of any colonoscopy. The purpose of this study is to determine which colon prep, MoviPrep or HalfLytely is the superior prepping agent.

Colonoscopy has become accepted as the most effective method of screening of the colon for neoplasia. Evidences prove that utilization of colonoscopy has increased dramatically in the past few years,...
A redundant colon can lead to incomplete colonoscopy. A variety of tools and techniques are available to complete colonoscopy but have limitations.
INTRODUCTION: Double contrast barium enema (DCBE) is used to screen and diagnose colorectal disease and is often recommended following an incomplete colonoscopy. The purpose of this study was to deter...
BACKGROUND: We evaluated the performance of a newly developed small-caliber (SC) colonoscope (PCF-PQ260L). This colonoscope (diameter 9.2 mm) is designed with passive-bending and high-force transmiss...
Abstract Objective. Colorectal polyps can be missed even during a meticulous colonoscopy by an experienced colonoscopist. The aim of this study was to investigate patient-, procedure-, and polyp-relat...
