In patients at risk for hydroelectrolyte disturbances, the choice of laxative should be individualized.Strong recommendation, moderate quality evidence.

The European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) together with the United European Gastroenterology (UEG) recently developed a short list of performance measures for small-bowel endoscopy (i....
The European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) has published guidelines on key performance measures for colonoscopy. We analyzed whether those standards were met in the Polish Colonoscop...
There is a need for well-organized comprehensive strategies to achieve good training in ESD. In this context, the European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) have developed a European core c...
The split-dose regimen (SpD) has demonstrated its superiority over the day-before regimen (DB) in determining a better colon cleansing and is considered the standard bowel preparation for ...
Bowel preparation for colonoscopy is crucial, since the diagnostic accuracy of the procedure depends on an adequate visualization of the mucosa of the colon.There is strong evidence that t...
To evaluate the safety, tolerance and efficacy of BLI4600 in multiple dosing regimens as a bowel preparation prior to colonoscopy in adult patients.
Poor or inadequate bowel preparation is one of the most common reasons for a repeated or failed colonoscopy. Preparation methods shown to be effective include the use of either bowel-clean...
Adequate bowel preparation is one of the most important quality measures in colonoscopy. Previous studies identified several factors associated with inadequate bowel preparation (IBP). No ...
Non-invasive, endoscopic imaging by use of VIDEO CAPSULE ENDOSCOPES to perform examination of the gastrointestinal tract, especially the small bowel.
Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the gastrointestinal tract.
A pattern of gastrointestinal muscle contraction and depolarizing myoelectric activity that moves from the stomach to the ILEOCECAL VALVE at regular frequency during the interdigestive period. The complex and its accompanying motor activity periodically cleanse the bowel of interdigestive secretion and debris in preparation for the next meal.
Procedures of applying ENDOSCOPES for disease diagnosis and treatment. Endoscopy involves passing an optical instrument along either natural body pathways such as the digestive tract, or through keyhole incisions to examine the interior parts of the body. With advances in imaging, endoscope, and miniaturization of endosurgical equipment, surgery can be performed during endoscopy.
Passage of food (sometimes in the form of a test meal) through the gastrointestinal tract as measured in minutes or hours. The rate of passage through the intestine is an indicator of small bowel function.
