Old age is a risk factor of suboptimal bowel preparation. This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of mosapride citrate with a split dose of polyethylene glycol (PEG) plus ascorbic acid for bowel pre...
Appropriate bowel cleansing before colonoscopy is an important factor in increasing the detection rate of lesions. Low-volume polyethylene glycol (PEG) plus ascorbic acid (PEG-Asc) reduces the dosage ...
A successful colonoscopy depends, among other factors, on a proper colon cleansing. This variable also affects the acceptance of the patient to carry out the study.
The age to stop screening or surveillance colonoscopy is not well established, and unplanned hospital use after colonoscopy in the elderly is not well understood.
To describe the clinical signs, clinicopathologic abnormalities, treatment, and outcome after IV administration of polyethylene glycol 3350 (PEG3350) in a cat.
Study evaluates the efficacy and tolerability of low volume preparations compared with conventional 4L polyethylene glycol prior to colonoscopy
Polyethylene glycol is the gold standard of bowel preparation for colonoscopy. The most important disadvantage is high volume of this preparation. Sulphate based solution (SBS), low volume...
Linaclotide based bowel cleansing regimen might be helpful to improve bowel cleansing quality before colonoscopy.
This study is to compare polyethylene glycol and sodium phosphate for colonic cleansing of colonoscopy.
High quality bowel preparation is essential for successful colonoscopy. This study aimed to assess the impact of the dose of Polyethylene Glycol(PEG) on the quality of bowel preparation. T...
A network of cross-linked hydrophilic macromolecules used in biomedical applications fabricated by photopolymerization of polyethylene glycol dimethacrylate. Its general formulae is C3H5C(O)(OCH2CH2)nOC(O)C3H5 where n denotes a number of average polyglycol (OCH2CH2) repeats.
Ophthalmic solutions that include LUBRICANTS and WETTING AGENTS such as POLYETHYLENE GLYCOL; HYPROMELLOSE; GLYCEROL; PROPYLENE GLYCOL. They are used to treat conditions caused by deficient tear production such as DRY EYE SYNDROME.
A vinyl polymer made from ethylene. It can be branched or linear. Branched or low-density polyethylene is tough and pliable but not to the same degree as linear polyethylene. Linear or high-density polyethylene has a greater hardness and tensile strength. Polyethylene is used in a variety of products, including implants and prostheses.
Non-ionic surfactant of the polyethylene glycol family. It is used as a solubilizer and emulsifying agent in foods, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals, often as an ointment base, and also as a research tool.
A copolymer of polyethylene and polypropylene ether glycol. It is a non-ionic polyol surface-active agent used medically as a fecal softener and in cattle for prevention of bloat.
