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...
Randomized, placebo-controlled, double blind study. 203 subjects entered the study to compare the effect on occasional constipation of polyethylene glycol 3350 to placebo. Subjects took on...
Linaclotide based bowel cleansing regimen might be helpful to improve bowel cleansing quality before colonoscopy.
The purpose of this study is to determine any significant differences in the efficacy and acceptability between CitraFleet and Klean Prep® (polyethylene glycol) for the preparation of gas...
The optimal duration of bowel preparation has only been assessed for polyethylene glycol (PEG). The aim of the study was to determine the intervals for achieving a satisfactory quality/tolerability of...
Efficacy and Safety of Sodium Picosulfate/Magnesium Citrate for Bowel Preparation in a Physically Disabled Outpatient Population: A Randomized, Endoscopist-Blinded Comparison With Ascorbic Acid-Enriched Polyethylene Glycol Solution Plus Bisacodyl (The PICO-MOVI Study).
Because of its volume, adequate bowel preparation remains problematic in physically unfit patients.
Current bowel preparations for colonoscopy include a clear liquid diet (CLD) along with consumption of a laxative. This dietary restriction along with large volume bowel preparations are barriers to c...
BACKGROUND [color=black]Bowel preparation is an important factor for an optimal outcome of colonoscopy. Recently, polyethylene glycol (PEG) solution has been in common use for bowel cleansing for colo...
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.
The infiltrating of histological specimens with plastics, including acrylic resins, epoxy resins and polyethylene glycol, for support of the tissues in preparation for sectioning with a microtome.
