Bowel Preparation and Factors Correlated with Patients and Parents
The quality of the colonic cleansing greatly influences the success rate of colonoscopy, both in terms of diagnostic and therapeutic potentialities. Different bowel cleansing solutions are available for children, but no standard regimens have been realized yet, as well as a standardized approach to an inadequately prepared colon discovered on intubation. Suboptimal colonic preparation can occur in up to one-third of colonoscopies. Colonic cleansing quality has to be properly reported in colonoscopy reports.
