In Holborn, we help prepare the bowels for colonoscopy. For instance, colonoscopy (or fibro-colonoscopy, FCC) examines the rectum and large intestine through a special probe. To clarify, this is the most accurate method of examination, which has no analogues in terms of diagnostic and treatment options. Usually, the proctologist prescribes this study during the consultation of a patient with problems with the intestines.
So, colonoscopy allows the diagnosis of almost all the most dangerous pathologies of the colon accurately and timely:
Colonoscopy provides a unique opportunity to treat many pathologies without cavitary operations.
Moreover, a colonoscopy can detect various diseases in the early stages to avoid developing serious complications. In addition to the already diagnosed cases of intestinal cancer and other serious pathologies, the indications for compulsory colonoscopy are:
The main contraindications to colonoscopy are severe hypertension, pulmonary and cardiac failure, strokes, peritonitis, significant disorders of the blood coagulation system, and ulcerative or ischemic colitis in extreme forms and adhesions. In every case before the procedure, it is necessary to consult a specialist to determine the possible contraindications.
It is necessary to go through special preparations to improve the results of a colonoscopy. Firstly, the most convenient practice is the cleaning of the intestine. Secondly, using enemas is not recommended because it requires specific skills for a guaranteed result. Conducting colonic irrigation in a specialised clinic, where professionals qualitatively and reliably remove toxins and waste from the colon, is advised. We suggest you have an initial consultation and procedure at our clinic in London.
