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 diagnose almost all the most dangerous pathologies of the colon accurately and timely:
Colonoscopy provides a unique opportunity to perform treatment of many pathologies without performing cavitary operations.
Moreover, colonoscopy can detect various diseases in the early stages to avoid the development of 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 degree of hypertension, pulmonary and cardiac failure, strokes, peritonitis, significant disorders of the blood coagulation system, ulcerative or ischemic colitis in severe 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 colonoscopy. Firstly, the most convenient preparation is the cleaning of the intestine. Secondly, the uses of enemas are not recommended because it requires certain skills for a guaranteed result. It is advised to conduct colonic irrigation in a specialised clinic, where professionals qualitatively and reliably remove toxins and waste from the colon. We suggest that you have an initial consultation and procedure at our clinic in London.
