Comparison of two cathartic preparations, peg-electrolytes solution and sodium phosphate salts, as means for large bowel preparation for colonoscopy (EN)

SUMMARY The ideal bowel preparation for colonoscopy must combine the characteristics of effectiveness with the least side effects. We compared the relatively novel cathartic preparation of sodium phosphate salts (Fleet Phospho-sodaR) with the widely used PEG-electrolytes solution (Klean-prepR). Fiftytwo consecutive patients referred for colonoscopy were randomised to receive either sodium phospate salts or PEG electrolytes. The evaluation of the two preparations was based on two separate questionnaires, one completed by the endoscopist who ignored the kind of bowel preparation used and the other by the patient. Bowel preparation with sodium phospate salts was more effective in bowel cleansing and better tolerated than PEG-electrolytes solution in terms of difficulty in intake and swallowing, fatigue, the presence of colicky abdominal pain, flatulence, vomiting and perianal irritation (p (EN)
