High impact information on Proctoscopy

  • Before administration of aspirin, all subjects underwent gastroduodenoscopy, and most underwent proctoscopy for assessment of mucosal injury and prostaglandin content [1].
  • AIMS: To evaluate the effect of gastrin on colorectal cell proliferation, patients with chronic endogenous hypergastrinaemia underwent proctoscopy [2].
  • Data from the 1987 and 1992 Cancer Control Supplements of the National Health Interview Survey were analyzed to determine use of Pap smears by women aged 18+; of mammography and clinical breast examination by women aged 50+; and of proctoscopy, digital rectal examination, and fecal occult blood testing among men and women aged 50+ [3].
  • A long term surveillance proctoscopy program was performed on 25 patients with an established diagnosis of FAP or Gardner's syndrome [4].
  • The follow-up regimen consisted of clinical exam, liver function tests, carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) level, and chest x-ray every three months for the first two years postoperatively and every six months thereafter, and colonoscopy or barium enema and proctoscopy every six months for the first two years postoperatively and every year thereafter [5].

Associations of Proctoscopy with chemical compounds

  • Fifty of 100 persons who had undergone health screening received phosphate enema while the other 50 received glycerin enema prior to proctoscopy and barium enema, and their usefulness for preparation for colon examination was compared by a double-blind test [6].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Proctoscopy

  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Twenty patients from 16 families with the established diagnosis of FAP, or Gardner's syndrome, who had been treated by total colectomy with ileorectal anastomosis, were followed up by proctoscopy for at least 5 years [7].
