Post colonoscopy ischemic colitis: a case and literature review
Researcher Bulletin of Medical Sciences,
Vol. 22 No. 1 (2017),
Ischemic colitis is the most common form of intestinal ischemia and is more common in the elderly and among individuals with risk factors for ischemia. Ischemic colitis is a rare complication of colonoscopy. The predisposing conditions for developing ischemic colitis following colonoscopy are connective tissue disease, advanced age and cardiovascular disease. Ischemic colitis may rarely occur following a colonoscopy without these risk factors. The data collection of 22 case of ischemic colitis (21 cases in previous reports and one case in our case) were reviewed. Here, we report a case of ischemic colitis after a routine colonoscopy in patient without risk factors for ischemia.
Conclusion: Colonoscopy could be induced ischemic colitis, that should be brought to attention of gastroenterologist.
