ABSTRACT

Background:

Colonoscopy is difficult in elderly patients and is accompanied by more frequent abdominal pain and tissue injury.

Aims:

To investigate the impact of water infusion colonoscopy on abdominal pain and inflammatory response in elderly patients.

Methods:

Forty elderly patients requiring colonoscopy were enrolled from Jan. 2014 to Jun. 2016 at the Nanyang Second People’s Hospital and randomly allocated into two groupscolonoscopy with traditional air insufflation and colonoscopy with water infusion instead of air insufflation for cecal intubation. Times of cecal intubation and withdrawal were recorded;visual analogue scale( VAS)was used to assess the severity of abdominal pain;and serum levels of three inflammatory indices,tumor necrosis factor-α(TNF-α),interleukin-6(IL-6)and C-reactive protein(CRP)were determined by ELISA before and after the procedure.

Results:

VAS score at colonoscopy in water infusion group was significantly lower than that in air insufflation group(P﹤0. 05),however,times of cecal intubation and withdrawal were not significantly different between the two groups(P﹥0. 05). Before the procedure,serum levels of inflammatory indices were similar between air insufflation group and water infusion group(P﹥0. 05);0,6 and 24 hours after the procedure, serum levels of TNF-α,IL-6 and CRP in air insufflation group were significantly increased(P﹤0. 05)and higher than those in water infusion group at the same time points(P﹤0. 05). These inflammatory indices were recovered more rapidly in water infusion group than in air insufflation group.

Conclusions:

For elderly patients,colonoscopy with water infusion might ameliorate abdominal pain and inhibit systemic inflammatory response effectively.
