Abstract

According to ESPGHAN, polyethylene glycol with electrolytes (PEG) is generally the recommended laxative for bowel cleansing prior to colonoscopy in children owing to cleansing quality and safety [1]. Children with various gastrointestinal disorders such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) undergo colonoscopy as the standard examination of the bowel as a diagnostic and therapeutic tool. A colonoscopy can only be performed if the bowel is clean, however it has been seen that bowel cleansing is the most difficult part of the procedure prior to colonoscopy [2].
