Abstract

We reviewed our experience with an oral gut lavage solution (GoLYTELY), used as a rapid bowel cleansing preparation, and the prospective clinical trials reported in the literature to compare the overall experience with this type of preparation for colonoscopy and colon surgery. Five studies (546 patients) compared GoLYTELY to standard preparations for colonoscopy, while three trials (177 patients) have studied surgical patients. After evaluating patient tolerance, quality of colonic cleansing, and changes in microflora and colonic gas, GoLYTELY was found to be safe, rapid, and effective. It is well tolerated by patients and may become the preferred method of bowel cleansing.
