Comparison of bowel-cleansing efficacy of split-dose and same-day dose bowel preparation for afternoon colonoscopy in patients with gastrectomy: a prospective randomized study.


A split dose (SPD) of purgative is the recommended bowel-preparation method for colonoscopy, although for colonoscopy scheduled for the afternoon, a same-day dose (SDD) of purgative is recommended. However, it has not been determined whether SPD or SDD is better in patients with gastrectomy who are at high risk of suboptimal bowel cleansing. We compared the bowel-cleansing efficacy of SPD and SDD regimens in patients with gastrectomy who underwent colonoscopy in the afternoon.
