I see two techniques used on this report: 45385 + 45380...do you collegues agree
PROCEDURE: Pancolonoscopy with multiple polypectomies.
An Olympus CF-140L video colonoscope was passed per anus and advanced without much difficulty, all the way to the apex of the cecum. The appendiceal orifice and ileocecal valve were distinctly identified. Upon withdrawing the scope, the entire colon was examined very well. At the ascending colon, there were three flat, sessile 3-5 mm polyps. All of these were removed completely by electrocautery forceps. At the transverse colon there were four, flat, sessile 3-4 mm polyps. These were likewise removed. At the proximal sigmoid colon, there were two flat, sessile, 3-4 mm polyps, which were again removed by electrocautery forceps. There were a few diverticula noted at the sigmoid colon. At the 20 cm sigmoid colon, there was a 6-7 mm sessile polyp. This was removed completely by snare cautery and retrieved. The rectum was examined well on both and J-maneuver, and appeared normal. Flat, internal hemorrhoids were seen.
The patient tolerated the procedure very well.
