A linear sigmoid colon passage method by left twisting

Satoshi Awazu, Nagasaki, Japan

  We encountered a situation whereby the sigmoid colon becomes linear and the colonoscope can be readily inserted through the sigmoid colon when the colonoscope is inserted with twisting to the left in the left semiprone position.    

  Therefore, our new insertion method was devised so that the colonoscope neutral position was maintained as shown in part A and this method was performed to determine whether the colonoscope looping rate in the sigmoid colon can be reduced.
