Abstract

Since the discovery of capsule endoscopy, have been introduced in different indications. It is used mainly to examine the small intestine. Newly Introduced Improvements include the technical design of specific capsules for the esophagus and colon. We must not forget that colon capsule preparation needed before the colon, like a colonoscopy. The most common indications are screening for colorectal cancer when colonoscopy is incomplete and when the patient refuses to undergo colonoscopy. This article aims to describe a possible indication of colon capsule endoscopy and the experience gained in our hospital. The indication would be in patients with stenosing left colon tumors treated using self-expanding metal stents. This technique would be an alternative to colonoscopy colon through the colon prostheses as a bridge to surgery. In our experience, we must be modified the colon preparation adding lactulose, and we waiting that the colon diameter at ends of the stent both is similar. We have obtained promising results with a diagnosed case of synchronous cancer, and we have not had any cases of impaction of the capsule.
