[Laparoscopy in iatrogenic lesions of the colon during operative endoscopy].Ann Ital Chir. 1997 Nov-Dec; 68(6):859-61; discussion 861-2.AI
Colonscopy is a standard diagnostic and therapeutic procedure that has its own morbidity. Colonic perforation is the dangerous complication of this procedure. Successful management of perforation by conservative or surgical treatment remains controversial. We report two cases, recently observed, of patients with colonic perforation occurring during therapeutic colonscopy treated with minimally invasive technique.
