Abstract

Improved utilization of surgical interventions to improve patient outcomes has led to an increased need to endoscopically evaluate and treat the bowel after surgery. The best outcomes are attained when the endoscopist coordinates with the surgeon, and in some cases the pathologist or radiologist to plan the procedure. Understanding the anatomy and pathology anticipated can allow planning for sedation, bowel cleanse and equipment needed. Surgically altered anatomy can create challenges that with planning can be overcome. This article will review how to prepare and navigate several of the most commonly encountered surgical interventions.
