BACKGROUND The usefulness of purgative preparation before small-bowel video capsule endoscopy is controversial. We aimed to examine the effect of purgative preparation on small-bowel video capsule endoscopy outcomes. METHODS We performed literature searches in MEDLINE and the Cochrane library for randomized controlled trials evaluating the effect of purgative preparation (polyethylene glycol, sodium phosphate, others) vs. clear-liquid diet/fasting in patients undergoing small-bowel capsule… Expand
Bowel Preparation for Small Bowel Capsule Endoscopy: Is There Still a Role for Polyethylene Glycol?
TLDR
Bowel cleansing with PEG 2 L is not superior to fasting for overall DY in SBCE, but P EG 2 L may confer an advantage for the detection of significant lesions in patient with IDA. Expand
Value of the diving method for capsule endoscopy in the examination of small-intestinal disease: a prospective randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
The diving method for VCE examination effectively improves the endoscopic view in the proximal and middle thirds of the small bowel, as well as the positive findings in distal small intestine, and increases the completion rate. Expand
Purgative Small Bowel Preparation for Capsule Endoscopy? Maybe, but Think Out of the Box!
TLDR
It is proposed to walk unknown and less comfortable paths, to examine the value of administrating purgatives after capsule ingestion, and to think out of the box to look if a properly conducted study can prove that a purgative approach can improve examinations diagnostic yield, as well. Expand
Ideal Method for Small Bowel Preparation before Video Capsule Endoscopy
TLDR
This study had significant limitations such as retrospective design, substantial difference in registration period and indications between the two groups, and low validation as a result of unblinded peer review of the manuscript by only one clinician, but has a relatively large sample size that can support the validation. Expand
The Efficacy of 4 Liters of Clear Liquids for Small Bowel Preparation Prior to Video Capsule Endoscopy
TLDR
This study supports the growing evidence of the effectiveness of a 4-liter clear liquid SB preparation as opposed to PEG for VCE, with significantly higher mean image quality scores when using a specified volume of 4 liters of clear liquid. Expand
Clear Liquids versus Polyethylene Glycol Preparation for Video Capsule Endoscopy of the Small Bowel: A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
Four liters of clear liquids should be considered a routine method for small bowel preparation prior to VCE by comparing the efficacy of 4 L ofclear liquids, 2 L of polyethylene glycol (PEG), and4 L of PEG on the image quality of VCE. Expand
Magnetic Steering of Capsule Endoscopy Improves Small Bowel Capsule Endoscopy Completion Rate
TLDR
Magnetic steering of capsule endoscopy improves small bowel CECR by reducing GTT, adding further support to MCE as a practical tool for noninvasive examination of both the stomach and small bowel. Expand
KODA score: an updated and validated bowel preparation scale for patients undergoing small bowel capsule endoscopy
TLDR
Almost perfect inter-rater and intra- rater reliability was observed for the KODA score, and this simple score could be used for future clinical trials after completion of the training module. Expand
Lavage, Simethicone, and Prokinetics—What to Swallow with a Video Capsule
TLDR
The development of new capsules now allows endoscopic diagnosis in all segments of the gastrointestinal tract and comes with new needs for differentiated preparation regimens, especially for colon capsule and pan-intestinal capsule endoscopy. Expand
Assessment of the Role of a Second Evaluation of Capsule Endoscopy Recordings to Improve Diagnostic Yield and Patient Management
Introduction: The diagnostic yield (DY) of small-bowel capsule endoscopy (SBCE) varies considerably according to its indication. Some strategies have been used to increase DY with varying results.Expand

Meta-analysis: efficacy of small bowel preparation for small bowel video capsule endoscopy
TLDR
PEG-based regimens offer a clear advantage in these patients, while the currently available evidence base does not support the use of NaP, according to a systematic review of the literature and meta-analysis. Expand
Does Purgative Preparation Influence the Diagnostic Yield of Small Bowel Video Capsule Endoscopy?: A Meta-Analysis
TLDR
Pooled data showed that in comparison to clear liquids diet, purgative bowel cleansing, before VCE, improves the SBVQ and increases the DY of the examination, but does not affect the VCE completion rate. Expand
Should bowel preparation, antifoaming agents, or prokinetics be used before video capsule endoscopy? A systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Bowel preparation with polyethylene glycol and simethicone appears to be the best approach for small bowel preparation before VCE, however, large multicenter randomized-controlled trials are needed to validate this recommendation and to evaluate the ideal dose of PEG and timing of bowel preparationbefore VCE. Expand
Bowel preparation increases the diagnostic yield of capsule endoscopy: a prospective, randomized, controlled study.
TLDR
Bowel preparation before capsule endoscopy improves visualization of the small intestine, which may lead to an improvement in diagnostic yield, according to a prospective, randomized, and controlled study. Expand
Capsule endoscopy and bowel preparation with oral sodium phosphate: a prospective randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
The results of the present study did not support that small-bowel preparation with oral NaP can be recommended for CE exploration in patients with OGB, and a significant number of limitations were found. Expand
Optimal use of polyethylene glycol for preparation of small bowel video capsule endoscopy: a network meta-analysis
TLDR
This study recommends PEG 2 L as the ideal dose, which may improve the SBVQ of VCE and, therefore, diagnostic accuracy, and multi-center randomized controlled trials are required to verify these findings. Expand
Evaluation of Different Bowel Preparations for Small Bowel Capsule Endoscopy: A Prospective, Randomized, Controlled Study
TLDR
A clear liquid diet and overnight fasting is sufficient to achieve an adequate level of cleanliness and is better tolerated by patients than other forms of preparation. Expand

TLDR
Capsule endoscopy preparation improves the quality of small bowel visualization, but has no effect on transit times, or demonstration of the cecum. Expand
Systematic review and meta-analysis: is bowel preparation still necessary in small bowel capsule endoscopy?
TLDR
Laxatives do not significantly improve DY or CR in SBCE, but do improve SBQV, suggesting the use of laxatives may be beneficial in patients likely to have subtle findings. Expand
Bowel Preparation for Capsule Endoscopy: A Prospective Randomized Multicenter Study
TLDR
Bowel preparation with NaP for capsule endoscopy improved small-bowel mucosal visualization when compared to 12-h overnight fasting. Expand
