OBJECTIVES:Many studies around the world addressed the post-colonoscopy complications, but their pooled prevalence and time trends are unknown. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of population-based studies to examine the pooled prevalence of post-colonoscopy complications (“perforation”, “bleeding”, and “mortality”), stratified by colonoscopy indication. Temporal variability in the complication rate was assessed.METHODS:We queried Pubmed, Embase, and the Cochrane library for… 
Risks associated with colonoscopy in a population-based colon screening program: an observational cohort study
TLDR
The rate of serious adverse events associated with colonoscopy in the BCCSP was in keeping with previous publications and met accepted benchmarks, and the findings of this study inform stakeholders of the risks associated with Colon Screening Program in an FIT-based colon screening program.
Patient-reported minor adverse events after colonoscopy: a systematic review
TLDR
In general, patients undergoing colonoscopy have a high response rate to questionnaires about MAEs, and high age and score of American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) classification, female gender and duration of procedure seem to be associated with a higher risk ofMAEs, whereas adequate sedation seems to decreases the risk.
Perforations and bleeding in a population-based cohort of all registered colonoscopies in Sweden from 2001 to 2013
TLDR
There are substantial differences in colonoscopy performance in Sweden, and these differences do not seem to be explained by patient characteristics.
Colonoscopy related adverse events and mortality in an Italian organized colorectal cancer screening program.
TLDR
In an organised screening program, post-colonoscopy AE are a rare but not negligible eventuality, the most frequent is post-polypectomy bleeding, especially after resection of large (≥20mm) and proximal lesions.
Adverse events related to colonoscopy: Global trends and future challenges
TLDR
A structured training program for endoscopists and a systematic national management program are needed to reduce post-colonoscopy complications, as well as the challenges to be addressed through future research.
A register-based study: adverse events in colonoscopies performed in Sweden 2001–2013
TLDR
The perforation rate seemed to be relatively high in an international perspective, and general anaesthesia was associated with a significantly higher risk forperforation.
ASGE review of adverse events in colonoscopy.
TLDR
This document includes an updated systematic review and meta-analysis of serious AEs related to EMR and endoscopic submucosal dissection for large colon polyps and a narrative review of other colonoscopy-relatedserious AEs and those related to specific colonic interventions is included.
Low Rates of Gastrointestinal and Non-Gastrointestinal Complications for Screening or Surveillance Colonoscopies in a Population-Based Study.
TLDR
In a population-based study in California, it was found that following S-colo, rates of serious GI adverse events were low but clinically relevant, and that rates of myocardial infarction, stroke, and serious pulmonary events were no higher than after low-risk comparator procedures.
Characteristics of Patients with Post-Colonoscopy Unplanned Hospital Visit: A Retrospective Single-Center Observational Study
TLDR
It is highlighted that unplanned visits within 7 days of colonoscopy are not necessarily related to the procedure, and those that are, tend to be due to unavoidable patient factors, and the CMS measure may not be an accurate determinant of the quality of procedure or facility care delivered.
Risk of colonoscopic post-polypectomy bleeding in patients on single antiplatelet therapy: systematic review with meta-analysis
TLDR
Uninterrupted single antiplatelet therapy may increase the risk of PPB, but the evidence is very uncertain, however, in deciding to discontinue APAs before colonoscopy with polypectomy, the potential higher risk of major adverse cardiovascular events should be assessed.

Adverse events in older patients undergoing colonoscopy: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Elderly patients, especially octogenarians, appear to have a higher risk of complications during and after colonoscopy and these data should inform clinical decision making, the consent process, public health policy, and comparative effectiveness analyses.
Bleeding and perforation after outpatient colonoscopy and their risk factors in usual clinical practice.
TLDR
Although colonoscopy has established benefits for the detection of colorectal cancer and adenomatous polyps, the procedure is associated with risks of serious complications, including death, according to a population-based study.

TLDR
Colonoscopy completion and complication rates in this community gastroenterology practice compared favorably with U.S. academic centers and endoscopic quality in community practices can meet published outcomes.

TLDR
Based on meta-analysis, approximately 1 in 27 CRCs are interval CRCs, although the confidence in these estimates is low because of the heterogeneity among the studies.
The current practice standard for colonoscopy in Australia.
TLDR
The majority of this cohort performs cold-snare polypectomy for diminutive polyps and pass high-risk, poorly visualized areas twice on withdrawal, a significant shift in practice from that of the U.S. cohort studied 10 years earlier.

TLDR
Colonoscopy in the elderly is safe and effective with a high diagnostic yield and may now be the imaging modality of choice inThe elderly population.
Risk factors for early colonoscopic perforation include non-gastroenterologist endoscopists: a multivariable analysis.
TLDR
Non-gastroenterologist specialty was found to affect risk for perforations detected during or immediately after colonoscopy, which could result from differences in volume and style of endoscopy training.

TLDR
A consistent body of evidence shows that having a colonoscopy performed by a nongastroenterologist is associated with increased risk of adverse outcomes, and the inescapable conclusion is that colonoscopies performed by gastroenterologists are of higher quality than those performed by other physicians.
