Emergency colonoscopy
TLDR
Different diagnostic techniques for massive active lower gastrointestinal hemorrhage are reviewed and emergency colonoscopy is a valuable diagnostic tool in cases of massive colorectal bleeding.
Hemorrhoidal bleeding following transrectal prostatic biopsy
Three cases of rectal bleeding within a series of 120 transrectal prostatic biopsies are reported. The precipitating factor was the presence of hemorrhoids which were unsuspected prior to prostatic
Morbidity of ultrasound-guided transrectal core biopsy of the prostate without prophylactic antibiotic therapy. A prospective study in 415 cases.
TLDR
Most complications following TRUS-guided biopsies were minor and required no treatment, and Automated needle biopsy is an acceptable option for biopsy of the prostate and does not provoke the need for prophylactic antibiotic therapy.

TLDR
Antibiotic treatment with 2 tablets of norfloxacin failed to prevent infection and TRUS and core biopsy proved acceptable to most patients, and the only risk factor identified for post-biopsy infection was steroid medication.
