Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy Oradea CMI Dr. Amelita Tarnaveanu Objective Keeping in mind the increase in colonic recto-pathology in the last decades, with rectocolonic cancer being the second cause of death through neoplastic diseases, the authors have desired to undertake an evaluation of mortality through recto-colonic cancer in a private digestive endoscopy cabinet for a two year period (2008-2010). Material and Method A number of 443 colonoscopies were undertaken in this period, of which 55% on males and 45% on females. Results 1. 2. 3. 4. Repartition based on zoning factors was as follows: 70% urban and 30% rural. The colonic pathology was present as follows: 33% normal and 67% pathological. Anal pathology was present in 20% of cases. The colonic pathology was represented as follows: ulcero-hemorrhagic recto-colitis 3,8%, colonic localised Chron’s disease 5,4%, colonic polyps 25%, recto-colonic cancer 8% and colonic diverticulosis 16%.
Conclusions 1. In about 2/3 of cases, the colonoscopy was pathological, the addressability to investigations being approximately equal in both sexes and predominantly urban. 2. Anal pathology was present in 20% of cases. 3. Chronic polyps were present in 25% of cases, colorectal cancer in 8% of cases and colonic diverticulosis in 16% of cases.
