Comparing Early Versus Elective Colonoscopy

Brief description of study

This multi-center, randomized controlled trial study is planned to include 162 outpatients with onset of acute lower gastrointestinal bleeding to compare the rate of identification of stigmata of recent hemorrhage (SRH), and other clinical outcomes, including the 30-day rebleeding rate, between 'early' colonoscopy and 'elective' colonoscopy.

Detailed Study Description

All patients will receive early colonoscopy or elective colonoscopy, but they do so by different timing.

Early colonoscopy will be performed within 24 h of the initial visit. Elective colonoscopy will be performed between 24 and 96 h after the initial visit.

Clinical Study Identifier: NCT03098173
