dc.description.abstractAbstract Introduction: Screening colonoscopies are recommended for the detection and prevention of colon cancer. Liquid colonoscopy preparations may be poorly tolerated. We evaluated the adequacy and tolerability of a novel low-cost colonoscopy preparation consisting of magnesium citrate capsules and bisacodyl (MCCB). Methods: This is a single-center, assessor-blinded, randomized controlled trial of 51 patients undergoing screening colonoscopies, who received a bowel preparation of either 4 liters of GoLYTELY (Braintree Laboratories, Inc., Braintree, MA) or MCCB. The primary outcome was the rate of adequate colon cleanliness, defined as a total score ≥ 6 on the Boston Bowel Preparation Scale and no colon segment with a score of zero. The secondary outcome was patient satisfaction, assessed by a validated questionnaire. Results: A total of 100% of patients in both arms achieved adequate colon cleanliness, and the magnesium citrate arm had superior patient satisfaction (mean satisfaction score: 54.8 vs. 172.8; p < 0.001). Conclusions: A pill-based colonoscopy preparation of MCCB may be a low-cost option for patients reluctant to consume a liquid preparation.en_US
