Bowel Prep

by Etienne Moore — last modified 2007-04-02 18:05

This is a term to describe a dose of laxatives given to a patient to clean out part of the bowel before a procedure is undertaken.  It helps in removing faecal material so that it is easier to visualise the part of the bowel being investigated.
