Core Tip Constipation is a common medical problem, especially in the elderly population. Diagnosis of constipation includes history, physical examination, and basic laboratory analyses. Colonoscopy is not a necessary diagnostic method for all patients with constipation. It is indicated if alarm symptoms and signs are present. Colonoscopy in patients with constipation is often compromised by factors that cause “difficult colonoscopy,” as well as poor bowel preparation. Colonoscopy under sedation is of great importance, but it cannot replace a good examination technique. If a total colonoscopy is not possible, it is necessary to repeat the examination or perform a virtual colonoscopy.
