Abstract

Enteroclysis is generally considered the method of choice for evaluating the small intestine radiographically. The combined procedure of enteroscopy and enteroclysis has been recently described as complimentary techniques for examining the small intestine. This report describes the use of a balloon catheter placed via the enteroscope, which simplifies intubation and further improves the quality of enteroclysis study.
