Fortrans® is a laxative in the form of the powder
which is used for making solution for oral application. Laxative effects
are achieved over long linear polymer (polyethylene-glikol - PEG 4000)
which binds water molecules, increasing thus the volume of fluids in the
Material of study comprises 150 irrigographies made at the Institute of
Radiology of the Clinical Centre in Nis in the period from January 2004
to Jun 2005.The preparation in these cases was done by Fortrans®.
The contrast medium used was barium sulfate.
The results of study are presented in illustrations and irrigograms.
In conclusion,we can say that Fortrans® provides
reliable, effective and simple preparation of patients for irrigography
as well as for fast, comfortable and efficient endographic examination
(irrigography). The obtained irrigograms are of satisfactory quality,
showing sharp contrasts. Acta Medica Medianae 2005; 45(1):69–71.
