Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 01, 2018

Socio-demographic data, the Charlson Comorbidity Index (CCI), and UEF clinical frailty syndrome classification (non-frail versus pre-frail/frail) were assessed prior to colonoscopy, and acute colonoscopy outcomes were stratified into three severity categories. Logistic regression and ANOVA/ANCOVA were employed. 41% of non-frail had one or more complications, versus 70% of pre-frail/frail group. Those in the pre-frail/frail group had nearly three times the number of acute colonoscopy complication...
