All medical procedures carry some risk. The risks of PillCam® capsule endoscopy include capsule retention, aspiration, or skin irritation. PillCam COLON capsule endoscopy presents additional risks, including risks associated with the drug products used to prepare the patient for the procedure, which are currently used for colonoscopy, and to move the capsule through the patient’s digestive tract faster. Medical, endoscopic, or surgical intervention may be necessary to address any of these complications, should they occur.
