It is discussed whether the use of a magnetic positioning device (OLYMPUS; UPD (unit of magnetic positioning device)) enhances the success of the colonoscopic procedure. Concern for patient compliance and endoscopic efficiency has been voiced in connection with the implementation of colon cancer screening. UPD has been proposed as a tool for optimization of results and reduction of patient discomfort. In this study, we aimed to qualify the debate by examining the success rate and patient discomfort in an unselected colonoscopy population referred to specialist clinics with experienced investigators. Furthermore, the study assessed the effect of using a UPD.
