Based on analysis of 2200 patients with obturation intestinal obstruction on the background of colon cancer the place and role of endoscopy are shown.

Urgent fibrocolonoscopy was performed to124 (12,1%) patients with cancer of the left sided colon complicated by acute intestinal obstruction. Cancer of the left third of the transverse colon was revealed at 11, splenic flexure - at 26, the descending colon - at 33, the sigmoid colon - 47, rectal sigmoid part - 38 and rectum - in 29 patients. In 17 (13,7%) patients it was possible torecanalizedstenosing tumor and eliminate intestinal obstruction. Delayed fibrocolonoscopy (n = 221) was performed on 5 - 8 hours after the formation of double-barrel colostomy for exact diagnosis or biopsy for histological examination.

Performing of urgent colonoscopy in patients with colonic obstruction allows to set its cause and the level of obstruction.
