SitzMarks (County)



Each capsule still has 24 radiopaque markers. The protocol will be as follows, as per the manufacturer:

1. On day 1, direct patient to take one SITZMARKS capsule by mouth with water, preferably with confirmation by office observation. Instruct patient to use no laxatives, enemas or suppositories for 5 days.
2. Arrange a flat plate abdominal X-ray on day 5 to determine the location and extent of elimination of the radiopaque markers.
3. Patients who expel at least 80% (19 or more) of the markers have grossly normal colonic transit.
4. Patients who retain 6 or more markers may have follow-up abdominal X-rays within several days.
