An effective rectal administration method in the left semiprone position 

Satoshi Awazu, Nagasaki, Japan   
  It was often observed that the rectosigmoid colon more nearly overlapped with the sigmoid-descending colon junction when the patient was placed in the left semiprone position in the single-contrast enema examination.
  Therefore, we considered that the rectosigmoid colon is located in the highest position while the sigmoid-descending colon junction is located in the lowest position and various kinds of drugs can be readily administered into the proximal colon in the left semiprone position.
