In order to evaluate the feasibility of performing double-contrast barium enemas in the elderly, a consecutive series of 310 patients above 60 years of age referred for barium enema examinations was analyzed relative to the rate of successful studies. There was an overall success rate of 94.8%. There was a 99% success rate in patients in the seventh decade, 94.9% in the eighth decade, and a 90% success rate in patients 80 years and over. A conclusion is reached that the double-contrast barium enema examination is feasible in the elderly.
