Gastroscopy is a scan that allows direct visualization of the upper part of the digestive tract (esophagus, stomach, and duodenum), using a thin flexible tube.

 

In addition to being a diagnostic method, gastroscopy has an essential therapeutic aspect.

 

Through the endoscope channel, we can pass a variety of instruments, which allows acting on various injuries: dilation of stenotic (narrow) areas, removal of polyps, removal of foreign bodies, treatment of hemorrhage foci, etc.

 

This makes it possible to avoid or reduce the need for transfusions and the use of surgery in a large number of patients.

During a colonoscopy the patient will be on their side on the research bench. The doctor brings the endoscope through the patient’s anus in his rectum and gently pushes the endoscope further into the patient’s gut.

When the endoscope arrives at the last part of the patient’s colon, and the small intestine begins, the examination starts. The doctor then gently withdraws the endoscope. During this withdrawal, the doctor carefully examines the intestinal walls.

Sometimes the intestinal wall or mucous membrane of the intestine is not visible. Air is used to open the walls via the endoscope. The intestine is therefore wide open. This condition can cause painful intestinal cramps.

When the term "endoscopy" is mentioned, most people automatically think of upper endoscopy or EGD (esophagogastroduodenoscopy). EGD is a procedure to diagnose and treat problems in your upper gastrointestinal (GI) tract. While this is a very common and popular type of endoscopy, in truth, there are a vast number of conditions and areas of the body where endoscopy is a very effective diagnostic and treatment option.
