Endoscopy Procedure:

Introduction: What is Endoscopy?

Endoscopy is a nonsurgical procedure done to examine a person's digestive tract. In this a long, thin tube is inserted into the body to observe the internal organ or tissue in detail.

Endoscopy Features:

Endoscopes have been developed for many parts of the body. Each has its own name, depending on the part of the body it is intended to investigate, such as:

  • Bronchoscope – inserted down the trachea (windpipe) to examine the lung.
  • Colonoscope – inserted through the anus to examine the colon (bowel).
  • Gastroscope – inserted down the oesophagus to examine the stomach.

Endoscopy Indications and Procedures:

Investigate symptoms- Nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, difficulty swallowing and gastrointestinal bleeding.

Diagnose - Anaemia, bleeding, inflammation, diarrhoea or cancers of the digestive system.

Treat- A bleeding vessel to stop bleeding, widening a narrow oesophagus, clipping off a polyp or removing a foreign object.

Advantages of Endoscopy:

  • No scar – as a natural body opening is used.
  • Quick recovery time.
  • Less time in hospital.
