They are distinguished from ANTISEPTICS, which are local anti-infective agents used on humans and other animals. (From Hawley's Condensed Chemical Dictionary, 11th ed)

Management and outcome of patients undergoing surgery after acute upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage. Steering Group for the National Audit of Acute Upper Gastrointestinal Haemorrhage. (1/1306)

Most patients with acute upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage are managed conservatively or with endoscopic intervention but some ultimately require surgery to arrest the haemorrhage. We have conducted a population-based multicentre prospective observational study of management and outcomes. This paper concerns the subgroup of 307 patients who had an operation because of continued or recurrent haemorrhage or high risk of further bleeding. The principal diagnostic group was those with peptic ulcer. Of 2071 patients with peptic ulcer presenting with acute haemorrhage, 251 (12%) had an operative intervention with a mortality of 24%. In the non-operative group mortality was 10%. The operative intervention rate increased with risk score, ranging from 0% in the lowest risk categories to 38% in the highest. Much of the discrepancy between operative and non-operative mortality was explainable by case mix; however, for high-risk cases mortality was significantly higher in the operated group. In 78% of patients who underwent an operation for bleeding peptic ulcer there had been no previous attempt at endoscopic haemostasis. For patients admitted to surgical units, the operative intervention rate was about four times higher than for those admitted under medical teams. In patients with acute upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage operative intervention is infrequent and largely confined to the highest-risk patients. The continuing high mortality in surgically treated patients is therefore to be expected. The reasons for the low use of endoscopic treatment before surgery are not revealed by this study, but wider use of such treatments might further reduce the operative intervention rate. Physicians and surgeons have not yet reached consensus on who needs surgery and when.  (+info)

The one-stop dyspepsia clinic--an alternative to open-access endoscopy for patients with dyspepsia. (2/1306)

The most sensitive investigative tool for the upper gastrointestinal tract is endoscopy, and many gastroenterologists offer an open-access endoscopy service to general practitioners. However, for patients with dyspepsia, endoscopy is not always the most appropriate initial investigation, and the one-stop dyspepsia clinic allows for different approaches. We have audited, over one year, the management and outcomes of patients attending a one-stop dyspepsia clinic. All patients seen in the clinic were included, and for those not endoscoped the notes were reviewed one year after the end of the study to check for reattendances and diagnoses originally missed. Patients' and general practitioners' views of the service were assessed by questionnaire. 485 patients were seen, of whom 301 (62%) were endoscoped at first attendance. In 66 patients (14%), endoscopy was deemed inappropriate and only one of these returned subsequently for endoscopy. 118 patients (24%) were symptom-free when seen in the clinic and were asked to telephone for an appointment if and when symptoms recurred; half of these returned and were endoscoped. Oesophagitis and duodenal ulcer were significantly more common in this 'telephone endoscopy' group than in those endoscoped straight from the clinic. Overall, 25% of patients referred were not endoscoped. Important additional diagnoses were made from the clinic consultation. General practitioners and patients valued the system, in particular the telephone endoscopy service. 84% of general practitioners said they would prefer the one-stop dyspepsia clinic to open-access endoscopy.  (+info)

Is routine histological evaluation an accurate test for Helicobacter pylori infection? (3/1306)

AIM: To compare the diagnostic accuracy of routine histology for Helicobacter pylori infection, with histology by an expert pathologist, and to compare histology with the rapid urease test (RUT), 13C-urea breath test, IgG serology and culture of antrum and corpus specimens, in a consecutive series of untreated patients presenting for upper oesophago-gastro-duodenoscopy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: One-hundred and fifteen consecutive patients underwent multiple tests for H. pylori infection: rapid urease test, 13C-urea breath test, IgG serology and histology and culture on antrum and corpus biopsy specimens. Histology was first evaluated by the pathologists in a routine examination, and then blindly reviewed by an expert pathologist with a special interest in gastrointestinal pathology. The patients were considered to be H. pylori-positive if two or more tests were positive. RESULTS: Eighty-one patients (70.4%) were found to be H. pylori positive. 13C-urea breath test and IgG serology showed the best sensitivity and specificity (100%). Both the antral and body cultures, and the rapid urease test had the highest specificity (100%). Histological diagnosis after re-evaluation by an expert pathologist showed a high sensitivity (98. 8%) and specificity (100%), and was better than routine histology (sensitivity 92.6%; specificity 90.3%). The accuracy of the rapid urease test was greater than that of routine histology, and the combination of these two tests improved the sensitivity of H. pylori detection to up to 100%. CONCLUSION: All diagnostic tests usually utilised in clinical practice have a sensitivity higher than 90%. In patients who were not pre-treated with antisecretory agents or antibiotics, the sensitivity of histological diagnosis, however, seems to be influenced by the accuracy of the histological examination. The sensitivity of routine histology, but not of revised histological diagnosis, is improved by an additional rapid urease test.  (+info)

Prescription of acid-suppressing drugs in relation to endoscopic diagnosis: a record-linkage study. (4/1306)

BACKGROUND: Although widely used, few data are available on the appropriateness of prescribing of acid-suppressing drugs (ASDs), despite guidelines on the investigation and treatment of dyspeptic patients. METHODS: We created a database of 62 000 endoscopy examinations and record-linked these to a prescribing database. Endoscopic diagnoses were classified into peptic, nonpeptic and others. The H2-antagonists, omeprazole and misoprostol, were studied. RESULTS: 35 000 patients had one or more endoscopies during 1978-93; two-thirds were over 45 years of age at first endoscopy. A quarter of all patients who had been endoscoped had consistently normal examinations. Peptic oesophageal pathology was the commonest positive finding. A quarter of those prescribed ASDs between 1989 and 1993 had been endoscoped between 1978 and 1993. In those with a peptic diagnosis prescribed any ASD, the pathologies found were: oesophageal (42.9%), duodenal (36.3%) and gastro-pyloric (21.3%). Patients prescribed omeprazole were more likely to have undergone endoscopy than those prescribed other ASDs, and they were also more likely to have peptic oesophageal pathology. Long-term prescribing (>56 days per year) occurred in two-thirds of patients prescribed ASDs and 40% had at least one endoscopy. In those prescribed short-term ASDs, 20% had undergone at least one endoscopy. Peptic and nonpeptic endoscopic pathology was associated with increased ASD prescribing, but a normal endoscopy did not reduce prescribing. CONCLUSION: ASD prescribing appeared to be mainly symptom-driven. Positive endoscopic findings increased the prescribing of ASDs, but normal findings did not reduce it.  (+info)

Two way push videoenteroscopy in investigation of small bowel disease. (5/1306)

AIMS: To evaluate the diagnostic yield and safety of a new push type videoenteroscope (PVE) for diagnosis of small bowel disease. METHODS: Three hundred and thirteen patients were referred for one or two way PVE from December 1993 to June 1996. Indications for PVE were: an unexplained iron deficiency anaemia with or without clinically evident gastrointestinal bleeding; or a complementary investigation for suspected small bowel disease, after a small bowel barium follow through (SBBFT) considered as normal or abnormal, but without a definite diagnosis. RESULTS: A jejunoscopy and a retrograde ileoscopy were carried out in 306 and 234 patients, respectively. In patients with isolated anaemia (n = 131) and those with clinically evident gastrointestinal bleeding associated anaemia (n = 72), PVE provided a diagnosis in 26 (19.8%) and 22 (30.5%) cases, respectively. Lesions found were located in the jejunoileum in 30 (14.7%) patients and in the gastroduodenum or the colon in 18 (8.8%) patients--that is, within the reach of the conventional gastroscope/colonoscope. In patients with normal (n = 54) or abnormal (n = 56) SBBFT, PVE provided a diagnosis in 17 (31%) and 27 (48%) cases, respectively. In 25% of cases, the abnormal appearance of SBBFT was not confirmed. The site of the radiological abnormality was not reached in 27% of cases. Lesions were located at the jejunum and the ileum in 59 (64%) and 33 (36%) cases, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: PVE is useful in around 30% of cases of unexplained anaemia or after an SBBFT which failed to provide an accurate aetiological diagnosis. Use of retrograde videoenteroscopy increases diagnostic yield by one third.  (+info)

Prospective evaluation for upper gastrointestinal tract acute graft-versus-host disease after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. (6/1306)

The incidence and clinical significance of upper gastrointestinal tract acute graft-versus-host disease (upper GI GVHD) were prospectively evaluated in 44 Japanese patients who underwent allogeneic (n = 26) or autologous (n = 18) stem cell transplantation. Endoscopic examination was routinely performed between days 20 and 50 post-transplant and when symptoms of upper GI and/or acute GVHD of other organs were present. The results were compared with the historical records of 49 allograft and 20 autograft recipients. The diagnosis of upper GI GVHD was confirmed by histologic findings of GVHD and persistent upper GI tract symptoms. The incidence of upper GI GVHD was 46% in the prospective allograft group, higher than in the retrospective group. Upper GI GVHD was not diagnosed in any autograft patients. Twelve of 19 patients with upper GI GVHD had skin GVHD, and two of the 12 had concurrent lower GI GVHD. Upper GI GVHD was successfully treated with steroids and did not progress to symptomatic lower GI GVHD. In addition, upper GI GVHD completely resolved without specific alteration in immunosuppressant therapy in six patients. No risk factors for upper GI GVHD could be identified. The presence of upper GI GVHD did not significantly affect early death rate, incidence of chronic GVHD, and overall survival. In conclusion, by the prospective evaluation of the upper GI tract by endoscopy we could accurately diagnose upper GI GVHD in half our allogeneic recipients. However, upper GI GVHD was successfully controlled with or without additional steroids in all cases and had little impact on transplant outcome.  (+info)

Total gastrointestinal endoscopy in the management of Peutz-Jeghers syndrome. (7/1306)

Peutz-Jeghers syndrome was diagnosed in a 51-year-old woman presenting with iron deficiency anaemia. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and colonoscopy revealed several hamartomatous polyps in the stomach, duodenum and colon, which were removed. At a combined surgical-endoscopic procedure, 42 hamartomatous polyps were removed from the small intestine by snare polypectomy. This enteroscopic procedure reduces symptoms, may protect against future intestinal obstructive episodes and their associated surgery, and may reduce the risk of developing gastrointestinal malignancy.  (+info)

Presence of eubacteria in biopsies from Crohn's disease inflammatory lesions as determined by 16S rRNA gene-based PCR. (8/1306)

The aim of this study was to search for putative microbial agents in Crohn's disease (CD) tissues by bacterial broad-range 16S rDNA PCR combined with genus- and species-specific DNA hybridisation analysis. Biopsies taken both surgically and endoscopically from the terminal ileum of 11 CD patients and 11 control patients were investigated. Significant amounts of eubacteria were demonstrated in biopsies taken endoscopically from both affected and unaffected individuals; the biopsies taken at surgery from control patients were negative. Three of five biopsies taken surgically from CD patients harboured Helicobacter spp.-, Mycobacterium paratuberculosis-, Listeria monocytogenes- and Escherichia coli-like 16S rDNA sequences. These findings show the importance of the sampling method chosen when combined with molecular typing of eubacteria in intestinal tissues. The mixed bacterial flora found in the surgical biopsies from CD patients supports the idea that the enteric microflora enters primary lesions where secondary bacterial colonisers may elicit a chronic inflammatory syndrome.  (+info)

TEST USES. An upper GI endoscopy may be ordered for several reasons. It may be used to identify digestive or inflammatory diseases and infections. It is helpful for determining the cause of bleeding, swallowing difficulties, and pain. It is used to detect abnormalities including tumors, narrowing of the esophagus, and obstructions. Additionally, an endoscope is used for taking photographs, obtaining tissue samples, surgically removing polyps, and to treat bleeding. An upper GI endoscopy can sometimes eliminate the need for an exploratory surgery.. PREPARATION. An upper GI endoscopy is an outpatient procedure that can be performed at a doctors office or a hospital. Another person will need to drive you home because you will receive sedation medication for the procedure. You should not eat or drink for several hours before the test. You may need to stop taking aspirin or blood thinning medications a few days prior to your procedure. Your doctor will provide you with specific instructions. THE ...
The term endoscopy refers to a special technique for looking inside a part of the body. Upper GI is the portion of the gastrointestinal tract, the digestive system, that includes the esophagus the stomach, and the duodenum, the beginning of the small intestine. The esophagus carries food from the mouth for digestion in the stomach and small intestine.. Upper GI endoscopy is a procedure performed by a gastroenterologist a well-trained specialist who uses the endoscope to diagnose and, in some cases treat problems of the upper digestive system.. The endoscope is a long, thin, flexible tube with a tiny video camera and light on the end. By adjusting the various controls on the endoscope, the gastroenterologist can safely guide the instrument to carefully examine the inside lining of the upper digestive system.. The high-quality picture from the endoscope is shown on a TV monitor; it gives a clear, detailed view. In many cases, upper GI endoscopy is a more precise examination than X-ray ...

Upper GI endoscopy (also known as gastroscopy, oesophagogastroduodenoscopy or OGD) is a procedure that enables me to examine the lining of your oesophagus (swallowing tube or gullet), stomach and duodenum (first portion of the small intestine). A flexible tube about the thickness of your little finger is guided carefully and slowly through your mouth and into the stomach and duodenum.
Upper GI endoscopy and colonoscopy are two safe procedures of the digestive system. They can be used to diagnose and treat medical problems in the stomach and small and large intestines.
Upper GI endoscopy and colonoscopy are simple procedures that allow your health care provider to look inside your digestive tract. They help to discover certain diseases, such as ulcers, cancer, and inflammatory diseases.
An upper GI endoscopy and colonoscopy is usually a safe and effective way of finding out if there is a problem with your digestive system.

Explains the upper gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy procedure and reasons for its use to find and treat problems in the upper GI tract.
Since November 1995, the Korean Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (KSGE) has launched a board of gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy specialists, and many gastroenterologists have obtained the privilege of being GI endoscopists. The KSGE has established the goals and guidelines for educating trainees in 2011, and an updated version for both endoscopic faculties and trainees is now required to meet the need to catch up to the recent rapid changes in clinical practice [1]. GI endoscopy is the most valuable and final diagnostic tool used in gastroenterology. Education of endoscopic skills is an essential portion of the GI fellowship training program. The GI endoscopic field is now sub-classified as a part of the diagnostic and therapeutic procedures for the GI tract, including esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), colonoscopy, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), and endoscopic ultrasound (EUS). Small bowel endoscopies, including balloon-assisted and capsule endoscopies, are now ...
Physicians, in consultation with their patients, are in the best position to identify the appropriate mode of diagnosis and course of treatment. This bill attempts to substitute the judgment of physicians by requiring a procedure, TNE, which has significant diagnostic limitations relative to upper GI endoscopy. Upper GI endoscopy and TNE are safe and effective, but TNE is not adequate for many uses in diagnosing diseases of the digestive tract. It is inappropriate and over-reaching for Assembly Member Weprin or the New York State Assembly to dictate which tests are available to patients with gastrointestinal symptoms. Our organizations stand together against this attempt to legislate the practice of medicine ...
Having questioned the value of therapeutic endoscopy, let me question the value of diagnostic endoscopy, having lived through the days from when it was not available to its current status. Having given the matter considerable thought,1 I seriously doubt that it has been of any value. It might even have had an adverse effect on outcome by delaying operative intervention in those who need it and among whom most deaths occur.. If done emergently it is difficult to visualise the bleeding site, especially in those who require surgery and whose rate of blood loss is greatest. Its greatest value may be in excluding the presence of oesophageal bleeding from varices but this is arguably best done on the operating table by the surgeon. In the UK, many centres no longer perform endoscopy emergently preferring to wait until the bleeding has stopped and a better diagnostic evaluation can be made on the daily endoscopy list. This may be good for documentation but is of doubtful benefit in managing patients ...

Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy is the most preferable diagnostic examination for patients over fifty when upper gastrointestinal symptoms appear. However, limited knowledge exists in concerns to the compliance of primary care patients to the doctors recommendations for endoscopy. Patients who visited primary care practices in Greece and experienced upper gastrointestinal symptoms within a 10 days screening study, were referred for an upper endoscopy exam. The patients which refused to complete the endoscopy exam, were interviewed by the use of an open- ended translated and validated questionnaire, the Identification of Dyspepsia in General Population (IDGP) questionnaire. A qualitative thematic analysis grounded on the theory of planned behavior was performed to reveal the reasons for patients refusal, while socio-demographic predictors were also assessed. Nine hundred and ninety two patients were recorded, 159 of them (16%) were found positive for dyspepsia and gastro-esophageal reflux disease

Your doctor might start by spraying your throat with a local anesthetic or by giving you a sedative to help you relax. Youll then lie on your side, and your doctor will pass the endoscope through your mouth and into the esophagus, stomach and duodenum. The endoscope doesnt interfere with your breathing, Most patients consider the test only slightly uncomfortable, and many patients fall asleep during the procedure.. You will be monitored until most of the effects of the medication have worn off. Your throat might be a little sore, and you might feel bloated because of the air introduced into your stomach during the test. You will be able to eat after you leave unless your doctor instructs you otherwise.. Your physician will explain the results of the examination to you, although youll probably have to wait for the results of any biopsies performed..

The purpose of this study is to assess the utility of the ExSpiron Respiratory Variation Monitor in patients undergoing an interventional procedure with anesthesia. The primary outcome measure will be the average minute ventilation of the patient during the procedure. This study will also examine the correlation between clinical interventions such as drug administrations or airway maneuvers with data from the monitor. Additionally the study may provide information about the ability of this new monitoring system to prevent hypoxemia during these procedures and to consider its utility, compared with capnography, to detect hypopnea.. Background Assessing the adequacy of ventilation during Monitored Anesthesia Care (MAC) and sedation is difficult. Agents used to provide procedural sedation can depress ventilatory drive and can interfere with airway patency, making it much more likely that the patient will hypoventilate and experience partial or complete obstruction to ventilation. [It is actually ...

There are substantial changes in store for lower GI endoscopy procedures in 2015. Here are 12 things to know about the revisions, according to the American Gastroenterological Association.
The pandemic emergency measures drastically affected the activity of the endoscopy units.1 Our study demonstrated that non-urgent endoscopic procedures decreased by 72.9% with a 57.9% reduction of diagnosed lesions, similar to what reported by Rutter et al.2 Colonoscopy has been the most affected examination, followed by upper GI endoscopy, and lastly by HPB procedures. HPB endoscopy is generally performed following the identification of suspicious lesions by means of advanced imaging. Indeed, ERCP for malignancy decreased by 18.3%, representing the lowest value reported in our study.. As expected, we observed a greater reduction in upper GI diagnostic endoscopies compared with therapeutic ones. Notably, chronic functional disorders represent a frequent indication for endoscopies in general practice that can be safely deferred if no alarm signs are associated.3 Moreover, the procedures conducted during the lockdown period were mainly due to the presence of alarm symptoms, thus selecting patients ...

UW Medicine Eastside Specialty Center is the first UW Medicine facility on the Eastside to offer advanced tests such as gastrointestinal endoscopy. Many patients with gastrointestinal symptoms require a test that can see inside the esophagus, stomach, and small and large intestines to locate the cause for their discomfort. Diseases and conditions such as ulcers, celiac disease, polyps, tumors and inflammatory bowel disease require direct visualization of the lining of the bowel in order to make a correct diagnosis.. An endoscopy is a minimally-invasive procedure that enables physicians to see inside these areas of the body. An endoscope is a flexible, narrow tube that can easily be threaded into the stomach or intestine without an incision. At the end of the endoscope, a light source and high-definition camera enable the physician to see and record images of the organs of the body. While some patients request to remain awake during an endoscopy, most patients choose to be sedated to ensure that ...

BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS Standardization of the endoscopic report is a key issue for future research in the field of digestive endoscopy. The Minimal Standard Terminology (MST) has been proposed by the European Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) as a structured language for production of computerized endoscopic reports. The aim of this study was to validate version 1.0 of this terminology prospectively, by collecting cases in a multicenter, multilingual trial. METHODS Endoscopic cases (esophagogastroduodenoscopy [EGD], colonoscopy, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography [ERCP]) were prospectively collected in nine university hospitals in Europe, using the same software. Reports were produced in the local language, but the software allowed comparison of reports between languages, and global analysis of the database. Outcome measures were the adequacy of terms proposed in the MST to describe reasons for performing an endoscopy, findings, and endoscopic diagnoses, frequency of
Stenting: A stent is often used to open up a passageway, such as in patients with inoperable esophageal cancer. The endoscope is an excellent way to deploy the stent into the thinnest passageways in the GI tract, allowing access to areas that may otherwise be impassable.. As you can see, a therapeutic endoscopy can be a very useful tool for your GI or bariatric doctor to use in treating all forms of illness or pain in the GI system. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Dr. Dirks office. With treatments like therapeutic endoscopy, there is no reason to live with untreated GI pain.. Sources.

bjective: Esophageal tumors arising in the muscularis propria are difficult to be resected endoscopically using standard electro surgical techniques, even the endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) technique appeared recently. Our purpose is to investigate the efficacy of endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-assisted tunnel-type ESD for resection of these tumors. Methods: A total of 17 patients were included in this study. A standard endoscope was used. The submucosal tunnel was created with the triangle knife according to the standard ESD technique, about 5 cm proximal to the lesion. EUS was performed within the tunnel to detect the tumor, and then the tumor was separated both from the submucosal and the muscle layers. After the tumor was removed, several clips were used to close the mucosal defect. EUS was performed to evaluate the healing quality 1 week after the procedure. Result: In all the cases, the tumors were completely resected. Mean tumor size was 24.2 mm (12-50 mm) in diameter. The histo ...

Medical radiation is widely used in both medical imaging and radiation treatment. In medical imaging, fluoroscopy employs radiation to show a continuous X-ray image on a monitor and plays a major role in the daily practices of gastroenterology, digestive endoscopy, and hepatobiliary and pancreatic studies. Radiological medical imaging has both benefits and drawbacks for patients. The latter is split into two types: deterministic risks,1 determined by the threshold dose, as represented by skin injury and stochastic risks, determined by a linear no-threshold model, such as the cancer risk.2 There have been some reports on radiation-induced skin injury in cardiology and interventional radiology (IVR),3 but reports from gastrointestinal endoscopy units are rare. However, all medical staff in gastrointestinal endoscopy units need to have correct knowledge of the appropriate use of medical radiation. Historically, the use of medical radiation has rapidly increased since the 1990s with the spread of ...

Follow the instructions from your physicians office or pre-procedure instructions.. What Happens During an Upper Endoscopy?. You will lie on your left side, and an intravenous (IV) sedation is used during an upper endoscopy. Once the sedation takes effect your doctor will pass a lighted, flexible endoscope into your mouth. A plastic mouth guard is usually used to protect the endoscope from your teeth. A tiny camera at the tip of the endoscope will transmit images to a monitor for your physician to view. If your physician is using tools to obtain a biopsy, he/she will use the monitor to guide the tools used.. At the end of the exam, the endoscope is slowly withdrawn. The procedure takes about five to 20 minutes, depending on why the test is being performed and what your physician finds.. What Happens After an Upper Endoscopy?. Immediately following an upper endoscopy, you will spend some time resting in recovery while the sedation medication, if used, wears off. Upper endoscopy is performed as ...
These data are the first to describe the implementation of a nationwide certification system on polypectomy training. The introduction of structured polypectomy assessment was both feasible and acceptable, with similar numbers of trainees applying for certification after the introduction of the DOPyS. In addition, these data show clear evidence of an increase in trainees documented exposure to therapeutic lower gastrointestinal endoscopy as well as providing formal evidence of skills acquisition.. The DOPyS was designed to aid both training and permit certification of competency. However, it appears that it is currently being used predominantly with the latter objective: this may well be related to its inclusion as a mandatory part of the colonoscopy competency certification process. Only a very small proportion (0.4%) of assessments were scored 1 (accepted standards not yet met; frequent errors uncorrected). These low-scoring DOPyS are likely to represent formative assessments for trainees in ...

We present the case of a 53 years old, male patient, with diabetes, therapeutically neglected, who is admitted in the hospital for cellulitis of the left calf. Arteriography of the left femoral artery and amputation of the three toes were performed. After 10 days of hospitalization, the patient developed massive hematemesis but the upper GI endoscopy revealed a large number of clots in the esophagus with no obvious source of bleeding. The control endoscopy showed erosions and erythema in the lower third of the esophagus with no blood. The patient is treated conservatory with PPI and blood transfusions. He is apparently well but after 5 days a new episode of massive hematemesis was encountered with altered conscious state, severe hypotension (90/50mmHg) and a drop of hemoglobin from 8g/dl to 6g/dl. The endoscopy was performed in the ICU department with the patient intubated and it revealed massive clots in the distal esophagus that were removed with the snare. Underneath the clots severe ...
Objective: Gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy is an important tool for diagnosis and treatment of GI diseases. However, when endoscopy is indicated during pregnancy, concerns about its safety for mother and fetus often arise. Our objective was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of endoscopic procedures in pregnant patients along with maternal and fetal outcomes. Methods: This study was conducted at the Aga Khan University Hospital after Ethics review committee approval. It was a retrospective study and medical records of all pregnant patients who underwent endoscopy during pregnancy from January 2000 to January 2014 were analyzed. Data regarding the indications and type of endoscopic procedure, use of sedation and radiation were noted; data on any complications during or after pregnancy were recorded as well. Results: A total of 48 pregnant women underwent endoscopic procedures. Procedures that were performed included gastroscopy, sigmoidoscopy, colonoscopy, and endoscopic retrograde cholangio

Background: Helicobacter pylori is the main risk-factor for gastric cancer through a cascade from gastritis through atrophic gastritis (AG), intestinal metaplasia (IM), dysplasia (DYS) to malignancy. The presence of these lesions in the general population predicts the gastric cancer incidence in the coming decades. Prevalence data are mostly obtained from serological studies and endoscopy data in symptomatic patients. Aim: To investigate the prevalence of H. pylori infection and its related gastric changes in asymptomatic subjects. Methods: 383 Patients undergoing routine colonoscopy were included. All subjects underwent upper GI endoscopy and completed the Gastrointestinal Symptom Rating Scale (GSRS). Biopsies were taken from antrum and corpus. Results: H. pylori infection was present in 22%. Non-Caucasian subjects had a significantly higher H. pylori prevalence (p , 0.001). AG, IM and DYS were together found in 9.3% of subjects. Subjects with AG, IM or DYS were significantly older (p , 0.001). ...

Upper endoscopy is also used to treat conditions of the upper gastrointestinal tract. Dr. B C Shah can pass ...
Endoscopy is a test that uses a thin, flexible, lighted viewing instrument (endoscope) to allow a doctor to examine the inside of organs, canals, and cavities in the body.. Endoscopy can reveal problems that do not show up on X-ray tests and can sometimes eliminate the need for exploratory surgery. Tissue samples also may be collected and abnormal growths removed during endoscopy.. Different types of endoscopes can be used to study the sinuses, the upper digestive tract, the colon, a females pelvic organs, and other parts of the body.. For example, in an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, the doctor guides the endoscope down the persons throat to examine the esophagus, stomach, and the upper part of the small intestine.. ...
