Esophagogastroduodendoscopy in pediatric patients including biopsy techniques and dilatation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) is the most common procedure performed by gastroenterologists - both adult and pediatric. It is an exciting tool with several diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities. In experienced hands, pediatric EGD is a safe and relatively noninvasive procedure. This review details features of EGD that are specific to the pediatric-aged patient, including biopsy techniques. Some diseases of the upper gastrointestinal tract where treatment has been revolutionized with availability of endoscopic tools are discussed. This article does not cover the very basics of EGD, eg, indications, preparation for the test, sedation, and actual performance of EGD because the reader of this journal is a sophisticated experienced gastroenterologist well versed in these basic components of EGD.
