CHICAGO -- Transnasal esophagoscopy
easily identified esophageal abnormalities without sedation in an office-based setting during a small, prospective study.
The utility of transnasal esophagoscopy
as a screening tool was validated in a recent large study in which significant findings were identified in half of 592 procedures performed for reflux, globus, or dysphagia; the study was performed in a large tertiary care center (Laryngoscope 2005;115:321-3).
Paul Canter, who performed the procedure, told the Newcastle inquest he had performed roughly 130 successful esophagoscopy
procedures before Mrs Reed's death.
In fact, approximately 3-4 months prior to the initial office consultation, she had presented to a local emergency room for a presumed food bolus obstruction and underwent esophagoscopy
revealed extrinsic compression of the lower esophagus and normal esophageal mucosa.
