with rigid oesophagoscope is a reliable method for the extraction of food bolus from the oesophagus in elderly people.
Investigations performed included 7 angiography, 9 barium swallow, 7 oesophagoscopy
, 8 laryngoscopy and 4 bronchoscopy.
Tumour length can be assessed with oesophagoscopy
(Figure 4), barium swallow study, computed tomography, endoscopic ultrasonography and histopathological examination of resected specimen.
Other investigations or diagnostic procedures undertaken in the private sector included upper oesophagoscopy
(in a participant complaining of dysphagia), lung function testing, bronchoscopy, tissue biopsy (of pleura, lymph node and lung), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans and CAT angiograms.
Some went on--unnecessarily--to computed tomography (CT) scans, upper oesophagoscopy
(in a colleague complaining of dysphagia), lung function testing, bronchoscopy, tissue biopsy (of pleura, lymph node and lung), magnetic resonance imaging scans and CT angiograms, and ran into complications following invasive tests.
was performed and superiorly a horizontally impacted metallic foreign body in cricopharynx was seen, conventional foreign body catcher was used and foreign body was disloged and then removed vertically to avoid any perforation.
One institution did not teach rigid oesophagoscopy
is usually the investigation of first choice to exclude an obstructive lesion.
The diagnosis can be reached using the oesophagoscopy
and bronchoscopy as done in this case.
was performed and conventional foreign body catcher was used but as there was no space between the foreign body and the oesophageal wall so it was not possible to remove it and to push it further down.
