Performance and conditions:
- Video Gastroscopy
- Video Colonoscopy
- The esophageal-gastro-duodeno-scopy
It is a process of examining the upper part of the digestive system with the help of a thin and curlable tube called a gastroscope. This process is performed by various physicians, such as upper gastrointestinal system endoscopy, esophago-gastro duodenoscopy or panendoscopy. During this procedure, the food tube, the stomach and the duodenum can be examined, and photos of internal organs can be taken if necessary. This includes diverticula, diabetic cancers, gastric hernia (reflux), midge polyps, stomach cancer, gastritis, etc. the diseases can be diagnosed and differentiated.
Recording method of the small intestine and bowel dried by means of setting up the camera to the top. Enter is through the anal sphincter and the recording region is the entire colon, the small intestine, a contiguous portion of the colon.
Sigmoidoscopy is the examination given to the examination of the proximal part of the large intestine. Before operation, the intestines must be cleansed with the laxative. Colon (thick bowel) is the most reliable method for diagnosing cancer. Also; polyp and similar pre-cancer lesions. It is recommended to make everyone who is over 50 years old to be protected from colon cancer. Those with colon cancer in close relatives should have colonoscopy 10 years before the youngest cancer patient in the family. The great majority of colon cancers develop on benign tumors called polyps. Appropriate colonoscopy, allows the detection and removal of polyps in the stage before cancer develops (polypectomy). In this way, it will save patients both cancer and surgery. Polyps taken from the thick intestine should have follow-up colonoscopy every 1 to 3 years according to the polypin features. It is also used in the diagnosis and follow-up of non-cancer large bowel diseases such as colonoscopy, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease. Colonoscopy can relieve patients from surgery by providing diagnosis and treatment of large intestinal bleeds.
