Peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat achalasia, a condition where the muscles of the esophagus fail to relax properly. During POEM, a flexible endoscope is used to create a tunnel in the esophageal wall, allowing for muscle cutting to improve swallowing function. This innovative technique offers reduced recovery time and less postoperative discomfort compared to traditional surgical approaches.
Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) is a minimally invasive procedure used to remove abnormal or cancerous growths from the digestive tract lining. Employing an endoscope, physicians lift and cut the targeted tissue for examination and treatment. EMR is an effective approach for early-stage gastrointestinal cancers, allowing for precise removal and reducing the need for more extensive surgeries.
Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is an advanced endoscopic technique for the precise removal of large lesions or early-stage cancers within the digestive tract lining. Using specialized tools, ESD allows physicians to dissect the submucosal layer, enabling complete and en-bloc removal of abnormal tissue with greater accuracy compared to traditional methods.
Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) is a diagnostic procedure that combines endoscopy and ultrasound imaging. It involves passing a thin needle through the endoscope to obtain tissue or fluid samples from lesions adjacent to the gastrointestinal tract. EUS-FNA aids in diagnosing and staging various conditions, including pancreatic tumors and lymph node abnormalities, with high precision.
Endoscopic guided pancreatic pseudocyst drainage is a minimally invasive procedure using endoscopy to puncture and drain fluid from a pancreatic pseudocyst, facilitating resolution and symptom relief.
Endoscopic ultrasound-guided liver biopsy (EUS-LB) is a procedure that combines endoscopy and ultrasound to obtain liver tissue samples, aiding in the diagnosis and management of liver diseases with precision.
Endoscopy-guided gastric varix coiling is a procedure using endoscopic techniques to place coils or other devices in gastric varices, preventing bleeding and addressing complications associated with these dilated blood vessels.
Endoscopic-guided gastrojejunostomy is a minimally invasive procedure using endoscopy to create an opening between the stomach and the jejunum, offering an alternative for patients with gastric outlet obstruction.
Endoscopic-guided cholecystogastrostomy is a minimally invasive procedure utilizing endoscopy to create a direct communication between the gallbladder and stomach, offering an alternative for biliary drainage in select cases.
Endoscopic-guided hepaticogastrostomy is a minimally invasive procedure utilizing endoscopy to create a direct communication between the bile ducts and the stomach, providing an alternative for biliary drainage.
Endoscopic-guided celiac plexus block and neurolysis involve injecting medication near the celiac plexus to alleviate abdominal pain caused by conditions like pancreatic cancer, providing targeted pain relief through nerve blockage.
Endoscopic intragastric balloon placement for obesity involves inserting a deflated balloon into the stomach through endoscopy. Once inflated, the balloon promotes a feeling of fullness, aiding in weight loss.
Endoscopic-guided choledochoduodenostomy is a procedure using endoscopy to create a direct connection between the common bile duct and the duodenum, offering an alternative for bile drainage in specific cases.
Pancreatic Cancer: Pancreatic cancer is a highly aggressive and often deadly form of cancer that originates in the pancreas, an essential organ for digestion and blood sugar regulation. It's often diagnosed at advanced stages, making it challenging to treat effectively. Symptoms may include abdominal pain, weight loss, and jaundice.
Gallstones: Gallstones are solid particles that form in the gallbladder, a small organ that stores bile. Gallstones can vary in size and composition and may cause intense, cramp-like pain in the upper right abdomen or under the breastbone, particularly after meals. Severe cases may require surgical removal of the gallbladder.
Gastritis: Gastritis refers to the inflammation of the stomach lining, which can be acute or chronic. This condition can result from various causes, including infection with Helicobacter pylori, excessive alcohol consumption, prolonged use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), or stress. Symptoms often include abdominal pain, bloating, nausea, and a feeling of fullness.
Cirrhosis is a progressive liver disease characterized by the replacement of healthy liver tissue with scar tissue, impacting liver function. Typically resulting from chronic conditions like hepatitis or alcohol abuse, cirrhosis can lead to complications such as portal hypertension and liver failure. Management involves addressing the underlying cause and adopting lifestyle changes.
Fatty liver, or hepatic steatosis, is a condition characterized by the accumulation of excess fat in liver cells. Commonly associated with obesity, diabetes, or excessive alcohol intake, it can lead to inflammation and liver damage. Lifestyle modifications, including a balanced diet and regular exercise, are key components of management.
Pancreatitis is the inflammation of the pancreas, often triggered by gallstones, alcohol consumption, or certain medications. Symptoms include severe abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. Acute pancreatitis requires hospitalization for supportive care, while chronic cases may involve lifestyle changes and medication. Complications can be serious, necessitating prompt medical attention.
Indigestion, or dyspepsia, is a common digestive issue marked by discomfort or pain in the upper abdomen. Causes range from overeating and consuming spicy foods to stress. Symptoms include bloating, nausea, and a burning sensation. Lifestyle changes, dietary adjustments, and over-the-counter medications can often alleviate indigestion.
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a chronic condition where stomach acid flows back into the esophagus, leading to symptoms such as heartburn, regurgitation, and chest pain. Persistent GERD can damage the esophagus lining. Management involves lifestyle modifications, medications, and, in severe cases, surgical intervention to alleviate symptoms and prevent complications.
