Every year the number of diseases, as well as pathological conditions and clinical symptoms that are the reason for performing this procedure, is constantly increasing.
One of the most common indicationsthere are suspicions that the patient has a stomach ulcer or gastritis. In this case, after identifying the disease, a person will have to undergo gastroscopy annually. This is necessary in time to identify the slightest changes in the morphological structure of the gastric mucosa.
Another indication for gastroscopyis the identification of the patient's body mass deficiency or anemia of unknown etiology. In addition, if the patient has a feeling of disgust for meat or a metallic taste in the mouth, then gastroscopy should also be performed.

Today, such a procedure in Japan ismandatory for the entire population of the country. No medical certificate for a job will not be signed by a doctor if during the previous year the patient has not undergone gastroscopy. Feedback on such a procedure from the Japanese is the best. This is due, primarily, to the fact that its prophylactic treatment has significantly increased the detectability of malignant tumors in the very early stages of their development. As a result, surgical treatment was performed in patients in a timely manner and in relatively small volumes.
So in most cases, gastroscopy is aimed at controlling the course of gastric diseases, which over time can degenerate into malignant tumors.
Reviews of adult patients about this procedureable to push the idea that it is not carried out in children. In fact, today there are already a huge number of gastroscopes specifically for kids. They have a much smaller diameter than similar equipment designed for adults.

As for surgeons, to determine the tactics of treatment of the pathology of their profile, it is usually necessary to perform gastroscopy on an emergency basis.
In the course of this procedure, oftenTo confirm the diagnosis, the doctor must send a portion of the diseased tissue for histological examination. His capture is done by pinching off. In the future, a tissue sample is sent for examination by a pathologist. That he will give the final conclusion about what kind of disease has changed the gastric mucosa.
