The digestive endoscopy allows to visualize, through the use of video endoscopes, the organs of the digestive tract, in particular the esophagus, the stomach, duodenum and colon.
Digestive endoscopy can be both diagnostic (through evaluation and characterization of alterations or injuries of the explored mucosa) or therapeutic (removal of polyps, stopping of digestive bleeding, cauterization of potentially hemorrhagic lesions, etc.).
Medical and nursing staff have long experience in digestive endoscopy. All surveys are carried out administering a pharmacological sedation to the patient. Anesthetists are also available to carry out, upon request, endoscopic examinations in deep sedation (anesthesia). After the survey is executed, the patient is placed in a dedicated recovery area that allows his constant monitoring of vital parameters.
The supplied instruments allow:
- High Definition Endoscopic Surveys (HDTV) with the most detailed observation of the mucosa and capillaries
- Narrow Band Imaging (NBI) use, with increased contrast between blood vessels and mucosa with better definition of lesions
- The use of variable rigidity that helps the operator to conduct a simpler survey based on the specific anatomical needs of each patient
- Close focusing up to 2 mm from the mucosa for a more precise characterization of the mucous lesions or abnormalities.
For colonoscopy, specific preparation protocols are used to achieve maximum colonic cleansing with minimal discomfort for the patient.
