Esophagoscopy Rigid in Dubai at DRHC

Overview of Rigid Esophagoscopy

Rigid esophagoscopy is a diagnostic and therapeutic procedure that involves the use of a rigid endoscope to examine the esophagus. This procedure allows for a detailed evaluation of the esophageal lining and can be used to diagnose and treat various esophageal conditions. At DRHC Dubai, our skilled specialists utilize rigid esophagoscopy to ensure accurate diagnosis and effective treatment for our patients.

Indications for Rigid Esophagoscopy

Rigid esophagoscopy is indicated for a variety of esophageal conditions, including:

  • Foreign Body Removal: Extraction of ingested foreign objects from the esophagus.
  • Stricture Dilation: Treatment of esophageal strictures (narrowing) to improve swallowing.
  • Biopsy: Collection of tissue samples for the diagnosis of esophageal diseases, including cancer.
  • Bleeding Control: Management of esophageal bleeding.
  • Assessment of Tumors: Evaluation of esophageal tumors for diagnosis and treatment planning.

Procedure Details

  1. Anesthesia: The patient is placed under general anesthesia to ensure comfort and immobility during the procedure.
  2. Insertion: The rigid endoscope is gently inserted into the mouth and advanced into the esophagus.
  3. Visualization: The endoscope provides a clear view of the esophageal lining, allowing the specialist to identify any abnormalities.
  4. Intervention: Depending on the findings, the specialist may perform necessary interventions such as biopsy, dilation, or removal of foreign objects.
  5. Completion: The endoscope is carefully withdrawn, and the patient is monitored during recovery from anesthesia.
