Ballooning Esophagoscopy





Category: INTRODUCTION OF THE ESOPHAGOSCOPE
Source: A Manual Of Peroral Endoscopy And Laryngeal Surgery

By inserting the window plug shown in
Fig. 6 the esophagus may be inflated and studied in the distended
state. The folds are thus smoothed out and constrictions rendered more
marked. Ether anesthesia is advocated by Mosher. The danger of
respiratory arrest from pressure, should the patient be dyspneic, is
always present unless the anesthetic be given by the intratracheal
method. If necessary to use forceps the window cap is removed. If the
perforated rubber diaphragm cap be substituted the esophagus can be
reballooned, but work is no longer ocularly guided. The fluoroscope
may be used but is so misleading as to render perforation and false
passage likely.
