Diagnosis





Category: DISEASES OF THE ESOPHAGUS
Source: A Manual Of Peroral Endoscopy And Laryngeal Surgery

The swallowing function can be studied only with
the fluoroscope; esophagoscopy for diagnosis, should therefore always
be preceded by a fluoroscopic study of deglutition with a barium or
other opaque mixture and examination of the thoracic organs to
eliminate external pressure on the esophagus as the cause of stenosis.
Complete physical examination and Wassermann reaction are further
routine preliminaries to any esophagoscopy. Special laboratory tests
are done as may be indicated. The physical examination is meant to
include a careful examination of the lips, tongue, palate, pharynx,
and a mirror examination of the larynx when age permits.
