The gastroscope is of the same construction as the

esophagoscope, with the exception that it is made longer, in order to

reach all parts of the stomach. In ordinary cases, the regular

esophagoscopes for adults and children respectively will afford a good

view of the stomach, but there are cases which require longer tubes,

and for these a gastroscope 10 mm. X 70 cm. is made, and also one 10

mm. X 80 cm., though the latter has never been needed but once.
