Introduction to Starting Upper Gastrointestinal Endoscopy: Proper Insertion, Complete Observation, and Appropriate Photographing.

Park KS - Clin Endosc (2015)

Bottom Line: Mastering the basics of endoscopy is very important because when this process is imprecise or performed incorrectly, it can severely affect a patient's health or life.Although there are several guidelines and studies that consider these basics, there are still no standard recommendations for endoscopy in Korea.In this review, basic points, including proper endoscope insertion, precise observation without blind spots, and appropriate photographing, for upper gastrointestinal endoscopy will be discussed.

ABSTRACT
Diagnostic upper gastrointestinal endoscopy is the most basic of endoscopy procedures and is the technique that trainee doctors first learn. Mastering the basics of endoscopy is very important because when this process is imprecise or performed incorrectly, it can severely affect a patient's health or life. Although there are several guidelines and studies that consider these basics, there are still no standard recommendations for endoscopy in Korea. In this review, basic points, including proper endoscope insertion, precise observation without blind spots, and appropriate photographing, for upper gastrointestinal endoscopy will be discussed.

Mentions: As the tube enters the stomach, gastric folds can be observed in the 10 and 4 o'clock positions (Fig. 4). It is possible to proceed easily to the antrum if the operator naturally rotates the endoscope by turning their body and arm clockwise while infusing air to adjust their position so that the gastric folds flow in the 6 and 12 o'clock directions. If the path forward does not appear, even when the process is repeated, a malfunctioning air infusion system, Borrmann type 4 gastric cancer, or situs inversus should be excluded.
