Kawai et al (2010) reported that ultra-thin trans-nasal EGD (TN-EGD) reduces pharyngeal discomfort and is more tolerable for the patients.  Ultra-thin transnasal endoscopy has been reported as inferior to transoral conventional EGD (TO-EGD) in terms of image quality, suction, air insufflation and lens washing, due to the smaller endoscope caliber; TN-EGD should be conducted slowly, with short distance observation, and also with image-enhanced endoscopy.  With reference to image-enhanced endoscopy, chromoendoscopy method (indigocarmine) is suitable for gastric neoplasm.  On the other hand, optical digital method (NBI) and digital method (i-scan, FICE) is suitable for esophageal neoplasm.  TN-EGD is applied in various GI procedures such as percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy, naso-enteric feeding tube placement, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreaticography with naso-biliary drainage, long intestinal tube placement in small bowel obstruction, as well as esophageal manometry.

  • Your doctor may advise a diet of liquids or soft foods until food can be swallowed without difficulty.
  • Mechanical dilation of the esophagus (esophageal bougienage) may be performed to widen the stricture.
  • Proton pump inhibitors or acid-blocking medicines are used to prevent esophageal strictures caused by GERD from recurring.
  • In severe cases the affected portion of the esophagus may be removed and replaced with a segment of the large intestine.
  • In a few cases patients who are unsuited for surgery may have a feeding tube inserted through the stricture. Alternatively, such patients may have a small tube placed into the stomach (gastrostomy), so that food may bypass the esophagus completely.
