INTRODUCTION: This study aimed to analyze upper gastrointestinal system endoscopic examination findings from September 2021 to July 2022 at a state hospital.
METHODS: Sedated endoscopic examinations were conducted in the general surgical endoscopy unit, with retrospective evaluation of findings.
RESULTS: Among the patients, 272 (61.1%) were male and 173 (38.9%) were female. Common diagnoses included Duodenal ulcer (16.9%), Esophagitis (16.2%), Pangastritis (12.6%), Alkaline reflux (11.5%), Hiatal hernia (11.0%), Gastric polyp (7.6%), Gastric cancer (7.4%), Antral gastritis (6.5%), Gastric ulcer (6.1%), and Pyloric stenosis (2.5%).
DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: Esophagogastroduodenoscopy, a well-tolerated diagnostic procedure under sedation with minimal complications, is increasingly important in smaller, resource-limited hospitals. Its widespread use by healthcare professionals in such settings is crucial for diagnosing and treating patients.
