Endoscopic Examination Results?
Good afternoon, I want to ask for my mother’s endoscopy results. Esophagus: Slippery mucosa, hyperemia (-), mucosal break (+), esophageal varices (-), normal z-line. Gastric: smooth, normal fundus, cardia and corpus mucosa. Bile reflux (-), there appears blood hematin (+), edema of the mucous antrum, moderate hypermis, erosion (+), ulcer (-), pilor sphincter pilori is always open (gaping). Duodenum: bulb s / d parse descending slippery mucosa, normal. Two biopsies were performed in the antrum. I want to ask the results, what is it? The results
Hello Vika, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
From the results of the reading that you submit, we will explain it simply. In the results of the test explained that the inner layer of:
esophagus / esophagus: the inner layer (mucosa) is still slippery but there is an appearance of broken layers in the mucosa
gastric / gastric: on the inside of the stomach visible bleeding spots, with parts of the swollen antrum, erosion / mucosa also appears eroded, the ring between the esophagus and stomach is always open (normally closed when not crossed by food)
duodenum: normally no abnormalities are seen
From the results we describe it can be concluded that the possibility of irritation of the esophagus and also the stomach due to stomach acid. This is indicated by the presence of a layer of esophagus which has begun to show the presence of fractures or fragments of the esophagus layer and the presence of bleeding spots and erosion of the lining in the stomach. Generally this is very related to GERD or gastric acid disease which is strengthened by the presence of gastric rings and esophagus which is open, this is very possible the occurrence of reflux or spillage of stomach acid back up or into the esophagus.
However, we recommend that you consult the doctor who referred you for an endoscopy and biopsy. The biopsy is done to find out the severity of stomach acid which has eroded the inner lining of the stomach. From now on we recommend avoiding lying down after eating, and managing your stress well so that stomach acid production does not increase. If you have been given treatment from a doctor who treats you, then you should continue the medication according to the doctor's advice. Thus we can convey, hopefully useful.
