Endoscopy - the most reliable way of diagnosing diseases, in which the doctor gets the opportunity to see the state of the patient's internal organs. The examination is carried out with the help of an endoscope - a thin tube with a video camera at the end, which is inserted through natural channels.
Specially trained endoscopists of the "Vitamin" medical center use the following types of endoscopic examinations in diagnosis:
Gastroscopy or FGDS (esophagogastroduodenoscopy) in Uzhhorod is currently the most informative and safe method of examining the esophagus, stomach and duodenum.
In the "Vitamin" medical center, leading Japanese-made Fujinon devices are used. The system is built on the basis of modern technologies and opens up new diagnostic possibilities, provides high clarity and wide image processing capabilities. The dual view mode allows you to simultaneously display a normal and FICE image on the screen. Parallel viewing of two images provides more information for research and diagnosis.
On the monitor, the doctor sees an image in ultra HD quality with the possibility of 20-fold optical magnification. This allows you to see the smallest changes and find diseases in the early stages.
With this device, the doctor can perform a biopsy - take a piece of tissue for microscopic examination. If necessary, the doctor has the opportunity to do it immediately, without further interventions.
How to prepare for the gastroscopy procedure?
In order for the results of gastroscopy to be of high quality, it is important to prepare for the examination:
- if the procedure is in the morning, come on an empty stomach;
- if in the evening, you can eat a light breakfast, but wait at least 6 hours without food.
Is anesthesia necessary?
We work according to European standards and advise to carry out the examination in a state of medicated sleep. The patient "sleeps" during the procedure without unpleasant sensations. After general anesthesia, there is usually no discomfort. But, if the patient does not want anesthesia, the doctor will perform a gastroscopy under local anesthesia.
Fibrobronchoscopy (bronchoscopy) is a highly informative endoscopic visual examination of the voice apparatus (larynx), mucous membranes and lumen of the trachea and bronchial tree with a special device - a fibrobronchoscope.
In the "Vitamin" medical center, we use a modern bronchoscope made in Japan by FUJINON.
For which symptom is bronchoscopy prescribed?
- prolonged unmotivated cough;
- difficult breathing;
- detection of foreign objects in the respiratory tract;
- bleeding, discharge of pus from the respiratory tract;
- shortness of breath for unknown reasons;
- suspicion of a neoplasm;
- frequent inflammation of the lungs and bronchitis;
- suspicion of tuberculosis.
Any other bronchopulmonary changes that may be accompanied by a prolonged cough, pain, hemorrhages, the appearance of significant secretions (not necessarily purulent), an increase in bronchopulmonary lymph nodes, and impaired respiratory function are also grounds for this procedure.
How to prepare for the colonography procedure?
Preparation for bronchoscopy is a very important stage, which depends on the procedure itself, the reliability of the results obtained, and the feeling of well-being afterwards.
In the morning before bronchoscopy, you must:
- perform oral hygiene;
- not to eat (the last meal should be no later than 9:00 p.m. the day before, and without overeating)
- stop drinking water in time before the procedure (you can drink for the last time at least 4 hours before the study).
- If the procedure will be performed in the afternoon or evening, you should eat no later than 8 hours before the bronchoscopy.
How is the bronchoscopy procedure?
Bronchoscopy at the "Vitamin" medical center in Uzhgorod is performed with maximum comfort for the patient. We are responsible for the safety of the anesthetics used and the painlessness of the procedure performed in medicated sleep.
During the procedure, an expert-class bronchoscope is used, which provides the endoscopist with the possibility of a detailed examination of the tracheobronchial tree with the help of a mini-camera and carrying out other necessary manipulations under its control. The entire procedure (regardless of the purpose - diagnosis or treatment) is carried out under the supervision of an anesthesiologist.
Colonoscopy is an endoscopic examination of the large intestine.
The "Vitamin" medical center uses an expert class video endoscopic system, manufactured in Japan by Fujinon. The system is built on the basis of modern technologies and opens up new diagnostic possibilities, provides high clarity and wide possibilities for image processing. In the dual view mode, the normal and FICE images are simultaneously displayed on the screen. And the parallel viewing of two images provides more information for research and diagnosis.
The doctor sees images on the monitor in ultra HD quality with the possibility of 20-fold optical magnification. This makes it possible to notice the smallest changes and find diseases in the early stages.
With the Fujinon endoscope, the doctor can perform a biopsy - take a piece of tissue for microscopic examination. If necessary, it is possible to do it immediately, without further interventions. Sometimes during the procedure, medical manipulations are performed immediately: the doctor removes polyps, cauterizes bleeding vessels, and treats the mucous membrane with drugs.
For which symptom is a colonoscopy prescribed?
- with prolonged constipation
- with intestinal obstruction
- with bleeding from the intestines
- if non-specific ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease or tumors are suspected
How to prepare for the colonoscopy procedure?
- On the eve of the procedure, clean the intestines with a special solution.
- Three days before the procedure, switch to a "slag-free diet".
What diet should I follow before the colonoscopy procedure?
Light breakfast: low-fat cheese, eggs, pasta, wholemeal bread, peeled boiled potatoes, boiled rice with lean fish, skinless chicken breast. For breakfast, you cannot eat any products that contain fiber: cabbage, legumes, buckwheat and other cereals.
Lunch, dinner and other meals: clear liquids (water, tea, coffee without milk), carbonated or non-carbonated soft drinks, juices from pureed fruits without pulp. It is important to exclude red and purple liquids, milk and alcoholic beverages.
Is anesthesia necessary?
We work according to European standards and recommend conducting research in the state of medicated sleep. Before the procedure, you "fall asleep" and do not feel discomfort. But, if you want, the doctor will perform the procedure under local anesthesia.
