Associations of Gastroscopes with chemical compounds


Gene context of Gastroscopes

  • Twenty-three consecutive patients with actively bleeding esophageal varices had EVL with a flexible gastroscope [8].
  • Following local anesthesia to the nose, through-the-nose (TTN) passage of a paediatric gastroscope was successful and well tolerated in 82 of 92 patients on whom it was attempted in order to place nasogastric feeding tubes [9].
