“Ars Medical” has two endoscopy laboratories that are equipped with diagnostic equipment for upper and lower alimentary tract and respiratory tract (bronchoscopy).
Endoscopic examinations are performed by:
Gastroscopy is an endoscopic examination that allows an accurate assessment of the upper gastrointestinal tract. It involves watching the esophagus, stomach and duodenum. Gastroscopy may be both a diagnostic and a therapeutic examination involving, for example, the removal of foreign bodies, stopping bleeding, removing polyps or endoscopic widening of the resulting stenoses. During gastroscopy we also perform the so-called urease test for the presence of Helicobacter pylori (HP) bacteria causing inflammation or gastric or duodenal ulcers.
Colonoscopy is an endoscopic examination that allows to assess the large intestine, and in certain cases the final section of the small intestine. The tip of the endoscope, which is inserted into the intestine through the anus, has the ability to rotate in any direction in a fairly large range, which allows the endoscope to be carried through the entire length of the large intestine. Colonoscopy may be a diagnostic test allowing to assess the mucous membrane of the examined section of the large intestine, as well as a therapeutic one consisting in: removing polyps, stopping bleeding, endoscopic dilatation of the resulting strictures, or palliative decongestion of the large intestine. In state-of-the-art equipment, a micrograph is placed in place of optical fibers, placed at the end of the image sending apparatus, which is then digitally processed.
