Upper Gastrointestinal Tract Endoscopic Biopsies.

Dr Anil Kumar Baruah

Abstract :

Introduction: Upper GI Upper gastrointestinal tract is an important site for wide variety of lesions especially malignant tumors. Endoscopy in combination with endoscopic biopsy plays an important role in the diagnosis of upper gastrointestinal tract neoplasms and therefore aids in their early management. Aims and objective: This study was done to determine thehistopathologic spectrum of Upper Gastrointestinal Tract Mucosal Biopsies.Materials and methods: A prospective study of upper GI endoscopic biopsy was carried out in a tertiary care hospital over a span of one year.55 biopsysamples were subjected to histopathological examination. Results:: Among the 55 endoscopic biopsies- Oesophageal biopsies were 25 (45.45%), gastric biopsies were 18(32.7%) and duodenal biopsies were 12 (21.8%). Out of 55 cases, 35 (63.63%) were males and 20 (36.36%) were females with a male to female ratio of 1.75:1. Biopsies comprised of 42 (76.3%)non neoplastic cases and 13(23.6%) neoplastic cases. Among the 13 neoplastic cases,08 cases were from oesophagus and 05 cases from stomach. All the 08 esophageal malignancies were squamous cell carcinoma and all the 05 gastric malignancies were adenocarcinoma.Conclusion: We conclude that Histopathological analysis of gastrointestinal lesions aids the clinicians for follow up and specific treatment and provides a powerful diagnostic tool for better patient management.
