Endoscopy for dilatations, stents, bleeding control, polyp ablation, performed by flexible video-endoscopy.
Many therapies can be applied by endoscopic intervention. Thereby complex, irksome operations may in some cases be avoided:
- Arrest of bleeding (hemostasis) in the gastrointestinal tract
- Ablation of stones from the bile ducts and pancreas duct
- Widening/dilating stenoses with a bougie
- Stents in case of stenoses in the stomach, bile duct or large intestine (colon ileus)
