What is a panendoscopy?

0

Panendoscopy is a procedure that enables the doctor to look at the lining of the esophagus, stomach and duodenum by inserting a small flexible tube into the mouth and advancing it slowly into the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract. This is done under sedation. Because of topical anesthetic sprayed into the mouth there is no gagging sensation. There is no interference with breathing.
