This full-color atlas is the first comprehensive how-to reference on transnasal esophagoscopy.
The authors define the indications for the procedure, provide step-by-step instructions on technique, and describe the full range of anatomy and pathology seen during TNE examinations. Major sections focus on disease-specific applications of TNE, including esophagitis, webs and rings, hiatal hernia, Barrett's metaplasia, neoplasia, and miscellaneous esophageal problems such as foreign bodies, diverticula, caustic injuries, and varices. More than 100 full-color endoscopic images depict both normal esophageal anatomy and abnormalities as seen through the endoscope.
