The video shows a regular diagnostic gastroscopy. The patient has a lymphoma of the duodenum. The gastroscope is inserted through the mouth and the mucous membrane of the esophagus, stomach and duodenum are inspected for pathological changes. Air is pumped out through the scope to expand the tract and make visual inspection easier.
When the duodenal tumor is located, biopsy forceps are inserted through a canal in the gastroscope. Several biopsies are taken from all parts of the tumor and the tissue immediately surrounding it.
