Best Endoscopic Ultrasound Procedure in Hyderabad
Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) is a procedure that combines endoscopy and ultrasound imaging to evaluate and diagnose diseases of the digestive system, such as cancer or pancreatic cysts. It can also be used to guide fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy of suspicious lesions. TX Hospital is the best gastroenterology hospital in Hyderabad having a specialization in various Endoscopic Procedures.
The patient is sedated and an endoscope with an ultrasound probe is inserted through the mouth and into the esophagus or stomach. The ultrasound probe allows for high-resolution imaging of the surrounding tissues and organs. If a suspicious lesion is identified, the endoscope can be used to perform a biopsy using a fine needle.
Preparation and dietary restrictions:
The patient should not eat or drink anything for several hours before the procedure. In some cases, a laxative may be given to empty the bowels. The patient should inform their doctor of any medications they are taking, as some may need to be stopped before the procedure.
Risks and complications:
EUS is generally a safe procedure, but complications can occur. These may include bleeding, infection, or perforation of the bowel. The risk of complications is higher in patients with certain medical conditions, such as cirrhosis or pancreatitis.
Recovery and follow-up:
After the procedure, the patient will need to rest for several hours to allow the sedative to wear off. They may experience some mild discomfort or bloating. Our doctors will provide instructions on diet and activity restrictions, and follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor the patient’s progress. If a biopsy was performed, the patient will be informed of the results and any necessary treatment
