EGD, or esophago-gastro-duodenoscopy, is a procedure that allows a physician to directly examine the upper part of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, which includes the esophagus, the stomach, and the duodenum. The most common reasons for upper endoscopy include: -Unexplained discomfort in the upper abdomen ●GERD or gastroesophageal reflux disease (often called heartburn) ●Persistent nausea and vomiting ●Upper gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding ●Difficulty swallowing ●Abnormal or unclear findings on an upper GI x-ray, CT scan, or MRI ●To check healing or progress on previously found polyps (growths), tumors, or ulcers.
