Article

Summary

  1. 1.

    Faulty technique may discredit the endoscopic examination of the stomach with the flexible gastroscope.

     
  2. 2.

    The possibility of seeing the pylorus is the most important single criterion of a good, successful gastroscopic examination.

     
  3. 3.

    In our series the pylorus was seen in 285 (91.1%) of 313 cases in which it should have been seen.

     
  4. 4.

    Gastroscopic technique should not be considered satisfactory if the pylorus is not observed in at least 80% of all possible cases.

     
  5. 5.

    The technique for the finding of the pylorus is described.
