Treatment

  • Surgery: To remove part of the colon that is badly affected by ulcerative colitis.

  • Haemorrhoidectomy: It is the surgery done to remove a haemorrhoid which occurs when a vein in the rectum and anus gets swollen and causes pain due to constant pressure during bowel movements.

  • Chemotherapy: This is used to treat cancer in the GI tract such as oesophageal cancer using anti-cancer drugs that kill cancer cells.

  • Radiotherapy: Use of high-energy radio waves to destroy cancer cells and prevent them from spreading.

  • Myotomy: It involves removal of the muscle from the lower part of the oesophagus so as to control contractions for people with oesophageal spasms.

Tests and Procedures

  • Dilation: A procedure done to stretch the lower oesophageal sphincter using a gastroscope to ensure the balloon used is in the right position.

  • Oesophageal manometry: This test is done to measure muscle coordination and strength of the oesophagus when a person swallows.

  • Endoscopy: This diagnostic procedure is done to view inside the GI tract by inserting an endoscope (a thin flexible tube fitted with a camera and light) inside the oesophagus and stomach through the throat.

  • Capsule endoscopy: This can be used in place of upper endoscopy by asking a patient to swallow a capsule which then transmits images of the oesophagus and stomach lining.

  • Barium swallow: Also known as Radiography, this diagnostic technique involves a patient swallowing a thick barium mixture which can then help in diagnosing conditions like Achalasia by checking for abnormalities in the oesophagus and stomach in an x-ray.

  • Colonoscopy: Using a colonoscope (a thin flexible tube fitted with a camera and light) a doctor can view the inside of the colon passing the tube through the anus and into the colon. To make the colon more visible in an x-ray, enema (liquids passed through the colon) can be used to dye the colon.

  • Laparoscopy: This minimally invasive procedure is used to help a surgeon gain access to the inside of the abdomen by making small incisions and inserting a laparoscope which is fitted with a camera and light to that make it possible to view the inside of the abdomen.
