Analysis of upper GI endoscopy findings in patients of dyspepsia at a tertiary care centre in Karnataka: A retrospective study

Author(s): Dr. Amar DN and Dr. Aravind Naik
Abstract: Background: Increased incidence of persistent dyspepsia has led to more number of patients undergoing upper GI endoscopy which has proved to be a valuable diagnostic tool to reduce the morbidity. It can also help to identify and treat upper GI malignancies at the earliest. Methods: Endoscopy database records of 200 consecutive patients of dyspepsia referred to the Department of General Surgery at our institute from January 2018 - January 2019 were analysed. Results: With a positive yield of 95%, there was more prevalence of dyspepsia in males (68%) than females (32%). The prevalence of dyspepsia was high in 31-40 yrs (24%). There was a high incidence of Oesophagitis (40%), Gastritis (34%) and Duodenitis (20%). There was 2.94% incidence of oesophageal and 4.69% stomach malignancies. Conclusion: Our study demonstrates high prevalence of dyspepsia in males, oesophagitis, gastritis and duodenitis which can be contributed to various factors like diet, climate and patient selection for the study.
