Upper Gastrointestinal Endoscopy: Upper GI Endoscopy is probably the most commonly performed endoscopic procedure worldwide. It is the first to be taught to trainees. In this eLearning video we aim to describe the most basic steps in upper GI endoscopy focusing on the mandatory positions to be observed according to ESGE and how to completely assess the upper GI tract. Other videos in this series will deal with the technical details of currently used endoscopes, and with the specific endoscopic features of diseases affecting the upper GI tract and their management.
