Answer: Manipulative Procedures Example 11
Larynx and pharynx normal. Carcinoma of esophagus at 18 cm. Bx taken.
- Not much that you can abstract from this report, but it does confirm the diagnosis and establish the location f the lesion at 18 cm which is in the upper esophagus. You should check for the presence of a pathology report, since a biopsy was taken.
- You will note that the esophagoscopy report appears on the bronchoscopy report form. If both procedures are required, they may be done at the same time, as in Example F12.
