Gastroscopic Findings:

Gastroscope was passed into the stomach without difficulty. The antrum was identified and observed constriction by an extrinsic mass lesion.

No intrinsic mucosal lesions were seen but the entire antrum could not be seen because of the degree of constriction.

There was no peristalsis seen to move into the area of constriction. Because of a large amount of retained secretions, adequate visualization of the remainder of the stomach was not attempted.


Malignant disease involving the antrum - constricting the antrum.
