Quality indicators for EGD

Nov 15, 2016, 18:31 PM
EGD is used widely for the diagnosis and treatment of esophageal, gastric, and small-bowel disorders. When properly performed, it is generally safe and well-tolerated for the examination of the upper GI tract. Included among the many accepted indications for EGD are evaluation of dysphagia, GI bleeding, peptic ulcer disease, medically refractory GERD, esophageal strictures, celiac disease, and unexplained diarrhea. During EGD evaluation, diagnostic biopsies can be performed as well as therapies to achieve hemostasis and dilation or stenting for significant strictures. In 2009, an estimated 6.9 million EGD procedures were performed in the United States at an estimated cost of $12.3 billion dollars. From 2000 to 2010, a 50% increase in EGD utilization was observed among Medicare recipients.
