ASGE Standards of Practice committee member, Aasma Shaukat, MD, MPH, FASGE, discusses this recent guideline from the ASGE, “The role of endoscopy in dyspepsia.”
The focus of this guideline was to review the prevalence, diagnosis, and medical and endoscopic management of dyspepsia.
Dyspepsia is one of the most common complaints for visits to gastroenterology practices. We wanted to provide a practical resource document for busy gastroenterologists to help with management of patients with dyspepsia.
The document reviews the latest evidence for using proton pump inhibitors, role of upper endoscopy, and when to consider testing and treating for H.Pylori infection. It provides a management algorithm to guide patient care.
