Endoscopy of the upper gastrointestinal tract can delineate the location and degree of injury to the hypopharynx, esophagus, and stomach. To reduce the risk of perforation, the procedure is performed within the first 48 hours after injury.

The upper gastrointestinal tract (the stomach, duodenum, jejunum, and upper ileum) normally contains a sparse microflora; the bacterial concentrations is less than 10 4 organisms/ml of intestinal secretions. Most of these organisms are derived from the oropharynx and pass through the gut with each by:   Injury of the gastrointestinal mucosa, particularly in the upper digestive tract, represents an important clinical problem in gastroenterology. Ranging from peptic ulcer disease to other forms of mucosal injury, this pathophysiologic process has grabbed the imagination and attention of clinicians and scientists alike. Stemming from the seminal observations in by Andre Robert that. Abstract. Several prostaglandins have been shown to inhibit the secretion of acid and pepsin by the stomach of various species. They possess anti-ulcer acitivity in the upper gastrointestinal tract in animal models and have beneficial ‘cytoprotective’ effects on the intergrity of the gastric mucosa when it is exposed to noxious stimuli in animals and by: 1.
