Abstract

This chapter discusses endoscopic instruments, where Chevalier Jackson laryngoscope is used for direct laryngoscopy for diagnostic as well as therapeutic purposes. Anterior commissure laryngoscope is used for direct laryngoscopy especially to see blind or hidden areas of larynx such as anterior commissure, subglottis and laryngeal ventricles. Laryngeal crocodile forceps is used to remove any foreign body or to take biopsy from hypopharynx. Coin holding forceps is used to remove the coin from the hypopharynx. Fibreoptic hypopharyngoscope is a fibreoptic device to examine the upper and lower aerodigestive system. Chevalier Jackson bronchoscope is a hollow rigid tube, and is used for examination of trachea and bronchi for diagnostic as well as therapeutic purposes. Oesophagoscope is used for diagnostic as well as therapeutic purposes in suspected lesions of oesophagus, such as taking a biopsy, to see extent of tumour, to remove benign lesions, dilatation of stricture and removal of foreign bodies.
