What Is Retroflexion In Upper Endoscopy?

Answer

Retroflexion is a term used to discuss how the camera was turned to look at generally the upper part of the stomach. Because of the way the stomach is shaped, if the doctor went straight in and out she would miss seeing the upper part so she has to twist the camera and come up a different way to see everything.
