The esophagus was without evidence of tumors, masses, ulcerations, esophagitis, strictures, or varices. There was a hiatal hernia present. The scope was passed through the hiatal hernia into the body of the stomach. In the distal antrum, there was some erythema with patchy erythematous changes with small superficial erosions. Multiple biopsies were obtained. The scope was passed through the pylorus into the duodenal bulb and duodenal suite, they appeared within normal limits.
