Upper gastrointestinal disorders are commonly seen in routine clinical practice. Delay in their diagnosis and treatment may lead to fatal complication like cancer. The endoscopic examination of upper GI is not only important in diagnosing common upper GI disorders, but also helpful in identification of premalignant conditions like Barrets esophagus and malignant lesions. This is a retrospectively study of esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) data of 1030 patients reported with various complains of Upper GI symptoms in Department of Surgery, endoscopy division. A total of 1030 patients were investigated. 144 (14%) patients were showed normal findings where as 886 (86%) cases had abnormal findings. The result of present study showed male predominance associated with the upper GI disorders. Gastritis was commonest disorder diagnosed in 701 (79.1%) cases. The duodenitis, oesophagitis, Hiatus hernia, GERD and round worms in duodenum were reported in 296 (33.4%), 328 (37.0%), 69
(7.78%), 21 (2.37%) and 4 (0.45%) cases respectively. 18(2.03%) of the cases were reported with Adenocarcinoma of stomach. Gastritis is the most common upper GI disorder seen the patient population. Timely diagnosis by upper GI endoscopy with patient education and risk factor management is essential to control upper GI disorders in this community.
