Intubation of gastro-oesophageal malignancies: a survey of current practice in Britain, 1980.
  1. J R Bennett


    A postal survey of British endoscopists was carried out to discover current practice in the intubation of gastro-oesophageal malignancies. Forty-six replies were analysed, comprising about 820 intubations. There were 75 perforations (approximately 9%) and the rate was about the same for operators with experience of 20 or more intubations. Tube blockage and dislocation were the main other problems.
