Clinical progress in gastrointestinal endoscopy over the last 5 years has resulted in more major advances in diagnosis and technique than have occurred in the last 100 years; this is because of the development of fiberoptic instruments. Major alterations in fiberscopes have resulted in radically new equipment almost yearly. Endoscopists therefore have been kept busy familiarizing themselves with this new equipment and its application to areas of the gastrointestinal tract that formerly were inaccessible. Experts compiling a comprehensive book on endoscopy during this rapidly evolving era face the hazard of being outdated by the time of publication.
