Interdisziplinäre Endoskopie bei Kindern

Translated title of the contribution: Interdisciplinary endoscopy in children


INTRODUCTION: Endoscopic diagnostics and interventions in children require a high level of expertise from different fields. The small dimensions, the vulnerability of the patients and the rarity of the diseases and problems as well as the necessity for the most modern endoscopic technology can only be mastered by an adequately constructed team.

METHODS: We describe the typical indications, personnel and technical requirements and make suggestions for process organization. The necessity for an interdisciplinary approach is described using three illustrative examples.

RESULT: No single specialty alone can cope with the manifold challenges of pediatric endoscopy. The organization should therefore favor low-threshold collaborations.

OUTLOOK: Further development of techniques is needed especially in the field of premature infant care and children with intestinal failure and motility disorders.
