8) Secondary TEP is usually performed in the operating room with a rigid esophagoscope while the patient is under general anesthesia.
The equipment typically required to perform TEP includes a transnasal esophagoscope, a local anesthetic (1 to 2% lidocaine with epinephrine), a #15 scalpel blade, a hemostat, a TEP dilator, and a TEP sizer.
When they do, the transnasal esophagoscope is lubricated and passed into the neopharynx.
Insufflation via the esophagoscope provides maximal anteroposterior distention of the esophageal lumen during the procedure and protects the posterior esophageal wall.
Esophageal dilation requires a transnasal esophagoscope, Savary dilators, a vascular guide wire, and a large hemostat or Kelly clamp.
The technique involves inserting the esophagoscope into the area of the stricture (figure 6, B).
With the transnasal flexible esophagoscope, a laser fiber can be directed via the working channel toward the lesion.
