Triple Endoscopy

Your physician may determine that your child needs further, more extensive, assessment of their symptoms. The team will then refer your child for a triple endoscopy (laryngoscopy, endoscopy and bronchoscopy) which is performed under anesthesia, in an operating room setting.

During this procedure, a flexible tube with a camera on the end is inserted through the nose into the airway to directly visualize the larynx (voice box), bronchi (breathing tubes) and esophagus (swallowing tube).

Several laboratory tests and cultures may be ordered in conjunction with triple endoscopy for diagnostic purposes.
