FBI is defined as the presence of any object, material, or food that gets trapped in the upper gastrointestinal tract

Rivers died from ''anoxic encephalopathy due to hypoxic arrest'' -- brain damage due to lack of oxygen -- during a procedure to scope her upper gastrointestinal tract
and vocal folds, a spokeswoman for the city's medical examiner said.

For the first 5 years following the surgery, the patient had annual check-ups, which included physical examination, ultrasound examination of the abdomen, endoscopy of the upper gastro-intestinal tract with the evaluation of esophagointestinal anastomosis and contrast radiography of the upper gastrointestinal tract
. The levels of CEA and CA19.9 were regularly checked, and full blood count with blood smear was done.
 EMPs most commonly occur in the upper gastrointestinal tract
or upper airways (80 - 90%) and often cause symptoms of upper airway obstruction, swelling and epistaxis.
With the advent of video capsule endoscopy and double-balloon enteroscopy, the ability to diagnose small intestinal lesions has improved and NSAID-induced injury has now been shown to occur more frequently in the intestines than in the upper gastrointestinal tract
. (15) Recent evidence from animal models suggests that PPIs can exacerbate NSAID-induced intestinal injury and that bacteria residing in the small intestine may play a significant role in the pathogenesis.
This extremely high number of eosinophils as a result released an increased amount of toxic granules that produced multiple ulcerations in the upper gastrointestinal tract
. We report the first case of multiple gastric and duodenal ulcers due to Strongyloides stercoralis infection in an immunocompetent patient with markedly elevated eosinophil cell counts and we suggest that the eosinophil cells played a central role in the development of the ulcers.
At the same time, however, low-dose aspirin administration is also associated with the development of mucosal injuries in the upper gastrointestinal tract
. As it is often difficult to discontinue low-dose aspirin administration in patients, it is therefore important from a clinical standpoint to work to prevent mucosal injuries from developing in the upper gastrointestinal tract
while continuing to administer treatment to prevent against cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events.
