loss, and dysphagia. The esophagogastroduodenoscopy reveals
that the patient has low-grade Barrett’s esophagus, GERD
with reflux esophagitis and a non-obstructing hiatal hernia.
Patient was also incidentally diagnosed with Crest Syndrome
(CRST), which correlates with his complaint of dysphagia.
After the procedure, the patient was noted to have several
PVC’s on his EKG. These resolved shortly after the patient
arrived in the recovery room. Based on the results of the
detailed history, detailed, exam, and straight forward medical
decision making, it was decided that the patient could be discharged
