Endoscopy has been used as a procedure to explore and visualize the interiors of the human body since the early 1800s. In 1805, Bozzini, a German physician, used a ‘lichtleiter’ to examine the genitourinary (GU) tract. Later, in 1855, another physician named Desormeaux added a light source using a light lamp for better visualization. With time, endoscopes witnessed many advancements for better diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Earlier, rigid endoscopes made up of metal tubes were used for gastroscopy, but the light source was inadequate to perform the procedure. Later, with the invention of Edison’s incandescent electric light bulb, the issue of light source got resolved somehow; however, the rigid structure of the gastroscope was still not ideal for the examination of the stomach.
