Sonde enteroscopy provides the only opportunity to directly view the contents and mucosa of potentially the entire small intestine. Although the instrumentation and technique are less than ideal, sonde enteroscopy can be a useful adjunct to the evaluation of small intestinal disease. A comprehensive review of this labor-intensive procedure from patient selection to its outcome is provided in this article.
