An endoscope is a slender,  flexible tube equipped with  lenses and a light  source.  Illumination is done by the  help of a number of optical  fibres. Reflected light rays are  collected by CCD( Charge  coupled device) and electrical  signals are produced, which  are fed to the video monitor to  get image. Thorough one channel of  endoscope water and air is  conducted to wash and dry  the surgical site. ENDOSCOPY
