REVIEW
Valter Nilton Felix
Forced pneumatic dilatation (PD) of the cardia is one of the most consecrated therapeutic measures for esophageal achalasia. The procedure only achieved better standardization with the appearance of the Rigiflex balloon. Results and predictive factors of success and failure of PD are reviewed, right after the description of the main technical aspects of the procedure. The success rates, providing control of dysphagia for about 1 year from the procedure using the Rigiflex balloon, are quite satisfactory, with success in more than 75% of patients...

BACKGROUND: Self-expandable metallic stents in the upper gastrointestinal tract are used for treating malignant esophageal or gastroduodenal outlet obstructions and fistulas. Recently, self-expandable metallic stent use has been expanded to benign esophageal or gastroduodenal strictures and post-operative complications. However, there is scarce data available regarding efficacy, long-term complications, and outcomes with the use of self-expandable metallic stent in benign disease, especially post-gastrectomy complications...

REVIEW
Hans Gregersen, Kar Man Lo
This review provides a biomechanical perspective on the pathophysiology and treatment of achalasia. The esophagus is efficient in transporting ingested material to the stomach in healthy subjects. A fine balance exists between the peristaltic forces generated in the esophageal body (which herein is defined as the preload) and the resistance in the outlet, the esophago-gastric junction (which is defined as the afterload). Achalasia is a rare esophageal disease that progressively over many years challenges esophageal efficacy...

Endoscopy allows for the screening, early diagnosis, treatment and follow up of superficial esophageal cancer. Endoscopic submucosal dissection has become the gold standard for the resection of superficial squamous cell neoplasia. Combinations of endoscopic mucosal resection and radiofrequency ablation are the mainstay of the management of Barrett's associated neoplasia. However, protruded, non-lifting or large lesions may be better managed by endoscopic submucosal dissection. Novel ablation tools, such as argon plasma coagulation with submucosal lifting and cryoablation balloons, are being developed for the treatment of residual Barrett's esophagus, since iatrogenic strictures still hamper the development of extensive circumferential resections in the esophagus...

Achalasia is a rare disease characterized by impaired lower esophageal sphincter relaxation loss and of peristalsis in the esophageal body. Endoscopic balloon dilation and laparoscopic surgical myotomy have been established as initial treatment modalities. Indications and outcomes of esophagectomy in the management of end-stage achalasia are less defined. A literature search was conducted to identify all reports on esophagectomy for end-stage achalasia between 1987 and 2017. MEDLINE, Embase, and Cochrane databases were consulted matching the terms "achalasia," "end-stage achalasia," "esophagectomy," and "esophageal resection...

BACKGROUD AND STUDY AIMS: Esophageal stricture is a common adverse event after endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) when it involves entire circumference of esophagus. We aimed to assess the effectiveness and safety of endoscopic transplantation of autologous esophageal mucosa in preventing stricture formation after circumferential ESD. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Nine patients who underwent circumferential ESD for early esophageal cancer were enrolled. After undergoing ESD, autologous esophageal mucosal patches were attached to the "ulcer surface" using hemoclips and then fixed with a covered metal mesh stent...

Pulmonary vein isolation is an effective treatment for patients with symptomatic paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. Cryoablation balloon therapy has been developed as an alternative. Cryoablation complications have primarily been related to phrenic nerve palsy, vascular complications, stroke, and others of lesser incidence. Esophageal lesions are rare and they are not yet completely understood.

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Esophageal manometry has shown its usefulness to estimate transpulmonary pressure, that is lung stress, and the intensity of spontaneous effort in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome. However, clinical uptake of esophageal manometry in ICU is still low. Thus, the purpose of review is to describe technical tips to adequately measure esophageal pressure at the bedside, and then update the most important clinical applications of esophageal manometry in ICU...

BACKGROUND: Complications can occur during esophagoscopy as a result of applied procedure in children, especially during dilation techic. Our aim was to identify cardio-respiratory alterations during esophagoscopy with or without baloon dilation under anesthesia in children, and to investigate the postoperative complications. METHODS: Prospective, observational study of endoscopic procedures in patients 0-16 years. The patients were divided into two groups: the endoscopy-dilation group (Group ED: endoscopy and balloon dilation due to esophageal stricture) and endoscopy without dilation (Group E: endoscopy for diagnostic reasons, control esophagoscopy or sclerotherapy)...

Background and study aims  A 70-year-old-man underwent an esophagectomy and posterior mediastinal reconstruction for esophageal cancer that was curatively resected. Although the patient was allowed to eat after surgery, he repeatedly vomited after drinking water or eating meals and required continuous hospitalization. An upper gastrointestinal series and endoscopic examination revealed an obstruction due to the flexure of the gastric conduit, which was repeatedly treated with endoscopic balloon dilation. Endoscopic balloon dilation was completely ineffective, however, because the obstruction was not due to a small lumen diameter, but rather to severe flexure...

Xiumei Sun, Jianxin Zhou
Esophageal pressure monitoring provides a minimally invasive method to assess the pleural pressure, which can be used to differentiate the lung and chest wall mechanics. The information of transpulmonary pressure, work of breathing, intrinsic positive end-expiratory pressure and respiratory muscle performance can facilitate the proper setting of mechanical ventilation. Esophageal pressure monitoring is still not routinely used in the clinical setting because of difficulty in esophageal balloon catheter placement and data interpretation due to esophageal pressure monitoring has certain technical requirements, and the measurement results are influenced by many factors such as airbag volume, location, esophageal wall elasticity and mediastinal organ weight...

Ignacio Ayala, Francisco Laredo, Escobar, Fernando Alberca
A 1-yr old female lion ( Panthera leo) was referred with a 10-mo history of dysphagia for solid food (meat), episodic regurgitation, and poor weight gain. Esophagoscopy confirmed an esophagitis (midesophagus) and a stricture estimated to be of 13 mm diameter. This was subsequently dilated using a 20-mm-diameter balloon for 2 min followed by a 35-mm achalasia balloon for 3 min. The etiology remains undetermined in spite of a thorough history. The animal progressed satisfactorily, reaching 124 kg after 1 yr and has had no further signs...
