Heller miotomy

Anca Dimitriu, Cristian Gheorghe
High resolution manometry (HRM) is currently the gold standard for the diagnosis of achalasia and other functional esophageal disorders. All patients accusing dysphagia should be endoscopically evaluated prior to manometric investigations in order to rule out pseudoachalasia. The Chicago HRM classification has led to a subclassification of three manometric types of achalasia that seem to have different results to treatment. None of the actual achalasia treatment options are curative. Type II achalasia patients respond best to all treatment options compared to those with types I and III...

INTRODUCTION: The authors report their experience about the intraoperative manometry in the achalasia surgical treatment. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We have considered 239 patients with achalasia observed from 1994 to 2006; only 79 continued the path diagnostic therapeutic and 31 underwent Heller longitudinal miotomy, with Dor anti-reflux plastic in 25 patients and in 6 Nissen anti-reflux plastic. In 24 we performed the intraoperative manometry (MI) recording the high pressure areas...

The Authors report their experience on 76 patients managed for oesophageal achalasia from 1973-1997. 65 patients have been surgically treated with Heller miotomy (19 cases) or miotomy with antireflux procedures (46 cases); 11 patients underwent an endoscopic pneumatic dilation. 54 patients, 43 surgically and 11 endoscopically treated, have been followed for a mean length of time of 6 years and 6 months. Complete cure or significant improvement of symptoms have been noted in 86% and 72.7% of patients treated respectively with surgery or pneumatic dilatation...

From 1962 to 1992 sixtythree patients with esophageal achalasia underwent primary surgical treatment. The intervention performed was a cardiomiotomy according to Heller in 20 patients (Group A), a cardiomiotomy according to Heller with anti-reflux procedure according to Lortat-Jacob in 12 patients (Group B), a cardiomiotomy according to Heller with fundoplicatio according to Dor in 31 patients (Group C). Preoperative study was performed by radiological evaluation in patients of Group A, while patients of Group B and Group C were submitted also to endoscopy and esophageal manometry...

Extramucosal myotomy involving the external longitudinal and internal circular layers of the musculature of the esophagus represent the surgical therapy in patients with dysphagia and regurgitation or with angina-like chest pain secondary to functional abnormalities of the musculature of the esophagel body and sphincters. Surgery has a palliative function, because cures symptoms and complication such a diverticula, but not the disease. Modern surgical techniques also prevent recurrence of symptoms and complications are minimal with better long-term results than conservative therapy...
