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...
