BACKGROUND: Foregut duplication cysts are rare congenital anomalies that require surgical intervention with approximately 10%-15% of all gastrointestinal duplication cysts originating from the esophagus. Consensus is lacking among surgeons regarding closure of the esophageal muscle layer after resection of an esophageal duplication cyst and long-term outcomes are poorly documented. Therefore, we conducted the first study comparing complication rates in patients undergoing closure versus nonclosure of the esophageal muscle layer after esophageal duplication cyst resection...

AIM: To analyze the results of surgical treatment of patients with benign diseases and injuries of the esophagus. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We summarized the experience of different endoscopic interventions in 159 patients with various benign diseases and perforation of the esophagus. Patients with achalasia (72 cases) underwent videolaparoscopic Geller's esophagomyotomy with anterior hemiesophagofundoplication by Dor. Video-assisted thoracoscopic extirpation of the esophagus with simultaneous or delayed esophagocolo/gastroplasty was performed in 56 patients with post-ambustial cicatricial stenosis of the esophagus...

Zenker's diverticulum is a form of esophageal and pharyngeal obstruction located at the Killian-Laimer triangle. It is relatively common in elderly man (seventh or eighth decade of life), and its pathophysiology is not completely understood, albeit theories regarding dysfunction of the upper esophageal sphincter were reported. The main symptoms are dysphagia and odynophagia, but it can complicate to aspiration and perforation of the pharyngeal pouch; also, it can be asymptomatic. Diagnosis is provided through a barium esophagogram...

A 78-year-old man with a Kommerell diverticulum and aberrant right subclavian artery was admitted for thoracic pain and severe malnutrition due to esophageal compression. We performed an atypical surgical procedure including extra-anatomical debranching and direct aortic repair, trying to avoid deep hypothermic circulatory arrest and shorten the cardiopulmonary bypass time.

Esophageal lipoma is an uncommon benign tumor of the esophagus and accounts for only 0.4% of all benign neoplasms of the gastrointestinal system. The majority of these are located in the cervical part; only very few are located in the lower third of the esophagus. We discuss the case of a 37-year-old female who presented with dysphagia and an esophageal lipoma located in the lower third of the esophagus. The patient underwent right mini-thoracotomy and enucleation of lipoma. Histopathologic examination revealed adipose tissue with a collection of matured adipose tissue...

As a rare hypopharyngeal diverticulum, Killian-Jamieson diverticulum (KJD) is usually incidentally detected, small, asymptomatic and likely to be misdiagnosed as a thyroid nodule. In order to avoid unnecessary treatments resulting from misdiagnosis, principles to distinguish between esophageal diverticula and thyroid nodules should be noted clearly. The current study presents a case of an asymptomatic unilateral KJD that mimicked a calcified thyroid nodule. In the current case, a 40-year-old man presented with a 'suspected malignant thyroid nodule' in the left thyroid gland, and underwent left thyroid lobectomy and a neck exploration...

PURPOSE: Recurrent trachea-esophageal fistula (recTEF) is a frequent (5%-10%) complication of congenital TEF (conTEF) and esophageal atresia (EA) repair. In addition, postoperative acquired TEF (acqTEF) can occur in addition to or even in the absence of prior conTEF in the setting of esophageal anastomotic complications. Reliable repair often proves difficult by endoluminal or standard surgical techniques. We present the results of an approach that reliably identifies the TEF and facilitates airway closure as well as repair of associated tracheal and esophageal problems...

The transoral division of the esophageal-diverticula septum with a linear stapler, with CO2 laser, or with harmonic scalpel under rigid endoscopy has revolutionized the surgical management of Zenker's diverticula. Nevertheless, the open approach still plays a role in select cases. Our goals are to illustrate the techniques and the results of our tailored approach to the surgical management of Zenker's diverticula in U.S. veterans.

BACKGROUND: Gastrointestinal symptoms are frequent in multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN) 2B and may be related to megacolon. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this article is to review the clinical features of patients with MEN 2B, particularly megacolon. METHODS: We used natural language processing of electronic medical records of Mayo Clinic patients over 20 years: Eight patients with definite MEN 2B were identified; of these, four had megacolon...

INTRODUCTION: Flexible endoscopic treatment is one of the alternative approaches for the management of Zenker's diverticum. The present paper shows our short-term and long-term results with flexible endoscopic cricopharyngeal myotomy/septotomy. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective analysis of our experience in patients with Zenker's diverticulum treated using a flexible endoscope, assisted by a flexible diverticuloscope, between 2002 and 2015. Myotomy/septotomy was performed with a needle-knife papillotome under deep sedation or general anesthesia...

The esophagus is one of the areas of the gastrointestinal tract, for which therapeutic concepts have changed the most over the last two decades. The most decisive advance is the development of endoscopic resection techniques for early esophageal carcinomas. These methods provide excellent short- and long-term results combined with very low morbidity and negligible mortality rates in comparison with surgical esophagectomy, especially in case of mucosal Barrett's adenocarcinoma. In addition, the endoscopic myotomy techniques in Zenker's diverticulum and spastic achalasia are new, attractive endoscopic treatment modalities...

AIM: To analyze the results of endoscopic interventions for benign diseases and injuries of the esophagus. MATERIAL AND METHODS: 159 patients with benign diseases and perforation of the esophagus were operated. There were 72 (45.3%) cases of achalasia, 56 (35.2%) with post-ambustial stenosis of esophagus, 14 (8.8%) with esophageal perforation, 13 (8.2%) with leuomyoma of esophagus and 4 (2.5%) with diverticulum of thoracic esophagus. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION: In long-term period 56 patients with achalasia were followed-up after laparoscopic Heller cardiomyotomy with Dor fundoplication...

Tracheal diverticulum (TD) defined as a typical benign out-pouching of the tracheal wall due to structural weakness, congenital or acquired in origin, resulting in paratracheal air cysts. It is rarely diagnosed in clinical practice with only limited reports in the literature. Most cases found incidentally in the postmortem examination and located on the right side. Uncomplicated TDs are usually asymptomatic and when symptoms have occurred, they usually present with non-specific symptoms like pharyngeal discomfort, cough, dyspnea, and recurrent respiratory infection due to either the compression of adjacent organs or secondary bacterial infection...

Killian-Jamieson diverticulum (KJD) is a rare cervical esophageal abnormality. Transcervical approach has been the main treatment modality to prevent recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) injury. We presented two cases of patients confirmed with KJD and were managed successfully under rigid endoscope. The new technique and idea were described in detail. Under rigid laryngoscope, the septum between the true esophagus lumen and diverticulum can be exposed clearly. A microscope equipped with CO2 LASER system offered precise and focused point cutting energy to the septum...

OBJECTIVES: Gastroesophageal reflux may contribute to the development of cricopharyngeal dysfunction and Zenker's diverticulum. Common dictum suggests that if upper esophageal sphincter tone is reduced through cricopharyngeal myotomy, symptoms of laryngopharyngeal reflux may worsen. We hypothesized that patients who undergo myotomy should show decreased dysphagia symptoms with concurrent worsening of reflux symptomatology and that these changes would be greater in those patients undergoing complete versus partial myotomy...
