  • Dysphagia is the sensation of difficulty swallowing and feeling as though food is getting stuck in the esophagus. This is a common presenting complaint of many esophageal diseases. Esophageal disease may also present as "cardiac-like" chest pain
  • Consider infectious esophagitis (e.g., candida, Herpes simplex) in the appropriate setting. Always consider esophageal malignancy when dysphagia is present. See also specific disease entities below. Esophageal Foreign Bodies
  • Clinically presents as inability to swallow, including the inability to swallow saliva; everything is regurgitated.
  • Usually occurs after eating a large bolus of meat.

    Creation Date: May 1998
    Last Revision Date: February 2002 In healthy individuals, the esophagus can be seen as a small structure in the posterior mediastinum ( figure 1 ). It normally collapses, although traces of enteric contrast may allow the identification of the lumen ( figure 2 ). An air or contrast filled, dilated esophagus suggests distal obstruction ( figure 3 ). This may be due to neoplasms ( figure 4 figure 5 ), motility disorders ( figure 6 ) or extraluminal structures, such as lymph nodes ( figure 7 CT scans play an important role in the staging of esophageal malignancies. Cancer may lead to symmetrical wall thickening of the esophageal wall ( figure 8 ). In earlier stages, the primary focus may be seen as polypoid structure or partial wall thickening ( figure 9 ). The main indication for CT scanning is the detection of regional lymph node or distant metastases ( figure 10 ). However, lymphadenopathy is not recognized by CT in up to 40 % of patients with esophageal carcinoma.

    The esophagus is a humble organ that consists of a hollow muscular tube bounded at both ends by sphincters. It has two relatively simple functions: It is a conduit for food and liquids, and it provides a barrier that protects the airway from reflux of damaging gastric contents. Despite its relative simplicity of structure and function, the esophagus gives rise to a surprisingly diverse collection of disorders, ranging from mild, uncomplicated heartburn to devastating esophageal cancer. The organ is relatively inaccessible, being tucked away in the posterior mediastinum behind the heart. Its proximity to the heart and its shared visceral enervation have given the esophagus the sometimes undeserved blame for so-called noncardiac chest pain.

A wide variety of causes, from an obstructive foreign body to a cerebrovascular accident, can disrupt the complicated processes that make up a swallow. In this article, the authors describe the many symptoms and other factors (eg, onset, progression, exacerbating conditions) that can provide clues to the cause of dysphagia. They also discuss useful diagnostic studies and how to choose among them on the basis of findings during history taking. D ysphagia (from the Greek dys

    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Mayo Clinic is among the first medical centers in the nation to treat early cancers of the esophagus, including Barrett esophagus, with two new treatment options photodynamic therapy (PDT) and radiofrequency ablation (RFA). Barrett esophagus is a premalignant condition that may result in esophageal cancer. It can occur after chronic damage from acid reflux when the normal lining of the esophagus is replaced with a red lining called "Barrett." This red lining secretes mucus and is therefore more resistant to acid than the normal white lining and it can become cancerous in some cases. Until now, there have been few treatment options for Barrett esophagus. The primary option has been surveillance by endoscopy to search for changes in the lining of the esophagus so that cancer or dysplasia, a pre-cancerous condition, can be detected in the earliest stages. The incidence of esophageal cancer has tripled in the last 20 years, with early stages of it occurring in younger patients. Esophageal cancer arising from Barrett esophagus is the second fastest rising cancer in the U.S. Approximately 5-10 percent of patients with Barrett esophagus develop cancer.
