30 Possible Causes for Dysphagia, Tertiary Contractions of the Esophagus

  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

    Outcomes selected were recurrent or persistent postoperative dysphagia and an abnormal 24-hour pH test result.[] We used the total number of patients in the study and the follow-up duration to calculate dysphagia rates.[] The case of a patient with intermittent dysphagia and suspected GERD is discussed. Pharyngoesophageal scintigraphy was performed. Reflux test was negative.[]

  • Esophageal Achalasia

    EA must be considered in any DS patient presenting with dysphagia.[] The barium swallow showed a mildly dilated esophagus with tertiary contractions, delayed emptying of the esophagus, and a narrowed gastroesophageal junction ( Fig. 1 ).[] […] of barium with the patient in the recumbent position Antegrade and retrograde motion of barium in the esophagus secondary to uncoordinated, nonpropulsive, tertiary contractions[]

  • Esophageal Obstruction

    […] palliation of dysphagia.[] Secondary endpoints were relief of dysphagia measured by a dysphagia score (grade 0 no dysphagia, grade 1 able to eat solid food, grade 2 semisolids only, grade 3 liquids[] Improvement in dysphagia was achieved in 34 of 35 patients. The average dysphagia score decreased from 3.1 (dysphagia to liquids) to 0.6 (essentially normal diet).[]

  • Nutcracker Esophagus

    Since the disorder is frequently heralded by alarming symptoms such as chest pain and dysphagia, diagnosis should be made as soon as possible.[] There are multiple tertiary contractions in the distal esophagus (black arrow) on this barium esophagram.[] Keyword(s): azygous vein, balloon dilation, barium swallow, Botox, chest pain, Chicago classification, dysphagia, endoscopic clips, endoscopy, esophagus, GEJ, HRM, methylene[]

  • Corkscrew Esophagus

    All aspects of dysphagia are covered, from anatomy and physiology to patient care.[] There are multiple tertiary contractions in the distal esophagus (black arrow) on this barium esophagram.[] Among topics presented are: Etiology of Dysphagia; Dysphagia Screening and Assessment Instruments; The Modified Barium Swallow; Functional Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing[]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    The subjects were classified into three groups; patients without dysphagia (group 1), patients with dysphagia (group 2), and healthy participants (group 3).[] Dysphagia as a Presenting Symptom of Myasthenia Gravis—Case Report ABSTRACT Dysphagia is a common symptom in otolaryngology, but neuromuscular causes are rarely diagnostic[] Dysphagia is a frequent symptom in patients with MG, 6% to 15% of whom present with dysphagia as the first symptom of the disease,” the research team wrote.[]

  • Presbyesophagus

    Among the dysphagia, esophageal dysphagia occurs more commonly in the aged.[] I was diagnosed as having tertiary contractions of the esophagus and slight gastritis. I have substernal chest pain that doesn't go away after eating.[] Fig. 6.1 Tertiary contraction of the esophagus.[]

  • Esophageal Spasm

    Four of five patients had episodic nonexertional midchest pain; two patients experienced intermittent dysphagia.[] There are multiple tertiary contractions in the distal esophagus (black arrow) on this barium esophagram.[] Finally, an esophagectomy was performed because of sever dysphagia accompanied by persisting weight loss.[]

  • Plummer-Vinson Syndrome

    Plummer-Vinson syndrome, comprising a triad of dysphagia, iron deficiency anaemia and cricoid webs, is rarely reported in children.[] The esophagus showed tremor accompanied by secondary and tertiary contractions but, otherwise, no pathological changes.[] AN iron-deficiency anemia associated with chronic dysphagia and glossitis in women between forty and fifty years of age is now known as side-ropenic dysphagia.[]

  • Zenker Diverticulum

    Key words: Zencker Diverticulum, Deglutition Disorders, Case Studies (MeSH).[] […] have relatively little dysphagia.[] Dysphagia 17 34 39 PubMed Google Scholar 2.[]
