12 Possible Causes for Eructation, Tertiary Contractions of the Esophagus

  • Esophageal Achalasia

    The barium swallow showed a mildly dilated esophagus with tertiary contractions, delayed emptying of the esophagus, and a narrowed gastroesophageal junction ( Fig. 1 ).[jnmjournal.org] […] of barium with the patient in the recumbent position Antegrade and retrograde motion of barium in the esophagus secondary to uncoordinated, nonpropulsive, tertiary contractions[emedicine.com] […] pooling or stasis of barium in the esophagus when the esophagus has become atonic or non-contractile (a late feature in the disease) uncoordinated, non-propulsive, tertiary[radiopaedia.org]

  • Corkscrew Esophagus

    There are multiple tertiary contractions in the distal esophagus (black arrow) on this barium esophagram.[learningradiology.com] Tertiary contractions with cork screw esophagus. Dysphagia. Dilated atonic lower 2/3 of the esophagus (smooth Reflux. muscles).[slideshare.net] This finding, referred to as a “corkscrew” esophagus, can be seen in diffuse esophageal spasm from abnormal, tertiary contractions.[nejm.org]

  • Esophageal Diverticula 

    Postoperative barium swallow showed a regular transit of the contrast through the LES and few tertiary contractions in the lower esophagus.[file.scirp.org] […] from thoracic esophagus Abnormal: Tertiary contractions, presbyesophagus: Nonpropulsive contractions Diffuse esophageal spasm Nutcracker esophagus Decreased peristalsis resulting[radiologyassistant.nl] Esophageal peristalsis Normal: Primary contraction: Propels bolus through the esophagus Secondary contraction: Follows primary contraction and propels any remaining bolus[radiologyassistant.nl]

  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

    “Wind” — usually meaning belching/eructation or distension and a desire to belch/eructate — is a predominant complaint of many patients with GERD as well as with other upper[worldgastroenterology.org]

  • Esophageal Varices on Barium Swallow

  • Pharyngeal Disease

    Although present in neurologic diseases with a high incidence of dysphagia, it is unclear if sialorrhea and eructation are related to disturbed deglutition. 26, 27, 28 Top[nature.com] The barium swallow may be normal or show nonpropagated contractions (also called tertiary contractions).[nature.com] Other clinical features evident in neurogenic diseases include sialorrhea (hypersalivation), which can be present in diseases such ALS and PD, and eructation (excessive burping[nature.com]
