38 Possible Causes for Esophageal Motor Dysfunction

  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

    An increased number of TLESR episodes, combined or not with an impaired LES basal tone or with gastric or esophageal motor dysfunction, may lead to GERD, but the underlying[doi.org] […] mechanism of GERD is considered to be transient lower esophageal sphincter relaxation (TLESR)[ 7 ] which may account for the majority of reflux episodes, in patients with esophagitis[doi.org]

  • Diabetic Autonomic Neuropathy

    motor dysfunction, diabetic gastroparesis, gallbladder atony, diabetic enteropathy, colonic hypomotility, anorectal dysfunction; and 4) genitourinary tract: diabetic cystopathy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] intolerance, perioperative instability, sudden death; 2) respiratory system: reduced ventilatory drive to hypercapnia/hypoxemia, sleep apnea; 3) gastrointestinal tract: esophageal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Traction Diverticulum of the Esophagus

  • Dyspepsia

    Gastric Motor Dysfunction Delayed gastric emptying Impaired gastric fundus relaxation after eating 5.[slideshare.net] Gastroesophageal Acid Reflux Reduced lower esophageal sphincter (LES) tone Frequent transient LES relaxations Overeating and aerophagia Impaired esophageal body motility[slideshare.net]

Thorax 29 : 666-672. 2.[hon.ch] Motor dysfunction of the esophageal muscularis propria results in an esophageal segment which cannot conduct peristaltic waves and thus increased pressure and diverticulum-generation[pathwaymedicine.org] […] arise due to esophageal motor dysfunction or mechanical distal obstruction • Many patients are asymptomatic when diagnosed • When symptomatic their symptoms are difficult[docsity.com]

  • Systemic Scleroderma

    Motor dysfunction is the most prevalent esophageal damage in patients with scleroderma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Presbyesophagus

    This review will be limited to a discussion of esophageal motor dysfunction associated with systemic diseases.[jamanetwork.com] The systemic disorders known to be associated with esophageal motor dysfunction can be classified broadly under four major categories as follows: (1) connective tissue diseases[jamanetwork.com] Primary esophageal disorders have been described elsewhere in this symposium.[jamanetwork.com]

  • Gut Dysmotility

    Small bowel but not esophageal motor dysfunction was more frequently associated with a co-existent rectal evacuatory disorder (P 0.01).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
