17 Possible Causes for Esophagoscopy Abnormal, Tertiary Contractions of the Esophagus

  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

    BACKGROUND & AIMS: Colonic fermentation of carbohydrates is known to influence gastric and esophageal motility in healthy subjects. This study investigated the effects of colonic fermentation induced by oral administration of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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]

  • Esophageal Obstruction

    Esophageal obstruction is caused by benign or malignant lesions within the lumen, wall or outside the wall of the esophagus. These lesions block the passage of food leading to dysphagia with consequent nutritional deficiencies. The diagnosis of the condition depends on history, clinical examination, esophagoscopy, and[…][symptoma.com]

  • Plummer-Vinson Syndrome

    The esophagus showed tremor accompanied by secondary and tertiary contractions but, otherwise, no pathological changes.[webview.isho.jp] The authors believe that these changes were due to abnormal activity of the esophagus caused by disturbances in the innervation system of the organ.[webview.isho.jp]

  • Zenker Diverticulum

    Esophagoscopy continued distally down to the gastroesophageal junction with no other abnormalities noted.[medicine.uiowa.edu] The red arrow indicates extrinsic compression in the posterior wall of the thoracic esophagus at the top of the aortic arch together with multiple tertiary contractions in[scielo.org.co] […] the distal third of the organ, which are compatible with an aging esophagus.[scielo.org.co]

  • Phlegmonous Esophagitis

    Nonpropulsive peristaltic waves, ranging from mild tertiary contractions to severe segmental spasms, are an early finding.[basicmedicalkey.com] The esophagus is often dilated, with a loss of effective peristalsis.[basicmedicalkey.com]
