29 Possible Causes for Regurgitation, Tertiary Contractions of the Esophagus

  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

    The ability of DM patients to feel acid regurgitation may be decreased.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Here, we report a case of a 43-year-old man who presented with belching, regurgitation, chest tightness and dyspnea for 18 mo, which became gradually more severe.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract The prevalence of the symptoms of reflux (hearthburn and acid regurgitation) and of gastro-esophageal reflux disease is high.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Esophageal Achalasia

    Regurgitation of food and saliva is another trait of this disease. Affected individuals also describe nocturnal regurgitation that may lead to aspiration.[symptoma.com] 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] We describe a patient who developed an ataxic sensory syndrome associated with xerophthalmia and progressive dysphagia with regurgitation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Nutcracker Esophagus

    Clinical findings in patients with and without reflux included chest pain (52.9% and 51.4%), dysphagia (58.8% and 42.8%), and heartburn (64.7% and 42.8%), followed by regurgitation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There are multiple tertiary contractions in the distal esophagus (black arrow) on this barium esophagram.[learningradiology.com] , chest pain, Chicago classification, dysphagia, endoscopic clips, endoscopy, esophagus, GEJ, HRM, methylene blue, mucostomy, nutcracker esophagus, POEM, pulmonary vein, regurgitation[sages.org]

This occurred with both solids and liquids.[consultant360.com]

  • Esophageal Spasm

    This was associated with persistent or emerging heartburn or regurgitation in four patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There are multiple tertiary contractions in the distal esophagus (black arrow) on this barium esophagram.[learningradiology.com] Progressive dysphagia for both solids and liquids is the major symptom of achalasia; other symptoms include regurgitation, chest pain, and nocturnal cough.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Presbyesophagus

    Botulinum toxin provides relief from symptoms of pain, dysphagia and regurgitation by relaxing the LES.[symptoma.com] 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.[articles.chicagotribune.com] Fig. 6.1 Tertiary contraction of the esophagus.[entokey.com]

  • Esophageal Diverticula 

    Even after neutralizing the acid with medicines, the rest of the stomach juices are regurgitated because of the presence of hiatal hernia.[atlasofscience.org] 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]

  • Idiopathic Achalasia

    Among the main symptoms, active and passive regurgitation showed significant correlation with LES relaxation pressure when compared to other individual symptoms using Pearson's[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] 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] Differential diagnosis A majority of patients are misdiagnosed as having reflux disease given regurgitation.[orpha.net]
