  • 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] , 4, 5] Features of achalasia depicted at barium study under fluoroscopic guidance include the following (see also the images below): Failure of peristalsis to clear the esophagus[emedicine.com]

  • Esophageal Obstruction

    Abstract Guar gum is a high polymer carbohydrate that undergoes considerable expansion and thickening when placed in water. Because of this property, guar gum has been used in "weight loss" tablets marketed by several pharmaceutical manufacturers. These tablets undergo expansion in the stomach and are[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Nutcracker Esophagus

    There are multiple tertiary contractions in the distal esophagus (black arrow) on this barium esophagram.[learningradiology.com] Although the presence of diffuse spasm or tertiary contractions may suggest the presence of the underlying motor disorder in patients with nutcracker esophagus, we conclude[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] esophagus and scleroderma esophagus Representing uncoordinated tertiary contractions of the esophagus, corkscrew esophagus is associated with diffuse esophageal spasm Diffuse[learningradiology.com]

  • Presbyesophagus

    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] There is thus obstruction to the outflow of the esophagus which dilates. Early, there is disordered peristalsis with multiple tertiary contractions.[mycourses.med.harvard.edu] Tertiary contractions with cork screw esophagus. Dysphagia. Dilated atonic lower 2/3 of the esophagus (smooth Reflux. muscles).[slideshare.net]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    Myotonic dystrophy types 1 (DM1) and 2 (DM2/proximal myotonic myopathy PROMM) are dominantly inherited disorders with unusual multisystemic clinical features. The authors have characterized the clinical and molecular features of DM2/PROMM, which is caused by a CCTG repeat expansion in intron 1 of the zinc finger[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chagas Disease

    INTRODUCTION: Serological cross-reactivity between leishmaniasis and Chagas disease, especially at low titers, leads to difficulties of the seroepidemiological interpretation. METHODS: We have studied the ability of urea as a chaotrope to select high-avidity antibodies in IgG ELISA, thus reducing low-avidity IgG[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Corkscrew Esophagus

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]
