Esophageal diverticulum: New perspectives in the era of minimally invasive endoscopic treatment.

World J Gastroenterol 2019 Mar;25(12):1457-1464

Division of Gastroenterology, Niigata University Medical and Dental Hospital, Niigata 951-8510, Japan.

Esophageal diverticula are rare conditions that cause esophageal symptoms, such as dysphagia, regurgitation, and chest pain. They are classified according to their location and characteristic pathophysiology into three types: epiphrenic diverticulum, Zenker's diverticulum, and Rokitansky diverticulum. The former two disorders take the form of protrusions, and symptomatic cases require interventional treatment. Read More

Open Diverticulectomy and Cricopharyngotomy for Symptomatic Zenker's Diverticulum after Endoscopic Diverticuloesophagostomy.

Am Surg 2019 Mar;85(3):284-287

Two of the accepted treatments for symptomatic Zenker's diverticula are open resection of the diverticulum with cricopharyngotomy and transoral, endoscopic diverticuloesophagostomy with cricopharyngotomy. We report our experience with open surgical resection of the diverticulum with repeat cricopharyngotomy in patients with persistent symptoms after endoscopic diverticuloesophagostomy. This is a retrospective review of patients who underwent open surgical resection of the diverticulum, with repeat cricopharyngotomy in patients with persistent symptoms after endoscopic diverticuloesophagostomy.

The laparoscopic approach for epiphrenic diverticula with achalasia.

Ann R Coll Surg Engl 2019 Apr 18;101(4):256-260. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

Zen Hospital , Mumbai , India.

Introduction: Epiphrenic diverticulum (ED) is an uncommon disease that is invariably associated with an underlying oesophageal motility disorder such as achalasia. Management of ED should always be accompanied by treatment of the underlying motility disorder to prevent recurrence of symptoms. Traditionally, ED were approached via a left thoracotomy but as laparoscopy offers better access to the distal oesophagus, its use is becoming more widespread. Read More

Resection of esophageal diverticulum through uniportal video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery.

Ann Transl Med 2018 May;6(10):179

Thoracic Surgery Unit, Istituto Oncologico del Mediterraneo, Viagrande, Italy.

Open surgery remains the standard strategy for management of esophageal diverticulum in symptomatic patients. However, in the last years an increasing number of minimally invasive approaches have been proposed for this issue in order to reduce the surgical trauma and favor a fast return to daily activity. Herein, we describe a novel technique as uniportal video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) for performing resection of esophageal diverticulum. Read More
