Cervical osteophytosis and spine posture: contribution to swallow disorders and symptoms.

Curr Opin Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2018 Dec;26(6):375-381

Department of Otolaryngology.

Purpose Of Review: The article reviews the effects of cervical osteophytosis and spine posture on swallowing, and how they can cause dysphagia.

Recent Findings: Cerivical osteophytosis which is a bony overgrowth of the cervical spines, it affects the swallowing through different mechanisms, including direct mechanical compression of the pharynx and esophagus, disturbances of normal epiglottic tilt over the inlet of the larynx by the osteophytes at C3-C4 level, inflammatory reactions in the tissues around the esophagus and cricopharyngeal spasm. Also, cervical spine posture in normal individuals could affect the swallowing mechanism by disturbance of the sphincteric action of the larynx and upper esophageal sphincter. Read More

High Resolution Impedance Manometry: A Necessity or Luxury in Esophageal Motility Disorder?

Am J Case Rep 2018 Aug 23;19:998-1003. Epub 2018 Aug 23.

Department of Surgery, Universiti Kebagsaan Malaysia Medical Centre, Cheras, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

BACKGROUND The esophagus can be affected by a variety of disorders that may be primary or secondary to another pathologic process, but the resulting symptoms are usually not pathognomonic for a specific problem, making diagnosis and further management somewhat challenging. High resolution impedance manometry (HRiM) has established itself as a valuable tool in evaluating esophageal motility disorder. HRiM is superior in comparison with conventional water perfused manometric recordings in delineating and tracking the movement of functionally defined contractile elements of the esophagus and its sphincters, and in distinguishing the luminal pressurization of spastic esophageal contraction from a trapped bolus.

Management of esophageal motility disorders in children : a review.

Acta Gastroenterol Belg 2018 Apr-Jun;81(2):295-304

Department of Gastroenterology, Hepatopancreatology and Digestive Oncology, Erasme Hospital, Université Libre de Bruxelles, Brussels, Belgium.

Diagnostic criteria for esophageal motor disorders have recently been updated with the advent of high-resolution manometry that gives a precise mapping of peristaltic abnormalities and an indirect view of bolus transit problems. Achalasia, the best-defined motor disorder, is now divided in subsets of manometric phenotypes that predict outcome of treatment and guide our therapeutic approach. Pharmacological therapy using smooth muscle relaxants for spastic esophageal disorders remains poorly effective and used only as a bridge to more effective therapies : endoscopic balloon dilation and surgical myotomy are both effective therapies in achalasia, myotomy being considered as the preferred approach in children because it is aimed to be definitive, while dilations usually have to be repeated.

Distal Esophageal Spasm: A Review.

Am J Med 2018 Sep 29;131(9):1034-1040. Epub 2018 Mar 29.

Division of Gastroenterology & Hepatology, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston.

Distal esophageal spasm is a rare motility disorder presenting principally with nonobstructive dysphagia and noncardiac chest pain. In symptomatic patients, the manometric diagnosis is made when >10% of the wet swallows have simultaneous and/or premature contractions intermixed with normal peristalsis. We characterize manometry and barium as complementary diagnostic approaches, and given the intermittent nature of the disorder, one should be always aware that it is almost impossible to rule out spasm.

Navigated retrograde endoscopic myotomy (REM) for the treatment of therapy-resistant achalasia.

Neurogastroenterol Motil 2018 Apr 16;30(4):e13252. Epub 2017 Nov 16.

Department of Clinical Medicine, University of Bergen, Bergen, Norway.

Background: In achalasia, muscle spasm may involve the proximal esophagus. When the muscle spasm is located in the proximal esophagus, conventional per oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) may not be sufficient to relieve symptoms. In this paper, we describe retrograde endoscopic myotomy (REM) as a novel approach to perform myotomy of the proximal esophagus, with the application of a navigation tool for anatomical guidance during REM.

Esophagogastric junction outflow obstruction is often associated with coexistent abnormal esophageal body motility and abnormal bolus transit.

Dis Esophagus 2017 Oct;30(10):1-4

Currently, the diagnosis of esophageal motility disorders is in part based upon a hierarchical algorithm in which abnormalities of the esophagogastric junction (EGJ) is prioritized. An important metric in evaluating the EGJ is the integrated relaxation pressure (IRP). Patients who do not have achalasia but are found to have an elevated IRP are diagnosed with EGJ outflow obstruction. Read More
