Non-Cardiac Chest Pain.

Authors:
Thomas Frieling

Visc Med 2018 Apr 12;34(2):92-96. Epub 2018 Apr 12.

Department of Gastroenterology, Hepatology, Infectiology, Neurogastroenterology, Hematology, Oncology, and Palliative Medicine, HELIOS-Clinic Krefeld, Krefeld, Germany.

Background: Non-cardiac chest pain (NCCP) is recurrent angina pectoris-like pain without evidence of coronary heart disease in conventional diagnostic evaluation. The prevalence of NCCP is up to 70% and may be detected (in this order) at all levels of the medical health care system (general practitioner, emergency department, chest pain unit, coronary care). Reduction of quality of life due to NCCP is comparable, and partially even higher, to that caused by cardiac chest pain. Read More

[Dysphagia from a gastroenterologist's perspective].

Dtsch Med Wochenschr 2018 May 23;143(9):660-671. Epub 2018 Apr 23.

Swallowing disorders (dysphagia) comprise a common cause of medical consultation and are defined as a subjective sensation of difficulty or abnormality of swallowing. In the initial step, a clear differentiation of dysphagia from odynophagia and globus sensation for further diagnostic procedures is mandatory. The careful questioning of patients symptoms and complaints is often helpful for the differentiation of oropharyngeal and esophageal dysphagia. Read More

Lymphocytic esophagitis: Still an enigma a decade later.

World J Gastroenterol 2017 Feb;23(6):949-956

Carol Rouphael, Department of General Internal Medicine, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, OH 44195, United States.

Lymphocytic esophagitis (LE) is a clinicopathologic entity first described by Rubio et al in 2006. It is defined as peripapillary intraepithelial lymphocytosis with spongiosis and few or no granulocytes on esophageal biopsy. This definition is not widely accepted and the number of lymphocytes needed to make the diagnosis varied in different studies. Read More

What is the role of radiological testing of lower esophageal sphincter function?

Ann N Y Acad Sci 2016 09 6;1380(1):67-77. Epub 2016 Aug 6.

Unified Patient Project, Medical University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria.

Radiological fluoroscopic evaluation remains the primary imaging modality of choice to evaluate patients with swallowing disorders, despite the increasing availability and technical advantages of nonradiological techniques and the current radiological focus on cross-sectional imaging studies, such as computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. The radiological swallowing evaluation should be tailored to assess the entire upper gastrointestinal tract, including the lower esophageal sphincter. Fluoroscopy enables the simultaneous assessment of esophageal motility disorders, as well as structural pathologies, including strictures, webs, rings, diverticula, and tumors. Read More

Intralesional steroid injection therapy in the management of resistant gastrointestinal strictures.

World J Gastrointest Endosc 2010 Feb;2(2):61-8

Rakesh Kochhar, Kuchhangi Suresh Poornachandra, Department of Gastroenterology, Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh 160012, India.

Esophageal strictures are a problem frequently encountered by gastroenterologists. Dilation has been the customary treatment for benign esophageal strictures, and dilation techniques have advanced over the years. Depending on their characteristics and the response to treatment, esophageal strictures can be classified into two types: 1, simple (Schatzki rings, webs, peptic injury, and following sclerotherapy) - these are easily amenable to dilation, with a low recurrence rate after initial treatment; and 2, complex (caused by caustic ingestion, radiation injury, anastomotic strictures, and photodynamic therapy) - these are difficult to dilate and are associated with higher recurrence rates.

Morphological findings in dynamic swallowing studies of symptomatic patients.

Eur Radiol 2002 May 26;12(5):1139-44. Epub 2002 Jan 26.

Department of Radiology, University of Vienna, 1090 Vienna, Austria.

The aim of this study was to assess the role of videofluoroscopy in the detection of structural abnormalities of the pharynx and esophagus in patients with different symptoms of impaired deglutition. Dynamic radiographic recording of deglutition was performed in 3193 consecutive patients (1578 men, 1615 women; mean age 54 years) suffering from dysphagia, suspicion of aspiration, globus sensation, and non-cardiac chest pain. We assessed different structural lesions from the oral cavity to the esophagus and classified them into eight categories. Read More

Authors:
R W Tobin

J Clin Gastroenterol 1998 Dec;27(4):285-95

Division of Gastroenterology, University of Washington, Seattle 98195, USA.

Rings, webs, and diverticula are among the most common anatomic anomalies of the esophagus. Although these structural lesions are often asymptomatic, patients can develop significant problems with dysphagia, regurgitation, and aspiration. This article discusses the epidemiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and therapy of esophageal rings, webs, and diverticula with emphasis on the clinical, diagnostic, and therapeutic strategies involved in caring for patients with these conditions.

[Deglutition disorders].

Authors:
E K Walther

HNO 1998 Aug;46(8):712-28

Universitäts-HNO-Klinik Bonn.

Dysphagia is related to the impairment of food passage from the mouth to the stomach. Globus pharyngis implies the frequent and often painful sensation of a lump in the throat that usually does not interfere with swallowing and may even be relieved by food intake. The diagnosis is based upon a careful history, clinical examination, endoscopy, dynamic imaging (videofluoroscopy, cinematography, videosonography) and electrophysiologic procedures (including pharyngoesophageal manometry, electromyography and pH determinations).

Evaluation and management of diseases of the esophagus.

Am J Otolaryngol 1981 Nov;2(4):336-44

Current methods to evaluate patients with esophageal disease include barium swallow with fluoroscopy, which is useful in demonstrating structural defects. Disordered motility is better evaluated with a cine-esophagram. Recent application of radioisotopes has been useful in evaluation of esophageal reflux and the post-treatment of achalasia. Read More

Dig Dis Sci 1979 Dec;24(12):959-63

A patient is presented with Barrett's esophagus (lower esophagus lined with columnar epithelium) who also has a band of columnar epithelium in the upper esophagus separated from that below by normal squamous epithelium in the midesophagus. The upper most squamocolumnar junction coincided with or formed a mucosal ring as seen at endoscopy. This ring, which was first seen on barium swallow, has the radiographic appearance of that associated with the Paterson-Kelly syndrome. Read More
