Transnasal Esophagoscopy-Our Experience.

Int Arch Otorhinolaryngol 2019 Jan 11;23(1):7-11. Epub 2018 Oct 11.

Department of ENT, Lancaster Royal Infirmary, Lancaster, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

 Transnasal esophagoscopy (TNE) is a widely used tool both in the diagnosis and treatment of patients presenting complaints within the head and the neck. This is because this investigative adjunct examination provides the advantage of visualizing above the level of the cricopharyngeus muscle when compared to the more widely used esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD).  We have assessed if the implementation of TNE within a district general hospital (DGH) was feasible, and investigated if the resources of our patients could be better directed away from other investigations such as barium swallow and EGD in favor of this novel technique.

Enhancing the Detection of Barrett Esophagus.

Thorac Surg Clin 2018 Nov;28(4):453-464

Esophageal and Lung Institute, Allegheny Health Network, Western Pennsylvania Hospital, Suite 158, Mellon Pavilion, 4815 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15224, USA. Electronic address:

In Western countries, the incidence of esophageal adenocarcinoma has increased rapidly in parallel with its premalignant condition, Barrett esophagus (BE). Unlike colonoscopy, endoscopic screening for BE is not currently recommended for all patients; however, surveillance endoscopy is advocated for patients with established BE. Novel imaging and sampling techniques have been developed and investigated for the purpose of improving the detection of Barrett esophagus, dysplasia, and neoplasia. Read More

Eosinophilic esophagitis: an underdiagnosed cause of dysphagia and food impaction to be recognized by otolaryngologists.

HNO 2018 Jun 6. Epub 2018 Jun 6.

Department of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, Hospital Universitario Puerta de Hierro Majadahonda, 1 Manuel de Falla Street, Majadahonda, 28222, Madrid, Spain.

Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a recently recognised pathologic entity whose prevalence has risen significantly since first being described in 1993. Defined as a chronic, local immune-mediated disease with predominant eosinophil infiltration, it is nowadays the leading cause of dysphagia and food bolus impaction in children and young adults. Genetic and environmental risk factors, and especially food antigens, trigger the disease and are in the focus of investigation as avoidance can cure three quarters of patients. Read More

Oesophageal causes of dysphagia localised only to the pharynx: Implications for the suspected head and neck cancer pathway.

Clin Otolaryngol 2018 Apr 10. Epub 2018 Apr 10.

Department of Gastroenterology, Royal Cornwall Hospital, Truro, UK.

Objectives: Dysphagia is a presenting symptom of both pharyngeal and oesophageal cancers. The referral pathway choice is determined by whether it is thought to be oropharyngeal or oesophageal, and this is in turn influenced by whether dysphagia is perceived to be above or below the suprasternal notch. We studied the concordance between the presence of pharynx-localised dysphagia (PLD) and the location of the underlying disease processes. Read More
