Can patients determine the level of their dysphagia?

World J Gastroenterol 2017 Feb;23(6):1038-1043

Hafiz Hamad Ashraf, Harry Richard Dalton, Carolyn Waters, Iain Alexander Murray, Departments of Gastroenterology, Royal Cornwall Hospital NHS Trust, Truro TR1 3LJ, United Kingdom.

Aim: To determine if patients can localise dysphagia level determined endoscopically or radiologically and association of gender, age, level and pathology.

Methods: Retrospective review of consecutive patients presenting to dysphagia hotline between March 2004 and March 2015 was carried out. Demographics, clinical history and investigation findings were recorded including patient perception of obstruction level (pharyngeal, mid sternal or low sternal) was documented and the actual level of obstruction found on endoscopic or radiological examination (if any) was noted.

Effective Treatment of Symptomatic Lower Esophageal (Schatzki) Rings With Acid Suppression Therapy: Confirmed on Barium Esophagography.

AJR Am J Roentgenol 2015 Dec;205(6):1182-7

2 Department of Gastroenterology, Mount Auburn Hospital, Cambridge, MA.

Objective: Symptomatic lower esophageal (Schatzki) rings are one of the most common causes of dysphagia and esophageal food impaction. Although these rings are often diagnosed fluoroscopically, patients are typically referred for dilation procedures performed by a gastroenterologist. Because these procedures are invasive and carry risks, including esophageal perforation, an alternative treatment option is needed. Read More

Abdominal compression during endoscopy (the Bolster technique) demonstrates hidden Schatzki rings (with videos).

Gastrointest Endosc 2016 May 10;83(5):1024-6. Epub 2015 Nov 10.

Tufts Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

Background And Aims: Schatzki rings are found in the distal esophagus, are associated with hiatal hernias, and present with intermittent dysphagia to solid foods. They can be identified by radiology (GI series or barium swallow studies) or endoscopy. Rings are not always visualized during endoscopy in patients in whom they are suspected clinically. Read More

Acute oesophageal symptoms.

Clin Med (Lond) 2015 Oct;15(5):477-81

University Hospitals of Leicester, Leicester, UK

Acute oesophageal symptoms include acute dysphagia or food bolus impaction (most commonly due to strictures, Schatzki ring and eosinophilic oesophagitis), acute chest pain with odynophagia due to oesophageal infections, motility disorders and acute oesophageal rupture (of which oesophageal intramural haematoma is a subtype). Acute full thickness oesophageal rupture carries a high mortality if not recognised early; the clinical features and conditions with which this may be confused are presented and discussed. Read More

Ashish Shah, Erica Boettcher, Marianne Fahmy, Thomas Savides, Denise Kalmaz, Department of Gastroenterology, University of California San Diego, La Jolla, CA 92093, United States.

Aim: To determine if esophageal capsule endoscopy (ECE) is an adequate diagnostic alternative to esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) in pre-bariatric surgery patients.

Methods: We conducted a prospective pilot study to assess the diagnostic accuracy of ECE (PillCam ESO2, Given Imaging) vs conventional EGD in pre-bariatric surgery patients. Patients who were scheduled for bariatric surgery and referred for pre-operative EGD were prospectively enrolled. Read More

Endoscopic findings in patients with Schatzki rings: evidence for an association with eosinophilic esophagitis.

World J Gastroenterol 2012 Dec;18(47):6960-6

Department of Gastroenterology, German Diagnostic Clinic, D-65191 Wiesbaden, Germany.

Aim: To investigate endoscopic findings in patients with Schatzki rings (SRs) with a focus on evidence for eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE).

Department of Surgery, Esophagus Division, Escola Paulista de Medicina, Unifesp, Rua Napoleão de Barros, 715 2 andar, São Paulo, SP, Brazil.

Eponyms in medicine are frequently criticized because they may not represent the person who first described a syndrome or disease. Although eponyms are very commonly used, most readers are probably unaware of who it was that named the diseases and whether the original description of the disease still corresponds to the modern definition. The 10 most common eponyms in esophageal diseases were revisited. Read More

Department of Clinical Pharmacology and Biostatistics, Georgetown University, Washington, DC, USA.

In the article by Schatzki published in 1963, data about the lower esophageal ring relate ring diameter to presence of dysphagia. Statistical analysis of these measurements was performed to quantify conclusions of Schatzki and to extract additional information from the data. Ring diameters in 332 patients with and without dysphagia are described in a histogram in the original article of Schatzki. Read More

Acute food bolus impaction without stricture in children with gastroesophageal reflux.

J Pediatr Surg 2001 Sep;36(9):1397-400

Department of Surgery, Hospital Infantil Universitario "La Paz," Madrid, Spain.

Background/purpose: This report identifies a group of children in whom severe acute food bolus impaction (AFBI) was the leading symptom of gastroesophageal reflux (GER) in the absence of stricture.

Methods: The esophageal structure and function of 8 patients treated for AFBI requiring endoscopic removal of alimentary foreign bodies in 6 of them (up to 4 times in 1 case) were investigated by barium meal, esophagoscopy-biopsy, pH-metering, pull-through stationary manometry, and 24-hour ambulatory manometry. The results were compared with those in a group of age-matched regular refluxers (n = 14) without AFBI. Read More

Röntgenabteilung, I. Chirurgische Universitätsklinik Wien.

Benign stenoses of the oesophagus have been conventionally treated by endoscopic bougienage and were operated on in case of failure. Now that balloon catheters with large balloon diameters are available, interventional radiological dilatation of enteric strictures can be easily performed. In case of eccentric high-grade stenosis with or without blind loop, stenosis is often easier to manage and associated with less risk with an angiographic guide wire and catheter than by endoscopy.

Gastroesophageal reflux (GER) has been suggested as a cause of the lower esophageal (Schatzki) ring.
