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.

Open Versus Endoscopic Surgery of Zenker's Diverticula: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.

Dysphagia 2019 Mar 12. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

Department of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH, USA.

Most Zenker's diverticula (ZD) cohort studies are single-institution retrospective observational studies of recurrence rates. There is a gap in the literature regarding patient-reported outcomes after ZD surgery. This study was conducted to compare if open transcervical diverticulectomy (OD) is better than endoscopic laser diverticulectomy (ELD) or endoscopic stapler-assisted diverticulectomy (ESD).

Sebészeti Klinika, Szegedi Tudományegyetem, Általános Orvostudományi Kar Szeged.

Microscope-assisted direct endoscopy of the airways and the upper gastrointestinal tract in general anesthesia is an essential diagnostic and therapeutic method of otorhinolaryngology. The quality of surgical exploration is a key for the good visibility and maneuverability of microsurgical tools. Beside the most commonly used Kleinsasser laryngoscope, the distending Weerda laryngoscope is a more favorable option for the exploration of the retrocricoid region. Read More

Incidental pharyngoesophageal diverticulum mistaken for a thyroid nodule: Report of two cases.

Diagn Cytopathol 2019 May 10;47(5):503-506. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

Department of Radiology, Hsinchu MacKay Memorial Hospital, Hsinchu, Taiwan.

Pharyngeal or Zenker's diverticulum is an infrequent disorder that results from an outpouching of pharyngeal mucosa through a weakened area in the posterior pharyngeal wall. As it may mimic a thyroid nodule on ultrasonography (US), accurate diagnosis is important to ensure appropriate treatment. Fine-needle aspiration (FNA) is recommended for the initial evaluation of thyroid nodules. Read More

Department of Interdisciplinary Endoscopy, University Hospital Mainz, Mainz, Germany.

Zenker's diverticulum (ZD), or pharyngeal pouch, is an anatomical defect characterized by herniation of the posterior pharyngeal wall through Killian's dehiscence, and may result in dysphagia and regurgitation. Multiple therapeutic modalities including surgery, rigid and flexible endoscopy have been developed to manage ZD. Although surgical management with open and endoscopically assisted techniques have historically been the mainstay of ZD treatment, minimally invasive flexible endoscopic techniques, carried out under conscious sedation, are increasingly favored.

Dis Esophagus 2017 Nov;11(1):55-57

Department of General Surgery & Liver Diseases Warsaw Medical University School of Medicine, Warsaw, Poland.

On the basis of 20 years' experience, the authors present the immediate and long-term results of operative treatment of Zenker's diverticulum. Comparison of two methods of surgery - diverticulopexia (in 21 patients) and excision (in 16), both associated with upper esophageal sphincter myotomy - shows good immediate and longterm results (from 1 to 19 years), with disappearance of symptoms (dysphagia) in all patients. There was no perioperative mortality. Read More

Pharyngoesophageal diverticula simulating thyroid nodules: An unusual occurrence with unique features.

Diagn Cytopathol 2018 Feb 19;46(2):193-197. Epub 2017 Sep 19.

Thyroid Cytopathology Partners, Austin, Texas.

Pharyngoesophageal diverticula (PED) of the Zenker's and Killian-Jamieson types arise in close proximity to the thyroid gland, and may rarely be confused with a thyroid nodule on ultrasonography. In this brief report, we detail the cytologic, clinical, and radiologic findings of three PED that were thought to be thyroid nodules, and were subjected to fine-needle aspiration (FNA). The patients were females with an age range of 51-64 years. Read More
