Zenker's diverticulum treated with submucosal tunneling endoscopic septum division surgery: Two case reports.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2020 Jan;99(5):e18659

Department of Gastroenterology, Ningbo First Hospital, Ningbo.

Introduction: Zenker's diverticulum (ZD) refers to a pouch-like structure similar to the esophageal lumen formed from the herniation of the esophageal mucosa; this structure makes it difficult for food to pass through the esophagus to the stomach. The development of endoscopic technology has made minimally invasive surgical treatments for ZD possible.

Patient Concerns: A female 72-year-old patient was admitted to our hospital due to recurrent dysphagia for more than 5 years. Read More

Third Space Endoscopy: Lessons Learnt From a Decade of Submucosal Endoscopy.

J Clin Gastroenterol 2020 Feb;54(2):114-129

Shivanand Desai Center for Digestive Disorders, Deenanath Mangeshkar Hospital and Research Center, Pune, Maharashtra, India.

The field of third space endoscopy (TSE), also called submucosal endoscopy using a mucosal flap valve, allows secure access to the submucosal and deeper layers of the gastrointestinal tract without the risk of a full-thickness perforation. Since the first description of per-oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) for the treatment of achalasia cardia 10 years ago, this field has expanded rapidly. Several new procedures, submucosal tunneling endoscopic resection, gastric-POEM, Zenker POEM, per-rectal endoscopic myotomy, diverticular POEM, and recanalization for complete esophageal obstruction (per-oral endoscopic tunneling for restoration of the esophagus), have been performed.

Hypopharyngeal Diverticulum: Toward a Unified Understanding of Its Etiopathogenesis.

Dysphagia 2019 10 22;34(5):713-715. Epub 2019 Jun 22.

Department of Surgery (Section of Otolaryngology), Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT, USA.

The etiopathogenesis of Zenker's diverticulum (ZD) remains uncertain. Increased hypopharyngeal pressure due to a hypertonic upper esophageal sphincter results in herniation proximal to the sphincter producing a pulsion diverticulum. Gastroesophageal reflux, which is known to induce shortening of the injured esophagus, likely plays a prominent role in ZD formation by pulling the cricopharyngeus muscle (CPM) away from the anchored inferior constrictor muscle.

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

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
