    Achalasia is a motor disorder of the esophagus characterized by complete loss of peristalsis. The exact cause of achalasia is unknown; several theories exist regarding loss of nerve endings or loss or hormones. Approximately 2 people per , per year will be diagnosed with this illness. The esophagus, (American English) or oesophagus (British English; see spelling differences) (/ ɪ ˈ s ɒ f ə ɡ ə s /), informally known as the food pipe or gullet, is an organ in vertebrates through which food passes, aided by peristaltic contractions, from the pharynx to the esophagus is a fibromuscular tube, about 25 cm (10 in) long in adults, which travels behind the trachea.

      After a barium swallow and esophageal manometry suggest achalasia, one must perform endoscopy prior to beginning medical or surgical management. Recall that achalasia is a motor disorder of the distal esophagus resulting from degeneration of Aurbach's plexus. It is the most common motility disorder and is often found in patients under MOTOR DISORDER OSF THE ESOPHAGUS. B ROBERy DT. HENDERSON.

OESOPHAGEAL MOTOR DISORDERS: CLASSIFICATION. Oesophageal motor disorders are classified as primary and secondary. The latter are due to systemic diseases such as diabetes, connective tissue disorders, dermatomyositis, scleroderma, amyloidosis, alcoholism, Chagas disease, and neoplasms of various sorts (most commonly adenocarcinoma of the stomach).Cited by: ESOPHAGEAL motor disorders are clinical abnormalities in esophageal motility that are caused by a disruption in the neurohumoral or muscular control of peristalsis or lower-esophagealsphincter (LES Cited by: Motor disorders of the esophagus.

The esophagus is the Motor disorders of the esophagus book tube that extends from the neck to the abdomen and connects the throat to the stomach.

The Cleveland Clinic Thoracic surgery department works very closely with the Digestive Disease Institute to diagnosis and treat patients with disorders of the esophagus.

The most common disorders treated by thoracic surgeons include. Many diseases that affect the esophagus can give rise to the various primary and secondary motor disorders. The primary disorders are due to neurogenic, myogenic, and myoneurogenic disease and respond well to surgery if they are diagnosed accurately and if treatment follows carefully the fundamental principles of management.

This is easily the most focused and comprehensive book available dedicated to the esophagus and its conditions, fully exploring anatomy, physiology, pathology, diagnosis, and treatment. Edited by two former presidents of the ACG and ASG, the world's two largest gastroenterology societies, the text offers approved treatment guidelines from these.

Surgical treatment for esophageal motor disorders is often indicated when the muscular activity of the esophagus is either too great or is poorly coordinated. Treatment is therefore based on transecting the appropriate muscle. In extreme cases an esophageal resection and.

The esophagus travels down the chest and reaches the gastroesophageal junction. This is the point where the stomach meets the esophagus. There are sphincter muscles present at the lower esophagus that help prevent the back flow of stomach acid into the esophagus.

Disorders that affect the esophagus tend to occur in any part of the long tube. As a student of esophagology for the past 20 years, I sat down to peruse this book with a good deal of anticipation and I was not disappointed when I completed my reading.

The author has done an admirable job in compiling a comprehensive approach to the physiology, pathophysiology, and therapy of motor disorders of the esophagus, from anatomy. The classic presentation is achalasia, a disorder characterized by failure of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) to relax.

There are several nonspecific esophageal motility disorders, including diffuse esophageal spasm (DES), nutcracker esophagus, ineffective esophageal motility (IEM), and other abnormalities of the LES. Difficulty swallowing liquids or solids, heartburn, regurgitation, and atypical (or non-cardiac) chest pain may be symptoms of an esophageal motility disorder.

Examples of motility disorders of the esophagus that are described below include gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), dysphagia, achalasia, and functional chest pain. DIFFUSE ESOPHAGEAL SPASM AND OTHER PUTATIVE DISORDERS OF ESOPHAGEAL MOTILITY.

Diffuse esophageal spasm is a motor disorder of the esophagus that is considered by some to be part of the same spectrum as achalasia. In many cases, LES dysfunction is a notable feature and can be treated by the same approaches used for achalasia including BoNT/A.

There are primary idiopathic motor disorders that include achalasia, diffuse esophageal spasm, nutcracker esophagus, hypertensive LES and nonspecific esophageal motility disorders.

Reflux disease is associated with an LES that is not sufficiently tight allowing gastric acid to wash back into the esophagus. Achalasia, the most significant of the distal motor disorders, is of investigative interest because of the expanded armamentarium of treatment options.

Minimally invasive surgical methods have taken an important foothold as a primary treatment of this disorder. Appreciation is growing for sensory dysfunction that accompanies distal motor disorders.

Esophageal motor disorders may be clearly primary, as in achalasia or diffuse esophageal spasm (DES), or clearly secondary, as in scleroderma or intrathoracic malignancy. In patients with gastroesophageal reflux, abnormal motility of the esophageal body and stomach, and lower esophageal spasm (LES) appear to predispose patients to : T W Burns.

Achalasia is a primary motor disorder of the esophagus described by inadequate lower esophageal sphincter relaxation and loss of esophageal peristalsis. These effects in patients’ complaints of dysphagia to solids and liquids, regurgitation, and occasional chest pain with or without weight loss.
