  • Tics and Other Unusual Anomalies of the Esophagus - 46th Annual Course Session Recording

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 04/14/2019

    Nikolai A. Bildzukewicz, MD FACS presents on Tics and Other Unusual Anomalies of the Esophagus.

    Overview: Nikolai A. Bildzukewicz, MD FACS presents on Tics and Other Unusual Anomalies of the Esophagus.

    The esophagus acts as a conduit for the transport of food from the oral cavity to the stomach.  To carry out this task safely and effectively, the esophagus is constructed as an 18- to- 26 cm long hollow muscular tube with inner  "skin-like" lining of stratified squamous epithelium. Between swallows, the esophagus is collapsed, but the lumen distends up to 2 cm anteroposteriorly and 3 cm laterally to accommodate a swallowed bolus.  Structurally, the esophagus wall is composed of 4 layers and unlike the remainder of the GI tract, the esophagus has no serosa. Because this conduit is so special and performs such a vital function, it is subject to disease, injury and various anomalies. This lecture will cover in depth and with case studies the unusual and rare disorders specific to the esophagus. You will come away with a new understanding of diverticulum's, fistulas, atresia, rings, webs and inlet patches. You will also come away with a new understanding of why protecting this vital hollow tube from injury and disease is so important.
