  7. 7. Nutcracker esophagus Barium swallow Videofluoroscopy Esophageal manometery • Normal. • Peristalsis: • Hyper-peristalsis of distal esophagus. • LES: • Usually normal but occasionally hypertensive.
  8. 8. Hypertensive LES Barium swallow Videofluoroscopy Esophageal manometery • Normal. • Peristalsis: • Normal. • LES: • Resting pressure > 45 mm Hg
  9. 9. Presby esophagus • • • • • Abnormal esophageal motility in the elderly. irrespective of the kind of motility disorder. This includes: Diffuse esophageal spasm. Dilated esophagus with poor peristalsis.
  10. 10. Esophageal motility disorders: Achalasia of the cardia: Diffuse esophageal spasm: Presby esophagus: Scleroderma: Atrophy of the smooth muscles with replacement by fibrous tissue. Reflux esophagitis: C.P: Barium swallow / vidofluroscopy: Dysphagia. Regurgitation. Dysphagia. Odenophagia. Dilated esophagus with smooth tapering of its lower end giving bird beaks appearance. Absent primary peristalsis. Repitive (>30%) tertiary non propulsive contractions giving cork screw appearance. Asymptomatic esophageal Weak primary peristalsis. motility disorder in elderly. Tertiary contractions with cork screw esophagus. Dysphagia. Dilated atonic lower 2/3 of the esophagus (smooth Reflux. muscles). Normal motility of the upper 1/3 (striated muscles). Patulous lower esophageal sphincter with GERD. Dysphagia, Regurgitation, Heart burn. Granular mucosal pattern. Shallow ulcers in the distal esophagus. Esophagogastric pseudopolyp. Transverse fixed mucosal folds (step ladder pattern). Buckering & sacculations. Feline esophagus. Peptic stricture. Barret esophagus.

Chest PA • Mediastinal widening, with double contour of mediastinal borders (outer border represent dilated esophagus). • Mediastinal air fluid level. • Displacement of the azygo-esophageal recess. • Anterior bowing of the trachea. • Absent gastric air bubbles. Barium swallow • Dilated esophagus • Early  mild. • Later  marked (sigmoid shaped). • Bird beak deformity (smooth tapering of the distal end of the esophagus). Videofluoroscopy Esophageal manometery • Peristalsis: • Absent primary peristalsis. • LES: • incomplete relaxation.
