Gene context of Esophageal Spasm, Diffuse

  • Possible mechanisms of esophageal spasm and its relief with glucagon are discussed [16].
  • The most common esophageal motor abnormalities detected in patients with and without MVP were diffuse esophageal spasm (prevalence, 57%) and non-specific motor disorder (prevalence, 9%), respectively [17].
  • A 41-year-old female patient underwent thoracoscopic esophagomyotomy for diffuse esophageal spasm (DOS) with normal resting pressure and complete relaxation of the LOS; findings were confirmed in two preoperative esophageal manometries [18].
