A double-contrast esophagogram
in PMME usually reveals a smooth-surface tumor that is lobulated, polyploid, protruding, or sectionalized and has a tendency of growing in the radial or horizontal directions.
were performed routinely at postoperative months 1-3, 6-8, and 12 or upon clinical suspicion of stricture, that is, dysphagia, difficulty when swallowing, and/or repeated vomiting.

To confirm the diagnosis, CT ionic oral contrast esophagogram
was done which clearly depicting a large diverticulum in upper prevertebral space through the posterior pharyngooesophageal wall and also the same in barium swallow (Fig.
A barium swallow esophagogram
revealed a fistulous tract from the piriform sinus to a right fourth branchial cleft cyst (figure 1, B).
On hospital Day 5, barium esophagogram
reveals extrinsic compression of the esophagus.
Cases were evaluated by echocardiography, CT angiography, barium esophagogram
and fiberoptic bronchoscopy as appropriate.
The onset of progressive dysphagia in this patient prompted an esophagogram
, which revealed a left tracheosophageal fishula that was repaired endoscopically (Figure 5).
An AS with recanalization of the TEF was diagnosed at esophagogram
(Figure 1(a)) and confirmed by bronchoscopy with blue methylene test.
While there are diagnostic tests for GERD, including a pH probe of the esophagus, a barium esophagogram
, and manometry testing, empiric therapy with a PPI--starting with a trial of at least 2 weeks--often eliminates the troublesome cough.
was performed, revealing a major polypoid lesion in the cervical and thoracic esophagus extending from C7 level to the carina, which was in endoluminal position (Figure 1).
showed patency without leak, five days after the procedure (Figure 1).
