Esophageal Atresia To View the Full Program, Please Visit On Thursday March 11, at 5:00 PM EST, Brenner Children's Hospital of Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center will broadcast a live presentation of a life-saving procedure, Esophageal Atresia. Esophageal atresia is a rare congenital disorder in which the esophagus does not develop properly. This disorder is often detected before birth through ultrasound examinations. If not, the disorder is diagnosed at birth. In 85 percent of cases, the esophagus does not connect with the lower esophagus and stomach. Sometimes the top of the esophagus connects with the windpipe and can cause food to be whisked into the windpipe and can cause choking and gagging.

Esophageal Dilation due to a narrowing of the esophagus What is Esophageal Dilation? Esophageal dilation is a procedure that allows your doctor to dilate, or stretch, a narrowed area of your esophagus [swallowing tube]. Doctors can use various techniques for this procedure. Your doctor might perform the procedure as part of a sedated endoscopy. Alternatively, your doctor might apply a local anesthetic spray to the back of your throat and then pass a weighted dilator through your mouth and into your esophagus. Why is it Done? The most common cause of narrowing of the esophagus, or stricture, is scarring of the esophagus from reflux of acid occurring in patients with heartburn. Patients with a narrowed portion of the esophagus often have trouble swallowing; food feels like it is "stuck" in the chest region, causing discomfort or pain. Less common causes of esophageal narrowing are webs or rings (which are thin layers of excess tissue), cancer of the esophagus, scarring after radiation treatment or a disorder of the way the esophagus moves [motility disorder]. How Should I Prepare for the Procedure? An empty stomach allows for the best and safest examination, so you should have nothing to drink, including water, for at least six hours before the examination. Your doctor will tell you when to start fasting. Tell your doctor in advance about any medications you take, particularly aspirin products or anticoagulants (blood thinners). Most medications can be continued as usual, but you might need to adjust your usual dose before the ...

Owner of dog with esophageal strictures discusses diagnosis, treatment, and recovery "Dixie" is a 4 ½ year-old spayed female Rottweiler who was originally presented to the emergency service of the Faculté de médecine vétérinaire, University of Montreal, for signs of retching, regurgitation, weight loss, and bloating of the stomach. She was ultimately diagnosed with two esophageal strictures, as well as gastric dilation and volvulus. The esophageal strictures developed secondary to an esophagitis which occurred following an episode of regurgitation during general anesthesia while undergoing a surgical procedure a few weeks previously. "Dixie" underwent a surgery called gastropexy where a gastric (stomach) tube was placed in order to feed "Dixie". Balloon dilation of the esophagus was attempted on six occasions, however, the affected areas would restricture within a week of each procedure despite feeding her a liquid diet and administering numerous medications. Two biodegradable esophageal stents (prosthetic device) were placed in an attempt to keep the esophagus open and prevent it from retricturing, however, these failed as well. A permanent esophageal stent was placed in the Fall 2008 and "Dixie" has been doing well since. She is now able to eat kibble and she is bright and alert and extremely active. Although she will likely require certain medications for the remainder of her life, "Dixie" and Mrs. Desjardins have regained an excellent quality of life. For more information, please visit
