Saliva production helps to keep the esophagus
The radiological assessment of colonic replacement of the esophagus
in children: A review of 43 cases.
"The fishbone was stuck at the upper part of her esophagus
-15cm from the opening of the mouth of the Syrian woman."
The study showed the feasible and reproducible use of the company's Cellframe technology to regenerate a functioning esophagus
using a proprietary removable synthetic scaffold carrying autologous stem cells.
After examining the child and seeing the barium swallow X-ray, the doctors found that the X-ray showed a severely narrowed lower end of esophagus
with the contrast barely entering the stomach.
CSA Medical reported on Thursday the inclusion of Barrett's Esophagus

Raises Risk About 15 percent of people with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD--for more on this condition, see our April issue) develop Barrett's esophagus
, particularly if they have been suffering from GERD for a decade or longer.
An upper endoscopy (EGD) was performed showing severe mucosal changes characterized by necrosis at the middle and lower thirds of the esophagus
Patients with EA are at an increased risk for developing squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the esophagus
, which is thought to be caused by continuous exposure to stagnant ingested food .
has traditionally been examined in great detail by contrast fluoroscopy or endoscopy, and subtle pathology may potentially be missed when depending on CT for screening evaluation without the mucosal detail provided by contrast esophagography.
(BE), which is a precursor to esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC), is an increasing healthcare challenge in the United States, but new tools are quickly emerging to combat the uncertainty associated with the disease.
"Over time, weaker contractions in the esophagus
can lead to acid reflux and the sensation of heartburn," says Kevin Ghassemi, MD, UCLA Center for Esophageal Disorders.

TEHRAN (FNA)- Writing in The Lancet, US doctors report the first case of a human patient whose severely damaged esophagus
was reconstructed using commercially available FDA approved stents and skin tissue.
The radiologist who examined the x-ray noted a dilated esophagus
(figure 1, red arrows) with debris behind the heart shadow, which suggested achalasia.
