In this lecture, Professor Zach Murphy will present on Esophageal Motility Disorders. We will discuss the pathophysiology, highlighting disorders such as achalasia, esophageal spasm, and scleroderma-related esophageal dysfunction, and their impact on esophageal motility. The session will transition to a digital presentation focused on the diagnostic approach, including manometry, barium esophagram, and endoscopy. Finally, we will review the management strategies for Esophageal Motility Disorders, emphasizing pharmacological treatments, endoscopic procedures like pneumatic dilation or botulinum toxin injection, and surgical options such as myotomy. Enjoy the lecture and support us below!
