Hypertensive panesophageal pressurization in type II achalasia

76

Luigi Melcarne, Anna Sánchez Vilanova, Carlos Guarner-Argente,

We present a case-report about a patient with type II achalasia. In the high-resolution esophageal manometry (HRM), an atypical hypertensive panesophageal pressurizations were observed. Until now, the presence of hypertensive panesophageal pressurizations in type II achalasia was described in only one case-report. A POEM was performed. After the treatment, the patient presents a complete resolution of the symptoms. Control HRM showed a partial recovery of esophageal motility and the hypotonia of the gastro-esophageal junction.
