Resumo

BRAGHETTO M, Italo et al. Current management of achalasia of the esophagus. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2002, vol.130, n.9, pp.1055-1066. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872002000900015.

The therapeutic options for treatment of Achalasia of the esophagus include medical treatment, endoscopic and surgical procedures. The latter can be either conservative, such as cardiomyotomy or more aggressive, such as cardioplasty or esophageal resection. In this article, we discuss the early and long term results after the different therapeutic options. We also present the results of our recent surgical experience. The definitive results seem to be better after surgical treatment compared to medical management or endoscopic procedures (Rev Méd Chile 2002; 130. 1055-66).

Palavras-chave : Esophageal Achalasia; Esophageal diseases; Esophageal motility disorders.
