Case description

The treatment options for hypercontractile esophageal disorders are disappointing so far. POEM could be the adequate procedure for spastic motor disorders, because it allows myotomy not only of the lower esophageal sphincter but also of hypertensive esophageal segments in the esophageal body, where the spasm occurs.
