Case description

Achalasia is a primary esophageal motility disorder characterized by lack of esophageal peristalsis and partial or absent relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter in response to swallowing. Available treatment modalities are not curative but rather intend to relieve patient' symptoms. A laparoscopic Heller myotomy with Dor fundoplication is associated with high clinical success rates and low incidence of postoperative reflux.
