ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Hiatal Hernia w/ Schatzki ring

History: 51yo Caucasian obese man presents with a three year history of intermittant epigastric tightness, usually occurring during meals or immediately postprandial.

Findings: Film represents the esophagogram, performed with barium contrast as part of this patient's upper G.I. series. The film is remarkable for the abrupt narrowing in the distal third of the esophagus, consistant with a ring. This study demonstrates adequate distention of the distal esophagus which may be required to notice the finding in some individuals. Look at the film, and measure the width of the narrowed portion, and read on about the clinical significance of the measurement.
