Zenker's diverticulum (zd)

    Lesion: Sac-like outpouching of the mucosa and submucosa layers located dorsally at the pharyngoesophageal


    X-ray: Esophagogram showed a diverticulum through the posterior pharyngeal wall suggestive of ZD

    • TTT: if dysphagia, regurgitation

    • Objectives: Create a communicating door between the diverticulum and the oesophageal lumen by transecting the septum on endoscopy or surgery
