Abstract in German

Die Röntgenuntersuchung des pharyngo-oesophagealen Segments bei Patienten mit Dysphagie beruht auf der Auswertung von Morphologie und Funktion. Dazu sind video- oder kinematographische Techniken notwendig. Das Zurückhalten von Kontrastmittel oberhalb des cricopharyngealen Muskels kann durch ein kleines Pseudo- oder ein echtes Divertikel verursacht werden. Beide Phänomene werden durch Dysfunktion im pharyngo-oesophagealen Segment hervorgerufen. Damit sich das Pseudodivertikel zu einem echten Divertikel entwickelt, bedarf es wahrscheinlich eines angeborenen Defektes zwischen den Muskelschichten im pharyngo-oesophagealen Segment.
Abstract
Radiology of the pharyngoesophageal segment in patients with dysphagia relies on evaluation of both morphology and function. Video- or cineradiographic techniques are necessary. Retention of contrast material above the cricopharyngeal muscle can be due to small pseudodiverticula or true diverticula. Both phenomena are due to dysfunction in the pharyngoesophageal segment. To develop into a true diverticulum it is probably necessary to have a congenital defect between the muscle layers in the pharyngoesophageal segment.
