[Microsurgical laser treatment of Zenker's diverticulum. Economic aspects].

Abstract

Zenker's diverticulum (hypopharyngeal/proximal oesophageal diverticulum/pouch) is a relatively uncommon cause of dysphagia usually in elderly patients. We describe the results of the first 10 patients operated for ZD with micro-endoscopic laserdiverticulotomy (LD), where the "spur" between the diverticulum and oesophagus is coagulated by means of a CO2… (More)
