Effect of level of circular myotomy on oesophageal function in a piglet model


Oesophageal continuity is often difficult to obtain in “long-gap” oesophageal atresia, and a circular myotomy may be required to achieve oesophageal anastomosis. This study compared the effects of upper and lower segmental circular myotomy on oesophageal stricture formation, oesophageal motility, and the development of gastro-oesophageal reflux (GOR) in a… (More)
