Esophageal diverticula are rare conditions that cause esophageal symptoms, such as dysphagia, regurgitation, and chest pain. They are classified according to their location and characteristic pathophysiology into three types: epiphrenic diverticulum, Zenker’s diverticulum, and Rokitansky diverticulum. The former two disorders take the form of protrusions, and symptomatic cases require interventional treatment. However, the esophageal anatomy presents distinct challenges to surgical resection of… Expand
Role of Peroral Endoscopic Myotomy (POEM) in the Management of Esophageal Diverticula
TLDR
Although a safe and effective procedure, this novel submucosal tunneling technique for the treatment of esophageal diverticula requires further validation, and head-to-head comparisons between the different approaches for the Treatment of esphageal Diverticula are warranted. Expand
Peroral endoscopic myotomy for the treatment of esophageal diverticulum: an experience in China
TLDR
The preliminary data and experience put forwarded D-POEM as a safe and effective technique for esophageal diverticulum as well as complete septotomy by D- POEM. Expand
“Functional approach” to esophageal body diverticula
TLDR
Literature data is reviewed about the treatment modalities of diverticula of the esophageal body (mid-esophages and epiphrenic) and the POEM technique has been applied for the performance of an endoscopic diverticulectomy by mean the submucosal myotomy of the diverticular septum. Expand
Epiphrenic diverticula: An added source of complexity in achalasia management
TLDR
The presentation, pathophysiology, and management of epiphrenic diverticula are discussed as well as the expanding role for POEM in diverticulas are discussed. Expand
Per Oral Endoscopic Myotomy for the Management of Large Esophageal Diverticula (D-POEM): Safe and Effective Modality for Complete Septotomy
TLDR
It is highlighted that complete septotomy by D-POEM technique can be achieved for the management of large esophageal diverticulum and is safe and effective. Expand
Peroral endoscopic myotomy and simultaneous endoscopic diverticuloseptotomy in a case of achalasia with diverticula.
TLDR
A 58-year-old man with symptoms of dysphagia and regurgitation was diagnosed with achalasia cardia with a small mid-esophageal diverticulum and a large epiphrenic Diverticulum, which may cause technical difficulties and increase the rates of procedure-related adverse events. Expand
Greater-curvature peroral endoscopic myotomy with diverticuloseptotomy for the treatment of achalasia in a patient with a large epiphrenic diverticulum
TLDR
A 93-year-old man presented to his institution 2 years after his initial presentation for ongoing intermittent dysphagia and food regurgitation, with newer reports suggesting that a similar approach can be considered in patients with a concomitant epiphrenic diverticulum. Expand
Peroral Endoscopic Myotomy Is a Safe and Feasible Option in Management of Esophageal Diverticula: Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
It is demonstrated that D-POEM is a safe and feasible option for patients with symptomatic esophageal diverticula and subgroup analysis including patients with Zenker’s diverticulum who underwent POEM confirmed this. Expand
Peroral ceroral endoscopic myotomy treatment for symptomatic esophageal diverticulum: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Meta-regression analysis indicated that esophageal diverticula types and motility disorders were not associated with the clinical success rate (P > 0.05), indicating that POEM is a feasible, safe, and effective treatment for symptomatic esophagal Diverticula, with low adverse events and recurrence rates.

TLDR
The case of a 59-year-old woman with symptoms of dysphagia who was significantly underweight, which was conducive to the diagnosis of symptomatic ED, who received a diverticular peroral endoscopic myotomy and developed parapneumonic effusion and tension pneumothorax after the procedure. Expand

Salvage peroral endoscopic myotomy for esophageal diverticulum.
TLDR
An 84-year-old woman with a 30-year history of dysphagia was referred to the authors' hospital with a giant diverticulum in the mid esophagus, and salvage POEM was undertaken as a less invasive treatment. Expand

TLDR
Although the custom-designed technique for ZD was successful, there is a need for approval of necessary endoscopic devices and support by the Japanese public health insurance system for the new treatment approach. Expand
Cause and treatment of epiphrenic diverticula.
TLDR
Data support the conclusions that: (1) a primary esophageal motility disorder is the underlying cause of most epiphrenic diverticula; and (2) laparoscopic treatment is successful and should be the method of choice. Expand

TLDR
Flexible endoscopic therapy has experienced a recent resurgence paralleling the advancements of therapeutic endoscopy in other areas, such as endoscopic submucosal dissection. Expand
Zenker's diverticulum: exploring treatment options
TLDR
Endoscopic stapled diverticulotomy is generally the preferred approach, but flexible endoscopy is a valuable option, particularly for high-risk patients. Expand
Minimally invasive operation for esophageal diverticula.
TLDR
Minimally invasive operations for esophageal diverticula are feasible but also challenging; the potential for morbidity is significant and patients should be selected and evaluated carefully before undertaking repair. Expand
Surgical Treatment of Zenker's Diverticulum
TLDR
Diverticulectomy with myotomy has become the mainstream treatment option for Zenker's diverticulum (ZD), and in certain selected patients, endoscopic diverticulotomy may offer some advantages over open surgery, such as less trauma and a lower complication rate. Expand
