Detailed understanding of the functional anatomy of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) is germane to successful surgical treatment of esophageal disorders. However, a comprehensive concept of the structure–function relationship of the LES is currently lacking. We reviewed published anatomic evidence, medical imaging, and impedance manometry data sets and developed a novel functional concept of the LES. Morphologic evidence accumulated over the past three decades indicates that the LES is an… CONTINUE READING
