Thorax CT before and after MDC for OS
The esophagus is canalized.
On the right side of the esophagus are visible two diverticula, one in the middle thoracic, just below the bronchial bifurcation and the other, larger, with ingests in the lumen, in epi diaphragmatic.
There is parenchyma disventylated in the lower lobe of the right lung.
Many diverticula, especially if small, may be asymptomatic, or there may be symptoms not related to the diverticulum, but to the motor dysfunction that caused it. The most frequent symptoms are dysphagia and regurgitation.
Epiphrenic diverticula can also cause dysphagia and regurgitation.
The diverticula of the middle thoracic oesophagus are generally asymptomatic.
