Deviation Of The Esophagus

Deviation of the esophagus may be marked in the presence of a

deformed vertebral column, though dysphagia is a very uncommon

symptom. The lack of esophageal symptoms in deviation of spinal

production is probably explained by the longitudinal shortening of the

spine which accompanies the deflection. Compression stenosis of the

esophagus is commonly associated with deviations produced by a

thoracic mass.
