Join Yvonne Brandenburg, RVT, VTS SAIM and Jordan Porter RVT, LVT, VTS SAIM as we talk about:

  • Deglutition is the action of swallowing. This means when food travels down the esophagus from the mouth down into the stomach. Well, with megaesophagus, there is a lack of movement from the esophagus and it becomes very dilated. Dive down the esophagus with us to get a clearer picture. 


Question of the Week

  • Do you have a memorable patient that had megaesophagus? Post a picture for us, if you receive owner permission.
