Description R46 Popis výsledku v anglickém jazyce Vysvělivka Esophageal achalasia is a rarely occurring disorder. One of the treatment modalities for patients in good general condition is surgery myotomy. This study provides a description of the technique of laparoscopic myotomy supplemented with partial antireflux cuff. The study included 35 patients undergoing surgery. Only 3 of the patients had to be monitored for extended period due to dysphagia. No patient from the group required re-operation. No serious peroperative or postoperative complication was observed. The authors stress the importance of peroperative esophagogastroscopy to assess whether the extent of myotomy is adequate, and to rule out perforation of esophageal mucous membrane. this study was suported by grant NPV II-2B06060
