High Resolution Images: Zenkerīs Diverticulum
The endoscopic images in this site are mostly quite compressed in order to make the transmissions times as short as possible. Sometimes it is however nice to have high resolution images, for example for publications, text books or lectures. In these "high resolution files" some larger images are displayed.
Just click on any image to get a magnification (and then click "Back" on Your browser). Click here to get back to the index page.
Zenkerīs diverticulum An outpouching of the pharyngeal wall in the pharyngo-oesophageal region, probably most often resulting from motor abnormalities in this region. The symtoms are dysphagia, which may be transient for a long time and aspiration - sometimes during sleep causing aspiration pneumonia. Zenkerīs diverticulum is easily vizualised by an X-ray-examination, as in these pictures. Endoscopy may be difficult, the patient cannot easily swallow the endoscope, and Zenkerīs diverticulum is one of the reasons for the very rare complications - perforation - during endoscopy. Zenkerīs diverticulum is treated surgically.
