Abstract

Esophageal diverticula can cause disabling symptoms. The authors describe here our preferred surgical approach for Zenker's and epiphrenic diverticula. For most patients, excision of the diverticulum and addition of a myotomy will result in a favorable functional outcome and a low recurrence rate.
