“…Several techniques have been proposed for the treatment of the PDE. Among the techniques employed, the diverticulopexy proposed by Lerut et al 8 in 1990 was replaced by diverticulectomy associated with the cricopharyngeal muscle myotomy, the left cervicotomy being the standard access, with excellent results, represented by no mortality, low morbidity and satisfactory remission of symptoms [9][10][11][12][13][14][15] . Endoscopic treatment, initially proposed by Mosher in 1917 16 , was revived by Dolhman and Mattsson in 1960 17 , and consisted of the complete section of the septum between the esophagus and the diverticulum, promoting communication between the two structures [18][19][20] .…”

“…1,2,[7][8][9][10][11] This condition was described by the first time by Ludlow in 1767, and in 1877 Zenker reported the association of this diverticulum with the upper esophageal sphincter dysfunction. 1,2,4,6,7,10 ZD has been more frequently found in Northern Europe, North America and Australia in comparison with Southern Europe, Japan or Indonesia. 1,7,10 Currently, the therapeutic options vary between conservative and surgical treatment, which may be either classic or endoscopic.…”

“…1,2 Zenker's diverticulum (ZD), also called cricopharyngeal, pharyngoesophageal, or hypopharyngeal diverticulum, is a pouch containing only the mucosa and submucosa layers (false diverticulum) at the pharyngoesophageal junction. [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12] This pulsion diverticulum occurs dorsally in the pharyngoesophageal wall, between the inferior constrictor muscle of the pharynx and the cricopharyngeal muscle, an area of relative weakness known as the Killian triangle or Killian dehiscence. [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12] The annual incidence .of symptomatic ZD in the United Kingdom was estimated at two cases per 100,000 population, mainly in males, from middle age to the 9th decade of life.…”
