The approach to managing achalasia has been streamlined, but management of non-achalasia motility disorders remains challenging. The ISDE (International Society for Diseases of the Esophagus) hosted a virtual presentation focused on the evaluation and management of non-achalasia motility disorders moderated by Michael Vaezi, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, USA.
During this 60-minute presentation panelists discussed opioid induced esophageal dysfunction, non-achalasia spastic disorders (jackhammer, distal esophageal spasm), and hypomotility disorders (ineffective esophageal motility and esophageal aperistalsis).
