Like the more common zenker diverticulum it is a false diverticulum and represents an outpouching of mucosa through a muscular defect in this case killians dehiscence.
Killian jamieson diverticulum barium swallow. The barium swallow study showing killianjamieson diverticulum after consultation with the patient a diverticulectomy and esophagomyotomy were scheduled. The diverticulum was approached through an oblique incision along the anterior border of the left sternocleidomastoid muscle. A barium swallow pharyngoesophagogram showed a large left sided diverticulum 4 cm in diameter and a small right sided diverticulum 15 cm in diameter of the pharyngoesophageal junction in the frontal position fig.
This is a case report of such a diverticulum and a description of the transcervical diverticulectomy that we performed on a 49 year old lady. Killian jamieson diverticula are esophageal diverticula. Frontal view from a barium swallow shows an outpouching of barium white arrow arising laterally from the cervical esophagus.
These imaging findings indicated the co existence of killian jamieson diverticula and a thyroid tumor. The purpose of this study was to reassess the findings of killian jamieson diverticula ie proximal lateral cervical diverticula on pharyngoesophagograms and to compare the prevalence clinical findings and radiographic findings of killian jamieson diverticula with those of zenkers diverticulum. Surgery for killianjamieson diverticulum of the esophagus is scarcely reported in the literature owing to the rarity of this entity.
