Esophogeal Web

Anyone out there have this? My daughter's doc thinks this is what she has and is sending her for a barium swallow.....

If that's what they find, what's the follow-up protocol?

Thanks in advance,

Re: Esophogeal Web

Treatment usually consists of opening up the throat so the web no longer blocks it. This can be done with a balloon introduced during upper GI endoscopy or with a long, flexible, tubular instrument called a dilator.
