    Shotsky Ring

    Can anyone provide more information on what a Shotsky Ring is, how it relates to GERD and what the symptoms are? I am proficient with search engines but found very very little.

    Thanks!

    Lightbulb Re: You mean Schatzki's Ring ?

    A Schatzkiís ring could be
    a congenital problem that may only cause symptoms after many years


    or it may be an acquired narrowing ( from esophageal stricture due to refluxed acid into the esophagus causing inflammation and scarring). It is treated with dilation and also PPIS if it ts acid caused.
