Banswara resident Ajay, age 6 years, was suffering from breathlessness since long time. A ball type tumor could be seen developing near esophagus. On a routine consultation to Geetanjali Medical College & Hospital’s Pediatric Surgeon Dr. Atul Mishra & investigations of CT Scan confirmed the presence of a tumor attached to esophagus, & creating a pressure on wind pipe. Since, the tumor was big so was decided to perform the surgery.
“Further investigations of the tumor confirmed it as a duplication cyst. Esophageal duplication cysts are the second most common duplication cysts following small bowel duplications cysts, accounting for approximately 10-15% of gastrointestinal duplication cysts. The prevalence of esophageal duplications cysts is 0.0122%. Being a very complicated procedure, the surgery lasted 5 hours but the cyst was removed successfully”, said the treating doctor Dr. Atul Mishra.
He also further said that, “Patients with esophageal duplication cysts are usually asymptomatic but can develop symptoms (such as dysphagia or chest pain) due to compression of surrounding structures.” Dr. Atul Mishra from last two years, have performed successful surgeries in neonates suffering from stomach, urinary, kidney, chest deformities in Geetanjali Hospital.
