Esophageal Disorders


Description

Esophagus function

The esophagus is the tube that carries food and liquids from the mouth into the stomach. It is made of layers of muscles that contract and relax sending food downward. There is a ring of muscles at each end of the esophagus, called sphincters. These sphincters open to allow food to move food into the esophagus, close to prevent food from coming back into the mouth and control the release of food into the stomach.

Upon swallowing, the upper esophageal sphincter opens and the esophageal muscles contract to push food downward. The lower sphincter opens temporarily to allow food to pass into the stomach. Then the sphincter closes to prevent food and stomach acid from flowing backward up the esophagus.
