Endoscopic diverticulectomy for a large zenkerâ??s esophageal diverticula.

Here we report a 95-years-old woman presenting with a chronic history of frequent cough, dysphagia for solids and later difficulty in swallowing fluids along with decreased appetite and weight loss from 6 months ago who diagnosed with large Zenker diverticula. According to the patient’s age and general condition, the surgeon consultation considered her as inoperable so an endoscopic diverticulectomy performed as a therapeutic option by using flexible endoscope under deep sedation and the patient discharged from hospital 5 days after procedure.
