Schatzki's Ring

more about Schatzki's Ring


Lower esophageal ring


  • These are thin rings of tissue that occur in the lower (distal) esophagus.  This condition is always associated with a hiatal hernia (i.e., part of the stomach slides through the diaphragm into the chest).

  • Intermittent difficulty passing solid foods (especially if food is poorly chewed).  Food feels like it gets stuck in the lower chest. May feel discomfort, pressure, or pain.

  • Barium swallow
  • Endoscopy -- scope passed into the esophagus

  • Bougie dilators (balloon dilation of the ring)
