This study consists of clinical, physiologic, and histologic information obtained from eight patients with non-neoplastic narrowing of the esophagogastric junction. Seven of the patients were studied by simultaneous cineradiographic and manometric technique during this past year, the remaining patient was studied prior to that time, and only manometric measurements were made in conjunction with spot films. This group of patients has been unusually helpful in defining the anatomic relationships because of the ease of demonstrating the narrowed gastroesophageal junction. A definite intrinsic sphincter was demonstrated above this "B" ring, separate from the diaphragm.
