Abstract

Achalasia presenting in the context of morbid obesity is rare. The case is presented of a woman with achalasia and morbid obesity who was treated with simultaneous laparoscopic esophageal myotomy and gastric bypass. The sparse literature addressing these rare patients is reviewed and management considerations discussed. Simultaneous laparoscopic esophageal myotomy and gastric bypass is safe, feasible and provides good results.
