Esophageal rings and webs are thin structures that partially occlude the esophageal lumen.

 

This topic will review the pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, and treatment of esophageal rings and webs. The approach to patients with dysphagia and esophageal strictures is discussed elsewhere. (See "Approach to the evaluation of dysphagia in adults" and "Management of benign esophageal strictures".)
