Increasing Investments to Boost R&D and Therapeutic Methods to Help Uplift Achalasia Treatment Market

The symptoms of achalasia include chest pain, weight loss, heartburn, regurgitation, nocturnal coughing, dysphagia and postprandial aspiration, among others. Dysphagia is the most common symptom in patients suffering from achalasia. The causes of achalasia are still unknown. Achalasia is associated with abnormalities of oesophageal peristalsis. Achalasia treatment involves the removal of obstructions caused because the lower oesophageal sphincter muscle fails to relax. Drugs such as isosorbide or nifedipine can provide some relief to patients suffering from achalasia. It is estimated that approximately 70% of achalasia cases are more effectively treated by the enlargement of the lower oesophageal sphincter muscle through a procedure known as pneumatic balloon dilation. Achalasia generally affects adults aged between 25 and 60 years. However, it is likely to occur at any age, including childhood. The symptoms of achalasia appear gradually. People suffering from achalasia are expected to be at the risk of developing oesophageal cancer.
