Figure 1
Figure 1 Resolution of the laceration above the mass with metal endoscopic clips. A: 2 cm laceration of the esophagus (30 cm distal to the incisors); B: Submucosal mass was beneath the laceration, with spontaneous rupture; C: Detailed view of the crevasse showing granulated tissues and purulent exudate; D: Laceration was completely closed with metal endoscopic clips.
Figure 2
Figure 2 Computed tomography showed a double-barreled esophagus without thickening of the esophageal wall. A: Chest computed tomography scan showed eccentric thickening of the esophageal wall; B: Chest computed tomography scan taken immediately after endoscopy showed worsened diffuse thickening of the esophageal wall; C: Chest computed tomography scan taken 2 mo after endoscopy showed that the thickening of the esophageal wall was alleviated with a double-barreled esophagus visible.
Figure 3
Figure 3 Endoscopic incision of the septum between two lumens was performed using a dual-knife process with diathermy. A: Intramural submucosal dissection, with one endoscopic clip remaining; B: Internal space of the dissection; C: Endoscopic incision of the septum between two lumens; D: Completely cut septum.

Figure 4 Esophagogram taken 3 d after endoscopic incision showed the dissection had disappeared, and the barium passed smoothly through the esophagus.
