UES Dysfunction

UES Dysfunction

UES dysfunction occurs when the upper esophageal segment (UES) — the muscular segment separating the throat from the esophagus — is either open or too loose, which allows food to back up into the throat from the esophagus, or too tight, which prevents food from moving from the throat to the stomach.
