what is a cervical web and how do they treat it?

Cervical web: Not my area of expertise, but my understanding: a narrowing in the upper part of the esophagus, can be congenital or occur secondary to other causes, such as chronic esophagitis. If it is causing swallowing symptoms (problems with solids), then a dilation procedure may offer relief, at least temporarily. Laser may also be an option. A gastroenterologist would help determine options/recommendations.
