A: Endoscopic view of the Zenker’s diverticulum with muscle septum, located 20 cm from the incisors; B: The mucosal incision was performed after lifted submucosa by using glycerol with a few drops of indigo carmine injected at the septum; C: Submucosal tunneling and dissection was performed along both sides of the septal wall; D: A submucosal tunnel behind the ulcer contain many small vessel, we partially coagulate by coagrasper to stop bleeding and also avoid mucosal perforation; E: The ulcer after submucosal tunneling: The picture shows ulcer while checking mucosal integrity after performed submucosal tunneling before undergo myotomy; F and G: The myotomy was performed until the last fibers of septal muscle; H: The mucosal defect closed by through-the-scope clip.
