Midesophageal pulsion diverticula are rare and asymptomatic clinical entities, which usually develop secondary to esophageal motor dysfunction. Diverticulectomy with myotomy is one of the surgical treatment options. In this case report, we present a patient with midesophageal pulsion diverticulum in whom we managed the postoperative leakage following excision of the diverticulum, by endoluminal esophageal stenting.

Key words: Esophagus, pulsion, diverticulum, stent
