Megaesophagus, an affection characterized by aperistalses of the esophageal body and deficient relaxation of lower esophageal sphincter, has disphagia as main symptom. The aim of this study was to evaluate the nutritional status of patients with non advanced megaesophagus in pre and post-operative periods of cardiomyotomy. Ten patients were evaluated at 5 moments (pre-operative - M 1 and post-operative - 1, 3, 6 ant 12 months after surgery). The anthropometric, hematimetric and biochemical parameters were studied in the 5 moments. Conclusions: 1. Most 017 the patients with non-advanced megaesophagus are eutrophic; 2. Surgical treatment determines an improvement in nutritional status and an increase in HDL cholesterol values.
