A ring (esophagus)

Last revised by Vikas Shah on 11 Nov 2020

A rings are a type of distal esophageal ring. They are above the B ring and occur a few centimeters proximal to the gastro-esophageal junction. They represent a physiological contraction of esophageal smooth muscle covered by mucosa. A rings are uncommonly symptomatic.
