Epiphrenic esophageal diverticulum is considered a false diverticulum as only compromises de mucosa and submucosa. Clinical manifestations appear when it achieves approximately 7.5 cm on diameter. We present a video of an 83-year old female with a longstanding history of GERD and high- grade dysphagia who was diagnosed with a 6 cm distal esophageal diverticulum. A laparoscopic resection of the diverticulum and Heller myotomy was safely performed. The patient had resolution of the dysphagia postoperatively.
