"
07/01/2009 - "Retrospective study of 25 patients with symptomatic Zenker's diverticula who were treated endoscopically with the harmonic scalpel (Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Inc, Cincinnati, OH). "

07/01/2008 - "A similar case with the same conclusion has been published in the past and since the use of aspirin has become common, especially in the elder population, we present this case report to highlight this possible life-threatening complication of Zenker's diverticulum in patients receiving aspirin."
03/01/1990 - "This report describes a patient who had massive bleeding due to ulceration in the base of a pharyngoesophageal diverticulum, presumed to have been caused by chronic aspirin ingestion. "
10/01/1994 - "We report a case of massive upper gastrointestinal bleeding from a Zenker's diverticulum seen as hemoptysis and associated with chronic ingestion of one aspirin tablet every other day. "
