The case description is adequate. The Discussion explains the challenges in treating the patient in the present case clearly. It also offers useful suggestions with respect to the treatment regimen. The study is well supported with briefly explained figures. The study further discusses that although an aberrant right subclavian artery is an infrequent cause of esophageal dysphagia, extra care should be taken when evaluating patients with atypical presentations and locations of a focal esophageal stricture. The Conclusion aptly recommends surgical repair over stenting as a definitive treatment.

Further comments on the paper

Comments: This case report presents the case of a 37-year-old patient with a history of dysphagia and a presumed diagnosis of an esophageal stricture based on a barium swallow study. Dysphagia Lusoria is characterized by difficulty in swallowing due to an aberrant right subclavian artery that originates from the distal aortic arch and courses posteriorly to the esophagus. Further, the patient was referred to cardiovascular surgery and underwent definitive repair with a right subclavian to carotid bypass via a supraclavicular approach.
