The oesophagus begins at the lower edge of the cricoid cartilage, opposite the lower border of the sixth cervical vertebra, and ends at the cardiac opening of the stomach, opposite the eleventh thoracic vertebra.. It is 25 cm. (10 in.) long and begins 15 cm. (6 in.) distant from the teeth. In the neck it inclines to the left, hence oesophagotomy is performed on that side.

The Global Burden of Disease (GBD) provides systematic epidemiological estimates for an unprecedented major health conditions. Its methods and results are presented here, including: disaggregated death.Falling from a height (for example, falling from a ladder or down a staircase) often results in head trauma, rib fractures and other orthopedic injuries.

As with crash injuries and other forms of trauma, falls represent a greater risk for the elderly.
