Endoscopic methods for the treatment of benign esophageal stenosis

Endoscopic methods for the treatment of benign esophageal stenosis

Revista de Medicina Interna Neurologie Psihiatrie Neurochirurgie Dermato-Venerologie Serie Medicina Interna 36(3): 265-269

Two methods for the dilatation of benign esophageal stenosis are described, one with original plastic dilators combined with fibroendoscopy, the other with a balloon catheter. The immediate results were favorable in all cases, reflected clinically by improvement of dysphagia. Both methods were well tolerated by the patients, and are recommended in patients in whom surgery is contraindicated.
