Endoscopic balloon hydrodilatation and endoprosthetic treatment of esophageal and esophageal anastomotic strictures



Endoscopic balloon hydrodilatation and endoprosthetic treatment of esophageal and esophageal anastomotic strictures



Endoscopy 21(1): 11-14



In 37 patients with benign stenosis of the esophagus and esophageal anastomoses, the method of dilatation using special balloon catheters under endoscopic control was employed, and adequate dilatation of the stenotic region accomplished. In comparison with balloon dilators, bougies exert forces along the radial axis, and no tension is applied to the esophagus along the longitudinal axis. To obtain prolonged remission and decrease the number of "supporting" dilatations of esophageal benign stenosis and esophageal anastomoses, temporary intubation of the esophagus with a silicone prosthesis was performed in 7 patients. Further clinical application, and a study of the long-term results of endoscopic balloon hydro-dilatation and endoprosthesis for treating esophageal and anastomotic esophageal strictures, will help to elaborate more precise indications for the combined use of these methods.
