Fluoroscopically guided balloon dilation of anastomotic strictures after total gastrectomy: long-term results



Fluoroscopically guided balloon dilation of anastomotic strictures after total gastrectomy: long-term results



Ajr. American Journal of Roentgenology 188(3): 647-651



The purpose of this study was to evaluate the radiologic and clinical effectiveness and long-term results of fluoroscopically guided balloon dilation of anastomotic strictures after total gastrectomy. Fluoroscopically guided balloon dilation is effective and safe and has encouraging long-term results in the management of benign anastomotic strictures after total gastrectomy.
