Summary of "Outcomes of Endoscopic Dilation in Patients with Esophageal Anastomotic Strictures: Comparison Between Different Etiologies."

This retrospective study was aimed at assessing the efficacy of endoscopic dilation for esophageal anastomotic strictures, and to compare response between caustic anastomotic strictures (CAS) and non-caustic anastomotic strictures (NCAS).

Endoscopic Dilation of Bariatric RNY Anastomotic Strictures: a Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.

Gastrojejunostomy anastomotic strictures are a complication of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery without an established treatment guideline. A systematic review and meta-analysis were performed to dete...

Endoscopic management of benign biliary strictures after liver transplantation.

Biliary strictures represent some of the most frequent complications encountered after orthotopic liver transplantation. They comprise an array of biliary abnormalities with variations in anatomical l...

Endoscopic stricturotomy versus ileocolonic resection in the treatment of ileocolonic anastomotic strictures in Crohn's disease.

Endoscopic stricturotomy is a novel technique in the treatment of anastomotic strictures in Crohn's disease (CD). The aim of this study was to compare the outcome of patients with ileocolonic anastomo...

Balloon enteroscopy-assisted radial incision and cutting method for refractory hepaticojejunostomy anastomotic strictures.

 Balloon enteroscopy-assisted balloon dilation and temporary biliary stent placement are effective for hepaticojejunostomy anastomotic strictures (HJAS), but the re-stenosis rates are relatively hig...

Esophageal biomechanics revisited: A tale of tenacity, anastomoses, and suture bite lengths in swine.

Anastomotic tension has repeatedly been associated to anastomotic leakages following esophagectomy for cancer or esophageal atresia repair. We therefore aimed to determine which anastomotic technique ...

Endoscopic Treatment of Biliary Strictures After LTX: Balloon Dilatation Versus Stent Placement

Background and Study Aims: Biliary strictures are a major cause of morbidity following liver transplantation with an overall incidence between 10 and 30 %. Up to now biliary strictures wer...

Collagenase Clostridium Histolyticum for Refractory Iatrogenic Esophageal Strictures

In this open-label pilot study we want to investigate whether intralaesional injection with collagenase clostridium histolyticum (XiapexR) into the esophageal stricture followed by dilatio...

Evaluation of Sequential Stent Addition vs. Incremental Dilation & Stent Exchange for Management of Anastomotic Biliary Strictures After Liver Transplantation

Prospective, randomized comparison of the incremental dilation and stent exchange vs. sequential stent addition approaches for management of anastomotic biliary strictures will facilitate ...

Evaluation of Topical Mitomycin C as Adjuvant Drug to Esophageal Dilation in Children

This study aims to evaluate mitomycin C as an adjunct to endoscopic treatment of esophageal strictures. This is a crossover, controlled, clinical trial in which children with esophageal s...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Incision of Oddi's sphincter or Vater's ampulla performed by inserting a sphincterotome through an endoscope (DUODENOSCOPE) often following retrograde cholangiography (CHOLANGIOPANCREATOGRAPHY, ENDOSCOPIC RETROGRADE). Endoscopic treatment by sphincterotomy is the preferred method of treatment for patients with retained or recurrent bile duct stones post-cholecystectomy, and for poor-surgical-risk patients that have the gallbladder still present.

Control of bleeding performed through the channel of the endoscope. Techniques include use of lasers, heater probes, bipolar electrocoagulation, and local injection. Endoscopic hemostasis is commonly used to treat bleeding esophageal and gastrointestinal varices and ulcers.

Fiberoptic endoscopy designed for duodenal observation and cannulation of VATER'S AMPULLA, in order to visualize the pancreatic and biliary duct system by retrograde injection of contrast media. Endoscopic (Vater) papillotomy (SPHINCTEROTOMY, ENDOSCOPIC) may be performed during this procedure.

A pathological condition characterized by the presence of a number of ESOPHAGEAL DIVERTICULA in the ESOPHAGUS.

Surgical incision of the lower esophageal sphincter near the CARDIA often used to treat ESOPHAGEAL ACHALASIA.
