Incisional endoscopic therapy as a therapeutic alternative in esophageal anastomotic strictures refractory to conventional treatment

717-719

Esther Merino Gallego, Eva Martínez Amate, Francisco Javier Gallego Rojo,

Esophageal anastomotic strictures are a non-negligible cause of benign strictures and secondary dysphagia. It should be noted that these are often complex strictures, with a large ischemic-fibrotic component. Thus, they are difficult to treat due to their recurrence, despite endoscopic dilation. Endoscopic incisional therapy appears as a therapeutic alternative in this type of patient, which allows the elimination of the stenotic ring, with a good efficacy and safety profile. We present the case of a patient with postoperative esophageal strictures refractory to treatment with dilation and endoscopic prosthesis, who was finally satisfactorily treated with incisional therapy.
