Conference paper


During the years from 1986 to 1990, 1002 patients with postoperative anastomotic stenosis of esophacardial carcinoma were treated in our hospital by applying our self-made dilator No. 1 combined with the Japanese savary dilator and two powders called open-diaphragm-pulvis-fluid and pass-switch-pulvis-fluid. The high effective rate (98%) allows nearly all patients who have undergone resection of esophagocardial carcinoma to avoid undergoing a second operation and, therefore, the danger of operative death is reduced, especially for invalids and the aged.
