Abstract

There are two basic techniques for esophageal prosthesis intubation: Pulsion and traction. The pulsion technique is superior to the traction technique in that there are fewer associated complications. Also, there is less invasion to the patient. Even so, with pulsion, general anesthesia is sometimes necessary, in cases of highly advanced stricture, to pass a prosthesis with or without the support of esophagoscopy or an introducer. With some cases of highly advanced stricture, it is necessary to use a general anesthesia, to be able to pass the prosthesis through.
