Abstract

Benign esophageal stricture is caused by a variety of conditions. Considering its benign character, conservative management should be attempted first, using various dilatation instruments, such as a Celestin dilator [1, 2] and a baloon catheter [3, 4]. If the conservative management is not successful, surgical treatment is required to relieve the stricture. This retrospective study was attempted to clarify the limitation of conservative management and the indications for surgical treatment for benign esophageal strictures.
