Esophageal Structures

Esophageal strictures are areas of local esophageal narrowing. They can result from ingestion of corrosive agents, previous esophageal atresia repair, epidermolysis bullosa or gastroesophageal reflux. A commonly used therapy is using balloon catheters under fluoroscopic guidance to dilate the esophagus.
