Abstract

Balloon dilatation is a popular method in corrosive esophageal stricture but swallowing difficulty due to recurrent or intractable stricture even in the repeated dilatation needs a esophageal reconstruction. Stomach, colon or jejunum has been used for the prosthesis of esophagus. Many problems such as leakage in anastomosis site, stricture, reflex, adhesion, strangulation, and engrafted esophageal cancer are associated with the remnant esophageal stricture in the esophago-gastrostomy and esophageal bypass surgery. Easy and reproduceable method of operation with lower complication and without functional disability is needed. A new operation method of mucosal resection and plasty is introduced in the corrosive esophageal stricture that are not relieved by repeated dilatation.
