Dilatation of Severe Corrosive Esophageal Stricture Guided by Right Coronary Artery Catheter


Nonoperative dilatation techniques such as bougination, balloon dilatation, endoscopic laser therapy, and endoscopic electro-coagulation, have been applied to relieve dysphagia due to esophageal strictures, but the most widly used ia peroral dilatation once a guide wire has been passed under direct vision using a fiberoptic endoscope. Some cases of severe and curved esophageal strictures coutd'nt be introduced the conventional steel guide wire. We desecibe a method of cannulation of these difficult strictures guided by torque control angiographic catheter with radiogrphic control. A case of 18 year old man with severe corrosive esophageal stricture ingested HCl was successfully treated with esophageal dilatation with Savary-Gilliard dilator guided by Judkin's right coronary artery catheter.
