Esophageal Dilatation

An esophageal dilatation is a procedure performed to resolve an esophageal, stomach or small bowel stricture (a blockage) and restore normal flow by stretching open the blocked area. This procedure is performed by placing a dilating instrument into the esophagus either alone or through an endoscope. Usually performed as an outpatient procedure, with conscious sedation, an endoscope with an instrument for dilation is passed through the mouth into the esophagus, stomach and duodenum to gently enlarge the area of stricture to a given diameter.
