The radiological management of gastrointestinal strictures and other obstructive lesions.

Abstract

Balloon dilation of gastrointestinal strictures using a radiologic, endoscopic or combined approach is a safe, effective means of managing an ever-increasing variety of stricturing processes. At present the ability to dilate strictures in the gastrointestinal tract is limited mainly by access. Balloon dilation is now well established in the management of oesophageal and anastomotic lesions. The place of balloon dilation in the management of Crohn's disease and in the management of malignant disease requires further evaluation.
