Balloon Dilatation and Stenting of Long Complex Oesophageal Stricture

A 30-year-old female presented with a swallowing problem a few days following accidental drinking of a corrosive liquid. The main symptoms were dysphagia and odynophasia on both liquids and solids. A subsequent barium swallow confirmed severe oesophageal stenosis (Fig 1.). Patient was kept nil by mouth and fed via TPN.
Following general anaesthesia, the patient underwent oesophageal dilatation and stent deployment.
