ABSTRACT: We report our experience in treating esophageal strictures with balloon dilatation in 19 patients with esophageal affection in Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) dystrophic type. We performed 84 dilatations, all under general anesthesia. All patients could be sufficiently dilated by balloons and tolerated the procedure well. We did not experience any complications. In spite of the fact that repeated procedures will be necessary according to the progressive nature of the disease, we found this mode superior to operative procedures, stoma or replacement.
