ABSTRACT: The author presents his experience with treatment of 241 cases of cicatrising esophageal stenosis. Of these, 172 patients were treated with dilatation and 69 patients were treated with stents. A detailed analysis of the advantages of a novel stent therapy as a continuous dilatation technique covering the entire range of the remodelling period of the cicatrix, has been made in the article. Efficacy of systemic and intra lesional have been compared. Only 11 patients, out of the 241, underwent surgery for strictures not responding to stent/dilation therapy. Extraluminal removal of scarred cicatrix as an alternative to esophageal replacement procedures has been performed in 25 children and the results have been discussed.
