In this study, we evaluate a minimally invasive management consisting of flexible endoscopy, balloon dilatation and intralesional steroid injection in children, with a history of caustic ingestion. Between April 2002 and January 2009, 350 (206 males and 144 females) children with a history(More)

Patient characteristics, indications, complications, and duration of TPD(More)
The aim of the study reported here was to evaluate the biochemical and histopathologic effects of omeprazole and vitamin E in rats with corrosive esophageal burns. A total of 144 Wistar Albino rats were divided into 12 experimental groups (12 rats per group) and used in an animal study. Group I rats were given a laparotomy and received no treatment (control(More)
