A pilot study of scheduled endoscopic balloon dilation with oral agent tranilast to improve the efficacy of stricture dilation after endoscopic submucosal dissection of the esophagus.

Abstract

BACKGROUNDS AND AIM As circumferential or near-circumferential endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for superficial esophageal neoplasms might evoke refractory strictures, multiple sessions of endoscopic balloon dilation (EBD) are required. We aimed to assess the effectiveness and safety of oral agent tranilast with EBD for improving the efficacy of… (More)
