Establishing a rabbit model of malignant esophagostenosis using the endoscopic implantation technique for studies on stent innovation

Stents are recommended in patients with dysphagia caused by esophageal stricture, but an ideal stent does not currently exist. Thus, studies on new esophageal stents are necessary, and suitable animal models are desperately needed for these studies. The aim of this study was to establish a model of malignant esophageal stricture in rabbit for studies on… (More)
