Example text

The widest stent possible is chosen to create an effective seal between the stent and the wall of the esophagus. The stent is deployed so that the defect is covered by the middle of the stent. If there is not sufficient overlap between the stent and the normal esophageal wall on either side of the defect, more than one stent should be deployed. Placement of a covered stent across a fistula or perforation almost invariably results in the immediate and complete closure of the defect. This can be confirmed by the injection of contrast medium into the esophagus above the stent (Figs.

Stents are placed using radiological or endoscopic techniques with the aid of fluoroscopy. Only the radiologic method will be described. Before the stent is inserted, an esophagogram is performed to delineate the site and length of the stricture. , xylocaine), and the patient is placed in the left lateral position on a fluoroscopy table. A mouth guard is placed to protect the teeth and the gums and a catheter is passed perorally into the esophagus to the level of the stricture. Contrast medium is injected to define the upper limit of the stricture.

1991). However, the two techniques are probably complementary and are best suited to different tumors. Laser is more effective for fleshy intraluminal tumors, whilst plastic tubes are better in sclerotic malignant stenoses. Overall, laser treatment is the more expensive because it has to be repeated. 5 Other Endoscopic Methods Ethanol injection, bipolar electrocoagulation therapy, and argon coagulation are all methods used to restore patency of the esophageal lumen by producing tumor necrosis without the need for expensive laser equipment and the stringent safety precautions required for laser therapy.
