Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Two male patients, 75 and 53 years old, with totally occluded esophagus were treated. Sharp recanalization was performed using a combined radiologic and endoscopic technique. Following successful penetration with the needle through the occluded segment and balloon dilation, the created channel was stabilized with esophageal stent, with subsequent palliative effect.
