Abstract

Management of a Benign Oesophageal Stricture in a Dog using a Biodegradable Self- Expanding Stent

A three-year-old female neutered Staffordshire bull terrier presented with a progressive two week history of regurgitation following surgery for septic peritonitis. Oesophagoscopy revealed a narrow stricture in the mid-oesophagus. Stricture reformation occurred following repeated endoscopic and fluoroscopic guided balloon dilations, with the addition of intralesional triamcinolone, on eleven occasions.
