Esophageal dilation information and locations in Mexico

Esophageal dilation is a procedure used to help dilate and stretch narrowings of the esophagus and provide relief from dysphagia, peptic stricture, eosinophilic esophagitis, and achalasia.
Esophageal stricture is an abnormal tightening or narrowing of the tube that carries food and liquids from the mouth to the stomach. This condition can occur when scar tissue forms in the esophagus due to GERD, radiation therapy, and treatment for esophageal varices.
During the procedure, the specialist introduces an endoscope through the mouth to locate the narrowed area on the esophagus. Once found the stricture, a special balloon or dilator is inflated to stretch and expand the affected area.
