Esophageal stent information and locations in Mexico

An esophageal stent is a procedure used to hold open a narrowed or blocked area of the esophagus with a biocompatible stent (mesh-like tube). Depending on the condition, the stent can be placed temporarily or permanently.
This procedure is done to treat dysphagia, which can be caused by medical conditions like esophageal cancer, esophageal stricture, and esophageal perforation. An esophageal stent will hold open the blocked area to help alleviate the symptoms and improve the passage of food and liquids.
The stent placement is done via upper endoscopy, the specialist will introduce the endoscope through the mouth and pass on a guided wire to measure the length of the stricture to select the appropriate stent. Then, the stent is positioned and expanded on the affected area.
