Current treatments for pediatric esophageal strictures require repeated procedures under anesthesia, increasing risks of esophageal rupturing and adverse neuropsychological effects. Our solution combines a balloon dilator with a nasogastric feeding tube to allow for multiple dilations on a single stricture without needing anesthetic each time.
