Both bougies (SavaryGuillard dilators) and “through-the-scope” balloons are used for stricture dilation. The through-the-scope balloons are more convenient because they do not require fluoroscopic guidance. However, in patients with long strictures that cannot be traversed by endoscope or with tight strictures in which the lumen cannot be seen, a guidewire is used with fluoroscopic assistance. Balloon or Savary dilation over the guidewire is performed with fluoroscopic guidance. Dilation is usually limited to no more than 3 sizes in a single session, and patients are brought back for repeat sessions as indicated by their symptoms.
