Abstract

• A stricture developed in a patient two months after undergoing a Billroth I gastroduodenal anastomosis. His mechanical gastric obstruction was relieved by dilation up to 37 F caliber under direct vision using a fiberendoscope. The patient became, and has remained, symptom free. Visualization of the area two months after dilation showed an adequately patent anastomosis.
