Abstract

Temporary placement of a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)-covered retrievable expandable nitinol stent was performed to treat a benign anastomotic duodenojejunal stricture that was refractory to repeated balloon dilation procedures. The procedure provided a favorable outcome for the patient and was completed without complications. This result suggests that successful treatment of benign strictures of the gastric outlet or duodenum is possible with use of retrievable stents.
