Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:Esophageal anastomotic stricture post esophagectomy (esophagogastric strictures).

  • Esophagectomy performed at the same institution where patient enrollment and follow-up is planned.
  • Two dilations to at least 16 mm in diameter since esophagectomy.
  • 1st dilation no more than 6 months post esophagectomy and 2nd dilation within 6 months of 1st dilation to 16mm.
  • Dysphagia score of 2 (ability to swallow semi-solid foods), 3 (ability to swallow liquids only) or 4 (unable to swallow liquids) at baseline.
  • Unable to pass a standard endoscope (approx. 9.8 mm diameter).
  • Age 18 years or older.
  • Willing and able to comply with the study procedures and provide

Exclusion Criteria:Stricture within 2 cm of the upper esophageal sphincter.

  • Dysphagia related to motility disorder.

  • Prior esophageal stent placements post esophagectomy.
  • Active erosive esophagitis.
  • Sensitivity to any components of the stent or delivery system.
  • Concurrent medical condition that would affect the investigator's ability to evaluate the patient's condition or could compromise patient safety. Participation in a clinical trial evaluating an investigational device within 3 months prior to enrollment in this study.
  • Stricture length > 5 cm.
