The efficacy of pneumatic dilatation with Rigiflex balloons as a treatment for pyloric peptic stenosis was tested in 18 patients. The patients underwent endoscopic dilatation in one sitting, the size of the balloons being gradually increased for a total of 3 minutes. Patients were also treated with omeprazole in the follow-up period. Pneumatic dilatation of upper digestive tract strictures has proved to be an effective and safe technique, showing remarkable advantages over the traditional surgical treatment. It could represent the first step in a therapeutic approach.
