 Esophageal Stenting 


A tube placed in the esophagus to keep a blocked area open so the patient can swallow soft food and liquids. Esophageal stents are made of metal mesh, plastic, or silicone, and may be used in the treatment of esophageal cancer.


During the procedure, the surgeon places a long, thin tube (catheter) down the back of your mouth and into your esophagus. Next, the surgeon places a folded-up hollow tube (stent) over the catheter in the correct position across the blockage. The stent expands against the walls of your esophagus, giving support.


The permanent stents have a risk of eroding into the surrounding tissues or may result in growth of the tumor into the stent. Overall, the use of esophageal stents in the treatment of patients with esophageal disease is growing.
