Abstract: We earlier reported that mucosal defect involving over three-fourths of the circumference of the esophagus after endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) is a risk factor for the development of the stricture. Although endoscopic balloon dilation (EBD) is a useful procedure to relieve the stricture, there is no standard strategy for preventing development of the stricture. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and the safety of preventive EBD.
