Middle East J Dig Dis/ Vol.11/ No.4/October 2019 Long-term Results of Endoscopic Balloon Dilatation for Gastric Outlet Obstruction Caused by Peptic Ulcer Disease

 Gastric outlet obstructions (GOO) is a disabling complication of peptic ulcer disease (PUD). The introduction of endoscopic through the scope balloon dilatation (EBD) has eased the management but there are few reports on the long term results of this modality of treatment on patients’ symptoms.


Over a period of 4 years from January 2012 to December 2015 in two major referral hospitals affiliated to Shiraz university, medical endoscopy reports were reviewed retrospectively to identify those who received EBD for the treatment of GOO due to PUD .All of these patients were recalled and their current status were evaluated.


22 consecutive patients with symptomatic GOO secondary to benign stricture underwent endoscopic balloon dilatation by a single operator. Of them, 14 had balloon dilatation twice and 6 had ballooning three times. The interval between the first referral and the last follow-up was 25.2 ± 10.3 (min: 4.8 max:43.4) months. The averages of maximum balloon size were 14.4 ± 5 mm in the first session, 14.3 ± 3.1mm in the second session, and 16 ± 2.4 mm in the third session. 73% of the patients had a significant improvement in clinical symptom with two sessions of EBD and did not require repeat dilatation.


EBD is a safe and efficient method in the management of GOO with good long term results.
