The Keeper embolectomy catheter as well as the GPSCath and IQCath balloon dilation
catheters, all commercially available in the US, are based on Hotspura[euro](tm)s VisioValve injection system.
The steroid and sham injection groups were similar in terms of demographics, and all patients in both groups were treated with a proton pump inhibitor and underwent gradual dilation of the stricture using fluoroscopically-assisted balloon dilation
over a guidewire every 4-6 weeks.
A February 1992 DATTA evaluation concluded that the effectiveness of endoscopic balloon dilation

Mucosal perforation during laparoscopic surgery for achalasia: impact of preoperative pneumatic balloon dilation
. Surg Endosc 2017; 31: 1427-35.
The traditional treatment is mastoidectomy, routinely combined with middle ear ventilation tube insertion or tube insertion during re-examination after operation. Eustachian tuboplasty by balloon dilation
can improve the pathological state of ET via specific mechanisms to achieve functional recovery and satisfactory clinical efficacy.,
This process generates an axial pressure on the stricture ring and theoretically poses a higher risk of esophageal perforation compared to the balloon dilation
The patient was successfully treated with endoscopic sphincterotomy plus balloon dilation
(ESBD) and Hem-o-lok clips extraction.
Because of the recurrent and symptomatic nature of the patient's sphenoid sinus infections, balloon dilation
of the left sphenoid sinus was offered as a treatment option.
However major limitations of EBD is difficulty in removing large stones (=10 mm in diameter) and a high incidence of pancreatitis (5% to 15%).11213 The risk of pancreatitis with EBD seems to be related to the pressure loaded on the orifice of the main pancreatic duct during balloon dilation

for the treatment of benign tracheal stenosis, Maria del Mar Cirino-Marcano, M.D., reported in a poster session at the annual meeting of the American College of Chest Physicians.

in BHP will parallel that observed for balloon angioplasty.
