Abstract

Benign colonic strictures are uncommon but not rare in endoscopic practice. Strictures of the colon develop as a consequence of numerous disorders. Colonic strictures typically are asymptomatic or cause chronic obstructive symptoms. Nonsurgical methods, particularly dilatation and occasionally endoscopic stent placement or laser therapy, are currently available options in the treatment of benign colonic stricture. Surgical treatment is reserved for those who fail endoscopic remediation or are not candidates for endoscopic treatment.
