Abstract

The last decade has seen several advances which have opened the door to diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy within the small intestine, an area long considered the "final frontier" of endoscopic imaging. The introduction of the double balloon enteroscope into clinical practice has allowed for the application of several therapeutic techniques within the small intestine. This chapter will review two such techniques: enteral stenting and balloon dilation.
