What treatment is for Schatzki Ring?
Management of these rings involves procedures that will stretch or fracture these rings,
thus allowing freer passage of solid food. Stretching or fracturing
can be performed with endoscopes or tapered dilators inserted through
the mouth, also by deflated balloons that are placed across the
ring and are then blown up. Open surgery is hardly ever necessary
to handle these rings.
