Post-anesthetic esophageal stricture causing chronic regurgitation in a 7 year old female Bichon Frise
Krell, Jamie Lee
Regurgitation due to an esophageal stricture after general anesthesia is rare (0.07% incidence). Although the risk is low, this anesthetic complication should not be overlooked, and should be considered in any case where regurgitation is a chief complaint. Factors increasing the risk of post-anesthetic esophageal stricture include certain anesthetic agents, intra-abdominal surgery, and being a female. Females are 90% more likely to develop a stricture post-anesthesia because of routine ovariohysterectomies.
