Late results in patients with Schatzki ring treated by endoscopic electrosurgical incision of the ring.

In 17 ambulatory patients with severe intermittent dysphagia an endoscopic electrosurgical radial incision of a Schatzki ring was made with a modified straight retractable sphincterotome. The incision was successfully accomplished with immediate relief of dysphagia in all patients. Fourteen patients remain asymptomatic with a mean follow-up of 46 months after the first treatment. Three patients required a second incision and they have been asymptomatic for more than 24 months. There was one mild bleeding episode. Endoscopic electrosurgical incision of the Schatzki ring is an effective therapeutic modality in selected patients.
