Abstract

Twenty stricture‐plasties have been performed for multiple tubercular strictures of the gastro‐intestinal tract in 9 patients, who in total had 35 structures. The procedure has been found to be safe, simple and effective in relieving obstructive symptoms. It does not appear to carry the disadvantages of entero‐anastomosis or multiple and/or massive resections in cases of multiple tubercular strictures of the small bowel.
