The breathing is not affected unless the operation is followed by stenosis.
Stimulation, together with the stenosis (narrowing), tend to produce a closure.
It is probable that slight cases of stenosis can be treated better by intubation than by thyrotomy.
Non-stenotic dilatations which are comparable in degree to those produced by stenosis are rare.
The last writer especially distinguishes clearly between dilatation due to stenosis and that due to atony.
The progress of the disease depends upon the degree and the stationary or advancing character of the stenosis.
The sensation of stoppage of the food is usually felt lower down than in ordinary cases of stenosis of the oesophagus.
stenosis, and finally occlusion, of the common duct may arise from the cicatrization of an ulcer.
The degree of dilatation in these cases is rarely so great as when the dilatation is caused by stenosis.
Atrophy of the stomach may be the result of stenosis of the cardia or of the oesophagus.
