4th pilot rapid assessment of WP5 JA2 Strand B on “Biodegradable stents for the treatment of refractory or recurrent benign oesophageal stenosis”

The purpose of the assessment is to address the research question whether the use of biodegradable stents for benign refractory or recurrent oesophageal stenosis is more effective and/or safer than self-expanding metal or plastic stents or oesophageal dilation.

Final version of the assessment was published in May 2015
