Aim/Background. Although many agents have been tested as treatment options for caustic esophageal burn (CEB), none have successfully suppressed the formation of strictures. Thus,the purpose of this study was to determine the efficacy of Contractubex (R) gel (10% onion extract, 50 U/gr heparin, and 1% allantoin) in stricture preventing after CEB.
