Treatment of sleeve stricture
You can convert to gastric bypass, which would bypass the narrow part of the sleeve. This is the most reliable choice. For patients who really don't want a bypass, there are a few other "less guaranteed" options. One would be to try to widen the narrowed segment by cutting the outer muscular layer of the stomach. This is called a seromyotomy. Finally, you could cut out the narrow segment and sew the sleeve back together. I've seen all of these methods work successfully.
