The image display the Foley´s Catheter into the stomach. It began as a progressive dysphagia.

At first, he was  under care by another gastroenterologist, who after failing to dilatate the esophagus, referred the patient to surgery, where he got a Foley's catheter for Percutaneous feeding (surgical gastrostomy).

Due to this way of feeding, the patient suffers some  psychological distress. After three moths of having the  catheter, his family decided to look for a different opinion and came to us, where we offered to practice a balloon hydrostatic dilatation.
