Benign anastomotic strictures develop in the late period after colorectal surgery. Although many endoscopic interventions are recommended in the treatment, the first option is balloon dilatation. We report two patients with colorectal tumors. We performed laparoscopy-assisted low anterior resection and stapler anastomosis. On the sixth and ninth postoperative months anastomotic strictures occurred. One of the patients was symptomatic with diarrheaconstipation episodes and rectal bleeding but the other patient was asymptomatic and anastomotic stricture was revealed in control colonoscopy. The patients underwent over-the-wire balloon dilatation which is used in the treatment of achalasia. Both patients had two sessions of endoscopic dilatation.
