Risk factors for Esophageal Stricture (narrowing):
 
 
Digestion  Gastric/Peptic Ulcers
 A chronic ulcer causes swelling and inflammation of the gastric and duodenal tissues. Over time, scarring may close the pylorus, the lower end of the esophagus, thus preventing the passage of food and causing vomiting and weight loss.
