Caption: An illustration of a strictureplasty, a surgical procedure used to treat built up scar tissue in the intestinal wall caused by inflammatory bowel conditions such as Crohn's disease. As scar tissue accumulates, the inner lumen of the intestine begins to narrow (stricturing), which can force bowel contents into fissures or ulcers. Surgery involves making a lengthwise cut along the narrowed section of intestine and suturing the two ends of the cut together. This process shortens the overall length of the bowel, but widens the affected area and resolves the stricture.
