Intestinal strictures are a common complication in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Symptoms due to intestinal strictures range from mild bloating and/or abdominal discomfort to complete bowel obstruction. Careful selection of available medical, endoscopic, or surgical therapies is critical for optimizing patient outcomes and is dependent on the effective characterization of the stricture. This article will focus on the diagnosis and classification of IBD strictures.
