A case of oesophageal obstruction following the removal of a tracheoesophageal valve by division is presented. The obstruction was caused by impaction of a portion of the valve at a previously undiscovered benign oesophageal stricture. The obstruction was resolved by interventional radiology with no long-term sequelae. To the best of our knowledge this complication has not been described previously.
