Cervical partial oesophagectomy and trans-oral direct end-to-end anastomosis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Many surgical procedures are used to restore the defect of the alimentary tract after cervical oesophagectomy. We present a case of a 69-year old woman, affected by a G2 squamous cell carcinoma of retro-cricodeal hypopharynx extend to the cervical oesopaghus. She underwent a direct reconstruction with a direct trans-oral anastomosis by a mechanical device and without any interposition. No postoperative complication was observed and there was a good functional result at 24 months after surgery. In a few selected cases, this technique can be usefully performed, avoiding gastric or intestinal resection and improving the quality of life.
