Our experience with I1 cases of cervical esophageal reconstruction following excision of the hypopharynx and conservative neck dissection is reported. For the reconstructive procedure, we utilized a full-thickness skin graft from the penis according to Kaplan and Markowicz in 2 cases and a deltopectoral flap according to Bakamjian in 9. Critical evaluation of the clinical follow-up has led us to prefer the second method. It seems, in fact, to be the solution of choice in this kind of surgery, for the deltopectoral flap offers a generous source of viable skin due to its good blood supply.
